The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins is a dystopian novel that addresses a story of a sixteen-year-old Katniss driven to fight to the death against other teens in the games while the rest of the country glued to their TV to watch these. The government aims to strengthen its power through these games and suppress any revolting attempts of the citizens. Suzanne Collins's novel
is implicitly or explicitly the description and critique of the war news and reality shows, and competitions in these shows. Collins appears to suggest rescuing the future by focusing on the current predicament of human. This paper discusses how people read the false reality and continuing violence screening from reality television shows and argues how media contents fascinate and dehumanize them.
