The book is written by Suzanne Collins. The hunger games books are a series with 3 books. I’ve read part one, two and three now. The hunger games have 439 pages and it was published at September 1 2009 by Scholastic Press. Three genres of the book are. Adventure, Dystopian and Science fiction.
The title of the book is the hunger games. The has been called the hunger games because the main thing that happens in the book is the game called the hunger games. In the hunger games 24 tributes have to survive till one tribute is left. In the arena is no food. So, called the hunger games. The subtitle Catching fire is because the main character Katniss Everdeen is called the girl on fire.
There are three main themes of the book. Dystopian which mean that the world is a big disaster. The book takes place in the future after ‘the end of the world’. In the book Panem is ruled by president snow, a dictator who doesn’t care about his population. He lives in the rich capitol. In the districts -where are the normal people live- they are really poor and a lot of people from district, 9,10,11 and 12 die off starvation.
Adventure is also a theme of the book. That’s because in the book there is a game called the hunger games. This year is the quarter quell. This hunger games. The 24 tributes are chosen from the remaining victors who already won the games. The 24 tributes have to survive. They survive by killing the other tributes and trying to find food.
The last main theme is science fiction. That is because the book probably takes place in the future and that is because there are really advanced tv’s. Weird weapons and the roof of the area is electronic and we in 2020 can’t do that.
Katniss Everdeen is the main character. In the book you can read her mind and see from her perspective. Katniss is a sixteen-year-old girl from the poorest district. District twelve. Katniss has dark brown hair, grey eyes and an olive skin color. These are traits of the people that live in the Seam. The poorest part of district twelve. Katniss is very good with a bow, she has learned that from her father. When Katniss was twelve years old he father died during an explosion in the mines. Katniss has a sister, Primrose (Prim), she is 12 years old and during her first reaping she gets drafted. But Katniss got really scared and volunteered for Prim. She is the first volunteer for district twelve. She won the first hunger games with Peeta Mellark. Now she gets drafted for the second hunger games
Peeta Mellark is the baker’s son. He is brave and loyal and do whatever it takes for Katniss to survive. When they were younger he saved Katniss from starvation by giving her a burned bread. Peeta has blond hair and is described as being medium height, strong and big built. Peeta get also drafted for the 74th hunger games. He confesses his feelings for Katniss during his interview. During the games he joins the career pack. With Katniss he wins the 74th hunger games. During the victory tour he and Katniss have to pretend they are in love. Peeta still likes Katniss. He spread rumors that Katniss is pregnant. After the 75th hunger games he gets captured by the capital.
Cinna is Katniss stylist for the games. He is very clever. Cinna doesn’t like the games, which is weird if you compare him with someone from the capital. Cinna is not dressed as the people of the capital. The only thing about Cinna is that he has a small line of gold eyeliner. Cinna helps Katniss with her dresses and making sure the crowd likes her. Cinna is for Katniss the most important person she met during the adventure. For the interviews he makes a dress that transforms to a mokingjay. Right before the launch of Katniss in the arena. Cinna gets killed.
Effie Trinket is district twelve escort. She is always really happy and bubbly. She is originally from the capital. She thinks that manners are really important. Effie always argues with Haymitch. Effie is very proper and hate it when people don’t proper etiquette. Effie gives Haymitch and Peeta a gift. She gives Haymitch a golden bracelet and Peeta a golden medallion with picture of Katniss loved ones.
Haymitch Abernathy is the winner of the 50th Hunger games. Now he is the mentor of the tributes of district twelve. Most of the time he is drunk. He drinks to forget what happened in the hunger games. Haymitch and Peeta are the only victors of district 12. When Haymitch get picked to participate in the games, Peeta volunteers. This means Haymitch is Katniss and Peeta’s mentor. Haymitch gives Finnick the bracelet he got from Effie to make sure that Katniss knows in the games that they are allies.
Finnick Odair is the winner of the 65th hunger games. He is the youngest victor ever. He was 14 years old when he won. He is from district 4.
