It was amazing,it was an awesome book,lots of sci-fi!

While it provides correct information and basic ideas, plots and incites for a die hard fan it offers little to think about. All the information can be found within the book without having to ponder the big ideas like who is real to blame for killing the tributes and how different is Panem from the world we live in today.
If your looking for something more in depth i would recommend The Hunger Games and philosophy or the Panem Companion.

Panduan sederhana tapi sangat berguna bagi pembaca Trilogi Hunger Games yang sering lupa nama tokoh dan asal-usul mereka. Paling berguna sebagai panduan saat menikmati versi filmnya atau saat membaca buku ketiga, Mockingjay
For a relatively short book, it's a pretty good overview of the HG trilogy--characters, events, connections to history, events, explaining what dystopian means. I read it in preparation for a teen book discussion I'm helping facilitate and it was helpful to have it as a refresher. Some parts were repetitive--for example, the same event is summarized from Peeta's and Katniss's point of view, which could maybe have been combined or written differently, but that's a nitpicky comment and for teen re...more
This is the kind of companion that I am NOT looking for. This book has a few boring quizzes, rehashed plot summaries, and descriptions of characters and things using details I already knew. This is a good beginners guide, perhap for someone who just saw the movie or read the book. It is not intended for people who've read all the books several times and want new insight on the novels because that is something this guide completely lacks.
excellent to have to learn about each tribute, each district, how Panem became Panem....the Dark has a diagram of the clock shaped arena in the Quarter Quell so you can better understand the clock-like map Peeta draws on a leaf in Catching Fire.
After the first book in the trilogy I knew there was a lot under the surface of the story that I wanted to learn about. This book was very simple and thorough.
Great companion to the Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay! It's a good discussion book and has some fun quizzes in it! (Nice illustrations too.)

"The Guide to The Hunger Games" pretty much rehashes everything from the books and sums it up. It has some quizzes and some history notes (relating Collins' world to Rome and Myths and other books and stuff).

There is a couple of tidbits of new information but not a lot. This is a good book for anyone who needs a quick rundown of the series before the movie arrives.

My hope is that Collins' penned "World of the Hunger Games" is better and actually includes a map of the country. I only have to wait...more
All these opinions, thoughts and ideas have made me literally go bonkers! Have you checked my Tumblr Update lately?
