• Hunger Games Prequel

    From poindexter FORTRAN@VERT/REALITY to All on Sunday, July 11, 2021 11:52:00
    Anyone interested? I enjoyed the books much more than the movies, would be interested to see how they got there.

    The prequel is apparently set near the first quell, 74 years before the current series. Not sure how technical a writer the author is, whether she'd delve into the ecological change they hint about.


    ... What's up that way?

    Not really much interest here. I am a bit tired of Young Adult tailored dystopias already. They have overdone them so much in such a short span that I am already burnt from them :-)

    I would be more interested in learning how their govermnent managed to pull off the Hunger Games society. I like the idea of dividing up the population into decompartmentalised districts to prevent wide-spread revolution. It's very clever as dictatorships have to cull their populations as they are terrified of grassroots movements overthrowing them.

    There was a really good fan-flick spoof of the Hunger Games
    called the Starving Games. I thought that was pretty good if
    you were familiar with the story (which I was since the media
    hype called for my attention to read what all the fuss was
    about.)

    I don't think the prequel goes back that far. A brief venture
    at the fandom wiki for Hunger Games didn't turn up anything for
    me either. All we know is that the author's world of Panem
    suffered some kind of environmental crisis and the remaining
    nation/lands were divided into regions related to the resources
    they provided - or something like that. Region 13 was a
    nuclear one.

    Thanks for checking up on that information. Seems like the powers that be made the decision to save some of the population and have them become the labourers and workers servicing the crazily dressed elites who run their real society. It is a little like 1984 in that the proles are just there to serve the function of serving the state and the Inner Party.
