The Ender’s Game book provided more detail of Ender’s siblings. In the text, we learned more about the attitudes and views of Peter and Valentine before he was sent off to Battle School.

For instance, When the Mayor of district 12 begins to tell the history of Panem at the Reaping, Katniss says, “The rules of the Hunger Games are simple. In punishment for the uprising, each of the twelve districts must provide one girl and one boy, called tributes to participate” (Collins 18). The Hunger Games require tributes from each district as a punishment for the uprising that happened in district 13. This punishment by the Capitol is a way to demonstrate to the people that any efforts of revolt against the system in future would result in severe punishments and deaths.Subsequently in the novel, when Katniss questions about the Avox, Haymitch comments, “Someone who commited a crime. They cut her tongue so she can’t speak” (Collins 77).
Because I had recently viewed the Mockingjay part two of the Hunger Games series, I saw an immediate connection in this chapter. Hunger Games part 1 required two of the participants from each of the 12 districts to be part of the annual Hunger Games. Each participant was given time to practice and prepare for the event; however, only one participant was going to survive in the end. Although not as violent, the preparations in the land of Ghuroub is very comparable to the training in the Hunger Games. The difference is that the people are trained with singing, or by “extracting the powers hidden within themselves” (Mahfouz 56).
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.

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.

“You 've got to go through it to get to the end of it,” said Suzanne Collins about her famous novel The Hunger Games, in which Collins delineates very clear boundaries of right and wrong. For example, readers are aghast at the Capital killing children and growing rich off of the enslavement of people. The protagonist of The Hunger Games, Katniss, does whatever she must to survive. Suzanne Collins’ sense of right and wrong may very well be a product of her childhood in a military family. Collins’ father was a career officer in the air force, requiring frequent moves and constant adjustments.
In Macbeth this happens when Macduff decides to take action and overthrow Macbeth. Gaining support from the English, “Thither Macduff, Is gone to pray the holy king upon his aid, To wake Northumberland and warlike Siward” to “Prepares for some attempt of war.” Reveals that Macduff is plotting a war against Macbeth to remove him from the throne due to his tyrannic rule. In The Hunger Games a similar scenario is seen when Katniss blackmails the capitol by threatening to kill both Peeta and herself, a sign of rebellion which leads to a larger scale rebellion. This rebellion sees the oppressed districts come up against the powerful president snow and his Capitol eventually overthrowing him.
