The last standard that defines the novel The Hunger Games that gives the Fantasy Fiction/Sci-Fi genre a whole different standard is its distinctiveness or uniqueness. This means doing something that has not been attempted by any other novel. For example, it is common for sixteen-year-olds to want to be left alone by parents and authority figures. This novel is set in a political dystopian universe, but it is quite similar to the world that the readers live in. It shows how confusing emotions, such as affection, friendship and love can become without parents and a home. The novel expresses the message to readers that they have to live their lives and not get distracted by others. It also shows how inequality works between two opposite classes of people. People who live in the Capitol are filthy rich and do not suffer from hunger, disease, pain or scarcity of any kind. Everything that the Capitol needs is provided for by the Districts. These items include medicine, food, and other important supplies that are necessary for survival. The Districts are so poor and are always out of supplies and devices that they really need. These trends are not typically seen in the Fantasy Fiction/Sci-Fi genres.

In conclusion, The Hunger Games is one of the best novels I have ever read before. Each chapter just kept containing more and more adventurous and action-packed scenes. It gives the Fantasy Fiction/Sci-Fi genre a whole different level of reading experience because it adheres to these three standards: an intriguing storyline, good character development, and it is unique as it contains something different from other books. Additionally, this novel was named as Publishers Weekly’s “Best Book of the Year” in 2008 due to its fulfillment of these types of standards. The storyline is very creative and the characters are not depicted as the stereotypical male and female leads. The story line has a lot of conflicts between person versus person. Its climax and resolution are both exciting and emotional as it presents various situations that readers of all ages can relate to.
