"LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE TIME HAS COME
WELCOME TO PANEM'S SEVENTY FOURTH HUNGER GAMES..."
I am obsessed with The Hunger Games trilogy so it is only right that i share with you the books connected to it and its upcoming movie
THE HUNGER GAMES. THE OFFICIAL ILLUSTRATED MOVIE COMPANION.
As expected of a sure to be blockbuster book based film, an illustrated movie companion has come out. Fans of the trilogy hungry for more information and pictures from the film will not be disappointed. The companion has everything. The history of the book, its conceptualization, its writing, its evolution from book to film and most importantly, at least for me, the casting. As with every other fan, the only things i have seen of the movie are trailers, snippets and photos. But even so, i already know that the film has been perfectly casted.
The illustrated companion convinces me of this further. also interesting to see are the pictures of Panem, the Hob, Katniss' orange backpack, fashions at the Capitol, behind the scenes photos and of course the other tributes and characters such as Cinna, Effie and Haymitch. so if you can no longer wait or are just itching to know more about the movie, get this book. For sure you will enjoy the page size pictures of Katniss, Gale and Peeta (sigh*).
THE HUNGER GAMES TRIBUTE GUIDE
Imagine Caesar Flickerman writing an introductory book on the Hunger Games and its tributes. this book is its result.
The guide starts with an introduction to the Hunger Games' history before moving on to the districts with a brief description of each's specialty (District 1: Luxury. District 2: Masonry......). Then it describes the Reaping process where particularly in District 12, Katniss dramatically takes the place of her sister Primrose and thereby endearing herself to the viewing public for her self sacrifice.
Then there are the tributes. each has his/her own page with the basic details: name, gender, age, height and weapon.
Next is the train with a description of its interior and its purpose. Followed by the Remake center. Here District 12's stylist Cinna is singled out as he is known as a bit of a renegade and a true artist who is tasked to make over the tribute to watch: Katniss Everdeen.
The Tribute parade is then described in detail with everyone in awe of Cinna's creation: The Girl on Fire.
then the Training Center. it is mentioned that in every corner there are different weapons and courses to take such as the rope course, snares (which Katniss loves), camouflage and weights (both of which Peeta excels in). in the Individual Sessions, both Katniss and Peeta unexpectedly get good scores from the gamemakers. Finally in the interview with Caesar Flickerman, Peeta reveals his heart.
the guide ends with a description of the tribute's journey to the arena where 24 enters and only one comes out.
LET THE SEVENTY FOURTH HUNGER GAMES BEGIN!
