One of the things I find of most note in the Hunger Games trilogy is how gender roles appear to have generally been flipped with regard to the characters Katniss, Peeta, and Finnick. It is not simply that the rules have been flipped, as characters such as Haymitch and Primrose are more traditional while still regarded as acceptable. The individual characters are strong enough that the gender role difference is acceptable. Additionally, the foreign country of Panem can be considered a place where things are done differently, and its citizens are not judged the same way as modern Americans.
So here's a book report I wrote for my English class this year -- while reading, please keep in mind that my teacher hasn't read any of the books so I had to explain the plot shortly... Even if it kinda overran from short to, well, long. Ish.
