Hunger Games

  1. From the first book, at least, we don't know the populations of the other districts. It wouldn't be implausible for D12 to have a pop of 8,000 and for (some of? most of?) the other districts to have populations five or ten times that size. (California's population is 66 times Wyoming's, for example.) There's no reason why D12 has to be comparable in size to the other districts.

    That said, it's possible that books 2/3 reveal details about the populations of the rest of Panem; I haven't read them yet.

    Thanks Benjamin!! Well, it would not matter really if the other districts have a population five or ten times the size of District 12... I was thinking that the population of every district would be at least a few million, so now I agree that the Games are really a punishment by taking the lives of 23 and sometimes more teenagers every year.

    My favourite song from the movie's soundtrack is Abraham's Daughter by Arcade Fire, I am listening to it right now!! =)

    In the book, what happened to the character called Thresh??
     
  3. He dies, but how it happend is not revealed to Katniss. (Although presumably she could have found out afterward.)

    Books 2 and 3 do expound upon the populations of the other districts.

    Book one also reveals how Thresh died during the live television broadcast before the winners head home. They recap the entire games for the winners to view on stage.
