Description du produit
The moment the anthem ends, we are taken into custody. I don't mean we're handcuffed or anything, but a group of Peacekeepers marches us through the front door of the Justice Building. Maybe tributes have tried to escape in the past. I've never seen that happen though.
Once inside, I'm conducted to a room and left alone. It's the richest place I've ever been in, with thick, deep carpets and a velvet couch and chairs. I know velvet because my mother has a dress with a collar made of the stuff. When I sit on the couch, I can't help running my fingers over the fabric repeatedly. It helps to calm me as I try to prepare for the next hour. The time allotted for the tributes to say good-bye to their loved ones. I cannot afford to get upset, to leave this room with puffy eyes and a red nose. Crying is not an option. There will be more cameras at the train station.

My sister and my mother come first. I reach out to Prim and she climbs on my lap, her arms around my neck, head on my shoulder, just like she did when she was a toddler. My mother sits beside me and wraps her arms around us. For a few minutes, we say nothing. Then I start telling them all the things they must remember to do, now that I will not be there to do them for them.

Une superbe magnifique belle édition collector du 1er tome de cette saga juste géniale !
Il s'agit d'un livre relié avec couverture noire où il y a une flèche dorée, un effet de découpe des pages style "ancien temps" très beau et, pour couronner le tout ; un coffret tout aussi magnifique (désolée, il me manque des superlatifs^^) avec le geai moqueur doré en relief pour protéger le livre !
Tout ça pour un prix plus que correct franchement merci !
Un bémol ? Mais pourquoi n'ont-ils pas fait cette version collector pour le second et le troisième tome ?????? Hein, pourquoiiiiii ? :'-( (Peut-être pour le 10ème anniversaire ?^^)
Encore MERCI au vendeur ThriftBooks-Sierra Nevada !!!
Un proche ne m'en avait dit que du bien, la film était sur le point de sortir alors pourquoi pas.
Pour faire un rapide tour de l'aspect, le livre rend bien avec sa couverture noire basique et les quelques dessins la parcourant : simple, mais efficace.
J'ai eu d'abord du mal à m'adapter à la narration vue à la première personne. Habitué depuis quelques milliers de pages à être à l'extérieur de l'histoire et donc à en savoir un peu plus que les personnages, il m'a fallu plusieurs pages pour "me glisser entièrement" dans la peau de l'héroïne.
Cela ne m'a donc pas aidé à apprécier les premiers chapitres. Le rythme était, de plus et à mon goût, assez lent. Mais ce n'est que pour mieux installer les bases qui serviront admirablement bien la suite du livre. Dés la "récolte", nous tombons dans une spirale de rebondissements en tout genre, très bien distillés et rarement (ça arrive) prévisible. C'est ainsi que nous avançons page après page, se débarrassant d'un sommeil pourtant envahissant histoire d'en lire toujours plus.
L'histoire profite aussi des personnages, principaux ou secondaires. Tantôt attachant, tantôt détestable, on ne peut s'empêcher d'éprouver un quelconque sentiment à l'égard de chacun d'entre eux.
La magie opère donc jusqu'au chapitre final, et même plus loin encore : car il me hâte de mettre la main sur la suite pour poursuivre mon exploration d'un monde pas tant étranger que ça.
Je conseille fortement ce livre à tous les adolescents et même les moins adolescents (ma sœur de 25 ans, mes frères de 15 et 22 ans et moi-même, 20 ans, nous sommes régalés ! De même que mes cousins dont les âges vont de 12 à 20 ans)
Ceux qui aiment les livres d'action, de suspens et d'émotions fortes, ceux qui aiment les héroïnes au caractère combatif, sauvage et impulsif, ceux qui aiment les pieds de nez aux autorités combinés à l'amour fraternel, devraient trouver ici leur bonheur ! Je vous conseille aussi la suite de ce livre !
Pour ce qui est de l'aspect du livre, cette version Foil Edition est plutôt cool !
Les deuxième et troisième livres sont presque aussi bon et agréable que le premier. Donc si vous aimez la première, n'hésitez pas à obtenir tous les trois.
Enjoyable and easy to read. It probably won't become a literary classic that future generations will read. But very enjoyable for now.
The second and third books are almost as good and as enjoyable as the first. So if you like the first, don't hesitate to get all three.

I only came across the films last year, I was very late to the party in that regard but I fell in love with the films instantly and I watched them often.
A few weeks ago at work I found myself singing verses of "the hanging tree" so much so that 2 others in the office were also joining in and it made me want to watch the movies again they were just that good.
Then the pandemic got worse and last Monday was my last day at the office, I desperately needed something to do and of course watched the movies I thought of only a few weeks prior.
It hit me then that I never even read the books, normally I read the books first as they hold so much more information than the films so instantly I bought all 3 on Kindle and it's kept me occupied.
