The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition Now In Stock In Kinokuniya Ngee Ann City Outlet

Lots of “The Hunger Games” trilogy related books have been scheduled to be released lately. This of course includes “The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition” which was released on 1st November 2011. However, it wasn’t spotted in local bookstores, at least not that Hunger Games Singapore is known of.

However, I went to Kinokuniya outlet in Ngee Ann City today, to my delight, around 40 copies or so of “The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition” were displayed on the shelf and it’s priced at S$44.99 each.

Previously, Hunger Games Singapore have also mentioned that bookstores such as Times and Kinokuniya are starting to promote “The Hunger Games” with boards of the teaser poster on display.

I did stay around at Kinokuniya at Ngee Ann City to observe the crowds and it appears that the board can be said to be effective in attracting people to pick up “The Hunger Games” novel to at least read the summary of the story on the back of the book. Quite a couple did put the novel into their cart and I hope they will enjoy the story as much as we did. Most of these people were parents who were shopping for books with their children who are tweens or teens. I had overheard a mother asking his 12 years oldish son if the novel would be too easy for him while flipping through it. In my opinion, I believe the content of the book touches on aspects that even adults will enjoy and perhaps take a little time to reflect on our current society.

Personally speaking, I would like to say that Lionsgate has done well in terms when designing that teaser poster. It didn’t deviate from the original novel cover, is striking and yet it’s able to appeal to unisex. Not to forget the meaning behind the Mockingjay pin and also it being on fire which is a cool and symbolic touch. By the way, I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing for the teaser poster to deviate from the cover of the novel. To me, it would simply be easier for a person to connect it to the books.

Currently, Hunger Games Singapore is not sure if other bookstores have starting selling “The Hunger Games Collector’s Edition” or if other bookstores besides Kinokuniya and Times have started promoting “The Hunger Games” too.
