"Prim's face is as fresh as a raindrop, as lovely as the primrose for which she was named" pg (3). This caught my attention because I love how the author just says how clear Prim's face was. This made me think deeper did Suzanne also mean by her face being clear that you could see the lies that was hidden. Or am I just thinking a little to ahead then what I should think. A raindrop is so clear that you see things better, that's what made me think of that.
"So I learned to hold my tongue and to turn my feautures into an indifferent mask so that nobody can read my thoughts" pg(5). This came to me because my mom used to say to me a lot to hold my tongue, you may wish upon things but it may not come out the way you wanted in the end. Also the way the author added in to put on a indifferent mask so nobody can see my thoughts made me think of changing who you are for a few so that nobody can know how the real you thinks of things.
"Good hunting partners are hard to find" pg(9). This left a mark on me by the author because it gave me alittle laugh. Some people say it's hard to find good men or a good partner as in marrying. But since Gale and Katnip don't like each other in that way, the author Suzanne changed it to hunting partners. Cause they love each other and are close only in hunting.
"Crying is not an option" pg (13). The way the author makes Katnis so determined just makes me feel encourgaed by it. Sometimes you feel so lost but you tell yourself not to cry because how does crying help you. But in Katnis situation I would cry but not her she say's that why should I cry in front of cameras so people can get satifacture out of the whole thing. She makes me think that she thinks of things ahead instead of how things are now.
"Kind people have a way going inside me and rooting inside of me"pg(25). This caught my attention because I love how the author shows that kind people have a way where people let them in their life. Then it feels like they know you and understand you more than other types of people do.
"I decided not to deal with the bakers son" pg(25). I love how the author shows that Katnis cares for people in general but Peeta is the kind type of person who tries to get in Katnis life. But she is trying to stay away from him because she remembers their is only one winner and she doesn't want to feel bad if it is her and Peeta at the end of the games.
"As long as you find yourself, you will never starve" pg(42). This left a mark on me because if you know who you are then you know where you stand as a person. Nobody can bring you down because you know your weakness and what your good at. This quote made me think hard at what does it actually mean to starve if you didn't know you are. But someone can tear you down because you don't know how to stand for yourself.
"If you don't know yourself, you will starve" pg(42). This left a mark on me because it taught me that someone can tear you down so easily because you don't know who you are as a person. But if you know your weakness and what your good at nobody can break your wall down. I had to think hard about this quote.
"As I gain confidence, I know blow a kiss" pg(100). This shows that Katnis is finnaly being able to show her other side. Instead of being that girl who everyone thinks will stand in the back. This came to mind because Katnis has been that girl to provide for her family and to never say that she did things herself. But for her to take a big step is very important to see her come out of her shell.
"Please I might fall out of this thing" pg(103). I realized that Peeta is scared to fall on the fire behind them but he is also scared of something else. Katnis is like his guide or his armor in a way. She will be the one to protect him in the games if not he will die. I already see him needing her help just like is if she let go of his hand at the games then he will fall on the fire. This made me think more deeper than what I usually think of.
"The more likeable he is the more, the more deadly he is" pg(150). After being in the same booth with Peeta while the flames roar behind them. Katnis seems to be falling for how innocent and sweet Peeta is and how this game is defentily not for him to be playing at. But she remembers that he may be trying to win her good size and in the end may be as hard as rock. You can't judge people by how they look but wait until the games begin is the big thing.
"The games begin in two days,and trust will be weakness" pg(157). I see that Katnis doesn't want to trust someone who might turn heads on her and be a competitor instead of a friend. But Peeta did risk his life back home from getting a beaten by giving her bread to eat whern she was starving. But that was the past and she is looking now, at the GAMES!
"Whereas when you open your mouth,you come across more as sullen and hostile" pg(160). This quote will stay to me because as the games go on like the interview i see that people want you to change so an audience will like you. THe crowd wants Katniss to be fierce in the games, clever, but funny and sweet if you get to meet her. BUt that's not Katniss she is to herself and never open. I think that you should be who you are so the people will like you for you but I have to remember this is a game and you win or die.
