Born in 1962 in Connecticut, USA, American writing Suzanne Collins worked as a screenwriter for several children's programs before writing the Hunger Games, a children's title that became a worldwide phenomenon in the late 2000s. it takes place in a dystopian future teenagers are forced to participate in a game of life and death broadcast on television.
The idea for the book came up one day when Suzanne was in front of the TV. On one channel, she saw a group of contestants a reality show. In the other, images recorded during the Iraq War. The combination of the two themes was also influenced by the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. The result? Success. As we know, the title was the first in a trilogy, adapted later - and also successfully - for the cinema.
