So, what was it like? Was it a quiet breakdown of political borders? A huge meteorite striking the earth? Here you can put down your thoughts on Katniss's "world before"'s demise.

Beth (beth_jones8) i think it would have been a war of some kind. Total destruction like what would happen in a nuclear war.


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

One war, or multiple?


message 4: by Beth (last edited Feb 29, 2012 02:23AM) (new)

Beth (beth_jones8) I think maybe one big continous one and then, like Hiroshima, one power thought they could end it all and did not consider the immense power they had. The result being catastrophic reducing America back to its bare beginnings.

I think its a little like 1984 in that the world is left with a few massive powers each with a government that is obsessed with suppression (though 1984 is really different but thats another story).

I don't know really, i'm just following a train of thought.

I hope there was zombies involved! I want a zombie apocalypse!


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Zombies make everything cooler :)

One big nuclear war, indeed. What do you think sparked it? There are an endless amount of things that could have.

I think Russia started it. Like finally putting some truth behind those Cold War threats.

I think the US started it. :p
We prob got in a conflict with the middle east

Well well well, we have two different sides. Let's make a poll. Let's see whose side wins.

Good idea!


message 13: by Beth (new)

Beth (beth_jones8) i think its very possible that something like the economic crisis in Europe could have started it. Something like that kicking off a world war that of course America would have somehow gotten itself into, eventuating to a nuclear war when one power tried to end it. Maybe Japan nuced the US.

Lauren (laurengibson) | 3009 comments Mod
Maybe. I made the poll.


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

Starting this up again.

Maybe it was just...I don't know. I was watching this ah-mazing History Channel Show *pause for groan at my dorkiness* called Life After People. It doesn't consider what actually made people disappear, but what would happen to all our infrastructure, our pets, everything, if every human being just disappeared.

I don't groan at your dorkiness! I saw that show too! It was cool

Letizia (camilaletizia) | 5 comments I guess the apocalipse have been happening since forever (i do not want to be all dark) basically it is a dramatic change in the world (whether politics, nature, diseases, philosophical thinking, etc...)
The origin of Panem might have been that change of political and ideology change in its citizens.
What it is interesting is the specialty in which the disctricts are focused (for instance Katniss district is the coal mines- where on america are they?) It states something characteristic of each state (or even possible, from each country).
Another intersting issue is the capital, the way they dress, eat, speak, think...; the way each district is govern.

The book covers so many issues!

Do you think it's about time we close down this topic?


message 19: by [deleted user] (new)

Possibly.


Lucy ~Graphite Wizard~ I think a flower is in the middle of the earth, and every time some one says the words "I love Gale" It gets bigger, and when it gets to big it will explode, then explodeing the world, so we should all say we are team peeta.


message 21: by [deleted user] (new)

...


Lucy ~Graphite Wizard~ Was that off topic?


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Not really. But it was just a little strange. I didn't know exactly how to respond.


Lucy ~Graphite Wizard~ Well I have a book on hunger games and it said how everything happened.

Everybody shut up, I have a friend named Petta and she's a girl.


An Extremely Avid Reader's Reviews (literarymary) Oh, sorry to offend you. I didn't think it was a real name


message 45: by Lauren, Head Gamemaker (new)

Lauren (laurengibson) | 3009 comments Mod
Sorry Snickerdoodle. We didn't know.


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

It's fine. I just get this really weird visual every time you say that Rue-Lu's true love is Petta.


message 47: by Lydia, I love PSYCH (last edited Jun 02, 2012 06:18PM) (new)

Lydia (lydiapatch) | 1015 comments Mod
Haha were not making fun of the name, just the spelling mistake... and see now it is a bit funnier cause one of us knows someone named petta... i think it would be a cool name, how is it pronounced?


ℂᖺαᖇᒪἷ℮ ⊰1017 &Tardis⊱ (charlie_awesome) | 2311 comments Mod
Sorry Snickerdoodle. We never thought someone would be named Petta!
