In the Novel “The Hunger Games Catching Fire” Many New things have occurred but some parts of the book really surprised me.

Their mother was living through depression after her husband died in a mine explosion, giving responsibility up to Katniss. The sixteen year old would often find herself hunting (for food) with her close friend, Gale, although it was not allowed to the people of Panem. A major practice that Katniss inherits, and is known for, is the ability to hunt and her skills with the bow and arrow.

In the book, “The Hunger Games,” the main protagonist, Katniss Everdeen, lives with her mother and sister Prim in District 12 of the country of Panem. Katniss volunteers to participate in the Hunger Games after her sister is chosen. Peeta Mellark is chosen as well.

They are brought to an arena created by the Capital to fight to the death until only one comes out victorious.
In literature class, we read the short story “The Most Dangerous Game”, by Richard Connell. The theme of the story, life or death, could be compared to the famous movie, The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a futuristic movie, where one boy and one girl from every district is taken to an arena to fight for the chance to be the last standing and to live. It is very similar to the fact that “The Most Dangerous Game” is about survival and fighting to live. One could say the movie and short story do not compare because The Hunger Games is also considered a romance, while “The Most Dangerous Games” is strictly about life and death.
INTRODUCTION Literary Darwinism in the last couple of decades attracted a diversity of credible thinkers and lead to integration of literary concepts with a modern evolutionary understanding of the evolved and adapted characteristics of human nature. New age authors seem to be mixing this theory with their contemporary, speculative fiction. The Divergent series by Veronica Roth, The Maze Runner by James Dashner, The American TV series, LOST were all highly successful and set records with their readers and the box officer.

Suzanne Collins’ novel The Hunger Games is about stereotyping and dehumanization as ways government uses to control ordinary citizens of Panem. The main character, Katniss Everdeen, is forced to take part in the Hunger Games, which is one of the main approaches to dominate over the country. Even though Katniss is pressed to face various difficulties, the novel focuses on political and social problems that are faced in modern society. The definition of the word dehumanization by Merriam-Webster is to ‘depriving human qualities, personality, or split’.
This novel is place in the future Americas in an area called Panem. Panem is split up into twelve sections, called districts, and a sparkling capitol. Each district provides different supplies for Panem and the capitol. They also re required to provide one boy and one girl for the Hunger Games yearly.
One of the characteristics of the dystopian society is that; the people have horrible fear of the outside world and that is exactly what happens with the people in Panem as Katniss says “[f]ear shoots through me, but I have enough sense to keep still” (Collins 185) expresses her fear in that new world, using stream of consciousness. Obviously, Katniss and Peeta face a lot of difficulties and Tests in the games. Katniss describes her state “I’m wounded and trapped. Darkness has given me a brief reprieve” (Collins 186). They are really in hell facing their Enemy, the Gamekeepers, as they are constantly trying to throw the tributes off during the games.
