Susan Carpenter's book review of Mockingjay gives insight into the writer's intent. This brutal series is intended as an anti-war statement and provides fodder for a great book discussion.
Los Angeles Times, August 23, 2010
"Collins' inspiration for the series, which was born from channel surfing between reality TV and news coverage of the Iraq war ( http://www.latimes.com/topic/unrest-conflicts-war/wars-interventions/iraq-war-%282003%29-EVHST000043.topic ), where the lines between young people competing for money and young people fighting in an actual war blurred in the author's mind."