"THey cant belive that a little girl from District 12 is doing well"pg(161). Since district 12 is the lowest class of all them, Katnis believes that during the interivew she should look her class not fancyed up but herself. Katnis who just wears a ragged up dress with stains on it from cooking and her hair tyed up. But remember the audience has to like you not who you are at distict 12.
"I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I'm as radiant as the sun"pg(165). I now feel like with the new styles that Katnis never goes through because of her background of District 12 she never got the chance to feel confident in herself or how she looks. BUt with the designers like Haymitch who tries to understand her he gave the oppurtuinty to know she is and how she looks even without the pretty glamour.
"Myself? That's not good! pg(166). IN the games you have to charm the audeince and once Cinna tries to tell Katnis to be herself she then questions. Since Haymitch told her that she shouldn't be herself because of who and what type of perseon she is. But cinna seems to differ and think that Katnis is adoring to others.
"They call it hot chocolate. It's good." (Pg. 55) This made me realize that in the districts people don't have much access to food.
"... which will be our home/prison until the Games begin." (69) She thinks that they are going to lock her up inside the Training Center.
" Katniss! Katniss!" (71) The mood in this part of the story is glory.
" Katniss, i already know your handy with a knife says Haymitch. Not really, but i can hunt" (pg 89) Katniss is underrating herself. She is being humble.
"Talking of home is painful. Talking of the present unbearable" (97) Katniss is really sad about leaving her home.
"For all they know, you could be hiding your talents to get a low score on purpose" (187) What could this mean? The mood in this section is mysterious.
"Then they're flashing the number eleven on the screen". (pg 108) The mood of this section is joy because Katniss received a great score.
"Peeta has asked to be coached separately. " (113) Katniss believes that she will be betrayed by Peeta.
"Sometimes, when I clean a kill, I give Buttercup the entrails...This is the closest we have ever come to love" (4)
"Our part of District 12, nicknamed the seam, is usually crawling with coal miners heading out to the morning shift at this hour" (4). I can tell that District 12 is one of the least fortunate districts, and another problem added onto her life would be superfluous.
"But there's also food if you know how to find it" (5). Her family isn't wealthy enough to buy food, so she has to hunt it for her family.
"But Prim begged so hard, cried even, so I had to let him stay" (3). Prim, the main characters sister has a fiend over this cat that they named Buttercup after she let Prim keep it.
The main character still hasn't introduced her name, but she introduced her sisters name, moms name, and even her cats name, but still not hers.
"...But if the officials found out he could have been publicly executed for inciting a rebellion" (5). This shows that she does not live in a normal society, and it is science fiction.
On page 15 Katniss says that Prim is as safe as she could be, which means that it is highly doubtful that Prim will get picked for the annual hunger games. However, on page 20, the chapter ends with, "It's Primrose Everdeen"
"I volunteer as tribute!' I can infer that this is where the "good" part of the book starts. This is because when Katniss wolunteers for the Hunger Games, the whole mood of the story changes.
Belief in oneself is the key to success even in the hardest of circumstances. The Hunger Games proves this theory in several ways. In the Hunger Games, the society is made up of different districts, 1-12. District 1 is the “best”, and most fortunate district. What that means is District 12 is the “worst”, and least fortunate district. Once you are in a district, there is no way you can be taken out, or moved to another district. Katniss Everdeen and her family are in District 12. She lives with her younger sister and mother. The circumstances that they live in are tough, and very challenging, “Men and women with hunched shoulders, swollen knuckles, many who have long since stopped trying to scrub the coal dust out of their broken nails, the lines of their sunken faces” (4). This quote emphasizes the reality of their lives in district 12, and how tough it is. Once the reaping occurs, and Prim is chosen to represent district 12 from the girls in the Hunger Games, Katniss volunteers as tribute. That means that she is now going to the Hunger Games instead of Prim. This is really the changing point in the story. No one expects Katniss, a girl, from district 12 to even come close to winning the Hunger Games. However, her family believes in her, and more importantly she believes in herself.
