Most of you already know the plot: post-apocalyptic America now called Panem-tries to stand on its feet by creating a new system of government where 12 districts are ruled almost dictatorially by a central Capitol. Following an uprising against the Capitol some 74 years ago, they enforced a tradition of sacrificing two tributes per district to fight to the death until one victor remained. Collins trilogy is the story of Panem, its tributes, its victors and the evil Capitol overlord President Snow. But it’s mostly about Katniss Everdeen, her hopeless love life and trying to choose between Peeta Mellark and Hawthorne and her unwitting role in a rebel uprising that threatens to tear apart all that President Snow and the Capitol stands for.
I will not do a post on this book because I figured everyone has already seen the movie and it did stay true to the book in most regards. If you feel differently let me know.
