Increasingly threatened by Katniss' popularity among the starving masses, Snow eventually decides to make the 75th Annual Hunger Games a unique one -- with the 24 Tributes selected among the living victors. It's great that the lines were shorter and that you got to be around other fans anyway, even with the decreased camaraderie. Armed guards are everywhere, crimes tolerated for years are suddenly to be punished to the full extent of the law, and the Hob is burned down.
While it worked out well, I did miss the camaraderie. Wiress is key to Katniss figuring out the arena is a large clock, with the attacks coming at specific times to specific sections. Katniss already bent the rules once in the last Games. Parents need to know that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the second installment in the trilogy. Katniss and Peeta manage to survive the first wave of killings, and hide inside the forrest. I felt for Johanna, noting the emotion under her anger, but more than anything, I wanted to cheer her on! Lightning in the first clockwise wedge between 12 and 1 starting at midnight, blood rain from 1 to 2, fog in 2 to 3, etc. They plan to reach District 13, hoping the Capitol's story that it was completely destroyed during the first rebellion is not true, and that its remaining residents survive in underground shelters.
Do you think the book and the movie are appropriate for different age-groups? In other words, the ending of this middle book in the Hunger Games trilogy has totally done its job: it has gotten us all fired up for Mockingjay. She tells Haymitch about the threat and he explains the only way to keep everyone safe is for her and Peeta to marry.

At the beginning of the movie, we see Katniss, Peeta, and Haymitch getting prepared for a tour of the 12 districts. Beetee the very intelligent tribute pointed out the tiny, barely visible square that denotes the existence of a force field.

Katniss accepts, but Snow is dissatisfied with her overall performance, leaving her fearing for her loved ones. Lauren, I can't be even more agree with you! Rather, Haymitch mentions it to Katniss and Peeta while they are in the Capitol preparing for the Games. Johanna attacks Katniss, which makes Katniss think everyone has turned on her and Peeta. However, they see Gale being whipped in the square by , the brutal new Head Peacekeeper.
I found myself teary-eyed a lot in the beginning of the film as Katniss and Peeta go on their victory tour, desperate to prove to President Snow that they do not want riots in the districts. I've also heard that the secondary characters were well-developed, and I'm so excited to see Johanna come to life on screen. An eBook version was also published on June 3, 2010. Peeta knows Johanna's trying to intimidate them, but maybe there's a method to her madness. The Games are held in an arena which has land strips separated by water.
The spinning causes the team to break apart. When she mentions the uprising, however, he says he wants to stay and fight. Before entering the arena, as the pedestal rises, Katniss witnesses Thread and his men entering the room and beating Cinna to death, in punishment over his controversial dress design for Katniss. And maybe he wants to let her persuade him. Although the is extremely popular with tweens and even younger elementary-school readers, the movie may be too dark and violent for even mature tween readers. Their first stop is District 11.
As a reader, I felt excited and even hopeful: could it be that this series and its characters were actually going somewhere? Finnick saves Peeta in the fight. Finnick takes Mags and Katniss helps Peeta but they soon have to swap. Katniss wakes her friends and they run, but the chemical fog damages their nerves. It was also published as an on the same day. Everyone else salutes Katniss, using the same gesture that she used to say farewell to Rue.
Not to mention primed for part three. They find that the arena is a dome protected by electrical orcefields; Peeta nearly dies after hitting the field, but is resussitated by Finnick. His strategy is to taint Katniss' public image, in an attempt to destroy her as symbol for the uprising. But Snow's plans have only just begun, and when the 75th annual Games begins, Katniss's life will change for ever. They were taken by the Capitol. People drink at Capitol parties, and one Capitol partier offers Peeta a drink that will make him vomit so he can keep eating. Katniss learns that most of the districts are now in full-scale revolt.
Her enemy is the Capitol, not the other victors. Katniss learns of Beetee's plan to harness lightning in order to electrocute the two surviving Careers from District 2. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger. Katniss wants to see the tape of Haymitch's victory. How is President Snow a totalitarian ruler? Peeta watches tapes of the victors they will be competing against. In the book, this is alluded to when Katniss notices the scent on his breath when he visits her house in the beginning. When Katniss awakens later in the hovercraft, she hears voices, grabs a syringe as a weapon and goes to investigate.
There are two reasons for this comparison. He announces Panem's third Quarter Quell, a version of the Hunger Games every 25 years that contains a special provision: all tributes are selected from the existing pool of victors. As expected, Peeta volunteers for Haymitch and he and Katniss head to the Capitol again - this time without getting to say goodbye to their families.

Like Katniss, the other tributes are protecting Peeta.
