Hunger Games and SocietySOC/105IntroThe Hunger Games is a book that received relative anonymity before it started to reach critical acclaim for its action packed storyline and compelling characters. The book revolves around the main protagonist Katniss Everdeen and the decision she made to take her sister's place in the world's hunger games. These hunger games force competitors to fight to the death until the last person is standing. The author, Suzanne Collins modeled the story of Katniss Everdeen after characters in Greek mythology. Katniss has to fight people from other districts in order to stay alive using her skills with a bow and arrow. While the story of Katniss and her struggles can be viewed as another book geared for teenage readers, the character development and socioeconomic issues bring out a story that involves so much more. It enables adults to understand and relate to some of the exciting events in the books. The Hunger Games ultimately sheds the shallow children's book and brings about a world that is not to different from our own. It brings to light some of the problems with today's world and exposes it in a way that children can understand it.
