The Hunger Games Recap: Chapters 1 - 3

Chapter 1
Basically, chapter 1 is just background about Panem, showing life in District 12, and introducing the Hunger Games. Katniss' sister Primrose gets called to be the female tribute, and the chapter ends.

Chapter 2
Katniss immediately volunteers to take Prim's place, then Peeta is chosen as the male tribute. Katniss' past with Peeta is revealed; he saved her life once when they were children.

Chapter 3
They are immediately taken to say their final goodbyes. Katniss is visited by her mother and Prim, Peeta's father (who gives her cookies - yum), the mayor's daughter Madge (who gives her a mockingjay pin), and finally Gale. 
Then, they get on the train and we get to know Effie Trinket. She's shallow, but an interesting character. In my head, I picture her looking like Kristin Chenoweth:

It is also told that Haymitch is going to be their sponsor. Obviously neither Katniss or Peeta are happy about this. Then Haymitch vomits everywhere. Classy!

Anyone agree with my Chenoweth choice? Got anything to say or add? Leave a comment!


  1. You know I love Kristin Chenoweth! I could see her doing something like Effie. High class, yet shallow as a kiddie pool. Good choice! ;)

  2. All you have to do is watch her in Pushing Daisies, and you KNOW it's a perfect match.
