2. Story
Katniss Everdeen had survived the Hunger Games. But in doing so she lit the spark that could cause an uprising against the Capitol. Now the Capitol, and especially President Snow, hates her. After the Games she and Peeta, the other winner, make the Victory Tour through the 12 districts of Panem. In 11 they see the beginning of an uprising, but it is quickly knocked down. President Snow forces Katniss to continue to act as if she is madly in love with Peeta, because that was their way of surviving the arena. He threatens to kill all her loved ones if she doesn’t. He thinks this will stop the ...view middle of the document...

She is willing to give her life for Peeta in the Hunger Games. That proves her character. She is willing to do anything she can to protect her friends and family. Even die. When she goes to the Hunger Games she doesn’t expect to return. “Before my first Games, I promised Prim I would do everything I could to win, and now I’ve sworn to myself to do all I can to keep Peeta alive. I will never reverse this journey again.” (page 226)

“I’ll be dead in a day. And that’s the best-case scenario, if I’m able to eliminate the rest of the field, including myself, and get Peeta crowned as the winner of the Quarter Quell.” (page 428)

Katniss has a great influence on others. She is the Mockingjay, the symbol of rebellion. She is not really the leader, but many people listen to her. She does not change during the story, except that her influence on other people grows.

4. Time
The story is set in the future. I don’t know exactly how far in the future, but it must be at least a hundred years. These games are the third Quarter Quell, a special Hunger Games that takes place every twenty-five years. It is the 75th Hunger Games, and the Games take place every year. I don’t know how far in the future the first Games are, but it must be at least 25 years, though that is nothing but a guess. Together that makes a hundred years, though it could just as easily be 500.

In this book there isn’t really something that tells you how far in the future the story is set, but I think I remember it from the first book. However, even in this book it is clear that it is in the future, because there is much more and much better technology.

This is a very pessimistic future, because all the people in the districts are starving and terrified and every year 24 children are forced to fight to the death.

5. Place
A part of the story takes place in the Victor’s Village, the place where Katniss and her family live after she won the Games.

One third of the story, the most important part, is set in the arena.

There are several other places, like the woods and the other districts, but it is not really important for the story what those places look like, only what happens there.

The name of the country, Panem, comes from "Panem et circenses" which is Latin for "bread and games". According to a Latin poet, those are the two things a ruler has to give his people to keep them happy: food and entertainment. Suzanne Collins has used this as inspiration for the books.

6. Structure
The story is told in chronological order. There are some flashbacks, but not many. Forexample: ”On top of that, even back then, he was a skilled trapper. But it wasn’t enough...
