For the past few years, The Hunger Games, and its sequels, have been undoubtedly three of the most talked about books in literary circles. The dystopian thriller offers an intriguing look at a future America, now named Panem, shaped by its post-apocalyptic setting. One defining characteristic of this society is its annual “Hunger Games”, a brutal reality show in which two children from each of Panem’s 12 districts must participate in a battle to the death, until one lone victor remains. Each year, one boy and one girl, both between the ages of 12-18, are sent from every district, and Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games focuses on District 12’s female tribute, Katniss Everdeen, who volunteers herself when her younger sister is initially chosen. Katniss, a skilled hunter and an isolated loner, finds herself dealing with the politics of the “Hunger Games”, deciphering friend from foe, and using every survival instinct and tactic she knows in order to stay alive. Collins’ novel is not only a detailed, well-drawn social commentary, but also a complicated portrait of Katniss, a remarkably strong female character not easily forgotten.
