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. One of the largest reasons for Katniss’s survival would be her caring personality and how it is able to affect those around her.

During one of the morning sessions, she notices Winston exerting minimal effort during stretching. The instructress communicates specifically with Winston through the screen and after exorbitant amounts of encouragement, “Winston, with a violent lunge, succeeded in touching his toes with his knees unbent, for the first time in several years”(37). Winston recognizes the problems with the world in which he lives; unlike others, he can remember the past and knows that the Party alters history so that they can remain in power. However, even he ultimately recognizes that going against the Party will result in punishment. Therefore, although the exercises hurt Winston, the combination of the lady’s relentless focus along with the idea that the rest of the population also participates in the stretching overpowers Winston’s innate resistance to the Party.
In the novel Life of Pi, by Martel Yann, he uses a juxtaposition to show Pi’s ambivalence: “It’s not right that gentleness meet horror. Better that you had died right away" (139).

Yet despite his constant willingness to help others due to his generosity, sympathetic, and kind-hearted nature, the tribe often turns on him as a scapegoat when they become overcome by their emotions. This leads to Simon being slowly outcasted by the group, as his observations on the nature of the beast confuse and frustrate them. As such, he finds himself laughed at and mocked to shame.
“I volunteer as tribute!” (Collins 22). When Katniss realized that it was Prim that was called she immediately said that. Katniss loves Prim so much that she put herself in danger just to save her.
