The Many Faces of Katniss Everdeen: Exploring the Heroine of the Hunger Games - Valerie Estelle Frankel

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This is my honest opinion, which I have not been compensated for in any way.

I recently read the first two books of the Hunger Games series and was interested in this collection of essay dissecting Katniss's identities.

The first chapter was really interesting. The author discusses the role of reality TV in The Hunger Games series and analyzes the parallels between the universe of the book and our modern society today. It was a really thought-provoking chapter.
I also liked the chapters: "Katniss Onscreen" (analyzes the movie adaptation) "Katniss the Hungry- Food in the Hunger Games", "Katniss Lives the Roman Histories" (explains how many characters in THG are based on characters in Roman history), and "Katniss the Teen Soldier".

I wish the author spent a bit more time discussing the audience's reaction to Rue and Thresh's skin color, and the issues surrounding that. But I like that she discussed Katniss's "olive skin" becoming white in the film.

Overall, a great supplement to fans of THG.
