The Hunger Games trilogy and Ender’s Game. Each individual books written by two different authors, yet there are still similarities buried within the theme of both books, as well as their differences. In both novels, sacrifice is a prominent theme, which plays an important role in becoming a leader. Collins and Card both craft their individual story in a way in which the characters from each book, Katniss Everdeen and Ender Wiggin, took risks for their family, and lost someone close to them.
In this book Katniss was fighting against the capitol alongside the rebels who wanted to see the capitol fall. In this book and previous ones, katniss has shown various rebellious acts, one of them being is when katniss and peeta threatened to eat poisonous berries if they were both unable to win. This challenging act was the starting point of the conflict between katniss and the capitol. “You’re in trouble. word is the capitol’s furious about you showing them up.
Both books show, sometimes life is not fair so you learn to not give up and fight back. They show this differently because one book shows Katniss just goes into the Hunger games and doesn’t fight back. The other other book shows Katniss fights back and tries to not go in the Hunger games. The Hunger games is about this girl named Katniss and the boy who gave her bread get picked to go into the Hunger games. The Hunger games is where 2 kids from every district get picked to go and fight for their lives.
Both Fahrenheit 451 and Hunger Games show characteristics of Dystopian in their stories. Dystopian is a futuristic, imagined universe where societal control and the illusion of a perfect society have disrupted. It basically shows how the society went from being perfect to completely changing into something different. Fahrenheit 451 and Hunger Games show that; information, independent thought, & freedom are restricted; a figurehead or concept is worshipped by the citizens of the society; and citizens are perceived under constant surveillance. Information, independent thought and freedom are restricted is a major characteristic in both works.
Fahrenheit 451 and The Hunger Games are both literary examples of a dystopian setting. A dystopian setting is an imagined place or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad, typically a totalitarian or environmentally degraded one. These literary works are dystopian because the government has full control over them. Some characteristics are information, independent thought, freedom is restricted. Also, the natural world is banished and distrusted.
The dominant theme in the novel is the control the Panem government has over their society. Early in the story, Katniss is being blackmailed by President Snow. Snow wants Katniss to demonstrate to the entire nation that a reckless act she committed was out of love and not out of rebellion. In order for Snow to force he says “[Gale] I can easily kill off if we don’t come to a happy resolution” (Collins, 23). Later on in the novel, Snow believes that Katniss has failed to convince the nation that she had no rebellious intentions, he alters the Hunger Games process to force Katniss to participate once again.
Through the Hunger Games it becomes clear of the impact Katniss Everdeen has towards the Capitol and the world she lives in through mass media. She is unaware of her actions in the beginning, but her motivations and care for other members during the Hunger Games entices feelings from viewers in all districts and not just hers. The candidate from district 12 Katniss is the Catalyst for what is to come and for the fate of all the districts. By breaking the rules and forcing her own way it makes the Capitol seem weak making her words powerful and her actions meaningful.

You have lost all hope. You feel like there is no way you are getting back up, and you wish you didn’t have to suffer anymore. Would you get up and try again or accept your fate? For Katniss in the dystopian novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, she had lost everything, but got back up every time to keep her family safe. For Tris in the dystopian novel Insurgent by Veronica Roth, she gave up entirely and wished she was dead, but in both of these stories, the authors used the mood of the reader and the protagonists’ actions to show that you shouldn’t let negative emotions control you.

A utopia is a place, state, or condition that is ideally perfect in respect of politics, laws, customs, and conditions. Whereas a dystopia a futuristic, imagined universe in which oppressive societal control and the illusion of a perfect society are maintained through corporate, bureaucratic, technological, moral, or totalitarian control. Literature that is considered to have a dystopian world explains a current trend, societal norm, or political system through an exaggerated worst-case scenario. The examples of dystopias that are going to be explained throughout this essay is Fahrenheit 451 and The Hunger Games.
Introduction I will be examining the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, through a sociocultural lens seeing that the social relationships among the characters can connect to particular concepts discussed this term. Throughout my analysis I will discuss social relations, social inequality, privilege/oppression, and social structures in relation to the film. Considering this perspective enables me to question the idea of ‘universal’ or ‘natural’ childhood and instead explore how young people exist within social hierarchies, and how adults within the film view young people inadequately. Rather than assume the powerlessness of youth, I will explore how young people resist social perceptions and expectations through resilience and resistance.
There are two verses of The Hunger Games. Showing argumentative and similarities of the book and movie. One similarity of the book and movie is that part when The Hunger Games had started. The Career group found Katniss in a tree, and Rue showed Katniss the Tracker Jackers.
In “ The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins, the main character’s qualities contribute to the theme of the novel because Katniss is very brave,determined, and self reliant, and the theme of this novel is never let anyone silence you. The text states “ Over the period of several weeks, the competitors must fight to the death. ”(Collins 18) The text also states, “...forcing them to kill one another while we watch --this is the Capital way of reminding us how totally we are at their mercy.” (Collins 18)
