Where you can starve to death in safety. ‘ mutter. ” Peg 6 3. “Then came the Dark Days, the uprising of the districts against the Capitol, Twelve were defeated, the thirteenth obliterated.
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. ” Peg 18 4. There is a scene where Catkins, Gale, and Image are together and it introduces us to some of the main characters and their feelings on the reaping. Peg 12 Thematic Questions: The Capital is a controlling and ruthless government that takes children from each district to play in their sick and twisted “Games” where the children of varying ages are forced to fight to the death.
Chapter 2 Characters: Catkins, Prim, Hammiest, Gale, Effie Trinket, PETA Setting: The Country Panes, District 12 Square Describes Catkins volunteers to take the place Of Prim as tribute then PETA Mallard is chosen as the male tribute causing Catkins to have a flashback. I. Aha boy took one look back to the bakery as if checking that the coast was clear, then, his attention back on the pig. He threw a loaf of bread in my direction. ” Page 2. “She zips back to the podium, and I don’t even have time to wish for Gale’s safety when she’s reading the name. PETA Mallard. ‘ ” Peg 25 3. Hammiest is whisked away on a stretcher, and Effie Trinket is trying to get the ball rolling again. ” 4. “It didn’t occur to me until the next morning that the boy might have burned the bread on purpose. Might have dropped the loaves into the flames, knowing it meant being punished, and then delivered them to me. Peg 31 Thematic Questions: Effie Trinket is a character that really bothers me, she stands at her podium and is actually excited to send two children to their death in the Hunger Games. I can’t picture how anyone can enjoy participating in that kind of event or believe in the ideals of their terrible society.
Chapter 3 Characters: Catkins , Prim, PETA,Effie Trinket, Hammiest, Pieta’s Father, Catkins’ Mother, Gale, Image Setting: The Country Panes, The District 12 Justice Building, Bullet Train Describes The friends and family say their goodbyes to Catkins and PETA, who are then escorted to a bullet train where they meet their advisor Hammiest and begin their journey to the Hunger Games. 1. “My sister and my mother come first.

My mother sits beside me and wraps her arms around us. For a few minutes, we say nothing. ” Peg 34 2. ‘The baker sits awkwardly on the edge of one of the plush chairs. H?s a big, broad-shouldered man with burn scars from years at the ovens. He must have just said goodbye to his son. ” Peg 37 3. “The speed initially takes my breath away. Of course, I’ve never been on a train, as travel between the districts is forbidden except for officially sanctioned duties. ” Peg 41 4. ” ‘How odd you two find it amusing. You know your mentor is your lifeline to the world in these Games.
The one who advises you, lines up your sponsors, and dictates the presentation of any gifts. Hammiest can well be the difference between your life and your death! ‘ ” Peg 46 This just elaborates on how the Hunger Games has essentially ruined the morality of District 12 and all of Panes, the emotion expressed between the parting families and their children is quite depressing. Chapter 4 Characters: Catkins, PETA, Hammiest, Effie Trinket Setting: The Country Panes, The bullet train, The capital tells Catkins decides that PETA cannot be trusted and they later meet with Hammiest about advice for the games, 1. Which also means the kind of PETA Mallard, the boy who gave me the bread, is fighting hard to kill me’ 60 2, “all right, I’ll make a deal with you. You don’t interfere with my drinking, and I’ll stay sober enough to help you. ‘ says Hammiest_” Peg 58 3. ” You’ll be put in the hands of your stylists. You’re not going to like what they do to you. But no matter what it is, don’t resist,’ says Hammiest. Peg 58 4. Catkins and PETA agree to completely abide by what Hammiest command them to do. The dyspepsia message in this chapter is not completely apparent.
However, Catkins who would other,vise be friends with PETA, begins to distrust him and think that he is out to kill her. Chapter S Characters: Catkins, China, Venin, Octavia, Fluvial, PETA Setting: The Country panes, The Capital, Remake Center Catkins and PETA are introduced to their design team who create magnificent outfits for them to Vera during the opening ceremonies. I _ ” ‘Not exactly. You see, Portia and think that coal miner things very overdone. No one will remember you in that. And we both see it as our job to make the District Twelve tributes unforgettable: ” says China_” Peg 66 2. I’ve been in the Remake Center for more than three hours and still haven’t met my stylist. Apparently he has no interest in seeing me until Venin and the Other members Of my prep team have addressed some obvious problems. ” Peg 61 3. “I’m in a simple black unitary that covers me from ankle to neck. Shiny leather boots lace up to my knees. But it’s the fluttering cape made of streams of orange, yellow, and red and the matching headpiece that denned this costume. China plans to light them n fire just before our chariot rolls into the streets. ” Peg 67 4.
Men the national anthem plays, they do make an effort to do a quick cut around to each pair of tributes, but the camera holds on the District 12 chariot as it parades around the circle one final time and disappears into the Training Center. ” Peg 71 Thematic Questions: The dyspepsia message in this chapter is a bit cryptic, I believe that is quite peculiar that everyone in the capital is celebrating these children for their amazing outfits when they know in the days to come only one will ever be seen alive again.

