The Girl Who Was On Fire
Katniss’s adventures may have ended, but her story blazes on in millions of hearts worldwide. Now thirteen major YA authors take you back to Panem in these moving, dark and funny essays. How does the way the Games affect the brain explain Haymitch’s drinking, Annie’s distraction and Wiress’s speech problems? What does the rebellion have in common with the War on Terror? Why isn’t the answer to ‘Peeta or Gale?’ as interesting as the question itself? What should Panem have learned from the fates of other hedonistic societies throughout history – and what can we? From the trilogy’s darker themes of violence and social control to fashion and weaponry, this collection reveals exactly how rich, and how perilous, Katniss’s world really is.
