Detalhes da Obra

The Hunger Games de Suzanne Collins

  1. 8112
    Ender's Game de Orson Scott Card (ekissel)
  2. 542
    Battle Royale de Koushun Takami (Kira, k1tsune)
    Kira: Battle Royale is more violent and lengthy but has a similar plot, with a class of children randomly selected each year to fight classmates to the death.
    k1tsune: Very similar.
  3. 5510
    The Giver de Lois Lowry (writecathy)
  4. 5311
    Uglies de Scott Westerfeld (elephantshoe, TheDivineOomba, notemily, electronicmemory)
    elephantshoe: futuristic world again, but the teens have to compete and fight to the death in a televised reality show.
    notemily: A similar oppressive government, with a mysterious place "outside" the dystopia that may or may not exist.
  5. 394
    Divergent de Veronica Roth (foggidawn, anytsuj, readr, Tsana, frankiejones, al.vick)
    readr: Both stories feature a young woman fighting to survive in a brutal situation.
    Tsana: Similar dystopian teenager must fight the system YA book.
  6. 363
    Graceling de Kristin Cashore (librarymeg, FantasyGirl2, saltypepper)
    saltypepper: The heroines' voices are very similar, maybe due to their similar response to the awful circumstances they find themselves in.
  7. 321
    The Maze Runner de James Dashner (smammers, christmas6391, BrrgleBee)
    christmas6391: "Teenagers thrown into a hostile environment with no way out because of their corrupt societies," can be used to describe both of these books. The difference? In The Maze Runner, none of them remember anything before waking up in the maze.
  8. 4514
    The Handmaid's Tale de Margaret Atwood (redpersephone, FFortuna)
    redpersephone: For adult or late teen fans, this has a female protagonist living in a dystopia where everyone has his or her own motives and secrets. Less gore, more sex.
    FFortuna: The Handmaid's Tale is more adult, but really not by much. They're very similar dystopias and both feature excellent, deep-first-person narratives.
  9. 291
    Tomorrow, When the War Began de John Marsden (BookLizard)
    BookLizard: The Hunger Games and Tomorrow, When the War Began have the same kind of feel - technically they're Science Fiction novels, but they feel more like survival stories with a bit of romance mixed in. I highly recommend both series.
  10. 359
    Brave New World de Aldous Huxley (TheDivineOomba)
  11. 306
    Fahrenheit 451 de Ray Bradbury (SandSing7)
  12. 263
    The Long Walk de Stephen King (LadyHazy)
    LadyHazy: (not for young adult readers though, it's a lot more violent)
  13. 242
    Matched de Ally Condie (Aerrin99)
    Aerrin99: Both books feature central heroines living in dystopian worlds that aren't quite what they seem. They each have an engaging romance and a story that digs behind the curtain of the society their characters live in.
  14. 182
    The Running Man de Stephen King (MyriadBooks, levasssp)
    levasssp: similar plot. The Running Man is a TV gameshow that pits one man against hunters in an arena. If he makes it to the end alive, he wins.
  15. 193
    The City of Ember de Jeanne DuPrau (Bitter_Grace)
  16. 141
    Unwind de Neal Shusterman (KenJenningsFan74)
  17. 120
    How I Live Now de Meg Rosoff (VaterOlsen)
  18. 110
    Birthmarked de Caragh M. O'Brien (PamFamilyLibrary, kathleen.morrow)
    PamFamilyLibrary: Intelligent, quickly paced YA dystopia.
    kathleen.morrow: Both have strong heroines in a dystopian society. Additionally, both have an interesting, but not overpowering romantic subplot.
  19. 101
    Surviving Antarctica: Reality TV 2083 de Andrea White (theexiledlibrarian, Caramellunacy)
    Caramellunacy: Both stories are young adult reality TV dystopias, but in very different ways. In Surviving Antarctica, the reality show is the last chance the protagonists have to earn money for an education - and despite initial hopes that they will be looked after, they soon realize that their lives matter only as much as their ratings.… (mais)
  20. 101
    The Knife of Never Letting Go de Patrick Ness (Usuário anônimo, aliklein, lottpoet)
    Usuário anônimo: Its just plain amazingly written

YES. I'm finally reading it. There.

*****

So glad the re-reading is complete. It's not that I dislike THG. The idea is interesting (though I still need to read Battle Royale), and in re-reading it almost exclusively with gender construction in mind, I appreciate it more. But dang, if the writing isn't lousy...so repetitive and obvious it's painful. Don't even get me started on the commas. ,,,,,,,, ( )

Well, I had such high hopes for this book, and the series, after initially reading the first chapter and then having to set it aside for a few months. I was really looking forward to getting back to it.

The first chapter was so compelling because it set up such a delicious plot possibility - what kind of world/life would we have if hunger became the motivation for bloodsport?

The number of possible parallels to today's current society were nearly boundless:
- hyper-competition in youth sports/academic programs
- hyper-aggressive parents calling for their children to hit/hurt(mame/kill in the book) their competitors
- anything goes if you win(survive)
- the people of the 1st world countries/USA(the Capitol) are willing to accept the deaths of children so long as it continued to ensure a peaceful, comfortable existence of those in power.