They are fantastic! I had the advantage of the films being fresh in my mind so when I read the books from Katniss's point of view I was already picturing what was going on when she was receiving things like shocking news for example (spoiler alert) when they are drawn back to the quarter quell. When you read the books you are seeing things from her perspective only but from the film you are seeing how it's been manipulated and brought about. So for me I was able to picture everything at once which made it more of an enjoyable read.
The books hold so much more information than the films showed, don't get me wrong the films are brilliant but you always get more from a book.
The books and the films show realism, even if it's fiction there are things written and shown that are relatable to everyone. The author is fantastic at portraying this.
It merely depends on your own life and what you've faced as a person, if you found yourself relatable/similar to Katniss's character and I don't mean the fictional parts I mean the realistic ones like dealing with poverty, enduring grief, crippling fear. (I could go on but this review is already long enough) you may act differently to her character or you may sympathize with her and when I read the books I found that I sympathized. Beforehand I was indifferent. It was only after reading through first person I got an understanding of what kind of person she is.
Suffice to say for me I gave the rating 5 stars, I read some of the lower ratings to get an idea of what I was getting into and many of them were so low, a lot of this was down to the miss-selling of books. (Covers were not portrayed right etc)
I found them gripping and it took me two days to finish them, I'd happily read them again. I like where all books take you and that's away from wherever you are. So for two days I spent it in the Hunger games listening to Katniss tell her story and I recommend these books to anyone who wishes to escape for a little while.
Stay safe everyone 🙌
When we think of the Romans watching gladiators killing each other for entertainment, we imagine that things have changed, since then. Not in The Hunger Games, set in the near future, however. In this dystopian future, in the country of Panem, the population watch on giant screens, the 12 participants (tributes) in the Hunger Games fight for their lives, until there’s only one survivor.
An unlikely situation? When we can see how viewers avidly watch reality programmes, frequently to observe others being humiliated, isn’t the next step a return to Roman times, and watching these victims die? Let’s hope not. Perhaps recent events in the reality world, will put a stop to this - none too soon.
At any rate, when the reading circle selected this book, I put aside my feelings, and in the main, my conclusions were very positive. Firstly, the author cleverly spaces out the introductions to the characters in such a way that we can get to know them, and when we do, we find that many of them are appealing and worthy of affection. The main character in particular, Katniss, is very likeable. Seen through her own eyes, she is frequently grumpy, and doesn’t show affection to those closest to her, but in her behaviour, it is possible to see her as heroic and altruistic and a good person. She forms attachments to members of the group of ‘tributes’ and does not want to kill them. The author allows her to remain heroic, and when she does kill, it appears to be justified. Her affection for her young sister and for Rue, another young character, also makes one warm to her.
The book is also full of action and only on a couple of occasions did I feel it was getting wearing. Once was just before the end of the first part, when I found the amount of hardship inflicted on the two main protagonists was becoming relentless, and also towards the end, it seemed to once again be just too much. On the whole, though, I thought it was well structured.
It seemed to me surprising that a book with this theme would be written for teenagers, and published by Scholastic, the children’s book publisher, (Spoiler Alert) but the romance between Katniss and Peeta is very innocent. I couldn’t quite believe in Katniss’s disbelief in Peeta’s love for her. But perhaps that enables her to feel able to act a part. I was hurrying to finish the book and was a bit disappointed with the end - which also seemed to go on a bit too long, I thought. I had hoped for something more definite, and it was quite ambivalent.
On the whole, I good read, though. I'd give it four stars.
OMG what a story, what a book. This is Amazing. I loved this book. This book one of the best books I have read in a long time. A lot more happens in the book then it does in the film. Katniss is such a strong and principle character. She volunteers herself so her sister doesn't have to go into the games and possibly die.
This book is a set in the future, where the whole country is called Panem. The Capital is the richest and there are districts, the higher the district you are the poorer the district is. So hunger is a continues problem. The Capital puts on a reality game show every year called 'The Hunger Games' where 1 boy and 1 girl are picked at random from each district. Then it is a fight to the death, where there is one person left standing, because that person has killed all the others. That person is the winner of The Hunger Games.
At the age of 12 you have to have your finger pricked and write your name below your blood. Then your name is put into a jar and if your name is picked, you are to go into The Hunger Games.
This is pleasure watching TV for the people of the Capital who love the Game and the excitement of it all. The training all the districts have to go through, there are TV appearances, interviews, makeup, dresses. The other Districts have to watch in Horror while their children are danger and the risk of them dying because the other districts are reminded constantly about the Uprising that happened that ended District 13 and why these Games are put on, so all the Districts can learn not to go up against the Capital.
The book is in the POV of 16 year old Katniss Everdeen. She lost her father in a mining accident years ago and her mother fell into a deep depression and it has been Katniss who has had to feed herself, her younger sister Primrose and the mother by going into the woods hunting animals and selling them at the market, which is off limits.
Her younger sister is chosen at the Reeping to go into the games, but Katniss won't let that happen so she volunteers herself to go instead of Prim.
The boy chosen Peete also the same age go into the Capital with their mentor Haymitch, who was a Hunger Games Winner when he was a boy.
