The Pro's and the An's of the story
Katniss Everdeen is the protagonist in the story. The entire story is based upon her story and life. We see her develop throughout the story A trait I would give her is brave. She shows this when she survives the horrible conditions of District 12 with her head up even with the tragedy of her father's death. She becomes the head of the family when her mother fails to do so.This also is shown when she risks her life for Peeta's at the end of the game. She attempted to lift Peeta up risking her life knowing she could fall at any moment. The last way this is shown is when she volunteered herself for her sister. She gave it all just to keep her sister from going through the same horrors she had seen on TV for years. All of these things show how the protagonist in the story is brave.
The real antagonist of the entire story is the government. They was constantly rotting away at the protagonist's life throughout the story. A trait I would give the government is corrupt. One way this is shown is the games. It is completely inconsiderate and cruel to stick kids in an arena to fight to the death. Another way this trait relates to the government is the treatment of their citizens. Most of their nation is in poverty while the other half are wealthy. The government does nothing to meet the needs of these people who are suffering on a day to day basis. The last way that this trait applies to this organization in the story is the working conditions of the citizens. The conditions of the mining that goes on in District 12 is described as horrible and dangerous. This is very true because it even lead to the death of Katniss' father. All of these things show how the government in the story is corrupt.
The Point of View
The point of view is a first person edition of Katniss Everdeen's life. This gives you a real feeling of what it was like being Katniss in the events of the story. You feel how it is to be Katniss and how she feels about every horrible and joyful thing that happens to her. This is very important to the story because without it you wouldn't be able to see the emotions of Katniss. You would be able to see her actions, but not her thoughts. Being able to feel everything she feels gives you a much better perspective of the story. Overall, being able to see the story from Katniss' point of view strongly changes how the reader sees the story.
