The Hunger Games

Comparing to Greek Mythology

About The Hunger Games:

The Hunger Games is about the United States, now called Panem, since this book takes place in the future. There is one capital, which is surrounded by 12 "Districts." The capital is a very harsh place to be at. They make one boy, and one girl from each district to participate in the Hunger Games once a year, to fight to the death. A 16-year-old girl, Katniss Everdeen (main character), she is in District 12, and she stepped in front of her sister, Primrose to be in the Hunger Games, because Primrose was picked. She promises she would win for her. Then the boy that was picked for District 12 was Peeta Mellark. Did she win? Did she lose? Or did they both win?

Featuring Katniss Everdeen as the Protagonist:

Katniss Everdeen is the Protagonist. Originally, it was supposed to be Primrose, but since she loves her sister so much, she went for her as a volunteer. The Antagonist is President Snow. He is in charge of the capital. Snow decides that he wants one boy and one girl from each district, to entertain himself. The main characters in this book are Katniss, Primrose (Prim), (sister), Katniss' mom, Gale (best friend of Katniss), Peeta (picked with Katniss, they knew each other because they lived near each other, and he gave her bread, since his father owns a bakery, and he has a crush on her). Haymich, (a mentor, gives them tips on surviving) President Snow (Antagonist, in charge of capital)

Comparing Hunger Games To Greek Mythology


I would rate this book 5/5 stars because I thought it was very interesting, and it had lots of plot events, like Katniss and Peeta going to the Capital, and it looking all future like. I also really like the part where Katniss is all suited up for sponsors to see her, and she is going to the Hunger Games. And I also like it when she is in the Hunger Games, fighting. I would recommend this book to a friend, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes major plot events, and likes violence.
