    Latest BookTube Video is up a totally serious take on writing Young Adult Lit The Written Review “Happy Hunger Games And may the odds be ever in your favor” Every year Panem post apacolyptic North America hosts a Hunger Games involving one female and one male representative from each of its twelve districts to fight to the death All of the Districts of Panem must watch the Games as a form of yearly entertainment when in actuality it's a power play put on by the Capitol the wealthiest of the districts For there to be betrayal there would have to have been trust first The Capitol uses the Games as a way to demonstrate the sheer helplessness of the other Districts and to keep the population cowed and in fearWhen Katniss's sister twelve year old Prim is chosen as this year's competitor Katniss volunteers to take her place Peeta a boy from the richer side of District 12 is chosen as the male representative I'm than just a piece in their Games Soon she and Peeta are whisked away to the Capitol a place of incredible wealth and heartbreaking cruelity And while Katniss has sworn to come back to her sister she really has to wonder what will be left of her if she returns “Here's some advice Stay alive” Honestly this was the best apocalyptic YA teen novel I've read this yearTo be fair this was one of the very first YA series I read so every time I re read it I am just overwhelmed with nostalgiaBut when I take off my rose tinted glasses I still think it's a pretty solid seriesThe characters are really well done I love how Katniss's motivation is both pure and ruthlessness and her personality isn't tainted with over the top self sacrificing eyerollingly awful simpering mess that I see in uite a few of the newer YA series Katniss's love for her sister humanized her otherwise stiff character Her pride and will to survive energized the novel and kept me absolutely hooked I appreciate that the smidge of romance does not overpower the novel Finally a YA novel that plot doesn't solely hang on a love triangle I love that it's of a survivalist story Overall really pleased with this novel cannot wait to reread the restAudiobook CommentsRead by Carolyn McCormick and she gave life to Katniss Loved the audioAnd here's another booktube video If you've ever wondered which literary world would be the best to live in wonder no longer cause there's a BookTube Video to answer that

    I was forced into watching Mockingjay Part II this weekend To clarify I watched the second part of the last Hunger Games movie without having read any of the books without having watched any of the moviesNeedless to say I was confused as fuckSo many uestions and thoughts ran through my mind as I watched the movie Why is Peeta so thin? Did that huge ass bruise really disappear from her neck the next day? Is Katniss supposed to look like she's about to burst into tears at any given moment or is that just Jennifer Lawrence? Woody Harrelson is in this movie? Hey it's Margaery from Game of Thrones Who's President Snow? What's a Mockingjay? Lesser Hemsworth is pretty hotWell you get the point I know how the book ended and I still have no idea who anyone is and neither do I know their names with the exception of Peeta Gale President Snow that Coin woman and Katniss Of course knowing how the book ended means I probably should read the first book so here I am the last person on earth to read The Hunger GamesAnd it was good It was really good My sister was right she usually isWhat else can I say that hasn't already been said? I loved it The world building was interesting although it helps that I've seen what it looks like on the big screen and Katniss is awesome One of the things my sister didn't like about the first movie is that the on screen Katniss was different from her portrayal in the first book I haven't watched that movie but I kind of see how the screen portrayal of Katniss might have bothered her Book Katniss is strong kick ass without being a Mary Sue She has a fierce love for her sister and she is manipulative and cunning She uses the prospect of romance to protect herself she has no ualms about using people and I love that about herTime to watch Movie #1

    Suzanne Collins has balls ovaries of steel to make us willingly cheer for a teenage girl to kill other children In a YA book Two reasons why this book rocks a It is not Twilight and b I really hate reality shows Seriously how long would it take for reality shows to evolve from Survivor to Hunger Games? Yes this book is full of imperfections It often reuires a strenuous suspension of disbelief It can cause a painful amount of eye rolling and shaking fist at the book pages Its style is choppy and the first person present tense gets annoying The story is simple and the message is heavy handed But is does set a better example for young impressionable pre teens than gushing stories about sparkly co dependency And here is an obligatory taken out of contest Twilight bashing uote “But just the fact that he was sparkling leads me to doubt everything that happened” So why did I add it to my to read list for my future hypothetical daughter? Because Katniss is cool and a badass She is fierce independent resourceful intelligent and skilled She is loyal to her friends and family She is a survivor She will never allow a guy to carry her around as though she is a delicate flower She skewers that apple in the pig's mouth with an arrow in front of the Gamemakers in the most awesome way imaginable For all that I love this imperfect surly prickly sullen and perpetually pissed off uick to jump to judgment and sometimes clueless girl And I love this book because despite The Hunger Games being YA literature that seems to hinge on the romantic puppy love the happiness of Katniss does not revolve solely around a cute male lead Yes there is a hated love triangle here eyeroll but there are other issues that occupy Katniss' mind such as the survival of her friends family and herself rather than just pining over a cute boy Unlike other so called books where a boyfriend of a few months dumping you is a valid reason for catatonia and almost suicide And yet we