Chapter 20: The Feast
Q1. I got this picture from a hunger games website.If I was in the Hunger Games, fighting for my life, I would have attended the feast. The feast played a very important role in the outcome of the book, and things that happened in the past throughout the Hunger Games began to shine. Katniss risked her life to save Peeta’s. I was so thankful that Thresh saved Katniss’s life, he must have really loved Rue. I know Katniss did. Seeing the killing at the feast and why some people were killing the tributes. Like Thresh killed Clove because he thought she killed Rue. Even though our backpack was small, it probably held one of the most important items there. The shot of medicine saved Peetas life and healed his cut almost instantly. Amazing. If Katniss hadn’t of gone to the feast Peeta would have died and probably all of the tributes would have stayed alive. She saved his life! Page 285-286, “I promised Cato if he let me have you, I’d give the audience a good show...Forget it District twelve. We’re going to kill you. Just like we did your pathetic little ally...What was her name? The one who hopped around the trees? Rue? Well first Rue, then you, and then I think we’ll just let nature take care of lover boy. How does that sound? Now where to start?”
Chapter 21: Thresh saved her life
Q2. Thank god for Thresh. He saved Katniss’s life, just because of her reaction to Rue dying. I think it meant a lot to Katniss, in more than one way. One way is that she’s still alive, then the other is that I think Rue meant a lot to Katniss. Rue reminded Katniss of Prim, I think thats why she was so special to her. I think that night after the feast when the anthem played Katniss didn’t expect to see anyone, but Thresh’s picture showed up. I know Katniss felt like crying, but wanted to stay strong for the cameras. If Katniss had showed weakness she would loose sponsors and stop getting presents. Thresh showed respect and kindness to Katniss, just to be killed by Cato the next day. Page 288, “Just this one time, I let you go. For the little girl. You and me, we’re even then. You understand?”I think Rue and Thresh had a special relationship. They were from the same district, and both know what its like to suffer, maybe if they won they would have been rich. I thought that Thresh was like Rue’s big brother. Katniss showed respect to the district and Thresh showed respect to Katniss. They’re even now.
Chapter 22: FOOD!
I got this picture from a hollywood blog website.I think Haymitch sent Katniss and Peeta a care package to show them they could make it through the games. It was sort of a reminder of what was waiting for them when they got back. Also Haymitch was probably telling them that water was around them and the medicine was at the cornucopia. This gave both Kaniss and Peeta the extra push and energy they needed to win the games. Throughout the end of the games I dont think Katniss and Peeta would have survived without the sponsors and without each other. In the end it was a smart idea to give Katniss and Peeta food rather then water and medicine.
Chapter 23: On and Off camera:
I think on camera Peeta and Katniss sort of put on act, but maybe some of their relationship is real. Both off them really played it up once the announcement was made that both tributes from the same district can win. They were really on camera all the time so they would kiss and be all lovey-dovey. When the moment came where Katniss and Peeta were off camera Peeta found out she was faking, Peeta was broken hearted. Katniss acted strong, but on the inside I think she actually loves Peeta. I think the one thing separating Katniss from fully loving Peeta was Gale. Katniss loves Gale and Peeta. She needs to just choose one. Page 372, “..So, what you’re saying is, these last few days and then I guess, back in the arena...that was just some kind of strategy you two worked out? Katniss? He drops my hand and I take a step as if to catch my balance. It was all for the games, the way you acted. he said. Aready the boy with the bread is slipping away from me.”
Chapter 24: Foxface...
I got this picture from a blog website. I really don’t think Peeta will feel bad for killing foxface. It might have came as a surprise for him, but its one step closer to being home, in district twelve. Peeta also had no idea that those berries were night lock, or in that case could kill you in seconds. It is a good thing Peeta hadn’t snacked while Katniss was hunting or he could be dead. Even though Peeta’s still alive he scared Katniss half to death when she heard the cannon and came back to find him missing. That right there only proves her love for him. Peeta is sweet and sensitive and of course...romantic. This scared Peeta and probably taught him a lesson to be more careful. Page 320, “It takes a while to explain the situation to Peeta. How Foxface stole the food from the supply pile before I blew it up, how she tried to take enough to stay alive, but not enough that anyone would it, how she wouldn’t question the berries we were preparing to eat ourselves.”
Chapter 25: The Feast:
I got this picture from the same website as the one above. I think the feast changed the outcome of the game a lot, especially when it came to Rue’s death. Thresh must have really loved her and wanted to get her threw the games. Thresh killed Clove because she said that she killed Rue. Thresh almost killed Katniss but let her go this time because she killed the boy who killed Rue, and because she buried Rue in flowers to show her respect for the district. The consequences that Thresh faced after the feast wasn’t what I expected though. If the feast hadn’t of happened I dont think that Katniss and Peeta would have won. Clove would have been alive and eventually Clove and Cato would have killed Peeta and Katniss. Maybe Thresh would’ve won.
Chapter 26: Suicide?
I think the only reason that Katniss and Peet BOTH tried to commit suicide, was because they were in love. Now, Katnisss says that she was faking it, but if she didn’t love Peeta she would have killed him right then and there when she had the chance. Katniss said on page 343, “Your not leaving me here alone.. Because if he dies I’ll never go home, not really. I’ll spend the rest of my life in this arena trying to think my way out of it.” If Katniss had killed him she would have gone insane and killed herself. The logic behind the berries is so they both die, and neither one of them has to deal with the pain of losing one another. Katniss does love Peeta...and there is no way you will convince me or any of my friends that she doesn’t. Katniss is in denial.
Chapter 27: Relationships are complicated...
I got this from another blogger page. I think, now that Katniss broke Peetas heart, that Katniss and Peeta wont even really talk. They might pass by each other and wave, but its just awkward now. We all know that Katniss is in love with Peeta but Gale is the thing getting in the way, so now Katniss has to pick..instead of making the readers think about whos hotter and more romantic. Now that the cameras are off I was hoping that they would be together, but they will not have the same love and connection that they did in the arena and in the capital. ITS SOOOO SAD!! They need to be together. Especially because now they will live in Victors village and be right across the lane from each other. I hope they will repair there love for each other and get over the act.
Thoughts- As you can probably see, my thoughts and defiantly feelings are mentioned above. :)
Except I just have to say since this is our last blog on chapters...
I LOVE PEETA MELLARK!!!!!!!!! :) ;)
