The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games was released in September of 2008, and was followed by Catching Fire in 2009 and Mockingjay in 2010. Set in a futuristic dystopian society which arose after the apocalyptic destruction of North America, the country of Panem is divided into 13 districts, and is controlled by District 1, known as “The Capitol.” District 1 is where the elite members of society live, while the remaining 12 districts are isolated from one another, kept on the edge of starvation and forbidden to communicate. As a means of control, each district is forced to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to the Hunger Games, where they will fight to the death for the “honor” of being the victor.
The trilogy centers around Katniss Everdeen, who lives in District 12 with her mother and younger sister. She is resourceful, and is not afraid to break the Capitol’s rules in order to keep her family fed—even though she knows that it could cost her everything if she is caught. When her sister Prim is chosen as Tribute, Katniss takes her place as a volunteer and enters the Arena determined to fight to the death. Together with her co-tribute Peeta Mellark, they find a way to beat the Capitol at their own game…but is the price of victory too high? And as always, our question is…
“Who wore it better—the book or the movie?”
Warning! Spoilers ahead!
