It's like set in a post apocalyptic North America sort of. The country is called Panem and it never really states what happened to any other country which is kind of a drag but yeah

None of the accents were british...none. Effie's I understand why someone might have thought that but it's more of just a posh american accent. And its said a million times in the book that it's north america, in the rocky mountains, the appalachian mountains...all in the US.

Plus the outfits are insane, nothing to do with British clothes, they are just meant to be over the top and ridiculous.

katniss was supposed to be arabic. in fact the 12th district was supposed to be about the white people oppressing the arabs who were lower class. and they didnt want to hire a minority actress. they just wanted her to be white

Straight black hair, olive skin, we even have the same gray eyes. But we’re not related, at least not closely. Most of the families who work the mines resemble one another this way."

In the books, our heroine Katniss Everdeen is invariably described as having “olive” skin, grey eyes and black hair. She tells us through narration that this is how people from District 12, “the Seam”, look – including her best friend Gale, and her now deceased father. She contrasts this against her mother’s appearance – a blonde, blue eyed woman from the small merchant class, her little sister who resembles her mother, and the other tribute from District 12 – Peeta, a baker’s son.


in case you forgot the scene in hunger games where katniss is in the rain hungry and peeta throws her some bread. this is the racial war. where katniss's race is looked down upon. The whole scene didn't make sense because she WAS WHITE. You fail at life

That sounds native american, arabs tend to have curly hair. Native americans usually have straight hair.
#218 to #217 - baitdoesnttalkback (01/28/2014) [-]
no arabs do not. but even if native american is right doesnt change the original criticism of her being white
User avatar #219 to #218 - vatra (01/28/2014) [-]
Well, more wavy than curly, just not straight. But yeah I wasn't denying or arguing against that, just what race you were saying.
#220 to #219 - baitdoesnttalkback (01/28/2014) [-]

Now I never read the books so I have little to go on but the ramblings of a friend who did. But should a lot of the land be other areas that weren't districts? Like areas that didn't rebel. Cause I thought it was a civil war type thing where the country was split in two, but all splotchy instead of like the south vs north.

I think that map is a bit weird but a portion of North America is flooded and a large majority of the land is uninhabited and wild. The book never really goes into too much detail or anything but the reason the districts aren't spread out or there aren't any other parts of Panem that aren't districts are because the Capitol was always super oppressive to begin with, people were never allowed to leave their district in the first place.

me personally i read all three book they where good but i really don't like the ending to it even i'm not sure what happened or why everything ended up the way it did i guess its for the reader to guess about what did happen in the past but its still a good book to read tho