And so on.

The set up was nearly flawless, the subject captivating, the characters pitiable. The book just had to be good.

But it wasn't.

Instead of getting Lord of the Flies meets Gladiator we get Twilight meets Tarzan.

In it, we get a girl who likes one boy, there's another boy that likes her who she doesn't like back, and she's good with a bow and arrow. That's about it.

The few brief moments of social commentary that could have risen to such appropriately scalding cynicism instead are delivered as cold, dead lines muttered by a character and then passed on. The boy who comments that he doesn't want to forget who he is in the arena, that he wants to show to the Capitol that his spirit is still free ends up being as shallow and spineless and spunkless as the very Capitol he despises.

Instead of roaring lion, we got mewing kitten; instead of intellectual challenge we got "killing bad, love good"; instead of an opportunity to give our youth a chance to really think about HARD, haunting subjects, we get sugar-coated hyperbole.

Now, if Collins truly couldn't see the levels to which her story could rise, if her own intellect and talent were already stretched bringing this story to life, then she can be forgiven of the flaws and omissions that the work entails. But this doesn't feel like a writer stretched. This book smacks of a sell-out; of a pandering to a culture that believes you can't be both entertaining and intelligent at the same time and worse, that your audience can only be entertained.

Effectively what we got was cowardice instead of courage. Collins chickened out. Like her characters, instead of rising to greatness, she panders to entertainment. Indeed, her ultimate message seems to be, "Far better to live and be rich and famous, then die standing for something greater."

And it's no wonder why our children these days have no spines if this is the drivel we give to them and tell them is good writing.

The last hope I have is that somehow, Collins was forced by her editors to break up the hard hitting parts and shove them further back in series. The "milk before the meat". I'll finish it in the hopes that this first book was just the cleverly disguised hook. But somehow, I doubt it... ( )

Second time I'm reading this dystopian novel and the second time is just as great and attention stealing as the first time. Reading it again after watching the movie reminds me of all the small details that are missing when I watch the movie.

I love this series. It reminds me of how when bad things happen to you, and you think its over but something even worse happens.

Reading this novel a second time, I now notice little details that kind of foreshadow the rest of the novels, but I didn't notice it before.

Now for the characters, Katniss, I've always loved her self-sacrificing mindset when it comes to Prim. But her feelings for Peeta upset me. Although, I understand it, she didn't have the same feelings before, how can she really have those feelings only after a few days then a few weeks? Especially when she has such a one track mind about Prim and surviving. It's so disappointing for Peeta, his feelings are quite genuine. But I do admit, she is brilliant in understanding Haymitch's hidden messages to get sponsors. Always have been #teampeeta lol.

The ending of Hunger Games though hurt my heart. The betrayal Peeta must feel. To care about someone that has an emotional span of a rock. ohh poor Peeta. lol But it's such a great series!! ( )

The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

Could you survive on your own in the wild, with every one out to make sure you don't live to see the morning?

Sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives alone with her mother and younger sister, regards it as a death sentence when she steps forward to take her sister's place in the Games

But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weight survival against humanity and life against love.

I really enjoyed this book. I read it in within 24 hours. I didn’t know this at the time but this is Suzanne Collin’s first young adult novel. I couldn’t imagine growing up in a world like that having no control over your own life. Not having enough food to feed my family. So it leaves you without the choice of having to put your name in the lottery. It’s a system you aren’t meant to win. It will be interesting to see Peeta and Katniss relationship develop over the next few books. Happy reading everyone!! ( )

Het verhaal, vertaald uit het Engels, speelt zich af in de toekomst. Na een burgeroorlog is van Noord-Amerika het land Panem overgebleven, bestaande uit het welvarende Capitool met twaalf daaraan ondergeschikte districten, waarin veel armoede en onvrijheid heersen. In de jaarlijkse Hongerspelen moeten 24 kinderen, uit elk district een jongen en een meisje, strijden op leven en dood in een ‘Big Brother’-omgeving. Katniss Everdeen (16, ik-figuur) uit het 12e, armoedigste district springt in de bres voor haar jongere zusje Prim wanneer deze wordt uitgeloot. Na een wat aarzelend begin krijgt het verhaal vaart in het tweede en derde deel. Het thema is gedurfd: een strijd op leven en dood tussen twaalf- en achttienjarigen, als vorm van vermaak. Wie is de slimste overlever? De auteur creëert een eigen begrippenkader dat zijdelings doet denken aan Harry Potter. Ze combineert overlevingstechnieken uit de traditie van Jean Auels prehistorische romans met ultramoderne technologie. Het slot lijkt voorspelbaar, maar is dat niet. Spanning, romantiek en het open einde maken de lezer nieuwsgierig naar het volgende boek in deze serie, 'De Hongerspelen II: vlammen'*.

She reaches in, digs her hand deep into the ball, and pulls out a slip of paper. The crowd draws in a collective breath and then you can hear a pin drop, and I’m feeling nauseous and so desperately hoping that it’s not me, that it’s not me, that it’s not me.
As long as you can find yourself, you'll never starve.
