I've Finally Seen The Hunger Games . . .

. . . And I am hooked! I've never read the books, but now I will. I think Katniss Everdeen is one cool chick, and just about as tough as Pippa Reyes and Abby Hunter from my Werecat Saga. After watching Jennifer Lawrence in the movie, I'd LOVE for her to play Pippa if Feral ever becomes a move [ehem. Get crackin' with those movies deals publishers]. I just hope that one day my stories will reach a fever pitch and engage the minds of YA fans like Suzanne Collins has with her series. If you haven't seen The Hunger Games yet, don't miss out. I enjoyed it more than the Twilight movies, and that's saying a LOT, because I'm not ashamed to admit that I gushed over those pretty hard.

Let the Hunger Games Begin

As huge supporters of movies and television, especially great fiction books that have been converted for the small and large screen, 711 Press would like to show our support for the official release of the movie The Hunger Games, which is based on the book by Suzanne Collins. For those of you who are new to The Hunger Games, here is a synopsis of Book I of the trilogy:

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed, weakened by drought, fire, famine, and war, to be replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 12 districts. Each year, two young representatives from each district are selected by lottery to participate in The Hunger Games. Part entertainment, part brutal intimidation of the subjugated districts, the televised games are broadcasted throughout Panem as the 24 participants are forced to eliminate their competitors, literally, with all citizens required to watch. When 16-year-old Katniss's young sister, Prim, is selected as the mining district's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart, Peeta, the son of the town baker who seems to have all the fighting skills of a lump of bread dough, will be pitted against bigger, stronger representatives who have trained for this their whole lives. Collins's characters are completely realistic and sympathetic as they form alliances and friendships in the face of overwhelming odds; the plot is tense, dramatic, and engrossing. This book will definitely resonate with the generation raised on reality shows like 'Survivor' and 'American Gladiator.' Book one of a planned trilogy.

We'll go on record as saying we love post-apocalyptic, YA adventures, which is why we released the Werecat Saga by Jami Lynn Saunders. That said, The Hunger Games will whet your fiction appetite both onscreen and in print. If you haven't read Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games trilogy yet, (The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay) check out Suzzanne's books on Amazon.