The pear are put to the limits with training. Pushing themselves to breaking point.
The Hunger Games is a valiant book because it's children that are killing and dying. Having said that it is written in a way that you didn't feel that way when you read it. Because it's set in the future and all the districts children that are taking part in the games it is normal for them, because they are used it, we, as the reader are not used to it so it's shocking for us. But that is what I loved about this book. It was shocking, sad and sometimes terrifying but, Katniss makes you rout for her, makes you want her to be the winner even if she has to do something that is shocking.
This year there is a twist in the Hunger Games but, don't get to comfortable this is the Capital and they like their entertainment.
This book made me so tired, it just doesn't stop. I wanted at one time wished I could jump into my kindle and kick some booty at some of the people at the Capital because they were seeing entertainment when really, its a kill or be killed game, and they are children who are being killed or made to kill.
Its a fantastic book even if it sounds really morbid you will not at all be disappointed in this book at all.
I am already prepared to read the next books, however, I am going to split up the reading and choose something else first. I had seen the first film but could not fully remember the story. I had high hopes for the first book and I was not disappointed. Katniss Everdeen lives in District 12 of Panem in North America with her widowed mother and her younger sister, Primrose, Prim. Following the death of her father in the coal mines Katniss has no choice but to become to main wage earner and provider for her family by any means possible. She uses a variety of skills, in particular, the ability to use a bow and arrow, and techniques she has developed, along with the help from her friend Gale, to provide for her family.
Every national of Panem is entered into the reaping between the ages of 12 and 18. A person can be entered on more than one occasion depending on their financial status and needs. Every entry into the reaping gives a family more food and support for the family, this is known as tesserae. Katniss, at the age of sixteen, has her name entered twenty times. Gale, at eighteen, is entered forty-two times. Prim has only been entered once as Katniss will not allow her to be entered anymore. Unfortunately and unexpectedly Prim is pulled from the selection, Katniss nominates herself to takes Prim's place and a whole range of incidents and unexpected outcomes are waiting for Katniss. in my opinion, the Capitol use the Hunger Games as a way to keep the less privileged and lower social classes in their "rightful" place. Unable to uprise against the Capital as had previously happened in Panem. The Capital use this barbaric and, frankly, ridiculous technique to show the others who is in charge. What absolutely baffled me was not that the Capitol were sending people into a controlled environment to slaughter one another for no other reason than being told to, but the fact that they were only, at a push, teenagers which were being forced to act in such a way. This system definitely had a sense of William Golding's, Lord of the Flies. The, to be perfectly honest, children are expected to murder, slaughter and if they feel like it, eat one another to survive. What an awful concept, just to keep the Capital happy with their control.
Katniss is the female chosen to enter the arena and Peeta is the male chosen. Peeta makes a confession during his pre-contest interview about his feelings towards Katniss. Katniss is unsure if this declaration is true or whether Peeta has found a way to appeal to the audience for both their sakes. The couple were separated for a large period of the story. However, a change in the rules means that both Katniss and Peeta could survive and leave the arena together means they need to strive to not only stay together but survive. During this time together the pair are able to visit and discuss their feelings towards one another. It is an unfair and controversial last minute rule change which makes us think that perhaps the couple will not end their story together. A Romeo and Juliet moment has the Gamemakers have a quick change of heart. I did feel very concerned for the lovable characters, were they going to survive? Would another contestant try and challenge them to the death? Would they ever get back to District 12?
There are a number of people to "help" Katniss and Peeta to prepare and progress through the games. Cinna, Katniss' stylist. He becomes a dear friend to Katniss when no one else will listen to her problems and worries before entering the games. Effie Trinket, the Capital representative for District 12. A lady who has never found anything interesting or rewarding come from the district until Katniss and Peeta. Haymitch Abernathy, the only ever Hunger Games winner to come from District 12, now a drunken...bafoon. Other than Gale, Katniss has an affiliation with Madge Undersee, the Mayor's daughter. Madge provides Katniss with a keepsake from District 12, the notorious Mockingjay pin which is seen as a stand to the Capitol as the bird was a mistake made on their part. The Mockingjay bird helps Katniss on a number of occasions through the books and brings her a little reminder from home each time. There is without no question of a doubt that Katniss would not have been anywhere near as successful in The Games without the help from Rue from District 11. Rue becomes Katniss' friend and companion for a period of time in The Games and with her help, they continue to survive and strive. Well done Rue, well done!
I would absolutely, definitely recommend this book to someone else. It has been such a good read and I can't wait to read the next two books. I did feel like Katniss is slightly self-centred and self-absorbed about her own gains and benefits. She doesn't often take in the thoughts and feelings of Peeta and has more interest in what Gale may be thinking of her whilst he is watching the games unfold. The games have a feeling of Big Brother, minus the murder...well, who knows what the series may lead to, in order to encourage viewings! The contestants are constantly watched and constantly need to be on guard for what they are doing and saying.
I look forward to the next books. To read more on my reviews visit threeminutesfortyfiveseconds.blogspot.co.uk
