The hunger games is actually taking place..
This semester in college my class had to choose an American author and present to the class how their ideas were post-modern. There was this kid in my English class that did his presentation on Suzanne Collins author of the Hunger Games. He said he was very intrigued by the idea and that it scared him that maybe one day we could actually be there, or in a very similar situation, and then went on to say how he thought it was post-modern because it was set in a post-apocalyptic world. At the end of the presentation I wanted to ask him, don't you think the scary part of The Hunger Games is that is taking place right now? Because that is the feeling I got as I read.
Maybe some of you will think that I am reading beyond and that I may be taking this too serious. Maybe I am, but, maybe if you allow me to explain a little bit I can share with you a bit more beyond the world of the Hunger Games and into our reality.
