"For all those who adore Katniss and Peeta, and can't get enough, this companion guide to the wildly popular Hunger Games series is a must-read and a terrific gift--especially with the film version hitting theaters in March 2012. Written by the New York Times bestselling author of The Twilight Companion, the book takes fans deeper into the post-apocalyptic world created by Suzanne Collins--an alternative future where boys and girls are chosen from twelve districts to compete in "The Hunger Games," a televised fight-to-the-death. When sixteen-year-old Katniss learns that her little sister has been chosen, Kat steps up to fight in her place--and the games begin. This unathorized guide takes the reader behind the stage. The Hunger Games Companion includes fascinating background facts about the action in all three books, a revealing biography of the author, and amazing insights into the series' major themes and features--from the nature of evil, to weaponry and rebellions, to surviving the end of the world. It's everything fans have been hungering for since the very first book! This book is not authorized by Suzanne Collins, Scholastic Press or anyone involved in the Hunger Games movie"-- Provided by publisher.

More of a catalogue than a guide. Describes diverse aspects of the Hunger Games world, from philosophy to weaponry. Unfortunately the information provided lacks depth, so the guide tends to have all the charisma of a shopping list.

Parts of it are extremely graphic and can be disturbing to some adults. The description of the consequences of chronic hunger almost made me sick. In reality, nobody outside the pampered capital could be strong enought to participate in the games, in my opinion.

I was eagerly anticipating this book, since I quickly devoured the trilogy in a matter of days. But, I feel that this book disappointed. It was rather dull, no discussing The Hunger Games directly, but more making comparisons about The Hunger Games to other things. Not that great, okay for a light read or boredom, nothing spectacular.
