In the book the “Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins which had been made into a great movie in Hollywood. The plot of the hunger games can be describes as an event that every year the Capitol of Panem hosts an event called the Hunger Games where two "tributes" (a boy and a girl) are drafted from each of the twelve districts to be brought to an arena and fight to the death. Only one person can win. This is to remind the country not to rebel and also this is for entertainment too. This year, unfortunately, Katniss's little sister is selected for the Hunger Games, so Katniss volunteers to take her place. While the Hunger Games movie broke records at the box office, but saying that the movie is better than the book is very wrong because the book describes more content that the movie did not include. While reading the book we inhabit Katniss’s mind, through first person narrative. While following her inner dialogue we know her fears, desires, and needs, in a much more intimate way then the film can deliver. However, on screen we are given some hints and clues into the complex feelings of Katniss given by the actor Jennifer Lawrence’s incredible acting and because the camera was allowed to linger long enough for her nonverbal expressions to come through. A lesser actor wouldn’t have been able to pull this off. Another reason why the book the book is better is because the book is more violent. The violent in the book is not depicted in the movie. This probably is because the movie e is rated PG13. Another reason why the movie is worse than the book is because the movie describes the resident in the capitol to be disturbing with weird dye hair and just look odd. In conclusion the “hunger games” book is better than the movie because of Katniss’s in depth narration that the movie could not deliver. Moreover violence in the movie was not the best that could have been showed in the movie due to the parental ratings
