Transcript of Dystopian Novel: The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games is a dystopian novel aimed for young adults that was written by Suzanne Collins, first published in 2008. The book has sold over 17.5 million hard copies and over 1 million ebook copies worldwide. It is an adventurous, romantic, action and science fiction novel. Characteristics of a dystopian novel include being set in the future, a government worshiped by the citizens, citizens live in a dehumanized world or are afraid of the outside world, citizens are under constant surveillance, freedom is restricted, individuality is bad, and citizens live in an illusion of a perfect utopian world. Dystopian themes within The Hunger Games are being under constant surveillance , lack of freedom and choice, set in the future, cruel government, a strong heroine and a post-apocalypse setting. Twenty-four are forced to enter the Hunger Games. Only the winner survives. In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a rich Capitol surrounded by twelve outer districts.

Every year, each district is forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a vicious and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.

When Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her sister's place in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love. The Hunger Games has a thrilling plot; the whole time I was reading there was always total suspense which for me made the book more intriguing.

While I was reading, I could feel the character's emotions and could easily picture myself in the scenarios that the characters were experiencing.

What made the book more enjoyable to read was that I was able to picture the situation because I had seen the movie beforehand.

I recommend this book to anyone because it's got many genres to fit anyone's interest. The Hunger Games is an excellent example that discusses points about modern day life including governments, personal freedom, war, reality TV, poverty, sacrifice, and what it means to be yourself and not live under society's expectations.
