Abstract
The Hunger Games is a novel written by Suzanne Collins and published in 2008. The novel belongs to a trilogy with the same name The Hunger Games and due to its sudden popularity, based on the unusual setting, the names of the characters, the horrific theme and the frightening metaphorical similarity to today’s entertainment, all three novels have been adapted into movies in the past 5 years. This paper will focus on the unusual dystopian world of Panem by exploring some of twelve Districts and their civilians who either live a hard and frightening life or a rich and relatively comforting life. It will also examine the history and the stream of events that have led to the annual Hunger Games where they pick children to fight to death to entertain viewers. This paper will also analyze where the idea for the novel came from and compare the similarities and differences between the novel and Roman mythology.
