In Hunger Games Katniss wasn't trying to save people. She was content with her life and happy with the way it was. Dystopian Society was a oppressive society that was trying to control everyones life. The monsters they were fighting against was people that were hunger for power and ambition to keep people in line. they fought back by taking the fight district by district until they got the capital. Yes they were successful by telling the leader and taking control of the capital. On a different note by taking over the capital the ironic part is that Katniss says by destroying the government. she hopes that she didn't create a worse one.
