Writer Suzanne Collins was forty-six when she published "The Hunger Games," a novel for young adults set in a dark future where North America has been obliterated by war and climate change. The residents of Collins's dystopia are forced to send their children to fight to the death in a sadistic game created by the government. The book wrestles with meaty themes: the effect of war, the dangers of voyeurism in popular culture, and how governments use hunger and threats of violence to control populations. This new edition details Collins's life before the Hunger Games, from the first eighteen years of her writing career in television to her well-received children's book series called The Underland Chronicles. Later chapters explore the phenomenal and unexpected success of the Hunger Games series, a franchise which has a net revenue of over four billion dollars to date.
In her trilogy of The Hunger Games, Collins imagined a society where children are forced to train as warriors and then fight each other to the death in a gruesome annual tradition. Her stories teach her readers about the complexities of war, and make comments on modern society. Dystopian novels are not new to young readers, and this book introduces you to Collins's inspirations and sources.
The action and adventure continue for Gregor in this stunning fantasy from Suzanne Collins, bestselling author of the Hunger Games. New cover art coming July 1st! Gregor swears he will never return to the Underland, that strange world below New York City. But he is a key player in another prophecy, this one about an ominous white rat called the Bane. The Underlanders know there is only one way to lure Gregor back to their world: by kidnapping his little sister, Boots. Now Gregor's quest reunites him with his bat, Ares, and the rebellious princess Luxa. They descend into the dangerous Waterway in search of the Bane. If Gregor does not fulfill the prophecy, his life, and the Underland, will never be the same.
