1182 words - 5 pages

Suzanne Collins is the author of The Hunger Games, which is an intense, suspenseful, and thrilling book and movie that contains many unexpected twists and turns. All of the readers and viewers of the Hunger Games confirmed that this is an astonishing movie and book. The book keeps you interested, because you’re turning each page with suspense. For the movie, you are just waiting to see what will happen next! I’ve heard many positive review about this book and the movie too! Therefore, these are the reasons of why I choose The Hunger Games.
The basic summary of The Hunger Games starts with Katniss, the main character, to go hunt with Gale, her friend. Every year the annual Hunger Games is held where two people from each district will fight for their life in the arena until there is only one person left alive. Katniss’s little sister, Prim is chosen, but not until Katniss volunteers to take her place and fight in the Hunger Games. Throughout the Hunger Games, Peeta makes alliances the Careers to protect Katniss. Shortly after, Katniss makes an alliance with Rue, but she got killed. Then, an announcement is made that two tributes from the same district can win. This causes Katniss to team up with Peeta, the tribute from the same district as her, but Peeta got seriously injured from Cato. Peeta’s leg is getting an infection and this may kill him . Though, Katniss and Peeta are working together to survive, but then there is the feast, where you can retrieve the the most essential item each district needs to live. Instantly Katniss knows that is where she can get Peeta’s medicine!
Katniss leaves for the feast, and fights for her life for that medicine, but Katniss gets an intermediate cut by her eyebrow. This medicine helps Peeta immensely. Now it is toward the end of the Hunger Games, and dog-like creatures were sent out in the arena. These dog-like creatures force Katniss and Peeta to face Cato. Katniss shoots Cato in his hand. Katniss and Peeta won, or so they think. Right then, the rules were transformed back into only having one victor. Peeta and Katniss do not want to kill each other. Instead, they were going to attempt to eat poisonous berry, so no one will have to kill the other. They were about to eat and swallow the berries, when the Gamemakers declared Katniss and Peeta victors! There is only one problem. Katniss outsmarted the Gamemakers by having the idea of both of them eat the toxic berries so they will die together. The Gamemaker were furious with her, so she had to convince them she was so in love with Peeta she was not aware and responsible for her actions. She did not only convince the Gamemakers, she convinced Peeta too!
The comparisons I was able to decipher between the book and the movie of The Hunger Games are slim. One similarity, is that in the beginning Gale said that he and Katniss can run away together and live in the woods. For the reaping, Katniss wears a blue dress. Also, she kept the mockingjay pin for the Hunger...
