In The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins the overarching theme is being responsible is vital to survive in daily life, Katniss demonstrates this by caring for her family, being responsible for Peeta and his actions and being responsible for herself and her own actions. The theme is first represented by Katniss when she has to take responsibility for her mother and her sister Prim by feeding them and taking as much care as she can of them.

In the film: The Hunger Games, teenagers are picked into a killing games that consists of 24 tributes, two from the 12 districts, one male and one female, to kill each other until one person remains.

“And may the odds be ever in your favor”. That is a quote from the book “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins. There are many themes in the Hunger Games, but one of the biggest themes is rebellion. This essay is about the many acts of rebellion and standing up to people who “control” you (In this case, the Capital) from the book. Some examples of standing up to the capitol are when Peeta and Katniss both almost ate the berries that would've killed them both, when she gave Rue a burial with flowers, and when district 12 gave a 3 finger salute.
In The Hunger Games Trilogy, Katniss must fight to survive a series of survival games while freeing a whole nation from tyrannical oppression and poverty.

In King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard, the world is divided by blood type. In The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Panem is a destroyed country divided into districts that send a male and female tribute to death every year. Both books present two female outcasts that are fed up with their worlds, and attempt to save themselves and the people they love. Aveyard and Collins both use character archetype and mood to present the theme of that when you are being controlled by someone you want to get out you want to get away. Even though it might be hard, as long as you hold what and who you love most you will always find a way back to them.
