Transcript of The Hunger Games Book Report

The Hunger Games
By: Suzanne Collins Book Report by: Grace Bayerle The main theme in the Hunger Games is, family comes first. This shows in the story by when Prim's name was called, Katniss was willing to sacrifice her own life for her sister's, by volunteering to take her place. Protagonist Katniss Everdeen The protagonist of the story is Katniss Everdeen. She is the protagonist because she feels that the Hunger Games shouldn't exist because it's killing innocent people! She is also a very loving person, who is different from anyone in Panem. The main character of The Hunger Games is Katniss Everdeen who is a 16 year old girl who loves to hunt in the woods beyond District 12, with her best friend Gale. She has been the one to provide for her family, with food and water ever since her father died in a mining explosion. She is very protective of her little sister Primrose Everdeen, and this shows when she volunteers to be in the Hunger Games when Prim's name is called at the reaping. Katniss is the main character because the story is based from her prespective and how she feels in her life. The Hunger Games was written by Suzanne Collins, New York Times Bestselling Author. Its genre is adventure/dystopian/science fiction/action.
It was published by Scholastic Press, an Imprint of Scholastic Inc, and was printed in the U.S.A in October,
2008. The book designs were by Phil Falco, the "Jacket" designs were by Phil Falco and Elizabeth B. Parisi, and the "Jacket" art was made in 2008 by Tim O'Brien. I chose this book because I have seen the movie and I loved it, so I wanted to see if the book was as good, and it was even better! I can't wait to read the rest of the series! Antagonist There are a lot of antagonist's in this story, but the main antagonist is Cato, who has been out for Peeta and mostly Katniss ever since the chariot rides. He is the final person that they have to compete with, and Katniss and Peeta end up shooting an arrow in his hand which makes him fall off a tower and onto the ground where slowly, the holographic wolves eat him. The time period in The Hunger Games is sometime in the future. This shows by all of the technology that we do not have yet, like the holographic dome that the Hunger Games is in, the things that they are able to do and put into the Hunger Games, like holographic wolves, making forest fires, draining ponds, etc. The setting in The Hunger Games starts in District 12 where there are people with ragged clothes on, beat up houses, and not many things to get food from. Then its goes onto the train that looks like the opposite of District 12, nice chandeliers, and all kinds of food on fancy tablecloths. Then, one of the last settings is the Hunger Games dome, which is basically a big forest with tall sturdy trees, lakes and ponds, caves, and lots of eatable animals. The Hunger Games is about a 16 year old girl named Katniss Everdeen who lives in Distirct 12. Every year there is a reaping where a girl and a boy ages 12-18 get pulled from their district and they have to "fight to the death" in a competition called the Hunger Games, and this year Katniss's little sister Primrose Everdeen (12) gets called, and Katniss volunteers to take Prim's place in the Hunger Games. After Katniss volunteers they call Peeta Mellark to be in the Hunger Games as well. They go on a train to the capitol, and when they get there they start training for the Hunger Games. They train for 2 weeks and then they go to where the Hunger Games is located. After a while, Katniss finds out that if people from the same district are still alive, that they can both win the Hunger Games, so she goes to find Peeta who is badly hurt, but she nurses him back to health, and they end up winning the Hunger Games! Along the journey, Katniss finds out Peeta loves her, so to get sponsors to help them stay alive, she goes along with the "star-crossed lovers from District 12" thing, but she doesn't know if she actually has feelings for Peeta. I liked a lot of things about this book, but one of my favorite parts was when Rue and Katniss spent time together after Katniss woke up from being stung by the Tracker-Jackers. The movie didn't show as much as them hanging out as the book did and I really liked reading about the times they had together. Another one of my favorite parts was when Katniss was trying to think of a plan to destroy Cato and his alliances food. Even though I already knew what was going to happen because I had seen the movie, it still gave me that adrenaline and excitment of what was going to happen next! I also loved it when after Katniss shot the arrow into the apple that was in the pigs mouth at the capitol, she said, "Thank you, for your consideration." because they weren't really paying attention to her until then. The only thing that I really disliked about the Hunger Games, was when Rue died. I know that she would have had to die for Katniss and Peeta to win, but it still made me really sad because she seemed like a really sweet, and tough girl who could have mabye won herself. What I learned from reading this story, is that I would never want to be in the Hunger Games! I would be scared out of my mind, and would not be able to concentrate on anything! I also learned that I don't think that they should have a Hunger Games, because it's not right to be entertained by other people from your own district who are sufferring or in pain. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adrenaline pumping, and mysterious books, or to anyone who just wants to read a fun, and interesting story. Thank you for watching and...The End!
