|District 6 - Transportation|
As I re-read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, I find myself wondering about different things. I thought I'd start a weekly series of things that make me go, "Hmmm?" These are thoughts that pop into my head that make me even more excited to see the movie, hoping these questions are answered on the big screen.
Before TheCapitol.pn released the district industries, I always thought District 3 included transportation, along with electronics/technology. Why did I think this? On page 219 in chapter 16 Katniss describes the boy from District 3 being from the place "where they have the factories, where they make televisions and automobiles and explosives." But, as you can see from the poster of District 6, they are responsible for transportation.
Is it possible that District 3--technology--still makes the automobiles, while District 6 is just responsible for the actual physical transportation of Capitol officials, tributes, and victors? What do you think?
I think that District 6 must just be the transporters. Based on their occupations (also released by TheCapitol.pn), it seems their job is just getting people around, not making the vehicles.
And one more thing that makes me wonder...are those hovercrafts in the District 6 sky (see close-up of image below)? They somehow don't look like the image I had of a hovercraft. I always pictured one looking more like a flying saucer. These look a little like flying motorcycles. Although, I do find them fascinating. (I have so many more things that make me go, "Hmmm..." about these hovercrafts!)
So, do you have something that makes you wonder as you read The Hunger Games? If so, comment below. Perhaps we can figure it out, or maybe it is something that we'll just have to wait and see.
