ďIím feeling nauseous and so desperately hoping that itís not me, that itís not me, that itís not me. Effie Trinket crosses back to the podium, smoothes the slip of paper, and reads out the name in a clear voice and itís not me. Itís Primrose Everdeen.Ē
At the beginning of The Hunger Games, Katniss and her
sister Prim are entered in what they call a reaping to the Hunger Games.
Katniss goes into the games with Peeta Mellark. In the middle someoneís
voice booms through the speakers when eight tributes are left saying
that two people can win if they are from the same district. So
immediately Katniss calls Peetaís name because they were separated early
and because they are from the same district. In the end, when there are
three tributes left, the rule that two tributes can win is lifted. So
Katniss kills Cato, and itís just Katniss and Peeta, so Katniss gives
Peeta some poisonous berries and gives herself some and just when they
are about to eat them a voice says that two tributes can win again so
Peeta and Katniss win.
