By: Suzanne Collins The Hunger Games Characters Plot Rising Action Falling Action Climax Resolution Symbol Peeta Mellark,
Gale Hawthorne, Primrose Everdeen
Haymitch Abernathy, Rue, Cinna, and Effie Trinket A place which used to be North America now has a Capitol which environs 12 districts. These districts are cruel, and every year there would be one girl and boy who are chosen to participate in the Hunger Games which is a survival death match between 12 other districts on a live TV show. So a 16 year old Katniss Everdeen volunteers to fight for her sister’s places to fight in the Hunger Games. So now she is one of the contestant in the Games and now has to face death it’s self to win for her sister, and beat the Game and win for her district. In the book the rising action is when the day of the reaping were two contestants are pick to fight for their district in the Hunger Games, and Primrose Everdeen is picked to fight in the Game but Primrose older sister Katniss volunteers to fight for her in her place, and also Peeta Mellark is pick to fight. After dealing with all the trouble, and had gone through fighting the other contestant, and also running for their lives from the Vicious wolves. Peeta and Katniss threaten to kill their selves instead of fighting each other on behalf of another rule change which was only 1 tribute could win instead of 2 tributes. Even though Peeta and Katniss won the Hungers Games after because the Capitol would not allow Katniss and Peeta to kill their selves , they must try to satisfy the Capitol because of how angry they were after they tried to commit suicide which had caused the Capitol to make a decision they did not like, and which was to consider Peeta and Katniss the winners for this year Hunger Games. In the end, Peeta and Katniss were the last two standing, and the creators of the game changed the rules of the game and told Peeta and Katniss that only one person could live. So Peeta and Katniss choose to both kill their selves at the same time, and then the creator change their mind and of the rules and know Peeta and katniss are the Winners of the Hunger Games. To me what I have thought to be a symbol in the book was Katniss Everdeen's Bow and Arrow, because it symbolizes how she was a good archer and a good hunter, and also it was the weapon she used to help her win the Games Katniss Everdeen, Recommendation I would recommend this book to people who like action and adventure, because through this whole book it was about action, and suspense, and plus this book is a series, and this would be the right book for readers who like to read series books, and for people who like to read books at night. Katness Everdeen Is a 16 teen year old girl who was chosen during the reaping day to fight for her district and the games called the “Hunger Games”, Katniss wasn’t chosen she volunteered to fight for her younger sister on the day of the Reaping. Peeta Mellark He is a teenage boy who tributes from District 12, and is the son of a baker. In the Hunger games Peeta plays the role in the story as the partner of Katniss Everdeen. Peeta has a strong love for Katniss, and in the story he tries to show his love to Katniss, but even though Katniss does not ruminate Peeta as a friend, he has saved her life many times in the story. Gale Hawthorne Was Katniss Hunting partner. Just like Katniss both of their fathers had died in a Mineexplostionn, and is very poor. Primrose Everdeen Is the 12 year old and is Katniss younger sister. Primrose is nicknamed Prim and she follows after her mother with her blue eyes and light hair. When Prim’s name is picked from the reaping Katniss then volunteered to take Prim’s spot in the Hunger Games and promises to Win the game. Haymitch Abernathy Is a used to be drunken coach for team Katniss and Peeta. Haymitch was once a Hunger Games victory years ago. In the Story Haymitch mentors Peeta and Katniss to make sure they win the game. Effie Trinket The escort of from the Capitol for District 12, she is very enthusiastic about the Hunger games, and sometimes Gale and Katniss like to make fun of her. In the story her role for District 12 was to pick 1 boy and 1 girl to fight in the the Hunger Games. Rue A 12 year old girl from district 11 who soon teams up with Katniss Everdeen. With her squirrel like abilities she is able to hop from tree to tree so she would not be caught be any enemies. Rue has six younger sibling and in her district she would work in the orchards, and even though Katniss is from a different district Rue still trust Katniss because of her Mockingjay pin because it shows that she loves Mockingjays. Later on she is killed by a boy from District 1, and when she dies katniss sings her one more song and decorates her body with flowers. Katniss then promises her that she will win the Game. Cinna Katniss' stylist , and this is his first Hunger Games. Cinna dresses normally and wears a little bit of Makeup, he also dresses Katniss in a style which would win the crowd. Through games Cinna dresses Katniss in the best of ways and is what Cinna is really skilled . Before the game started Cinna gives Katniss advice on the interview, and later when the game starts he gives Katniss her Mokingjay to her. Theme The theme in the book is survival, because in the book Katniss and Peeta have to fight for their lives and try to survive through the games. Also because how the different tributes fight each other and kill each other just for survival. Quotes -“I volunteer!” I gasp. “I volunteer as tribute!” (Pg: 22 Chapter 2)
