No aporta nada nuevo, pero es una gran oportunidad para los fans adictos a "Los juegos del hambre" que puedan echar un vistazo a cómo cobró vida el libro a la pantalla. La fotografía es espectacular.

No es que tenga mucho texto, ya que solo habla un poco de La historia de Panem, sus habitantes, los distritos y los juegos del hambre vividos por Katniss y Peeta, como mucho hay unas 20 páginas de texto y estoy siendo exagerada.
Nos muestran las imágenes de forma cronológica a la película y hay muy buenas imágenes y datos que nos acercan más a Panem y a sus habitantes.
También nos cuentan cosillas curioias entre algunas citas tanto d ela película como coment

Anyone who knows me, knows I am a massive Hunger Games fan - we're talking obsession here! So anything to do with HG is going to be devoured by me.
Being broke - I couldn't afford to buy this, plus I didn't know much about it, so I requested it from the library. There was a delay with the order as it only just came in this week and I had totally forgotten about it.
When it arrived I was excited and had a quick flick - and noticed a lot of pictures, but it looked cool so I put it in my bag to take

Much like with the Tribute Guide, this book has nothing new for real fans of The Hunger Games.

The book itself looks really nice and includes some pictures I don't remember seeing officially released elsewhere, but it's basically just a summary of the movie (and a bad one at that). It provided completely random pieces of information and then left out other, more worthwhile parts of the storyline (like the changes in rules during the games that allows Katniss and Peeta to team up). Plus, it oddly

Este libro lo gané en un concurso cuando fui a ver "En Llamas". Me gustó. Pero, lo cierto es que al menos la edición en español, no agrega información súper relevante que morimos por conocer. Me pareció algo muy infantil y claramente no se compara en absoluto con la saga escrita por Suzanne. Es lindo para el fanático y se gana un lugar en la biblioteca junto a sus "padres", pero realmente no sé si vale la pena su compra. Estoy agradecida de haberlo ganado y tiene imágenes increíbles de la pelícu ...more

Se trata de una narración en fotografías de la historia de los juegos del hambre.
Me ha encantado ver las fotos porque al ir narradas se hacen más interesantes las escenas y las puedes contemplar al detalle.
Pero lo que es la narración o lo que debería aportar o ahondar algo más en la historia y en el mundo en sí de los juegos del hambre no aporta nada.
Sin duda vale la pena por las fotografías <3

This is probably an even better refresher than the other one I just reviewed with ton more pictures. This one actually acts much more as a summary than the other though.

Bastante churro la verdad, fotos muy grandes y letra muy, muy gorda. Explica algunas cosas interesante, pero en conjunto no es más que una redacción de 4 páginas. Pero por 3 euros y por friki, pues está en mi colección

Οι "Αγώνες Πείνας", μετά την τεράστια επιτυχία τους στο εξωτερικό, έφτασαν στη χώρα μας το 2009 και αμέσως, κατέκτησαν τις καρδιές μικρών και μεγάλων αναγνωστών της φανταστικής λογοτεχνίας, εισάγωγοντάς τους ουσιαστικά στην φιλοσοφία αυτού που λέμε, δυστοπικό μυθιστόρημα. Ω, ναι... λατρέψαμε τους "Αγώνες Πείνας", τόσο εξαιτίας των χαρακτήρων του, όσο και της θλίψης που μας προκάλεσε στο σύνολό του, ακόμα και όταν τα πράγματα διαπερνούσε μια ακτίδα αισιοδοξίας.

This book is amazing.

I didn't buy The Hunger Games companion because I know that it would focus on the cinematography and behind-the-scenes of the movie. But I decided to buy this book because it is centered on the story of the movie itself, which draws me in like a black hole.

It has some additional knowledge inside, because there are insights from Suzanne Collins, especially about Panem. There are also quotes from the movie. And most of all, it's filled with stills from the movie. It's like a w

Heads up, Hunger Games buffs! Here’s another book worthy of a slot on your special shelf: The World of Hunger Games. The book zeroes in on the actual story instead of behind the scenes; there are a couple of delectable food for thought from Suzanne Collins herself, and the rest were the author’s paraphrased passages and information that most HG aficionados would already know. You could purchase this book just for the photographs alone, I’m telling you. The gorgeous, high quality stills from the ...more

This isn't going to be a long review, since an accurate summation of this book doesn't require too many words. For anyone who has already read the series (the first book, especially), no new ground is explored here. There's no new information; it's really just Egan's rewording of what Collins has already told us.