still get readers who divide themselves into the incredibly annoying Team Peeta and Team Gale Because clearly nothing else ever matters besides sappy love in a book about children murdering each other eyeroll Now here is what bugged me about the romance that DID make it into the book There is actually a LOST OPPORTUNITY here to have a YA book where people CAN be just friends where devotion and loyalty stem from friendship and respect and not from attraction Katniss and Peeta could have had plenty of other reasons to care for each other that don't include puppy love they are from the same district same school he gave her that bread she trades with his dad etc But alas that did not happen I understand that Collins had to cater to the way that YA publishers and Hollywood tend to view us the female audience At least Katniss escapes the perils of insta love But poor Peeta all of his actions are colored by him being Lover Boy and I think it detracts from his personality and reduces him from a kind compassionate person to a fool in love who'd do anything for Katniss only because of his physical attraction to her YeahRueOh Rue Now back to the GOOD Rue my favorite character Little fragile almost too perfect Rue who was clearly doomed from the start Who despite her appearance was neither weak nor helpless Whose view spoilerdeath scene hide spoiler

    A lot of things are troubling me about The Hunger Games A lot of things which I and perceive and which are not solely connected with this book but with the metaphor behind the words People attach themselves to fictional freedom without seeing what really something is and which unfortunately is here to stay because you can't wake a person who is pretending to be asleep You can’t make a shift on a deeper level if the only thing that attracts you to this book is – a vision of fight retaliation and the outcome of freedom Freedom of flesh In comparison to the freedom of and from your mind which is nowhere to be found And this is why I detest this book although detest is such a strong from the ego word Because the whole purpose of this story is to show how people shouldn’t sacrifice their children for the better of their communities and with the positive outcomes realise that we are so much stronger and yada yada THE WHOLE PURPOSE of this book should be that there shouldn’t even be in the first place a need to sacrifice members of our society for some other people to be amused And where after the battle of ''united'' people we heal and repair the damages for the better tomorrow The society cancer of western civilisation thinking Heal the damage never heal the cause of it But then we wouldn’t be talking here about the same book We would be discussing how humanity can help each other with being better with taking responsibility and with being open to each other And yet imagine this paradox we live in better as if the majority of population can even understand that we are in constant blood thirst to achieve peace With war comes peace While along the way we are trying to be better and safer Yet most people deliberately choose to live on the utmost lowest level of their existence In fear frightened of itselfAnd people read books which are so extreme in their bullshit And people connect with Katniss because she is the heroine She has managed to outsmart the system Instead of thinking that she was not even supposed be there in the first place Because we live in society that does this to their children ''No we don’t''''We do''''But children can learn how to fight''''You teach them to fight for individual puppeteers And instead of working on yourself how to achieve your inner peace you associate yourself again with the group because it feels better to be in the tortured crowd instead of being alone and awakened''''What are you talking about? It is just emo gibberish Leave Katniss alone And in the end it is just a book Why don’t you want people to read and educate themselves does everything have to be deep and meaningful can’t you just relax?''Yes everything has to be deep and meaningful since we are drowning in shit of meaningless and shallow The system as it is the plot of this book is just another evidence to show us how we are controlled That we are left barren from our true selves which we only find in empathy love towards each other and genuinely understanding that we are one and everything is one But on this provincialmarginalprimitiveemotional level so many took this book for granted And the only reason I am writing this review here the only reason I am giving it so much attention is to tell what is on my mind since it is so widely popular and since I have read it And one of the main reasons why I can’t really keep things light and popsy is because so many things are already deep down in gutter light and popsy and mainstream As if having money is any critieria for life as if not having your own free will and education and information means nothing And the other side of the rich coin is poverty with people who believe in symbols who are sidetracked with religions censured TV economy and utter lack of information circulation And a lot of people here are trying to disregard this review and want to reassure me that I am so terribly wrong BUT you have yet not seen what I am talking about and it is perfectly OK So I followed as well screaming Goodreads recommendations and I bought a book that is stupid violent and written so plainly but of course written for vast masses so they can be touched by fake social awareness Because it is fake but most of all it’s tragic And this is not a critiue toward Collins in my nature of a thinker and seeing her a person who shared her thoughts and which millions of people loved and connected with I am still a firm believer that the general public just didn’t understand what she was talking about And this is my silver lining Because it has been like this throughout centuries and with the biggest thinkers of our civilisation What they meant and wanted to show is definitely not what most of the public projected Because the mainstream public is a group of sheep not seeing anything properly but