Warning: SPOILERS for the first Hunger Games novel

The Hunger Game is one of the most popular young adult novel series' rivaling Harry Potter and Twilight. As the first of its film adaptations was just released in March 2012, readers and audiences have been pleasantly surprised at this fresh, dynamic, young female protagonist. In this video I'll explore Katniss' character in the first novel as it relates to gender and portrayals of violence. Be sure to stay turned for Part 2 where I compare the book to the movie.
