My Hunger Games Conspiracy Theory

I have a theory but I can’t figure out what it means.

Have you noticed that the titles of The Hunger Games trilogy go from three words, to two words, to one word?

The Hunger Games

Catching Fire

Mockingjay

I like to think that it has something to do with Katniss and Gale getting together. Perhaps the first title represents Katniss, Gale, and Peeta all being separate, but aware, of each other, Catching Fire represents that only one can be with Katniss (we all know that’s Gale), and Mockingjay represents that only Gale survives (note the ‘g’ and ‘a’ in the word mockingjay).

I know. I’m stretching.

    LOL NO! Not stretching at all! This is a very valid scientific theory and I do believe you are completely correct.

    Sounds more like Katniss winds up alone. Better than with Gale. LOL #TeamPeeta represent!

    Hey, I like it! And I keep asking myself what my deal is — I haven’t read The Hunger Games yet, but I’m getting it tomorrow, dagnabbit!

    DUDE! YES! Don’t do anything else until you’ve read those books. I promise, if you start reading them, you won’t WANT to do anything else. Promise promise promise.

    I agree with Heather. I want her to end up with Peeta. I can’t wait to read Mockingjay!

    what? you think that the only survivor will be Gale? that can’t be! if it comes to saving just one of them, Collins will have to save Katniss…maybe the author will even incorporate some uber-white-trashy twist like actually impregnating Katniss but never revealing whether the father is Gale or Peeta.

    trish Reply:

    No, I don’t think the only survivor will be Gale. I mean, if I had to choose one, I’d obviously choose Katniss. Speaking of choosing…

    Marry Shag Cliff … Marry Katniss, Shag Gale, Cliff Peeta.

    LOL! Well I think it represents how Gale was sort of in the first one, barely in the second one and (hopefully) not in the third one at all. ;) (I just had to rile up all you Gale fans….PEETA ROCKS!)

  10. Amy @ My Friend Amy

    actually you might be onto something but I don’t think it has anything to do with Katniss’s romance life! I’ve been reading HG theories this week and I can’t believe how brilliant some of them are! Has really made me want to reread the books so I can appreciate the many layers.

    (oh and I’m #TeamPeeta–meaning he’s my favorite character! :)

  12. Rebecca @ The Book Lady's Blog ()

    I can’t decide if this is crazy or brilliant or both. It could also indicate that, since you can’t have a title with zero words, this is absolutely the last book. Right???

  13. Chrisbookarama ()

    Maybe Peeta and Gale end up together. Katniss is too lone wolfish.

    I’m #TeamPeeta, like Amy. :) Go Amy!

    Peeta is the best charactor out of this series. Katniss is kinda selfish the whole time. I think Peeta deserves Katniss more than Gale though,

    Chrisbookarama…I am cracking up at your response. I totally thought of that too. LOL!!!

    I had no idea what you were talking about. Went to Hunger games’ website and now all I need to do is get to the library/bookstore. Must do it soon since I’m reading ahead ,THE HANDMAIDEN’S TALE.

    Damn you really are Team Gale! I mean, I’m Team Gale too, but not so strongly. I still have a soft spot for Peeta.

    Uh…I’ve never thought of this before…but it depresses me greatly…Katniss should be with Peeta.

  24. Sheila DeChantal ()

    Oh this is fun….. I should have brought popcorn to your blog so I could read all of these in full enjoyment (pre – Game On of course)

    Now I want to re-read the first two again so I am all ready for Mockingjay!

    [Reply]

  25. Amy ()

    I love it. I fully subscribe to your theory, because obviously she needs to be with Gale.

    [Reply]

  26. Vasilly ()

    Team Gale forever!

    [Reply]

  27. Kate

    I think that’s a VERY big stretch…… I don’t really care who she ends up with. I mean, I like them both, so it doesn’t matter who gets her.. right?

    So freaking hilarious! It might be a bit of a stretch, but an interesting one nonetheless!

    Wow, that’s very insightful! I totally agree with you; s’all about Gale!!!!

  30. Tif ()

    Hmmmm . . . very interesting!! BUT, I must say . . . I think you are definitely stretching it! I started out interested in the 3-2-1 . . . then you hit the Gale comment and you lost me! Maybe that is because I’m a Peeta fan?!?! :)

    [Reply]

  31. Katie ()

    Ha ha! I LOVE that theory!

    It does sound like a bit of a stretch, but I notcied how it gets shorter too :D

    If you like Hunger Games theory, you should google “pearl theory hunger games”. Its pretty cool – the person who wrote it believes that the person behind the rebellion is Madge’s mom / Masylee’s twin sister. It sound kind of absurd, but once you read it, it makes sense. :D

    [Reply]

  33. Okie

    That’s actually a pretty cool/intriguing theory. I personally doubt there’s an actual connection, but I also wouldn’t be terribly surprised to find out that there is one. Kind of a 3-2-1 countdown to a powder keg explosion at the end of Mockingjay….or maybe even something more dramatic.

    Makes ya think…
