The Panem Companion gives fresh insight into Suzanne Collins’ trilogy by looking at the world of the Hunger Games and the forces that kept its citizens divided since the First Rebellion. With a blend of academic insight and true fan passion, V. Arrow explores how Panem could have evolved from the America we know today and uses textual clues to piece together Panem’s beliefs about class, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexuality, and more.
I love the Hunger Games trilogy, and love talking about it, but I don’t have the desire to analyze it as deeply as this book does. I know, however, that there are many readers who love to dig into the text, to explore the different themes and motifs present in a work of fiction. And I’m sure one of you would love this book!
