The Hunger Games

The Hunger Games is an enormously popular series for a number of reasons. It has complex characters with a strong focus on family and community and it appeals to both young and adult readers. The Hunger Games is no Twilight, it is much better written and as it is a dystopian text, far bleaker. It tackles themes such as propaganda, power, war and identity and belonging. It is also a coming-of-age story both for Katniss and Panem.

We need to revisit the book and discuss exactly what makes it so popular and relevant to its millions of readers.
