THE HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY
SURVIVING THE END OF THE WORLD
In dystopian post-apocalyptic novels, a remnant of humanity survives against odds ranging from nuclear wars to environmental meltdowns; invasions by aliens, zombies, and other monsters; plagues; chemicals; genetics gone wild; supermassive black holes that devour us; earthquakes; volcanoes; and even human-eating plants. Many of these scenarios are man-induced horrors: the nukes, biological and chemical wars, genetic engineering, global warming, pollution, corporate and government greed. In the real world, if a few people survive such as apocalypse, then there’s only one way to completely obliterate the human race: The survivors must kill each other off.
Enter author Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games and its two sequels, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. While the first two books in the series focus on annual gladiatorial Hunger Games and then the Quarter Quell, the third book is essentially about war. Originally aimed at teens aged twelve and up, the series quickly grabbed hold of everyone: twelve, thirteen, fourteen, twenty-five, thirty-five, fifty. It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, the messages are the same. If humans aren’t careful, we may blow ourselves into oblivion by wars, cruelty, the lust for power, and greed. Children are the future of the human race. If we kill our children, who will be left?
