Buying The Hunger Games book by fiori-party Buying The Hunger Games book by fiori-party
EN ESPAÑOL AQUI:[link]

I watched the movie, i liked it a lot, i wanted to read the books so i went to the bookstore but they were REALLY expensive :/

Fun fact is that they were more expensive than other books like the ones from Mario Vargas Llosa, who got a Nobel prize 2 years ago making his books unaffordable for most people

I dont know if happens the same on other countries but here in Peru books are expensive and their prices rise when they suddenly become famous >:/

I get too distracted on the PC to read it on-line ;_; i hope to get it on a Secret Santa XD

shitty book for a shitty movie, it is totally pirated from Battle Royale

Well, if you want to go on that route, Battle Royale is much like Lord of the Flies, which came out years before Battle Royale. You can also say that Battle Royale ripped off the Roman Colosseum where they actually sent people in to fight to the death. Just because one person has done a setting like that doesn't mean that other people can. Just look at Star Wars, all those crime shows, and countless of other shows/movies/books. If you read the book and didn't like it, then that's fine; however, you shouldn't bash it just because the genre is the same as another book.

Where I live, the book prices went down when The Hunger Games was made a movie. It was some kind of an advertisement trick I guess.... o.O

in my country, generally, more intellectual or classic books are sold much cheaper than the famous or pops, so that poor people can buy it, but not always the case.

Pasa en todos, de hecho tienen como un contrato con una editorial. Así que en todo el mundo están igual de costosos, aquí por ejemplo cuestan como $23 dólares. Una bonita forma de bajarme las ganas de leerlos.

¿Qué tienen en contra de las versiones de bolsillo que cuestan 7 dólares?

No, I mean, when a successful movie comes out that is based on a film, everyone will watch the movie and THEN go to read the book.

D: That stinks! Has it always been like that with books in your country?
It seems like the opposite here, when books become popular they print a lot of them and they are usually cheaper. Since the Hunger Games movie came out every store seems to have piles upon piles of incredibly cheap but very poor quality paperbacks.

Yeah, in my country they sell fotocopied books on the streets, we call them "pirate books", they are way cheaper, with poor quality paper but overall good after you make sure they are well fotocopied.

The problem is that is illegal to buy them, and stores are not allowed to sell them, there is a whole anti-piracy campaing against pirate books, i agree at some point that people selling these books and not paying taxes is wrong but also is not cool when the bookstores sell the originals at prices so high only the rich can afford, books should not be a luxury :(

I´ll take a look at the stores and see if they sell original books at better prices :)

que buena estrategia, venderlos baratos cuando no hay pelicula y nadie sabe de su existencia, pero poof! sale la pelicula, aumentan el precio y se vende como pan caliente, eso es lo que usualmente pasa con los libros que tienen peliculas (como harry potter o crepusculo) y si a ti te gusto tanto, eso debe significar que es muy buena O.O! ya me dieron ganas de verla XD
