Chapter 7


The hunger games chapter summaries1

  • Chapter 7

  • It is the first day of training. For three days, the twenty-four tributes will all practice together, then on the final afternoon they perform in private in front of the Gamemakers, the officials who run the Games. Haymitch asks Katniss and Peeta if they want to train together or separately. They decide to train together. Haymitch wants to know about their strengths. Katniss’s is obviously with a bow, and Peeta is strong and an excellent wrestler. But Peeta feels he has no chance. He says Katniss has no idea the effect she can have, and his mother even praised Katniss over him, calling her a survivor. Katniss says she couldn’t have survived without Peeta, and from Peeta’s reaction she realizes he remembers giving her the bread those years ago. Haymitch tells them not to reveal their strengths until the private session with the Gamemakers and to be sure they’re always seen together.

  • Chapter 7

  • At training, Katniss watches the other tributes. Almost all are bigger than her, though many are clearly underfed. The tributes from the wealthier districts are all healthy. Some of them, called Career Tributes, train all their lives to compete in the Games. The training area has different stations with instructors, and the Career Tributes go right to the stations with the deadliest weapons. Katniss and Peeta go to a station where they learn various knots. Next they move to the camouflage station, and Peeta picks it up quickly because he decorates the cakes in his father’s bakery. Over the next three days, they visit more stations while the Gamemakers—twenty or so men and women—watch from the stands and take notes. Peeta and Katniss stay together the whole time, making small talk. In training they also notice one of the female tributes, a small young girl from District 11 named Rue, watching them.

  • Chapter 7

  • Katniss is last to have her private session with the Gamemakers. She selects a bow from the weapons available, but it’s different than her bow at home and takes some practice before she can use it accurately. She takes a few difficult shots to impress the Gamemakers, but notices that most of them are focused on a roasted pig that’s just arrived at their table. She becomes furious, knowing her life is at stake in the Games, and fires an arrow straight toward the Gamemakers that skewers that apple in the pig’s mouth. Then she walks out.

  • Character Development - Key Points

  • Katniss: Concentrates on learning the survival skills, but does not show her skill with a bow until her private session with the Gamemakers. She is the last to be seen and they seem more interested in their lunch than her until she shoots the apple from the mouth of the pig they are about to eat.

  • Peeta: We learn what strengths he possesses that might be of use to him during the Games: He is physically strong, he’s an excellent wrestler who excels at hand-to-hand combat, and he’s also adept at camouflage. In addition, we find out that he’s been paying attention to Katniss for a long time.

  • Plot Development – Key Points

  • How inadequate Katniss feels compared to the career tributes.

  • Her skill with the bow is made clear when she dramatically shoots the apple from the pig’s mouth. This shows both her fearlessness and the confidence she has in her skill. A mistake could have injured or even killed one of the Gamemakers, but that does not stop Katniss proving her point.

  • Key moment in the Chapter.

  • Shooting the apple from the pig’s mouth.
