‘It’s my new best friend, Claudius Templesmith, and as I expected, he’s inviting us to feast...'
'...Well, we’re not hungry and I actually wave his offer away in indifference when he says, “Now hold on. Some of you may already be declining my invitation. But this is no ordinary feast. Each of you needs something desperately.” I do need something desperately. Something to heal Peeta’s leg. “Each of you will find that something in a backpack, marked with your district number, at the Cornucopia at dawn. Think hard about refusing to show up. For some of you, this will be your last chance,” says Claudius’ ~Pages 273-274 I definitely would have showed up to the feast if I were Katniss! Peeta and her are really close and he was dieing slowly and Katniss loves him even if she deny’s it and she has feelings for Gale! She needed what was in the bag, and like Claudius said it would be her last chance. I would have done anything to keep my companion alive especially if I loved him the way Katniss loves Peeta.
‘Conflicting emotions cross Thresh’s face. He lowers the rock and points at me, almost accusingly. “Just this one time, I’ll let you go. For the little girl. You and me, we’re even then. No more owed. You understand?”’ ~Page 288
I think that Thresh saved Katniss because he felt that he owed her that much for helping Rue. I think that he felt like the same way about Rue the way Katniss did, sort of. He cared for her and was angry that someone so young and full of life had to participate in the games. Thresh wasn’t a mean person, he was nice and kind I think that that if Katniss and Peeta didn’t win it should have been Thresh and Rue. They were both really nice and could have had a future...well they wouldn’t be heartless like most people who grow up in the lower districts. People who grow up in difficult situations tend to look after themselves and distance themselves from other and stop caring, they’re like stone walls. He talked like he was her older brother on pages 287 and 288. Picture of Rue and Thresh you can see how Thresh feels.
‘Every cell in my body wants me to dig into the stew and cram it, handful by handful into my mouth. But Peeta’s voice stops me.’ ~Page 303
I think that they needed the food more, in chapter 23 it talks about how their stomaches cramp and how they want to dig in but can’t because they would just throw it all back up. Neither of them were at their full strength so the stew helped them get strength back. They didn’t need medicine and they were all set on water, I think. They we wounded and needed strength. Katniss just got the backpack for Peeta and probably he need food to get into him. They were practically starving. The chapters talked about how hungry they were not how they were thirsty or need medicine. They were both fine, except for Katniss’s head wound, but even thats not bad enough to need medicine. The food was much more needed! Katniss was wounded so they couldn’t get game and it rained for so long and so hard, that even if she was at her full strength she couldn’t go out.
‘I feel like I’m eleven again, tethered not to the safety of the fence but to Peeta, allowing myself twenty, maybe thirty yards of hunting space.’ Page 316
Katniss and Peeta’s real relationship on and off the camera is complicated! But...they love each other! In this chapter it showed a lot of Katniss and Peeta’s feelings toward each other! There is no way that Peeta is faking it and Katniss likes him so much but she is just in denial because they are new feelings to her and she likes Gale to. In the beginning Katniss wasn’t sure about Peeta and now... SHE LOVES HIM! Peeta has always loved her like on page 304 and before Peeta talked about Katniss was the only girl that left an impression on him. They are a beautiful couple... Anyway they both have such an affection for each other that it practically glow/sparkles of them. She looks after him and for Peeta just has a plain out affection for her. Katniss likes him because she... YOU, she, CAN’T JUST PRETEND TO LIKE SOMEONE THE WAY SHE LIKES PEETA! This picture is from a review on the movie and book!
“And she was very clever, Peeta. Well, she was. Until you out foxed her.” “Not on purpose. Doesn’t seem fair somehow. I mean, we would have been both dead, too, if she hadn’t eaten the berries first....”’ Page 320I think that Peeta felt a little bad but that he felt okay after Katniss told him that he did what he had to do and that it brought them closer to home. Peeta is very caring and in the games it sort of gets in his away. He doesn’t like killing people unless they hurt him or Katniss or if they’re really cruel, but even then I am sure he would feel bad.
He is like a big teddy bear! He might be strong and look like a grizzly bear but he way softer than that! He is very loving gets emotionally involved in everything...not always a good thing, but whatever!
... Don’t you LOVE my picture! I think that Peeta lets the loss of a life wear on him to much, if he didn’t kill her that way she would probably win, or at least come really close. Her nickname, Foxface, says it all...she is REALLY clever!
‘My head snaps from side to side as I examine the pack, taking in the various sizes and colors. ... “It’s them. It’s all of them. The others. Rue and Foxface and...all of the other tributes,” I choke out...’ Page 334
Mutations!!! NOOOOOO! Poor people, how can the capital send the bodies back to their families if they’re DOGS!!!!! I think that it was totally unfair! The tributes died you shouldn’t resurrect them as poor dog beasts! And them dying was hard enough on Peeta and Katniss! How could you kill people and use them to kill other people!? I wonder if they have any memories that would be terrible! Could you imagine doing something you knew was wrong and having no control over it? Katniss talks about how it would be terrible if they could think, on page 334. I think it wasn’t fair to change them, it wasn’t fair for the dead tributes and Peeta, Katniss and Cato. Katniss got pretty upset seeing the tributes being used in the Gamemakers twisted games, and seeing Rue. The Gamemakers are so cruel how could you be so sadistic?!
‘“Stop! Stop! Ladies and gentleman, I am pleased to present the victors of the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark! I give you___ the tributes of District Twelve!”
I think that it was their only choice. They would have been miserable without each other and either killed themselves or lived in pain and sorrow for what they did. They never would forgave them self. How could you kill someone that you are in love with AND THEY ARE IN LOVE! I think that it is just preposterous that Claudius said that they could both win if they were from the same district and then changed it just to see them kill each other! It was terrible! I was surprised that Katniss would do that, eat the berries, I think she was thinking of her and Peeta not her and her family waiting for her. Peeta and Katniss are to close to have killed the other.
Page 372 and 373 ‘It was all for the Games,” Peeta says. “How you acted.” “Not all of it,” I say, tightly holding my flowers.’ ~page 372
I don’t know how Katniss and Peeta will continue their relationship ounce the cameras are off. Now that they are going back to District Twelve I think it is going to be harder for Katniss to realize her feelings. She likes both Gale and Peeta and now she has to choose. She can’t pretend anymore. They like each other, there is more denying it! I think that it will continue. Peeta and Katniss like each other and Katniss likes Gale but I think they are going to have similar relationship until she chooses... maybe sort of like Bella being torn between Edward and Jacob except not that simple...only The Hunger Games is BETTER!!!!! Katniss is just making things worse going back to District Twelve thinking that it will help her decide her feelings for Peeta and Gale.
I think it is going to make it more difficult for her. She likes Peeta on and off camera but she refuses to see that she likes him, thinking that she was just pretending. I think that when Haymitch tells Katniss good work and Peeta overhears and she tries to explain to him whats going on her reaction to his reactions shows her feelings for him. She is struggling to realize she likes Peeta, and has for awhile. In away her relationship will continue with him but with a different twist.
