Continuing the discussion for their The Hunger Games book club, The Fab Life gives us the their five biggest WTF moments from the tributes’ time in the arena.
1. Peeta and the Careers! No, it’s not a name of a new Hunger Games cover band (but seriously though — let’s make that happen). Peeta has teamed up with the clique of career tributes and seems to be revealing himself as a scam artist. Not only does his alliance betray Katniss’ opinion of him, it goes against what is kosher in District 12, too. “No one from District 12 would think of doing such a thing…And Peeta has the gall to talk to me about disgrace?” (Page 161-162) Oh, why does the boy with the bread have to be so complicated? (Asked in our best Avril Lavigne voice.)
2. Katniss is now playing for the audience. We didn’t think this was Katniss’ style, but maybe it’s a savvy move. In Chapter 12 she starts blatantly performing: “I need to look one step ahead of the game.” (Page 164) The formerly camera-shy girl even shows of in an attempt to get sponsors (Page 164: “I’m glad for the cameras now. I want sponsors to see I can hunt…”), and begins using the attention to her advantage. She’s surviving, like she always has, but does it go against your original perception of Katniss? Hm…maybe that’s the whole point?
