The Hunger Games PDF trilogy has been turned into a series of movies starring Jennifer Lawrence. The two movies have been top earners each year that it was shown, and have also received critical acclaim. But before the movies were made, the Hunger Games trilogy has already piqued the excitement of readers.
The first book starts off with the selection of the tribute for the annual Hunger Games. The Capitol has created an event called the Hunger Games, to serve as punishment for a past rebellion started by the poorer districts. The Hunger Games is an annual battle to the death of children aged 12 to 18 years old. The tributes are chosen through a lottery. Katniss Everdeen, the main character of the entire series, volunteers herself as tribute when she hears the name of her sister Prim called. Katniss, along with Peeta, are the two tributes chosen in District 12.
After being chosen as the two tributes in their district, Peeta and Katniss go on a tour around The Capitol. With the help of Hyamitch (a former tribute from their district) and Effie, the two are prepared for the things they will expect during the games, and the things they have to do in front of live TV. They meet other tributes from other districts and show off what they can do just before the games start. Before the official Hunger Games begin, the tributes are showcased in live TV. During an interview, Peeta declares that he is in love with his fellow tribute, Katniss. Katniss felt that Peeta was only saying it to gain sponsors and the sympathy of the viewers.
Katniss and Peeta must now face Cato, the remaining tribute. Katniss manages to hit Cato with her arrow that sends him to the wild pack of murdering dogs. Katniss and Peeta remain but they could not bear the thought of killing each other. They try to commit double suicide by eating poisonous berries. But before they ate the berries, the announcer stops them and declares them winners.
The Hunger Games has gotten the imagination of readers because of its allegorical content. Critics and readers alike appreciated the allegory found on the pages of The Hunger Games. The themes of the book include poverty, oppression, reality shows, and inequality.