All of the other players in the Hunger Games took her as a joke. However, Katniss was not the strongest one, but used her knowledge to an advantage, and was also a great shooter with the bow and arrow. The two main reason why Katniss succeeds (besides believing in herself) is because she was a very smart player. The first thing she did was find allies. Then once she had an alliance, she went from there. Katniss antagonized her enemies by being surreptitious. Katniss was doing everything right. In return, her and Peeta (her partner from district 12) made it down to the final two, she was nostalgia about returning home to her mother and sister. However, the rules suddenly changed, and now she had to go against Peeta, her friend from district 12.
During the games, Katniss made a great relationship with Peeta, and is now having to go against her. The reason why she made it this far was because she had her family in her heart while she was competing, and she knew that they believed in her. She knew that her family wasn’t just saying that she was going to do great, she knew that her family really meant it. Also, Peeta believed in her. That meant so much to her because having someone with her that believed in her really gave her confidence, and changed the games completely. They went on to tie the hunger games because they refused to kill each other. That proves that when people believe in you, and you believe in yourself, you can succeed in anything you put your mind to, even in the harshest of circumstances.
Katniss shows you here deep emotions by hunting and braking all of the district 12 rules (6)
"I know what blood poisoning is, Katniss. Even my mother isn't a healer." (266) Peeta is blood poisoned, so he might not make it.
"Well, i knew that goat would be a little gold mine." (273) Prim really liked her goat. She is very happy with it.
The hunger games is about to start (7)
Katniss is starting to get scared because her name is put into the drawings so many times
The drawings of who will be on the Hungary games is about to start (18)
Everyone is getting into there age groups so that the owner of district 12 can be able to have the count of all of the district 12 population
Katniss takes her sisters spot for the hunger games and everyone is in complete shock (22)
Katniss is defending her sister because she would not let her go into the hunger games, she is 12 and Katniss is 16.
Katniss shows erudite knowledge with all of the fishing and hunting she does for her family
Katniss acts as in a nonchalant way for Prim because her name was drawn for the hunger games
As Katniss says goodbye to her family and friends she did not want to cry so when she left for good she would look strong and bold in the hunger games (35)
Effie Trinket is making fun of all of the participants because of the way they eat because they have never been fed this much or had enough money in there family's in there life
Katniss is very placid when the stylist is making her beautiful for the ceremony because Haymitch told her to be calm (68)
Haymitch is starting to take the hunger games serious. I think that because Haymitch is making this like nothing for him and he does no\t care about it. (58)
Katniss is getting recognized because of Cinna and she is surprised that everyone loved her. I believe that she will get at least one sponsor because of the hard work her stylist put into her.
Katniss and Peeta are fighting about each other and who has more talents becuase they want different trainers so they can kill each other in the end of the game (91)
When Katniss and Peeta have to get evaluated they stay away from the stations are very skilled at so they can have a better chance to have there skills into the hunger games. (98)
Katniss got so mad at herself for going crazy that she got into a melancholy and started to get depressed about missing her family and what she had done. (105)
Katniss got mad and depressed at herself about her family and what she had done so she got into a melancholy mood. (105)
When Peeta is honest with the interviewer he says that he had liked a girl and it was Katniss but they could never because they may both die. (138)
Peeta declared his love for Katniss and Katniss pushed him into glass because she thought it made her look very weak but after Haymitch talked to her she realized that it made her look better. (136)
Katniss can not fall asleep at the thought of that by that time tomorrow she could be dead. (142)
Katniss is showing that she is still alive and ready to fight vs anyone. Also she is saying that 11 people are dead and 13 are left in the hunger games (152)
Katniss realized that Peeta has joined an alliance with the Career tributes from Districts 1 and 2. They were armed and ready to kill anyone that they came intact with (160)
While Katniss is searching for water she asks her sponsors for some but Haymitch knew she was hear and she finally got it
Katniss states "... I'm already starting to feel the effects of hunger" (189) this relates back to the title and might be why the tittle and games are called the hunger games.
