The Panem Companion
The Panem Companion - V. Arrow

I was not completely sure what I was thinking when I decided to read a companion novel to this popular series. There were some questions that I wanted to know an answer to, but in hindsight, I think it probably wasn't really something for me.

The thing is, that I can get annoyed when people start over-analyzing something, which most certainly is the case in The Panem Companion. There are a few interesting pieces like, where in America are the different Districts located and what do they all do, but a lot of the book is actually taken up either by fan theories (which you can find online by the truckload) or metaphors which are apparently planted into the smallest details of the story.

Not for me.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

The Panem Companion - V. Arrow The author tried provided a fuller, richer and more complete picture of the nature of Panem and the people that live there from The Hunger Games. This is the Panem from the books and not the movie. According to the author this land was North America but not . It was also figured it took two hundred and forty to nine hundred ninety nine years to deteriorate to this place as Panem to rise in the Hunger Games. Katniss lived in the Appalachian Mountains and every decision she makes is a product of that place and it’s culture. Also the time the books spend in most of the country of Panem itself plays a central role in the story. I couldn’t really get into this story . I will say the author had a passion for The Hunger Games. But the author didn’t prove any theories in this book from proof from the books The Hunger Games. Sp it just didn’t really mean a lot. Just theories with no proof.

The Panem Companion - V. Arrow Just as this was getting interesting, at page 6, and we were discussing the sinking of continents and loss of arable land that could have mitigated the formation of Panem, my e-galley jumps from page 6 to page 23. And I was enjoying it! :-(