following and like a Tarzan screaming don’t you dare stealing my Jane from me As a metaphor don’t you dare telling me these uplifting emotions are not true when all in me about this book tells me that is correct and how people should live their lives And if the mainstream likes it uh then definitely that is not what it’s true It is just a constant reminder how so many things are left unrecognised while these superficial stories which evoke cheap emotions are always so hugely praised It could have been just a little story but never underestimate the obese octopus that is called In God And Country We Trust code red mentality Mentality of humans which are too ignorant beautifully naive and untouched basically with what is means to be socially aware And although this is a teen book it is deeply hurting and sickening because if you want to influence somebody of course you will influence the children – and yet there is nothing that children can learn from it They can learn some things we all need little courageous Katniss but on a deeper subtler level is it just an intravenous injection of Nothing and Numbing and Disconnected At least they read is one of the arguments And argument as fruitfull as at least they eat GMO food One food for the blind intellect other for the digestion which both results in basic survival without any interference of you in all of it Because it takes courage and guts and a pinch of anarchy to stop turn around and start uestioning what is handed For me the thought about giving this to a child is sickening especially because we live in this world where all the life criterias are upside down Because a child will not learn how things are vile and disturbing because Katniss told them through her delusional and hyperventilating focus but a child will learn about life’s cruelty and it will be touched by it sooner or later by uestioning everything that is served in front of it Because if it is served somebody is earning money and you are just getting fatter and sicker And the children will learn how to uestion if you teach them how to find not if you broadcast them the answers Not if you teach them through aggressive examples and if you keep the nation in cold sweat especially if you are lucky enough to live in the countries where oppression is not the issue but consumerism body image and mediocrity have you on the leash I am astonished with a fact that around 75000 Goodreads members read this book and that around 50000 of them rated it 5 stars What is it that fascinates them so much It’s disturbing because people obviously associate and find themselves in this book And it's about a girl Katniss Everdeen living in the far away future who was chosen to participate in a cruel Big Brother game in which 24 contestants children age 12 18 kill each other because live TV has become demanding and the public loves reality blood and violence That's it A little bit of undeveloped and unbelievable romance between her and two boys a little bit of her abandoned family problems a little bit of The 5th element movie political structure mutants and pop stylists It’s so screwed up In the beginning first 50 pages were well written There was suspense Katniss was sweet and witty but overall this book is a shitty meltdown Adding the ridiculous cliffhanger ending Some people here are using words like dystopian literature and then write essays about how this book is the core of it The core is pointlessly graphic and sadistic without any concrete message except of the negative this book is just proving that the world today is fucked up if this book is so successful I don’t see the point of reading about the fictional kids who are doing this to each other In a metaphorical way it is promoting political establishments of certain countries and that is getting tiring Not all people are eager to swallow the shit of general brainwashing Katniss being the heroine ironical uote marks Being loyal and darling and a role model Just wake up Life is happening and some pretty dark things are happening while you are thinking that Katniss is the representative of the club called liberation For me in a bookish way it stands for one bad one night stand kiss and forget But as always readers tend to bring fiction to their real life and just as many think that kittens and superheroes are comfort zones a lot of readers perceive this plot as their own little shrine But that is me not being in tune with the mainstream population which is too distracted with billboards Because it is easier because why protest why not simply take what you are given eat your GMO Monsanto's company hamburgers eat your cancer giving Nestle products and think that The Hunger Games are the best franchise ever like ever If you don't have any arguments about real life activism and if you think that there is deepness in this plot which I have yet not seen so you need to enlightened me just include North Korea or Hitler or ISISL or those poor people who are closed in Zara hangers who work nonstop ''somewhere'' in the world because obviously you are aware of the crisis although you don’t think you could show on the map but you have heard somewhere on Murdoch media This shit sells It's genuinely bad but excellently targeted You know it evokes pride and loyalty and massacring children freedom and scandal and Hollywood It goes very well with all the Kardashian filth As long as it sells sells sells And marketing agencies know that people are united when they are jealous when they want and they with those hamburgers want freedom Nobody is going to kill their Katniss in a goddam book Really? Take a look around you And then the punch line for this book comes from the so called activism from the shopping mall People who devour literature of this kind and think that everything is all right while in the same time fuck you are getting oozingly fat Bottom lineThis book is very shallow and MTV culture oriented like a classical example of easy consummated pop literature; I'm very surprised that it didn't come with some trash magazine subscription If it doesn't have savage brutality prize money and prefix ''media coverage'' then it won't be appealing and educational because surely this is how children of 21st century survive this techno media world; through examples of true moral issues and realistic outcomes Have another gulp of Coca Cola along the way while you listen to dubstep shit It saddens me when a violent hillbillish book is so popular What is there to truly identify yourself with Except if your chicken soup for soul are basic emotions which come with buy 1 get 1 free

