Hunger Games vs. Book Hunger Games

Elsewhere on the internet


Anita Sarkeesian of Feminist Frequency as usual, says many intelligent things, this time about how changing the perspective of The Hunger Games (from first person in the book to third in the movie) and the way that the story is presented an consumed (from private reading to public viewing) changed certain aspects of the experience, and even in some cases the meaning of the story as a whole.

Kind of what you’d expect from a story that plays with themes of exploitation in entertainment. In the beginning of the video she mentions another video just about The Hunger Games as a book. You’ll find it embedded below.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
