Catching Fire (Part 1)

We volunteer you as tribute to watch this video analysis of Katniss in the second book of the Hunger Games series. After the berry suicide attempt that went down at the end of the first book, readers were left questioning Katniss’s motivations. Is she just selfish and craving hero-worship from all of Panem? Is she acting out of romantic interest for Peeta? Is she just a really good friend/sister who is trying to protect everyone else? Is she deliberately trying to provoke the Capitol and start a political revolution? We’ll let you decide for yourselves, but we think we can all agree that she is a boss with a bow and arrow.
