Description

Praised by writers from Stephen King to Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins' New York Times bestselling Hunger Games trilogy is dark, captivating and deeply thought-provoking. Part straight-up survivalist adventure, part rich allegory and part political thriller, the series has become a new YA favorite. A film version of the first book, The Hunger Games, starring Academy Award-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence, was released in March 2012. The Girl Who Was on Fire - Movie Edition offers even more to think about for readers already engrossed by the Hunger Games and its movie adaptation. From the trilogy's darker themes of violence and social control to reality television, fashion and weaponry, YA writers explore in this collection the Hunger Games to reveal exactly how rich, and how perilous, protagonist Katniss' world really is.show more

Our customer reviews

It took me longer than usual to finish this book, not because it's flat or dull, but because it has too much information to absorb fully in a short time. The Girl Who Was on Fire is a wonderful collection of essays from some of the most popular authors in the YA community on the various aspects of The Hunger Games. These authors share their individual insights and perspectives on the book and/or the series - their topics ranging from the characters, the fashion, the scientific aspects, to the mentality of the Games itself. 'Love' plays an important role in Mary Borsellino's Your Heart Is a Weapon the Size of Your Fist. In her essay, she states that love can be your greatest strength, but it can also be your greatest weakness. Elizabeth M. Rees' Smoke and Mirrors discusses the ways the Capitol uses to fool and deceive others, and how these tactics work. On the other hand, Bent, Shattered, and Mended by Blythe Woolston tells us about the impact of the Games on the surviving tributes, how the horror of it all affects their lives as an aftermath of the Games. Reading The Girl Who Was on Fire was a great experience for me. The essays are thought-provoking and deep in meaning. They made me think about many things, and I felt enlightened more than once while reading the book. Are you a fan of The Hunger Games? If yes, then I'm sure you'd enjoy these essays immensely. Even if you're not a fan of the series, this book will prove to be a valuable source of knowledge. What we can be sure of is that The Girl Who Was on Fire is a treasure trove waiting to be discovered. So, what are you waiting for?show more
