My favorite part was when Thresh, the male tribute from 11, bashes Clove’s skull, the girl from 2, with a rock to avenge his districts’ partners’ death. I thought, “Wow” he must have really cared and he must be really strong to do that.
My favorite character is Cato, the 18 year old boy from district 2, because he’s strong, smart, and a leader. He kills 7 tributes and places 3rd out of 24 because it’s a book about someone else. If this was real life he would have dominated.
The point of this book is the effect of war. My reaction was I immediately want to read the next book in the series.I loved this book and so will you. I felt kind of sad reading the book because you get attached to the characters and then they go and kill them off. This book has something for everyone like action, adventure, romance, comedy, and suspense.
I recommend this book for ages 10 and up. Younger kids should not read it because they could be afraid and have nightmares. I think boys would like this book more because of the action, even though the main character is a girl.
The movie is a lot like the book, but I recommend reading the book first or you may be confused. If they had put every little detail from the book into the movie, it would have been at least four to five hours long. Reading the book gives you more details.
