It was so temptingly, and I have just started to read it, and it seems to be interesting. When Rue is stabbed by a spear, Katniss sings to her as she dies. She goes hunting in the woods outside her district, District 12, with Gale, her best friend. In a daring act of suspense-building, the narrator decides not to tell us. When she is in her carriage wearing her flaming outfit, she sees herself in a television, she sees that she looks amazing, unforgettable.
The young man chosen is Peeta Mellark, who is the same age as Katniss. Katniss explained: The result was Panem, a shining Capitol ringed by thirteen districts, which brought peace and prosperity to its citizens. Katniss credits him with saving her that day. Gale's father died in the same mining accident as Mr. This was more food than Rue was used to seeing, and she was very thankful.
Trespassing in the woods is illegal, but that doesn't stop our narrator. They have to provide for their families. Second, she volunteered instead of her younger sister. After the rebellion was quashed, the Capital created the Hunger Games to maintain peace and order by breeding fear in the districts. She is responsible for feeding herself, her sister Primrose, and her mother, so she illegally hunts with her best friend Gale. Katniss is taken by surprise, but must simply act flattered.
She wears outrageous clothing and wigs, has a highly affected Capital accent, and considers the people of the districts to be rather uncultured. She started having horrible hallucinations, but then finally woke up. Like Peeta, Gale is also in love with Katniss. She is described to have black hair, grey eyes and olive skin. She risks her life to bring Peeta the medicine he needs. Another person she provided and protected was Peeta Mellark, her co-tribute.
The Treaty of Treason gave us the new laws to guarantee peace and, as our yearly reminder that the Dark Days must never be repeated, it gave us the Hunger Games. Peeta stops him so Katniss can escape, and she passes out in a ditch shortly after. The fence almost never had electricity running through it, but she always waited a bit and listened to check. They did not succeed and their district was obliterated. Katniss later goes about the arena looking for Peeta.
When they enter the arena the next day, Katniss is able to survive in the woods fairly easily, but soon the Gamemakers engineer a number of obstacles to bring the competitors together. She fell in love with Katniss' father, though, and left her comfortable life to live in the Seam. The two form a close bond, and Cinna acts as a source of comfort and encouragement before Katniss is forced to compete. But their strongest tool to promote disunion and to discourage rebellion is the Hunger Games: a yearly event where two tributes from each district are pitted against each other for the country to watch on television. Unexpectedly, however, he runs straight by them.
He replies saying that he doesn't, but that he does love one specific girl. She finds Peeta, but he is injured from a knife cut to his thigh. A summary of how why there are districts and how they work. And the more sponsors they have, the more likely they are to win the Hunger Games. The name she reads out? Please if you have any comments or concerns about copyright. By this point Cato, who killed Thresh, is the only tribute left, and Katniss decides to keep some berries in case they can trick Cato the same way. At this news, Katniss cries out Peeta's name.
It's spectacular and I regret not reading it earlier. Year after year, District 12 has a poor showing in the Hunger Games. She gives him the medicine before she passes out. She was no longer a regular resident of Panem. When the name is picked it is Prim, her sister. The are trained and the preform for judges and are given ratings. They are yelling, one of them says that he will kill whoever did this to them.
When Prim is selected as the female tribute, Katniss offers herself as volunteer and is allowed to serve as tribute alongside Peeta, a middle class boy from the district. While the meat was cooking she heard a noise. She finds her trapped under a net and sees her impaled with a spear. Without any other choice, they start walking to the lake. She sees a tiny little backpack and gets it.
In desperation, Katniss comes up with a plan, giving Peeta and herself each a handful of poison berries that Peeta had accidentally gathered. A sponsor is a person who is not in the games, but wishes to help a tribute by sending things to a tribute that will help them. The relationship is made even more fraught when Peeta confesses during a live interview that he has a crush on Katniss. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games volunteers as a tribute to save her sister from competing in the fatal game. They spend days growing closer in a cave, but Katniss lacks the skill to cure Peeta's wound.
