Hi Kidz, that’s kids with a z, it’s me Eric! Since Mockingjay part 1 came out, 🙂 I came to talk about the genre, dystopian tales. WARNING : THE FOLLOWING MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS!!
This genre is about a horrible future, the opposite of utopian tales. Dystopian tales has been extremely popular among people these past few years. There’s been many books about dystopian tales. Such as “The Hunger Games” trilogy in 2008, been a long time. Also “The Maze Runner” in 2009 and “Divergent” in 2011 etc. I suggest you guys to read these before watching any of these movies, it’ll spoil the reading experience. For some reason we like stories where our great great great great great great great great great grandchildren go into arenas and kill each other. Or where a horrible disease is upon us. Even where humanity is split into five sections only to struggle for power in the end. But I got to admit, they’re really interesting.
I want talk about one really old but extremely good book, “The Giver”. (There is also three other books in the same series.) The Giver book was published in 1993! It earned the John Newbery award. But when I first looked at it I didn’t read it because of the book cover. And you would think that the author is the guy on the book cover. Now look at it!!
I suggest you guys to read it though. It’s a wonderful and sweet tale that we can actually connect to.
Now back on track to the Mockingjay Part 1. What did you guys think about it? I still didn’t watch it or read it. Just because I didn’t read or watch it doesn’t mean I don’t know about it. The first part of Mockingjay is about going into depth of character for Katniss, joining the rebellion. (Of course she has to, she’s the main character!) Then in the end they save Peeta. That’s technically all I know. Stay tuned to part two. Please comment below if you saw the movie and share your opinion.
