jenbrdsly Posted March 16, 2012 Share Posted March 16, 2012 Any Katniss Evergreen fans out there? I read The Hunger Games at the same time that I was reading Parenting Teens with Love and Logic, and came up with some blog-worthy insights about an event that happens in the third book between Haymitch and Katniss. (No spoilers, I promise!) What I'm wondering, is what other learning lessons have come across to adults who have read The Hunger Games? I want to make some mental notes for talking points to have with my kids someday, when they are old enough to read the series. I was thinking that from a teen perspective, The Hunger Games are an interesting contrast to the Twilight series, in terms of how teenage romance is portrayed. I could see a teen coming away from the Twilight books and thinking that there is only one person in the whole world who could make you happy and if you don't have that person your life isn't worth living. But that is not how teenage love is portrayed in the Hunger Games. Eeek! Future conversations with my future teens are already freaking me out!
