My name is Bryce. I am 17 (18 on March 30, I feel like the movie is an early birthday gift!), and I live in Pennsylvania, USA! <3
What is it about The Hunger Games that you like so much?
It’s unlike anything I’ve ever read. I try to find books that aren’t mainstream, and this is by far the most non-mainstream book I’ve found. If you put the amount of time I read it together from start to finish, it would be about three hours. I was on page 60 when I started this morning, and finished the rest in two hours. I almost cried at every death, every twist, and for sure at the last page. No book has ever held my attention so much. I could not put it down. I didn’t want to.
Who is your favorite character in The Hunger Games?
Katniss, hands down. She put her life on the line daily for her family, and without even thinking, volunteered herself to save her sister. She is so brave, and she has this charm to her. Not to mention her archery skills are extremely amazing. She’s very caring. The fact that she cares so much about Rue, someone she should be fighting against, left me in a state of awe. And when Rue was attacked, how Katniss stayed with her until the end… That’s something to admire.
What are your expectations for The Hunger Games movie?
The trailer alone is magical. Based on what I’ve seen so far, I’m going to be on the edge of my seat, even though I’ve read the book. I plan on going to see the movie at the midnight release, and several times after. I have a feeling I’m going to need a lot of tissues, and maybe some berries to snack on, just not nightlock!
What’s your favorite quote?
Oh no, don’t make me choose… Pretty much the entire scene of Rue’s death is my favorite. That sounds awful, I know, but it’s just so touching. It shows how compassionate Katniss really is, and that she was not made for the Hunger Games in the first place. She’s loyal, and she stayed with her friend until the end. Her inner monologue about putting the flowers around Rue is my favorite, because, while doing something nice for a fallen comrade, she is showing the government that they aren’t objects, but people.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
This book will forever be my favorite. I honestly don’t want to read anything else (except the rest of the series). This will be a book that my kids will read, and hopefully they will enjoy it as much as I do. It teaches so many lessons if you look hard enough. And you can find a bit of yourself in each character. This book worked its magic on me.
