However, even with this fatal flaw, Katniss has the strong character of doing whatever she needs to survive. I am sure this a feeling we can all relate to as people take on more jobs to make ends meet, or try to take on less loans to make it debt free out of college. This can also be applied to food as more and more money in this economy is getting you less food, even with bargain hunting, coupons, and farmers markets. This is also apt by all the non-profit organizations trying to feed America. I even see this where I live which to me seems to be a combination of District 11 and 12 from the book. We have a big emphasis on agriculture and fresh produce while still providing produce to a majority of CA and the world. I think we have some of District 12 as their are homeless people on the street, a high unemployment rate and people going hungry. I don’t know whether I should call this reality or the side effects of a recession that has been going on for years. (spoiler alert)
But negative real events aside, horrible things that happen in the book such as Katniss rivals turning into Mutts (which is never explained) , her murdering one guy to survive and trying to play chicken with game makers until the very end, she does this with the end goal to survive and make it to her sister Primm who she loves more than life itself. Even though Peeta and her survive,the end is weird though with capital members thinking that she was mocking them through her fake out of having her and Peeta kill themselves with the deadly berries, even if this was not her intention. I might not have more to say on their totalitarian government until I have read the other books. All it makes me question is how much Katniss has in her life? and how much we have in our own lives?