The pictures, though, is where this book really shines. I purchased this book for the aspect of the photography alone, and I was not at all disappointed. I did, however, buy it at a dis

In case you are one of the four people who haven't heard about "The Hunger Games," it's a dystopian book/movie series set in a future North America.

So I was hoping that "The World of the Hunger Games" would further explain the backstory, creatures and civilization of Suzanne Collins' universe. However, the book is really more of an illustrated storybook -- it has a a LOT of photographs, a nearly-full plot recounting, and a hefty dose of padding (how many full-page quotes are we gonna get?).

Conseguí este libro por 4 y creía que era un libro de la película, con fotos y nada más. Pero también explica cosas. No solo de la película, sino que también hay algunos pequeños detalles del libro. No dice nada nuevo y la mayoría de páginas son fotos, pero me fue ben para refrescar la memoria sobre Los Juegos Del Hambre.
Muy buenas fotos y bastante bien explicado todo. Se lee en un rato. No deja de ser un pequeño libro complementario.

An excellent accompaniment to the Hunger Games movie. Nicely illustrated & chock full of movie stills, quotes from the book & factoids from the movie. It will be very popular in both libraries.

I actually got this book along with the tribute guide at the Dollar Tree for a dollar each just a bit before Catching Fire came out. It was good to get caught back up. Though I will say this book was 75% pictures and barely any writing. I guess the Avox were in the first movie? There's a picture of one in here. I'm going to have to re-watch the movie now, because I did not see them in there. Though, a quick background of the Avox would have been great to show why people are afraid of just runnin ...more

Not much to this book. The big draw is the collection of beautiful stills from the movie. The text was a sparse summary of places, people, and background from the book.

I was debating whether to give this a 3.5 or a 4 star rating, and I clearly decided to give it a 4 star rating.
I was on the fence with this rating due to the fact that the information provided in this book was basic stuff I already knew all about. But even so, it is a helpful refresher of the world of Panem if you don't feel like reading the books all over again. I also have it a 4 star rating due to how useful and helpful this book would be for someone who has only seen the movie, it provides

Recommends it for: pre-teen
"The World of..." is an excellently written volume, and the pictures extracted from the movie "The Hunger Games" are bright, shiny, and voluminous. Unfortunately, tragity is not limited to within the boundaries of Panem; the HG trilogy is written to the Young Adults (YA) audience, where here (my opinion only) the audience is pre-teen--an audience that will most likely not understand the complexities and politics of the Capital or its' games, but only a girl with a bow. But alas, choose the right ...more

Grabbed this off the shelves during my Hunger Games fan-girl period and kept it for way too long. I enjoyed the book, but it was mostly just a teaser for the movie. I really like some of the input from Suzanne Collins. Some of the tidbits she gave helped frame the larger story and brought out imagery and themes I didn't see in the beginning. I liked the mix of explaining the world the story takes place in, but also the meaning behind it. I think they did a nice job to combine a narrative of the ...more

Dit boek is het illustratie- en informatieboek over The Hunger Games. Dit boek bevat vele foto’s van de film, beschrijvingen van locaties en personages en Suzanne Collins heeft ook veel toegevoegd aan het boek. Het boek geeft een illustratie over het eerste deel. Het begint met een introductie op Panem, District 12, Katniss en haar familie en daarna volgt het de verhaallijn van het boek/film.

Het boek heeft een mooie verdeling in foto’s en tekst. De foto’s zien er erg mooi uit, ik had ook het ide

The World of the Hunger Games AKA The Hunger Games for Dummies. I wouldn't describe it as definitive...

When The World of the Hunger Games was first announced, I remember there were descriptions saying that new facts and details (about Panem) that would be revealed in this book. And I recall it was speculated that Suzanne Collins herself would be writing it. So it's a double disappointment for me when (1) the only new thing I got from this book was that Suzanne Collins considered the "psychologic
