Hunger Games Response

Chapters twenty-one and twenty-two are contradictions. Chapter 21 is about the feast. Luckily, Katniss survived. Foxface was the first one to get her pack. She was sneaky as per usual; she hid in the cornucopia. She snuck up on the table and just snatched up her pack. It was smart, and she didn't have to fight anyone. Katniss decides to go next, but is ambushed by Clove. Katniss tries to take her out, but Clove threw a knife to her head. Clove was just about to finish Katniss off, but Thresh saves her. Thresh thinks that Clove killed Rue, and before Clove can tell the truth, Thresh makes a huge dent in her head with a rock. While Katniss tries to figure out what has just happened, Thresh takes Cato's bag and runs off into the woods. Instead of going after Katniss, Cato takes off after Thresh. Katniss finally gets back to Peeta and finds medicine in her bag (duh).

Chapter 22 is really played up. The romance between Katniss and Peeta is heated up. They talk about the first time that Peeta sees Katniss, and his love for her. Haymitch sends them a feast of stew, rolls, fruit, and cheese. The more romance that they show to each other, the more they get. They really play off the Capitol's emotions. Also, Thresh has died.

Chapter 21 is really intense. There's fighting and killing and almost everything. It's really exciting, while chapter 22 is really slow. It's like coming off a sugar high. I really liked both chapters, but 21 was my favorite, because things really moved along, and it was exciting. I know now that there are only about four tributes left. Katniss, Peeta, Foxface, and Cato. I wonder who's going to die next......
