The idea for The Hunger Games was born during a bout of late-night channel surfing. “If you take the elements of the two types of programs I was watching — reality TV and war coverage — what you come up with is a gladiator game,”

summary
Summary
  • The US government has been dissolved, and in its place is a dystopian society known as Panem. Panem is made up of the Capitol and thirteen surrounding districts that take up the mass of the entire modern US. After district 13 is completely annihilated for revolting against the Capitol, the government implements the Hunger Games, a gladiator-like televised event in which one boy and one girl, aged between 12 and 18, from each district must fight to the death. After her younger sister gets randomly chosen to participate in the Hunger Games, 16 year old Katniss Everdeen volunteers in her place.

dystopian society
Dystopian society
  • Dystopia is a form of literature that explores social and political structures.
  • It is a creation of a nightmare world - unlike its opposite, Utopia, which is an ideal world.
  • Dystopia is often characterized by an authoritarian or totalitarian form of government. It often features different kinds of repressive social control systems, a lack or total absence of individual freedoms and expressions, and a state of constant warfare or violence.
  • Many novels combine both Dystopia and Utopia, often as a metaphor for the different directions humanity can take in its choices, ending up with one of the two possible futures.
examples
Examples
  • Sin City: is one of the few non-futuristic versions of a dystopia. Crime is everywhere, the government and the police are corrupt, and you never know when you might become a snack for a cannibal serial killer, or even worse things.
  • Meet the Robinsons: Parodied in the world as run by bowler hats.