Katniss has just woken up from the ants stinging her and she has no idea what is going on or how long she was unconscious for (197)
Katniss forms an alliance with Rue. And I think that with all that they know about hunting and gathering they will kill the career tributes and win the hunger games. (207)
While Katniss is spying on them she makes sure she is hidden enough so they cant see her or kill her. She is also taking note of what they say and do. (216)
Katniss realizes that she is jest not a player in the games but a fighter and she wants to win really badly for rue because she was just like Primm. (137)
Katniss is very excited when she hears that there was a rule change that Peeta and Katniss could both win the Hunger games. Katniss got so excited that she called his name. (246)
I think that Katniss will try to make an alliance with Peeta but he will say no because he still has an alliance with the career tributes. (240)
Katniss has found Peeta in a pile of mud wounded very bad and she does not know how bad the cuts are and she is trying to make sure that he stays alive so Katniss has an alliance member and they can go back home to there family's.
This is important because both of them can win the Hunger games together and they will not have to kill each other.
Katniss is caring for Peeta because she knows how I'll he is from the slashes and burns Cato gave him. She is really making sure that he is cared for becuase with out him she has no one to rely on in the games. She is trying to have him stay alive becuase she knows that he needs her becuase without her he may not stay alive.
I think that this is important becuase this is all that Kaniss haS, becuase without Peeta she had no one becuase Rue died and she feels like she had to win for her Peeta and Rue.
Katniss acts in a gallant way in the way she cares for Peeta. Katniss acts heroic, for he was about to die from hunger and having been slashed so badly from Cato. I think that this is important because she is taking a person that left her for the career tributes to her side (275)
Katniss's life has just been saved by Thresh a member of one of the prayer districts. He takes Clove of of her and saves her from getting killed by the knives Clove had had. After Thresh throws a rock at Cloves head and nocks her out and almost dead.
I think that this is important becuase it shows that the games are not all about being mean and evil it also shows that other members of other districts can end up helping you in the long run of the game like Tresh did to Katniss. (289)
I think that since Katniss says, "Cato could be right outside of our cave." (312) She is making sure that her and Peeta's safety is secure, because there are only 4 players left and they all want to win. Katniss knows that she has to make sure that she is dogged and keeps up her effort in the games to win. (312)
Fox face has just died from the berrys. Peeta was trying to collect food. She died instantly after she ate them. Katniss and Peeta know that Cato is there and is the one other competitor in the game so they make a fire to attract him then kill him. When Katniss was yelling at Peeta with the poisonous berrys she was very unpleasant with him and was acting ornery to him. (321)
Katniss is caring for Peeta because Peeta is hurt from the wolves. The wolves really hurt him. The wolves were former tributes that had been killed. I think that this is important because if it wear not for Katniss caring for him or the wolves biting him Peeta would be healthy and not in pain. (238
Katniss and Peeta won the hunger games Katniss is very nervous for Peeta. She just wants to make sure that he is ok. She is also dying to see Peeta just to know how he is doing. (152)
Katniss is making sure to show that she likes Peeta by showing that she feels so safe with him by her side. I think that it is important because there love is the reason they are both alive.
