This "unauthorized guide" presents glosses on the names used in the Hunger Games series. There are etymologies of the nature names from the districts and histories of the Romans whose names characters from the Capitol held. The connections between the word histories and the stories are sometimes eye-opening even if sometimes a bit of a stretch. A quick but enjoyable read!
