Why The Hunger Games is not Harry Potter, & Why We Should Care. The Moral Core of Children’s Literature
A 2012 post – still relevant:
Warning: Spoilers – lots & lots of Spoilers from the Trilogy. Don’t read if you don’t want to know Have you read The Hunger Games? the full series? been on the Facebook Capitol PN or District
pages lately? Dipped into the Twitter feed #LookYourBest?
If you have, you may have noticed something really odd. If you’ve read the first book (now in theaters near you & soon to be released in IMAX!), then you know that Katniss Everdeen volunteers to be a tribute to save her sister, Prim, from certain death.
In the first novel, we see the poverty of District 12, learn about the uprising of the 12 Districts against the Capitol, the ensuing annihilation of District 13, the brutal subjugation of the remaining 12 Districts and the founding of the Hunger Games as a reminder of the destruction that rebellion & civil war lead to.
