Let the Games Begin!

 “Let the games begin!” Those are the famous departing words the players hear before entering the game. A fight to the death it may be also called, but well known as The Hunger Games. The book has sold over 26 million copies of the series containing The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mocking Jay. Elena Wood (7) admits, “My favorite book of the series is Mocking Jay, because Katniss finally decides who she truly loves.” Every person has a favorite book out of the thrilling series The Hunger Games, but some people have different opinions. Just like Ryan Wheat (7) who states, “I’m not a huge fan of The Hunger Games. The concept overall is good, but the storyline was confusing for me. It was about two people who had to kill each other, but they loved each other, but not really. That’s what I don’t get.” Miabel Self (7) defends The Hunger Game series by saying “I love it, because it’s thrilling and adventurous and romantic! A little bit of everything for everyone to enjoy.”

It doesn’t matter how old you are to enjoy the fabulous series The Hunger Games! Even Mrs. Jackson admits, “I’ve read all of the books and I couldn’t put them down. The minute I read The Hunger Games I had to read Catching Fire, and when I finished that I had to read the final book Mocking Jay!” The  book takes you to a whole other world as soon as you start reading it, and the suspense is killing every fan out there to see The Hunger Games come out on March 23, 2012. Annie Hammond (6) excitedly said, “I can’t wait! It’s going to be such a good movie! I’m excited to see my favorite characters on the big screen.” Are you excited to see the new movie? The movie critics so far gave it 4 stars and say “It will leave you at the edge of your seat!” The fabulous series is truly a work of art in this generation and, as they say at the reaping of the games, “May the odds be in your favor.”
