The Hunger Games By: Suzanne Collins
This Background symbolises the importance of the book vs the movie.

Main Character Study
Dynamic: She under goes a lot in this book. She is put into the capitol, she falls in love with a boy and she witnesses many deaths (some of her own doing).
Static: Peeta went through the same stuff as Katniss but did not change much in this book. He had always loved Katniss and he already knew so much about her
Main Character Study 2
Dynamic: In the beginning he had absolutely no hope for Katniss and Peeta. He had seen so many tribute that he mentored die. In the end he showed that he cared and was happy that they had made it.
Static: Effie's personality never really changed throughout the book. She was always a stuck up rich woman who only cared about her hair.
The Hunger Games is in:
1st person from Katniss' eyes
Figurative Language
1: Quote: "As long as you can find yourself, you'll never starve."
Page: 52
Untill Katniss learned to hunt she had never found herself. Once she began to hunt she learned how to provide for her family and they will never starve.

2: "Riiiipp! I grit my teeth as Venia, a women with aqua hair, and gold tattoos above her eyebrows, yanks a strip of fabric from my leg, tearing out the hair beneath it."
Page: 51
Katniss is being waxed for the games and it makes a loud ripping noise.
Figurative Language 2
3: Quote: "My legs, arms, torso, underarms, and parts of my eyebrows have been stripped of the stuff, leaving me like a plucked bird, ready for roasting."
Page: 61
The capitol can pick and praw at the tributes so they have everything and the tributes have nothing. That is why she is like a pluked bird.
Dont let anyone control who you are and who you want to be because you are you not anyone else. Pgs. 334-336
Authors Tone
The authors tone was intense and captivating. you were always on the edge of your seat.
Readers Mood
There were some parts that were sad, some happy, some dull, and some overwhelming. To be honest I ended up crying at the end when they got out of the arena.
3.) What is your over all response of the book?
I thought that I was not going to like it because I had ready seen the movie but it was so much better than the movie and it was definitively more detailed and informative.
4.5 out of 5 stars
Peeta and Katniss fought Cato to the death with help from mutant dogs that resembled the fallen tributes. They did indeed succeed and got out of the arena.
