I loved THE HUNGER GAMES trilogy Those books have stayed with me, and I think about their meaning in my life and in society. I like it when a book not only entertains me but is so well-written that I have to keep looking to find hidden meaning.
When I saw this book with essays written by different YA authors on various aspects of THE HUNGER GAMES, I had to read it.
There are essays on how the fashion influenced the rebellion, the reason why Katniss chose Peeta, and how reality shows affect the society of today and led up to the Hunger Games of Panem. There are funny pieces and serious works that really make you think.
I really enjoyed the essay by Blythe Woolston about the mental health of the tributes and how that explains many of the problems of their society. I also liked the one on the politics of MOCKINGJAY and the revolution.
If you want to take THE HUNGER GAMES to the next level, then you may find these essays enlightening.
