Summary "This book addresses Suzanne Collins's work from a number of literary and cultural perspectives in an effort to better understand both its significance and appeal. Assuming that readers are familiar with all three volumes of The Hunger Games, the book also avoids plot summary and character analysis, instead focusing on the significance of the story and its characters"--Provided by publisher.
