31 Differences Between The Hunger Games Book and Movie - MTVBehold, the major differences we noticed on The Hunger Games movie versus the book. Massive spoilers throughout! Book version: Katniss is given the pin by the Mayor's daughter, Madge. This comes as a surprise as she thought Madge didn't like her. The pin is explained to be a subtle dig at the The Capitol, as Mockingjays were the comical result of a bio-genetic spying program that the general public gradually became aware of and used against the government. Movie version: Katniss finds the Mockingjay pin at a rummage sale, but there's no explanation of why the pin would be considered inflammatory towards President Snow and the ruling class. Level of Change: Rather large as it doesn't set up District 12's Mayor as being somewhat human, and doesn't show why the Mockingjay symbol matters.

Good or Bad Change: Understandable, as the film needed to show the difference between Katniss and the government. I like quiet, but doesn't give any grand speeches. Book version: Cato remains psychotic to until the end, but not silence. Just the idea that the Capitol removes the tongues of rebels and turns them into slaves is pretty scary, but seeing that very girl again is one of many things that finally spurs Katniss into rebellion.
