A philosophical exploration of Suzanne Collinss New York Times bestselling series, just in time for the release of The Hunger Games movie Katniss Everdeen is the girl who was on fire, but she is also the girl who made us think, dream, question authority, and rebel. The post-apocalyptic world of Panems twelve districts is a divided society on the brink of war and struggling to survive, while the Capitol lives in the lap of luxury and pure contentment. At every turn in the Hunger Games trilogy, Katniss, Peeta, Gale, and their many allies wrestle with harrowing choices and ethical dilemmas that push them to the brink. Is it okay for Katniss to break the law to ensure her familys survival? Do ordinary moral rules apply in the Arena? Can the world of The Hunger Games shine a light into the dark corners of our world? Why do we often enjoy watching others suffer? How can we distinguish between whats Real and Not Real? This book draws on some of historys most engaging philosophical thinkers to take you deeper into the story and its themes, such as sacrifice, altruism, moral choice, and gender.
