Evan David The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins has shown many deep lessons ,and symbols that can be used in our own live. One of these symbols is the mockingjay pin that Katniss wears everywhere she goes in the country, even in the games. This pin stands for the last bit of hope that everyone in the districts has for survival. It also stands for freedom, and how if we all come together for a cause, we can do so many things to benefit the other people around us. Some of the major characters in book are Katniss and Primrose Everdeen, Peeta Mellarck, Haymitch and Cinna. These characters help the story evolve and give it connection to the lives of many people. in the book, there are 12 districts of the county. Every year, each of the districts gives up two children in the ages of 12-18, boy and girl, to participate in the annual Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a representation of giving back to the Capital for the districts rebellion. During the reaping of the children, Primrose is selected to participate in the 74th Hunger Games, but Katniss will not allow her sister to die. She volunteers as tribute for her sister, and the games begin. She will then have to be able to tell the difference between what is true, and what is a lie. One of the points in the novel that you cannot miss is when Katniss volunteers as tribute. It shows how to truly love someone more than yourself. Another event in the novel that you cannot miss is the end of the games, when there are three tributes left. It is one of the turning points in the book, and it is when Katniss shows her hate for the Capital, and how they treat their citizens. This book is very appealing to teens and young adults, since it is full of action and suspense. It is also appealing to teens because the main characters are teenagers, and teens can connect to some of their everyday struggles. I would give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars because of how well it pulls you in, and how connected you feel with the main characters.
