The books most highlighted are often the most read – Suzanne Collins's Hunger Games trilogy dominates the site ranking of highlights.
The two "began to blur in this very unsettling way" and the idea for the book was formed. The sense of loss that Collins developed through her father's service in the Vietnam War was also an influence on the story, with Katniss having lost her father at age 11, five years before the story begins.
The story is narrated by year-old Katniss Everdeen from District 12, who volunteers for the 74th Hunger Games in place of her year-old sister, Primrose.
The male tribute is Peeta Mellark , a former schoolmate of Katniss who once gave her bread from his family's bakery when her family was starving. In the days leading up to the Games in the Capitol, they are given advice by their drunken mentor, Haymitch Abernathy , the sole living District 12 victor of the Hunger Games; chaperone Effie Trinket ; and various stylists to enhance their public perception to get potential sponsors, who will send potentially life-saving gifts during the Games.
Katniss's stylist, Cinna , designed special costumes for Katniss and Peeta that set them apart from the tributes when introduced to the public. During their evaluation by the Gamemakers, Katniss unexpectedly gets the highest score among the others. Meanwhile, Rue, the petite year-old girl tribute from District 11, follows Katniss and Peeta around during the training sessions. On the day before the games, in the televised interview with Caesar Flickerman , Peeta reveals his long-unrequited love for Katniss; she is initially shocked by this and believes this is a ploy to gain sponsors, but later accepts this as sincere.
Haymitch then promotes their image as " star-crossed lovers ". The Games begin, and nearly half the tributes are killed in the bloodbath at the start, fighting over the weapons and supplies throughout the arena. Katniss disregards Haymitch's earlier advice to flee immediately and nearly dies, but uses her well-practiced hunting and survival skills to hide in the woods. After a few days, an artificial fire drives Katniss toward the others.
She is spotted and treed by the "Careers" tributes and Peeta, who seems to have allied with them. Their venom kills one of the careers and drives the others away, but Katniss is stung and begins hallucinating.
Peeta returns, but instead of killing her, tells her to run away. Katniss later forms an alliance with Rue, but Rue is fatally wounded by another tribute while Katniss destroys the careers' supplies.
Katniss kills Rue's killer with an arrow, and accompanies Rue as she dies and spreads flowers over the body to show her defiance against the Capitol. In gratitude, Rue's district sends Katniss a loaf of bread. A rule change is announced, allowing the tributes from the same district to win as a pair.
Katniss finds and nurses a wounded Peeta who later revealed that he formed an alliance with the careers to protect Katniss , acting the part of a girl in love to gain gifts. When the Gamemakers send a delivery of what each contestant needs most, Katniss risks her life to obtain medicine for Peeta.
She is intercepted by a career tribute Clove, who gloats over Rue's death and tries to kill Katniss, but is killed by Thresh, the male District 11 tribute, who spares Katniss for Rue's sake. The medicine saves Peeta's life, and they both spend time hunting and collecting food. Katniss and Peeta become the last two survivors, but the Gamemakers revoke the rule change to force one to kill the other for a dramatic finale.
But it turns out site was not only comparing archers and wizards, but apples and oranges. The comparison is limited to sales on site. No figures are available for what percentage of each author's total sales have been through site, but Rowling's print sales of more than million copies worldwide dwarf Collins' print sales of more than 23 million.
The women share the same American publisher, Scholastic. The key to site's comparison may be ebook sales.
The Hunger Games trilogy has sold extremely well in ebook format: Collins was the sixth author and first YA author to be named to site's Kindle Million club, which means a million copies of her books had been sold to Kindle users.
And in March, it was announced that she is the bestselling Kindle ebook author ever. How many of Rowling's Harry Potter books have been sold as Kindle ebooks? Until March of this year, there was no such thing as a Harry Potter ebook. Rowling was slow to jump on the digital bandwagon, reportedly out of piracy fears.
