On the surface, in popular novel and now movie “The Hunger Games” it appears that The Capitol has the best feng shui of all the “Districts”. Why? The people are prosperous, the buildings magnificent, the technology and fashions cutting edge. People living here are not wanting for material goods and pleasures. District 12 (where heroine Katniss Everdeen grew up) is surrounded by lush forest. However, the people there are forced to work in the coal mines and are starved for food.
All in all, the world of Panem does not have much positive feng shui energy. The first of the trilogy of books, ‘The Hunger Games’ is a thrilling read with lengthy descriptive passages that conjure up this post apocalyptic landscape and the characters that inhabit it. The movie version was edited with such rapid cuts one doesn’t get a real sense of the place or the horrific nature of the story. Much is glossed over too quickly in the movie. Perhaps they will expand on it in the sequels, ‘Catching Fire’, and ‘Mockingjay’. I hope so! If you read the book and saw the movie, give us your opinion on both here.
