In a statement, Collins said that with the book, she wants to explore certain things properly including, who we are and what is required for the survival. She further added, “The reconstruction period 10 years after the war, commonly referred to as the Dark Days — as the country of Panem struggles back to its feet — provides fertile ground for characters to grapple with these questions and thereby define their views of humanity.”
Collins produced three novels which sold over 100 million pieces. The first is The Hunger Games (2008), Catching Fire (2009) and Mockingjay (2010). The books were adapted into movies, that starred Jennifer Lawrence. They were released in 2012, 2013 and the final story was split into two movies.
