How did you become a fan of The Hunger Games series?
I was on holidays and I was really bored so I asked my dad to go get a few books in a book store. I bought Diary of The Wimpy Kids and Eragon etc. Just as I was walking to the counter,
I saw ‘The Hunger Games’ placed 4th on the best sellers list displayed on the shelves. I thought..this seemed familiar, I think I’ve heard of it before, so I decided to buy it.
I read it in a record time of 8 hours, the fastest I’ve ever read a book. (Second to GONE series which took 2 days) After that, I went to the same book store and bought the two other books immediately. I fell in love and now I’m awaiting the movie!
If you were born in that dystopian era, what do you think would your life be? Would you be living in one of the districts or would you be enjoying a fabulous life in the Capitol?
If I was in a district, I’d probably be in the fishing one. Life for me would be okay, I think I’m emotionally, mentally and physically strong to be able to withstand the harsh conditions of the hard lifestyle. But, the Capitol sounds nice to be honest and I would like to live there if I had a chance.
If your name was called in the reaping and you’d be participating in the Games, which of the tributes from the 74th and 75th Hunger Games will you choose as allies?
I’d choose Finnick & Katniss. Two very resourceful and powerful people who I could depend on.
As a Hunger Games tribute, what would be your skill and strategy to survive?
My skills are agility, stealth and being a quick-thinker. I’d hide until the end just like Fox-Face and try to kill the last remaining tribute.
If you were transported in Katniss’ world for a day and you can choose to be inside the body of one of the characters, who would it be?
President Snow. I’d like to know and feel what it would be like to control the whole of North America. It would be really… really awesome!
There’s so much buzz about the Hunger Games movie, what are your expectations from the movie?
I try not too have much expectations for books into movies. I had a huge let down from Percy Jackson! But I have high hopes for this one! Jennifer Lawrence, Josh & Liam are amazing actors and I’m sure they will succeed in being the characters that we all love & cherish!
Anything else you’d like to say?
May the odds be ever in my favor!