With the way they are acting to each other I think that Peeta and Katniss will get married because they are showing there love to each other by hugging and doing romantic things to each other. I think that this is important, because that would happen because the hunger games connected them. (362)
I believe that Katniss is going through character change when she says, "... but this feels different much more personal." (365) I think this because she is becoming more open with her feelings. I think this because Katniss is starting to really care and have deep feelings for Peeta. (365)
At the end of the book, Susan Collins leaves you on a cliff hanger with Peeta. She leaves you on a cliff hanger with Peeta. She makes dreading last like, "... I will finally will have to let him go." (374) I think this is important because Susan Collins makes you think hard about what will happen in the next book. (374)
I realized that the Hunger Games Takes place in a possible future
I predict that Katniss will somehow replace her sister, Primrose, in the Hunger Games.
I realized that the father was the only one supporting the family. When he died, it was a hard time for the rest of the family
I realized that Katniss does a lot to keep her family alive-she hunts with a risk of dying"I stole eggs from nests,caught fish in nets, sometimes managed to shoot a squirrel or rabbitfor stew, and gathered the vicious plants that sprung up beneath my feet" (51)
I realized that Katniss is being modest about her archery skills, even though she has been feeding a family of three using this skill.
I realized that Avoxes are used to strike fear because it shows how powerless the people are against the Capitol
I realized that the people watching in the stands will be taking notes on who will win, based on their performance
I realized that the other competitors had been gearing up for this their whole life "Each tribute must have fifty to a hundred pounds on me. They had project arrogance and brutality. When Atala releases us, they head straight for the deadliest looking weapons in the gym and handle them with ease."
This book is written in first person, I think the author did to let reader to think in Katniss's(main Character) view. ( the whole book)
Katniss has a little sister name prim. (3)
Katniss has a little sister name primrose. (3)
Primrose first got chosen as tribute for the Hunger Game, then Katniss volunteer as tribute. District 12 hasn't has a volunteer in many years. (22)
In some districts, winning the game is a great honor, so people often volunteer to risk their life for victory. But District 12 is the poorer district, so the word "tribute" pretty much means "Corpse"(death) to those people. (22)
I think Katniss is a valiant girl, because she is in District 12 and "tribute" means death. But she still volunteered because she love her sister and don't want Prim to get hurt.
I think having confident about the game is very vital , because when you have confident you bring out your best.
I think people in District 12 feel contempt tor the Hunger Game, because playing it means death to them.
"that was part of District 13's job until they were destroyed." There were another-District 13, I wonder how did they got destroyed. (74)
I noticed that the people who run the Hunger games started a fire near the edge of the map to get Katniss to come fight near the center of the map. 172
I noticed that Katniss likes to hide in trees for a higher chance of survival.
In the area, there is a vast number of dangers- people killing each other, tracker jacket, fire ball.
Katniss is expressing her indignance by shoot at the apple in front of the Gamemakes, because the Gamemakers calls her to preform but they don't even look at her. (101-102)
"handsome lad like you there must be some special girl" "Well, there is this one girl. I've had a crush on her ever since I can remember.......... Because ...because...she came here with me" OMG!!! Peeta likes Katniss!!! (130)
I think the Gamemakers sets the edge of the area on fire is to get all the player closer. (173)
"You know, they're not only ones who can form alliances." " you want me for an ally?" "why not?" "Ok, It's a deal." Katniss is teaming up with Rue. Since Rue saved from tracker jackers, and help Katniss fix her stings. (200-201)
Amazing news!!! This year, there can be 2 winner if they are from the same district. (244)
Rue dies. The boy from District 1 shot her, and Katniss shot him in the neck. And before Rue die, she ask Katniss to sing for her, and she does. Sooo sad :( (233-234)
The boy from District 1 was Katniss's first kill.
I noticed that when Katniss hides, she barely diverts the suspicion of the enemy's.
Katniss raze Cato's team's supplies. (233)
And she can't hear with her left ear anymore I think is because the explosion bust her eardrum. (223)
Clove grapple with Katniss on the ground and she is going to kill her, since they are in the game and Clove wants to win. (284)
At the end, the gamemakers changed their mind about have two winner from the same district. I think they changed it because they want to see a show- two lovers fighting for victory. (342)
Katniss know there has to be one victor. So she had a idea-katniss and peeta threaten the gamemakes by willing to eat poison berry together. (344)
Thresh- the boy from the same district as Rue, saved Katniss from Clove and let her go. Because Katniss help Rue.
