==== ====All About The Hunger Gameshttp://www.treatgene.com/the-hunger-games/==== ====The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is one of those books that was originally written for aYoung Adult audience but crossed over into the waiting hands of adults. There is something sopowerful about a well told story that transcends the intended age group and draws in readers of allages. It has often been said that some of the best books for adults are found between the coversof young adult fiction.And so it proved with The Hunger Games. Released in 2008, the first book in an eventual trilogywas so beautifully written that it garnered praise from all corners of the literary globe. Critics, fellowauthors and readers were taken by the journey of Katniss Evergreen and her role as a sacrificialwarrior, manipulated by the state to perform in brutal gladiatorial style games between childrenthat could have only one victor.Collins managed to infuse this brutal dystopian future with moments of pure beauty that rival anyin modern fiction. Written in first person, readers journeyed with Katniss as she is chosen,prepares for battle before the eyes of a viewing nation, sees the larger hands at work and finallyrealises her place in the world as she begins to fight for her life against other children bent on theirown survival in the arena.Despite a rather inconclusive ending that placed The Hunger Games as only a small part of alarger story arc, the book was embraced. The second book, Catching Fire, continued the story butinvariably added little to Katniss story as the setting again became the arena and survival thegoal.Mockingjay, the final book of the trilogy was released in August 2010 and for many was anunsatisfying conclusion to what could have been a truly memorable series. Collins places Katnissagain in the hands of others and much of the story is told as she is manipulated into differentsituations and reacts accordingly.The Hunger Games remains a book full of beauty and horror and a story that is worth telling. Forthe other two books in the series they are great lessons on writing and how to give your characterfocus amongst the events of plot.Inger loves stories and loves to write.
