The Hunger Games is a book that portrays a tyrannical government that has twelve districts participating an event known as the hunger games where all the kids from 12 to 18 are in the odds of being chosen. This book shows the theme of survival where the main characters are evolving to the environment to help increase their ability to survive.

In The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins analyzes the theme that when pitted against a tyrannical government, one must survive by acclimating to the environment, yet often breaking the rules in spite of the consequences one might face.
Katniss’ struggle to maintain her authentic self represents a strategy to navigate the problems of the world as she tries to feed her family, fight against her competitors to survive the Games as well as fighting against oppression in society. She assumes a public persona amidst maintaining an identity to win the audience’s favor to get help at key points. However, she is not charismatic and thus struggles with knowing the right things to do and say in addition to making decisions on how to go about such issues. Collins seems to assert that crafting a public persona is not dangerous as long as it plays out well as it happened to Katniss by, for instance, getting more sponsors (Collins, 10.24). However, the person assuming a public persona should learn the distinctions between what is real and is fiction.