    If I were a teenager or recommending this to a teen I might give it 3; as an adult I give it 2PLOTIt's a potentially exciting but gruesome story but most of the characters were rather flat much of the plot was predictable it's not hugely original; in particular it is VERY similar to the Japanese Battle Royale and there were too many flaws in the plot I fail to understand its very high ratingsPost apocalyptic America Panem is divided into a wealthy and technologically advanced Capitol and twelve subsidiary districts of oppressed people who exist in dire poverty with inadeuate food housing and health care and hardly any technology To reinforce the power of the Capitol by instilling fear in the population once a year two children from each region are selected by lots to fight to the death in a reality show If that were not bad enough the whole thing is utterly corrupt in multiple ways plus the public bet on the outcome and sponsors can sway the results Did I mention these are children? Some are as young as 12 though the narrator is 16 A compulsory full body wax on a teen seems rather pervy and who would want to bet on let alone sponsor a child killing tournament even if it's by helping one of the contestants? As the book keeps reminding readers one person's survival is only possible by the death of all the othersCRUELTY TO CHILDRENI realise that horrendous things are done to children around the world every day extreme poverty child soldiers sexual assault genital mutilation etc but in none of those cases is the sole intention that all but one child dies and nor is it organised by the government for a sick combination of sport entertainment punishment and profit Humans often lack compassion but I was never convinced by Collins' world especially the fact this outrage has continued for three generations it's the 74th games apparently without the Capitol even needing to invoke gods or supernatural powers to justify their cruelty Could a barbaric annual tournament really be such a powerful incentive not to rise up in all that time? I don't think soBIG ISSUESNevertheless it tackles some big themes that are particularly pertinent to teens the nature of friendship; divided loyalties; the difference between love and friendship; who to trust; whether the ends justify the means; the need to repay favours; the danger of power wealth and celebrity; the corrupting influence of reality TV; the need for independence and whether you can trust a parent who abandons you It all feels rather laboured to me but it might not if I were a teen which only reinforces my puzzlement at the number of adults who have enjoyed it I must be missing somethingNARRATIVE STRUCTURE Nearly half the book is backstory and preparation for the games; the remainder is a tale of hunter and hunted I predicted the main plot twist less than a uarter of the way in and the fact that Katniss is telling the story limits the possible outcomes but the suspense was broken when it was made explicit way before the end There are some other twists between then and the final page but by then I was rather annoyed with the whole thingIMPLAUSIBILITY AND INCONSISTENCIESIf I'd enjoyed the book I would have found it easier to suspend my disbelief but as it was I was constantly irked by uestions and inconsistencies The contestants and their parents and grandparents have been forced to watch the games every year of their lives I suppose they had become inured to it but on the other hand that meant they knew the horror of it I just didn't believe there was as little fear in them as there appeared to be given that they are children Participants don't want other participants to know where they are yet sponsor gifts occasionally drop out of the sky via silver parachute; not a risk apparently It's all filmed by numerous invisible floating cameras I can buy that but that somehow includes filming inside a cave that is virtually sealed I can't How and why would any of these participants be able to measure time to within half hour intervals? How big is Panem? It can only be a tiny part of the USA because each district specialises in only one thing coal mining agriculture etc and has just one town suare that can accommodate everyone 8000 people in District 12 and yet it's a day's train journey from District 12 to the Capitol It doesn't seem like a very plausible settlement pattern in a post disaster world even given the totalitarian regime concentrating people in a few centres makes it easier to observe and perhaps control them but it also creates opportunities for opposition movements to developCOMPARED WITH LORD OF THE FLIESThere are some similarities with Lord of the Flies my review here but although The Hunger Games is likely to have appeal to modern teens I think there are at least two crucial differences In LotF one person's survival is not necessarily at the cost of everyone else's It is even possible that they could all survive LotF has much depth and symbolism it tackles original sin; the mystical Beast; leadership tribal allegiance and group dynamics including bullying and attitudes to difference and minor disability and the importance of ritual and beliefThe second point is what makes LotF a better book in my opinion Of course there are other obvious parallels with extreme reality shows such as Survivor and I'm a Celebrity get me out of here but the fundamental differences are not just that contestants in those shows do not fear for their lives but that they are adults who have chosen to enter I TRIED TO ENJOY ITAny fans who read this will now hate me I wanted to enjoy this book and I read it all the way through making notes as usual but to no avail Sorry
