What do you think is the main message that Suzanne Collins was trying to say through the Hunger Games?

You could take away a lot of messages from this story. The main message I got from the story is when government gets out of control, the people will band together and eventually rise up. It has to happen for anything to change.

Katniss saw that Coin was, in some respects, no better than Snow. After all of the sacrifice and lives lost during the rebellion, she could not let Coin in power. Katniss would not let the same kind of government be back in control. The people of all districts had to have more say in how things were run. It was clear that Coin had no intention of allowing the freedoms that all of the districts had fought so hard for.

You're very right that was one of the messages I got from it. She did the right thing in killing Coin. Another message I got from it was that we could obliviate ourselves if we keep acting this greedy and if we keep warring over ridiculous things.

Don't forget the whole being slaves to media thing - bread and circuses. The Capitol citizens were so glutted on food and entertainment that they were blind to the fact that the Hunger Games was, at its core, senseless murder. Instead, they lived a life SO different from the kids in the games that they were able to become desensitized to it and were completely unable to realize that what was on their screens was actually real - rather, it felt fake, they felt detached, and even though they know it's really happening, it still seemed unreal, and therefore it didn't bother them.

Ha, I didn't word that well. I'll try and rethink it and write it out better later ...

And how obsessed we are with reality tv.

She is trying to say if we keep treating the world the way we are, it will become Panem.
