Hunger Games

The Hunger Games is a 2008 science fiction novel by the American writer Suzanne Collins. It is written in the voice of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in the dystopian, post-apocalyptic nation of Panem in North America. The Capitol, a highly advanced metropolis, exercises political control over the rest of the nation. The Hunger Games are an annual event in which one boy and one girl aged 12–18 from each of the twelve districts surrounding the Capitol are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle to the death.

The book received mostly positive feedback from major reviewers and authors, including the author Stephenie Meyer. It was praised for its storyline and character development, though some reviewers have noted similarities between Collins' book and Koushun Takami's Battle Royale (1999). In writing The Hunger Games, Collins drew upon Greek mythology, Roman gladiatorial games, and contemporary reality television for thematic content. The novel won many awards, including the California Young Reader Medal, and was named one of Publishers Weekly's "Best Books of the Year" in 2008.

Literature
Peeta Mellark

Peeta Mellark is a fictional character from The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Peeta Mellark is portrayed by actor Josh Hutcherson in The Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and the soon-to-be completed Mockingjay film adaption.

Collins presents Peeta Mellark as the male tribute from District 12, in the 74th Hunger Games, alongside Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Then, in the second book, Catching Fire, Peeta is a volunteer for Haymitch in the 75th Hunger Games. He is a baker’s son and, due to the nature of his work around the bakery, exhibits traits such as extensive strength and cake decorating skills. These skills are significant characteristics that help him in the Games. Collins describes Peeta Mellark in the first book of the trilogy as having "medium height with a stocky build" and “ashy blonde hair that falls in waves over his forehead". In the first novel, The Hunger Games, Peeta shows he has a way with people by engaging with the cheering crowds when he first arrives at the Capitol. Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), Peeta's mentor throughout the Games, reacted to this moment by saying, "He knows what he's doing".


Science fiction

Science fiction is a genre of fiction dealing with imaginative content such as futuristic settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, time travel, parallel universes, and extraterrestrial life. Exploring the consequences of scientific innovations is one purpose of science fiction, making it a "literature of ideas". Science fiction has been used by authors as a device to discuss philosophical ideas such as identity, desire, morality, and social structure.

Science fiction is largely based on writing rationally about alternative possible worlds or futures. It is similar to, but differs from fantasy in that, within the context of the story, its imaginary elements are largely possible within scientifically established or scientifically postulated physical laws (though some elements in a story might still be pure imaginative speculation).

Fiction
Katniss Everdeen

Katniss Everdeen is a fictional character and the protagonist of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games trilogy. Her name comes from an edible plant called katniss. Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence portrayed Katniss in the films The Hunger Games, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. She will reprise her role in the sequels The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2.

Katniss and her family come from District 12, a coal-mining district that is the poorest and least populated district in the dystopian fictional autocratic nation of Panem. In the course of the first book, The Hunger Games, Katniss volunteers to replace her sister, Primrose "Prim" Everdeen, after she is called forth during Reaping Day, a day in which, annually, one male and one female tribute between the ages of 12 to 18 are called forth from each district to fight to the death in an arena and only one person can come out alive from all 24 people in what are known as the Hunger Games. Katniss, after an alliance with Rue from District 11 (who reminded Katniss of her own sister), a 12-year-old who had a very touching death, she joins up with fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark, and the pair compete in the Games together. She uses her knowledge of hunting and archery to survive, and the two become the victors after defying the Capitol's attempt to force one to kill the other. Throughout the next two novels, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, Katniss becomes the symbol of a rebellion for the twelve districts against the Capitol's oppression.