Suddenly all the birds stopped singing at once. Except one. As if it were giving a warning call. And then we saw her. I’m sure it was the same girl. A boy was with her. ” Peg 82 2 ” ‘They were running as if their lives depended on it. ‘ say. ” Page 3. ” The hovercraft appeared out of nowhere,’ I continue to PETA. ‘l mean, one moment the sky was empty and the next it was there.
It didn’t make a sound, but hey saw it. A net dropped down on the girl and carried her up, fast, so fast like the elevator. They shot some sort of spear through the boy. It was attached to a cable and they hauled him up as well… ‘ ” Peg 82 4. ” They were from here? He asks, and he secures a button at my neck. L nod. Theft had that Capitol look about them. The boy and the girl… ” Peg 83 When Catkins talks about the experience she had relating to the Box girl she it is not clear why exactly the couple was being pursued.
However, I can only assume that killing the boy instantly and confining the girl to a life without being able to elk was quite drastic and cruel under any acquaintances, Chapter 7 Characters: Catkins, PETA, Hammiest, TLA, Rue, Effie Trinket, The Game Makers, Setting: The Country Panes, The tribute lofts, The training center. Describes Catkins begins to train and begins to realize the stature of all the other tributes, especially one who appears to be 12 year old. L. Throw my spear, which I’m not too bad at actually, if I don’t have to throw too tar, and see the little girl from District 1 1 standing back a bit, watching us.
She’s the twelve-year-old, the one who reminded me so of prim in stature. Up close he looks about ten. ” Peg 98 2. “In District 12, we call them the Career Tributes, or just the Careers. And like as not, the winner will be one of them. ” Peg 94 3_ “Like me, she’s clever with plants, climbs swiftly, and has good aim. She can hit the target every time faith a slingshot. But what is a slingshot against a 220-pound male with a sword? ” Peg 99 4. ‘Without thinking, pull an arrow from my quiver and send it straight at the Kingmakers’ table.
I hear shouts Of alarm as people stumble back. The arrow skewers the apple in the pigs mouth and pins it to the wall behind it. Everyone stares at me in disbelief. Peg 102 think a lot of the readers were baffled when they read that the one of the tributes was a small 12 year old girl who in comparison to the career tributes stands no chance of surviving. This whole concept that the capital is able to rationalize these games at the basic level baffles me, but letting a 12 year old participate is almost demonic.

Pacts: 1. District 12 comes up last, as usual. PETA pulls an eight so at least a couple of the Carmakers must have been watching him. I dig my fingernails into my palms as my face comes up, expecting the worst. Then they’re flashing the number eleven on the screen. Ennui! ” Peg 108 2. I had been struggling along on my own for about six months when first ran into Gale in the woods. ” Peg 109 3. “I jumped back several feet as Gale materialized from behind a tree. ” Peg 110 4. Hammiest claims that Catkins only got a high score for her high temper. Thematic This chapter does not blatantly display a major dyspepsia aspect of their world UT, I would have to say any world where children have to hunt in the woods in order to survive because an oppressive government causes food shortages to occur is no perfect world.
Identity Chapter 9 Characters: Catkins, PETA, Hayrick, Effie, China, Caesar Setting: The Country Panes, City Circle Catkins is prepared for a big interview with Caesar which goes fantastically and where PETA admits that he has a crush on Catkins. 1. “As the audience SOHO and ash, I see China make the tiniest circular motion With his finger. But I know What he’s saying. Twirl for me. Peg 128 2. “Be honest. Be honest. I swallow hard. ‘She asked me to try really hard to win. ‘ The audience is frozen, hanging on my every word. Peg 129 3. ” ‘Handsome lad like you. There must be some special girl. Come on, what’s her name? ‘ says Caesar. ” Peg 130 4 “PETA blushes beet red and stammers out. ‘Because because she came here with me. ‘ ” Peg 130 Thematic Questions: In this chapter the tributes are put on stage to be displayed for everyone to see. The audience is actually excited for the children who are about to go fight to the death like savages tort their amusement. Find the whole idea of the games repulsive.
