Maps of Panem - The Hunger Games

Maps of Panem - The Hunger Games | Books | Scoop.it
From The Hunger Games trilogy: different perspectives on the country of Panem.

Via Seth Dixon
Gabbie J's insight:

If you have ever read the Hunger Games series , then you were probably curious on where the districts are located. These are some interpretations that other people have made to try and fulfill the Hunger Games fans needs for a conclusion . You could even see what district you would live in if you lived in Panem.

As I looked at this map, it amazes me at how the post-apocalyptic North America could look like. I read the books and I actually did not think of some of North America being partially submerged.

 

Cam E's curator insight, January 28, 2014 12:50 PM

An interesting imagination of the Districts in the Hunger Games and where they might be in North America (excluding Cental American and the Carribean). All of these seem to come from some sort of common sense perspective based on the actual products from each region. We can see that the region which produces Electronics would be the geographical equivilent to California, which is well known for their technology within the Silicon Valley region. Some of these regions elude my minimal knowledge in Geography, and I can only guess at their purpose. Could the Luxury Item District be a tongue-in cheek joke about Las Vegas? Or even Hollywood? The "Peacekeepers" district being centered somewhat near Texas and the border with Mexico makes me wonder if it's placed there because of our border fence with Mexico.

Alyssa Dorr's curator insight, December 12, 2014 8:32 PM

I have never seen this movie, however my sister is very intelligent with every aspect of it. Panem is the country in which The Hunger Games takes place in both the book and the film. The country is separated into thirteen districts until the rebellion, reducing the number to twelve. Each district has their own job, as shown in this image. For example, one district promotes fishing, another agriculture, and also electricity. As one can see from this map, all the districts are shaped like the United States. According to my sister, Panem is classified as being the future United States. This is an interesting aspect if we think about it. One might think that from looking at this and knowing that it is going to be the "future US", that it appears that everyone will slowly drift apart and do their own thing. Everyone may end up being their own "district" in the future.

6 Things You Should Know About 'The Fault in Our Stars' | Word and Film

6 Things You Should Know About 'The Fault in Our Stars' | Word and Film | Books | Scoop.it
As we near the premiere date of the adaptation of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, we have a few takeaways from a press event.
Gabbie J's insight:

The Fault in Our Stars was such a phenomenal book and movie I can't even criticize them. The book was about a young girl who had thyroid cancer that spread to her lungs and met this boy at a support group. This boy named Augustus waters had a touch of Osteosarcoma and now has a prosthetic leg but that doesn't restrict him from anything. So at this support group when they met there was an instant romantic connection which sparked many adventures to come.

Gabbie J's insight:

I have since moved on from the somewhat cliff hangar ending of Eleanor and Park and began exploring the words of a book called the Boy in the Striped Pajamas , which has been interesting so far.There has been a movie out for some time now though I have just got to reading the book. I did not watch the trailer to this movie in fear of spoilers so I am hoping it is a creditable source.

The Book Thief - Official Trailer (2013) [HD] Geoffrey Rush, Emily Watson

The Book Thief written by Markus Zusak


Via Beth Walker Mustar
Gabbie J's insight:

The Book Thief is one of the best written books ever in my opinion and here is the trailer for the motion picture. It has been out for aeon but I have yet to see it because of my packed schedule. If the movie is as satisfactory as the book then I will no doubt go and purchase the movie. Hopefully it is as exceptional as the book.

If you took the chance of reading the Divergent series you most likely got very attached to the adventures of Tris and her fellow faction living natives , but whats with the ending? You can't just do that it , is just so mean! Anyway this series is one of the best in my library  and if you want to see how people react to it ,  you should check this page out.

Gabbie J's insight:

This website is a brief overview about the current book that I am reading. So ,  far it is a wonderful  book  although one negative feature is that it is not accelerated reader.  Eleanor and Park is one of my favorite books that I have read this school year. It is about to misfits in high school that shockingly fall in the trance of first love . Anyway it is a very emotional book that could shock you in ways you can't imagine.

Gabbie J's insight:

The author of the book The Fault in Our Stars (John Green) talks about his most preferred books that are not popular as of right now. You may be asking , why is this author sitting down and making videos? Well ,John Green has many YouTube channels with his brother Hank, which is why I think he is a very awesome person and that he speaks very intelligently .

The Great Gatsby for NES

The Great Gatsby, for the Nintendo Entertainment System

Via Troy Mccomas (troy48)
Gabbie J's insight:

I enjoyed reading the book titled The Great Gatsby and I also appreciate video games , so this website is very  fit for me. It puts you in the shoes of Nick Carraway trying to find Gatsby , at least in the first level that I played. There are butlers and other enemies that you have to face and you deal with them primarily with power-ups that make you throw this hat shaped object farther so you do not have to go near them. I really like this video game based on a book because you always see movies based on books but a video game, nobody really hears that.

What Makes You Keep Reading?

What Makes You Keep Reading? | Books | Scoop.it

After reading a certain blue, white and black book written by John Green in a single day, I started thinking. Truth is, the only thing The Fault in Our Stars has in common with most of the books I read is that it happens to be a YA novel. There aren't any high-action scenes or evil villains to destroy or superpowers or magic or spaceships or horrific dystopian societies that must be overturned.

 

And yet, I whipped through its 318 pages like nobody's business and loved every moment of it. So it got me thinking: what really makes readers keep reading?

This is a very well written and confusing book that is focused on the life of an accepting young man named Nick Carraway and his mysterious wealthy neighbor Jay Gatsby. It is filled with the life of the 1920's otherwise know as  money , deceit and classified relationships.
