The moment Prim’s name is chosen from the reaping bowl, Katniss becomes the spectacle since she decides to volunteer for the Hunger Games to save her little sister. It’s unheard of to have someone from District 12 volunteering for the Hunger Games. “But in District 12, where the word tribute is pretty much synonymous with the corpse, volunteers are all but extinct.” (pg. 22) Since it is uncommon, she already has eyes on her but Katniss is very aware that she’s under surveillance once she walks onto the stage and cameras will be on her from that moment. “With every camera gleefully trained on him, I have just enough time to release the small, choked sound in my throat and compose myself.” (pg. 25) All this attention affects Katniss behavior
Katniss is very poor which makes training for the Hunger Games very difficult for her. Unlike her opponents in other districts who train their whole lives for the Games. However, overall she proves to the city and district that she is a tragic hero through her self-sacrifice that led to victory.

Loyalty what does it mean? According to Webster's online dictionary loyalty means to form a strong alliance and to have a strong feeling of support. What about friendship? Friendship means to have a strong and mutual bonding relationship. In the book The Hunger Games,Peeta and Katniss had both friendship and loyalty towards each other.

In the first installment of the Hunger Games series we are greeted to the character Katniss Everdeen. Katniss and her family reside in the lowly District 12, the coal mining district, where the felling of death and despair is a guarantee. After the death of her father in a coal mining accident Katniss must do whatever she must in order to ensure the survival of her family and herself. Directed by Gary Ross the film was both a critical and financial success.
Is it possible for love to blind? Can love be harmful? In The Hunger Games the main character, Katniss, volunteers to save her sister from an almost certain death. She is forced to enter an arena and must kill to survive. However, while she is in the arena she builds relationships with many characters and she does her best to save the people she loves. The overarching theme of Suzanne Collins’ novel, The Hunger Games, is that love can make people forget their basic survival instincts as shown by Katniss’ willingness to put herself in peril to save her loved ones such as Primrose Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, and the girl from district eleven Rue.
Katniss had to be responsible for keeping her family and friends safe and alive, but she also had to take care of herself. In chapter eleven the Hunger Games had began and Katniss left behind the bow that was supposed to “belong to her”. She knew that there was no way she could have survived without it, but she also knew that it was her fault and she had to survive without it. In Chapter 13 Katniss was being “chased” by a fire and fire balls were being thrown at her. She got severely burned and couldn’t do much at all so she had to fix her own leg because there was no one else to help her. In chapter eighteen Katniss tells her seIf “‘Now you have to sit up, Katniss. Now you have to drink water, Katniss.’” and “‘Now you have to sort the packs, Katniss.’” If she had not told herself what to do she would have most likely died. If Katniss wasn’t responsible for herself and her actions she most likely wouldn’t have won the Hunger
The theme of the dystopian novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is survival. Katniss Everdeen is the epitome of this theme; her disposition luckily possesses all of the attributes needed to survive. Katniss displays the theme of survival because she is resourceful, has integrity, and has perseverance.
Through everything the ruthless government throws at her, she fights off because through her actions she has proven to be the face of hope for all to look up to. Katniss has embodied the role of a leader for a long time . "Her grit, roughness and decency, serve as a rebuke to the Capitol... Katniss personalizes -- humanizes -- the fight. That humanity is crucial to her evolution as a classic charismatic revolutionary hero. She 's the one who embodies, articulates and justifies the battle" (Dargis 2). Indeed this statement makes a major point that Katniss humanizes the violence set out to destroy her, and it is her personality and nature that prove her to be an able body to look up to for hope. Another embodiment of hope she holds is her wise instincts. “Who is continually figuring out how to outwit her oppressor and secure her family’s survival” (Skinner 3). Katniss has always held a keen insight into how the minds of the leaders in the Capital work, which has lead her to develop fierce instincts; another trait exemplified in a hero. Not only does Katniss use her emotion to create hope she uses her physical capability as well. "From the time of her father 's death in a coal mine explosion, Katniss works to fight this injustice done to her family" (Hansen 1). It is true that Katniss fights for injustice in her family, but another outstanding characteristic is that
rebellion, who joins her friends and allies to lead a revolution against the Capitol and to
An unknown person once said, “When we read books, we don’t fall in love with the character’s appearances. We fall in love with their thoughts, their words, and their actions. We fall in love with their souls.” In the dystopian novel, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, this is exactly what happens, Katniss moves the readers by having such characteristic and skills to be able to survive. Katniss’s characteristics, of being caring, having a determined personality, and her intelligence in survival skills, all help support the theme of Katniss being able to survive.

The hunger games is an adventure and science fiction novel by the American writer Suzanne Collins. This is the trilogy movie, so the first one is the hunger games, next the hunger games catching fire and the last is the hunger games mocking jay. This novel was adapted to the movie in 2012 and directed by Gary Ross and co-written by Suzanne Collins herself. Point of view from this movie was from Katniss Everdeen who lives in Panem, North America. On the other hand, there is Capitol who has political control in the nation of panem. The story starts when each district must offer a male and female between the ages of 12-18 at a public reaping as a penance for their uprising. The tributes which are male and female shall be delivered to the Capitol and then transferred to a public arena where they will fight with other district until a lone victor remains. This tradition called the hunger games. The story centers was coming from poor district 12 where Katniss and Peeta as their tributes. Actually, Katniss is not chosen as tribute but she sacrifices herself as a tribute to replace her sister Prim. The plot also explains love triangle between Katniss, Peeta and Gale. Katniss as a central role in this movie looks strong and convincing with a bow and arrow.
Suzanne Colin’s, intense Hunger Games story teaches and shows many life lessons. In this story, Katniss volunteers for her sister, Prim’s spot in the Hunger games. A game where the last person alive wins. One woman and one male from 12 districts, get picked, along with 22 other tributes. Katniss has history with the male tribute, Peeta. Everyone in District 12 learn many lessons, when Katniss goes into the games. My claim for this story is that symbols help the readers understand the theme. Symbols such as mockingjay pin, dandelions, and Peeta’s bread. The theme for this story is that the choices you make define you.
