From the Washington Post: An Interesting Analysis of “The Hunger Games”
April 28, 2012
I just stumbled upon a very interesting article on Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games.
If you haven’t read this chilling series, I would definitely recommend it (I can’t speak for the movie, but with a few exceptions books are usually better than their cinematic counterparts). Washington Post blogger Diana Butler Bass raises some interesting points about the absence of God and religion in Collins’ post-apocalyptic world that bears a disturbing resemblance to our own. God may be absent, she suggests, but religion is not. And ultimately, neither is faith.