Thresh "Just this time, I let you go. For the little girl. You and me, we're even then. No more owed. You understand?" (288)
"Stop! Stop! Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to present the victors of the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark!" Katniss's idea worked, She and Peeta both won! (345)
Katniss raze Cato's team's supplies. Cato and his team has nothing and they have to hunt for food now. (233)
I notice that Katniss love to hid on a tree. I think she like that because hiding on a tree has less chance to be found and have higher chance killing people under the tree.
Katniss raze Cato's team's supplies. Cato and his team has nothing left and they have to hunt for food now. (233)
"I Volunteer as tribute" the words that struck the whole world of Hunger Games. For the first time a volunteer and it is for her sister. That was groundbreaking.
The hunger games is a great book. And I believe that katniss selfnesses helped her win the Hunger Games. Early in the book you see how good of a person Katniss is. Her sister got enrolled into the Hunger Game. Katniss being the big sister screamed “I volunteer as tribute.” I don't think she even knew what she has just said. The first volunteer and it was absolutely shocking. But there was a plus side of volunteering. She came into the hunger games would come into the hunger games with a completely different mind set. Of people would be shocked but Katniss knew she would fight since she volunteered. That mindset was so vital for winning the hunger games. Also a lot of the competitors didn’t have a such a big part in their own family as Katniss does. She is basically the mother. The father died in a mining accident and the mother isn’t very well. So if Katniss dies so does her family. Katniss had a purpose to win other than staying alive.
Katniss had some things that brought her down. Such as the death of someone who she was really cause which is. But Katniss fought for her family. Katniss didn’t make her family feel good for volunteering. BUt she made herself made good. People are coming into the Hunger games feeling bad, and truly frightened. Katniss felt good since she did a good deed. If Katniss was to be chosen out of the pot herself her attitude would be completely different. She would be frightened. And knowing Katniss she gets scared very easily. So I believe that Katniss’s selfnesses helped her win the Hunger Games. If she had a different attitude she would have probably lost the Hunger Games.
Rue made Katniss nostalgic for her sister-Primrose. I think is because first Rue and Prim are the same age and Katniss feel protective of Rue just like to Prim.
There is no verbiage in the rule book; kill or get killed.
There is no verbiage in the rule book, it is very simple; kill or get killed.
In the book The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, the hunger games helps Katniss find her true self. In the novel, Katniss starts out in a poor village with limited supplies and a small family with her mom and her sister. The thing is, everyone is held there purposely for one reason. There are 12 districts in all. Katniss is in district 12. Each year there is a town meeting right in the center of town that chooses 2 people, a boy and a girl from each district that will than go to the hunger games. They are chosen randomly no matter what age. The girls were chosen first, Katniss was shocked. Her sister Prim got chosen. Katniss wouldn’t let this happen, in order to let her sister be free, she participated to be chosen for the hunger games! Katniss had pretty much took a bullet for her sister. Later, a boy named Petta was chosen to go to the hunger games. Going from poor to very rich Katniss was not used to the change. She didn’t at all seem very excited to be in this new experience. She was rather thinking about her family and her fate in the hunger games. Later all the districts had to show their skills and try and get a good score out of 12 to get a good sponsor. When it was Katniss’ turn, she took the bow of the rack and went for the target. She aimed, fired…. Definitely not bulls eye. The judges just started laughing and eating. Katniss was furious and shot an apple right out of a judges hand. They were speechless and Katniss walked out like king. Later that day she got the highest score, an 11!! Everyone wanted to sponsor her and she was famous. It was time for the final round she finally was in the hunger games. And then she thought about her family and all the people in her town… The hunger games had made Katniss find her true meaning in life.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
