Exposition Rising Action Climax Conflict Protagonist Antagonist Setting: S U Z A N N E C O L L I N S SUZANNE COLLINS Catching Fire
By: Suzanne Collins Was just sitting in bed one night and started reminiscing about writing a book between t.v. reality & the whole coverage of the war.
"Hunger Games" was a huge success and came out with the film in 2012.
Books started to sell out like crazy and everyone was talking about when the next movie would be released. Suzanne is very private when it comes to her life. Suzanne is currently married to Cap Pryor, the actor.
Together they have two children and currently live in Connecticut. Throughout the story the setting mainly takes place in Panem (a nation established during an unknown time period in a post-apocalyptic world.)
The main setting is in the arena (a large enclosed outdoor area) where the actual "Hunger Games" is taking place. The protagonist is Katniss Everdeen. She is the protagonist because she is trying to show everyone that there will always be a struggle in life, but people just have to want it and work for things in life. People just have to want to better their life. Nevertheless, nothing ever is handed to you, so you have to try your hardest to make things work. man vs. man, man vs.self & man vs. nature

The main conflict would have to be, Katniss trying to get out of the arena alive once again.
Man vs. man because Katniss has to decide who to keep keep alive and whom she wants to kill.
Man vs. self would be Katniss playing against 23 other tributes.
Man vs. nature because of the environmental factors inside the arena. Katniss is torn between which life to choose and what would not only be best for her, but for everyone. Her decision is to either run away with Gale, or to stay in Panem and be with Peeta. This is a very difficult decision for Katniss because she knows that she could risk many peoples' lives depending on her decision. When Katniss and Peeta are about to compete in the Quarter Quell, president Snow tells Katniss that if she makes one wrong decision, people she loves will die. This is definitely when things start to take action, and become intense. The climax is when Katniss and Peeta have outlasted all the other tributes.
After rules change in the game they threaten suicide rather then kill each other.
- Was born in Hartford, Connecticut
- Was the daughter of a air force pilot, which meant she moved a lot throughout her life time. The Antagonist is President Snow. He is a very clever and mysterious man. He is the type of man that wants everything done his way or no way at all. President Snow has also made it clear that there is no room or time for mistakes so you better do as he says. Falling Action The falling action is when Peeta and Katniss both get 12's as their skill level. The problem is that no one has ever gotten a score of 12 before, but they both now have. (12=the deadliest & 0=the weakest).
Katniss enraged the capitol by stating that her and Peeta would commit suicide if forced to finish the game. Resolution S U Z A N N E C O L L I N S Also wrote:

(#1-5)
Since this book is a sequel there really is not a resolution. But the resolution for this book would be when Katniss wakes up and finds that Peeta has been taken by the capitol and Gale tells Katniss that "there is no district 12 anymore." My Review: I would say that Catching Fire, is a very adventurous and intense book that will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more. I would rate this book a solid 5. The reason is because it's practical for anyone to read of all ages and will not disappoint you. It is a very unpredictable book. What i liked best: I definitely liked the ending the best. I was not expecting Peeta to survive along with Katniss once again. It was very heart felt moment and definitely a page turner. What i did not like: I did not particularly like the idea of the lottery and having one person chosen from each district to fight for their life for the pure entertainment, of the Capitol. What I would of changed: I like the story line of the book but I would of changed how they had to kill for survival. I found it kind of hard to read at times when they had to make the hard choices they had to make in order to survive. The worst part is killing for the entertainment of the rich. I would recommend this book to: I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for entertainment and suspense. I can guarantee you that you will NOT be disappointed. Suzanne Collins
