The author tried provided a fuller, richer and more complete picture of the nature of Panem and the people that live there from The Hunger Games. This is the Panem from the books and not the movie. According to the author this land was North America but not . It was also figured it took two hundred and forty to nine hundred ninety nine years to deteriorate to this place as Panem to rise
in the Hunger Games. Katniss lived in the Appalachian Mountains and every decision she makes is a product of that place and it’s culture. Also the time the books spend in most of the country of Panem itself plays a central role in the story.
I couldn’t really get into this story . I will say the author had a passion for The Hunger Games. But the author didn’t prove any theories in this book from proof from the books The Hunger Games. Sp it just didn’t really mean a lot. Just theories with no proof.
