The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
It has been six months since Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the Seventy-fourth Hunger Games, an annual event in which each district in Panem sends one female and one male tribute to fight to the death in a televised competition for food and money. Though only one tribute can win, a change in the rules allowed Peeta and Katniss to both win. Their victory was partly secured because of Peeta's declaration of love for Katniss before the Games. In the Hunger Games, after Peeta and Katniss were the only ones alive, it was announced that the change in rules had been revoked, and there could only be one victor. Instead of killing Peeta, Katniss proposed they eat poisonous berries to kill themselves so that the Capitol would not have any victors.
The Hunger Games is a series of young adult dystopian novels written by American novelist Suzanne Collins. The novels have all been developed into films starring Jennifer Lawrence , with the film adaptation of Mockingjay split into two parts. The first two books in the series were both New York Times best sellers , and Mockingjay topped all US bestseller lists upon its release. The Hunger Games universe is a dystopia set in Panem , a North American country consisting of the wealthy Capitol and 12 districts in varying states of poverty. Every year, children from the districts are selected via lottery to participate in a compulsory televised battle royale death match called The Hunger Games.
He also tells Katniss he is aware of the kiss she shared with Gale in the woods, implying that the Capitol knows they illegally venture into the woods to hunt. Snow acknowledges that Katniss doesn't know how she feels about Peeta or Gale, but is not in love with Peeta as Panem believes. Katniss decides the only person she can tell about Snow's threats is Haymitch, her and Peeta's drunken mentor from District 12 who also won the Games years ago. Though she and Haymitch argue and rarely get along, she trusts him. Haymitch tells her that in order to truly appease Snow and Panem, she and Peeta will have to get married. As she goes to sleep that night, Katniss realizes there are potentially worse husbands than Peeta and ponders what their future together will be like.
