Suzanne Collins Quotes

  • Director Gary Ross has created an adaptation that is faithful in both narrative and theme, but he’s also brought a rich and powerful vision of Panem, its brutality and excesses, to the film as well. His world building’s fantastic, whether it be the Seam or the Capitol.
  • It’s amazing to see things that are suggested in the book fully developed and so brilliantly realized through the artistry of the designers.
  • I’m not a very fancy person. I’ve been a writer for a long time, and right now ‘The Hunger Games’ is getting a lot of focus. It’ll pass. The focus will be on something else. It’ll shift. It always does. And that seems just fine.
  • The cast, led by the extraordinary Jennifer Lawrence, is absolutely wonderful across the board. It’s such a pleasure to see how they’ve embodied the characters and brought them to life.
  • The film opens up the world beyond Katniss’ point of view, allowing the audience access to the happenings of places like the Hunger Games control room and President Snow’s rose garden, thereby adding a new dimension to the story.
  • I don’t write about adolescence. I write about the war. For adolescents.
    If your parent is deployed and you are that young, you spend the whole time wondering where they are and waiting for them to come home. As time passes and the absence is
  • longer and longer, you become more and more concerned – but you don’t really have the words to express your concern. There’s only this continued absence.
  • Telling a story in a futuristic world gives you this freedom to explore things that bother you in contemporary times.
  • I think people respond to dystopian stories because they’re ways of acting out anxieties that we have and fears that we have about the future. So much media’s coming at you over the Internet, your brain gets overloaded. You don’t know what to do with it. And one thing you can do with it is read a story.
