1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money! February 14, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is supposed to be the "ultimate" tribute guide. I can assure you it's not. The most you really learn about the tributes is a picture, district, their name, gender, height and what weapon they use in the arena (ie Katniss bow and arrow, Marvel Spear). Not much else. (As a matter of fact, most are just "Tribute Girl" because they die so early). The rest is a short recap of the event leading up to the games. There is nothing insightful here. Maybe a few interesting pictures from the movies, but most are already in the trailer or splattered on the web. It is also *very* careful to not give away any secrets (ie how Katniss earns her high score from the judges). It took me about 15 minutes to read the book cover to cover and learned nothing new. If looking for a good recap of all the tributes, check out wikipedia and various other sources on the web.

2.0 out of 5 stars Review from My Overstuffed Bookshelf February 17, 2012
Format:Paperback
If it is a book on the Hunger Games, you can bet I am going to buy it and drool over it. When I received this guide for review, I did not hesitate in jumping right into it. Unfortunately, it was not what I was really expecting.

We get to see wonderful pictures from the upcoming movie, but nothing really new that we haven't seen from released trailers. It is set up in sections from explaining the reason for the Hunger Games all the way to where Katniss enters the arena. It has color photos of each tribute with little facts on each one leaving the reader with no more information than what we started with after reading the series.

While it is great as a refresher book to remind us of the original story we have already read, it wasn't something that really added to the experience. The photos were the only added bonus but not enough to make me really excited. If you are a hardcore fanatic for this series, then add it to your collection. Otherwise, you might want to pass on this one and see if something better comes out.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the greatest, but I still adore it February 28, 2012
Format:Paperback
I agree with most of the other reviewers that this isn't the "ultimate" tribute guide. My own copy hasn't arrived yet (today hopefully) but I've flipped through a copy at the local bookstore. It doesn't provide much information but the tributes, but it is just enough to get one curious. Personally, as an amateur costumer/cosplayer, I find the book interesting as I can see some of the details of each tribute's gear. That's what interest me the most, honestly.

My honest opinion is to borrow a friend's copy before you purchase this book. Some may find it a good investment, but others understandably do not.

I did finally get my copy, and some of the tribute pages are tinged green. I don't know if that's just my copy specifically or if a batch is like that. It's only about 4 of the boy tribute pages so it doesn't bother me much.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good quick reference. April 6, 2012
Format:Paperback
But not as good as it could be. I'd like to know how they died, a little background info if any, and other things could've been better like if they had put individual pictures of their tribute parade costume on their pages. If they were a career or not. Things like that. A good quick reference, but not good if you read the book and saw the movie already and remember like 2/5 of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Defenitly a good book to read before the actual books January 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I would have liked to read this book before i read the hunger games series. Its not what i thought it would be but i got some imformation out of it that i didnt get through the book or movie. It was definatly worth the money. If you do not like very short books than this is NOT the book for you. BUT if you like imformational books this is DEFINITELY for you!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars One for the fans November 11, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My daughter loved it! She had a hunger games themed birthday party (with a water fight instead of weapons). They loved the extra detail about each tribute.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Seller but a Poor Choice for the Reader
The packaging and delivery were exactly as promised. The book was a bit of a disappointment. Bits of the book and pictures from the movie but very little I did not already know.
