THGReadAThon Discussion Questions: Part 1 "The Tributes"

Have you stop by on our kick-off guest post? I'm telling you it's really awesome, so do drop by. OK friends, here's our first leg of discussion questions for our month-long THGReadAThon.

1. Imagine one day waking up and finding yourself in Panem. What district would you be in and why? To give you an idea, here’s the list of the 12 districts and their designated jobs.
    • District 1: Luxury
    • District 2: Masonry
    • District 3: Technology
    • District 4: Fishing
    • District 5: Power
    • District 6: Transportation
    • District 7: Lumber
    • District 8: Textiles
    • District 9: Grain
    • District 10: Livestock
    • District 11: Agriculture
    • District 12: Mining
2. The Reaping Day was one of the dreaded days by District 12. If you were picked that day as one of the tributes, what would be your initial reaction?

3. You are a tribute and your mentor is planning the best strategy for you to win. What do you think will be your best selling attribute and/or skill?

4. You were not picked but your sister/father/mother was, would you sacrifice yourself for them a la Katniss or would you keep your ground a la Peeta’s brothers?

5. Time for the first impression segment. What is the first thing that came into mind when you think of:
    1. Katniss Everdeen
    2. Peeta Mellark
    3. Gale Hawthorne
    4. Cinna
    5. Haymitch Abernathy
    6. Effie Trinket
    7. Primrose Everdeen
    8. Caesar Flickerman
    9. Rue
6. Look up. Who is the character that leaps out to you the most?  Why?

7. Do you think Peeta ever thought of winning The Hunger Games even if it means killing Katniss in the process? Why or why not?

8. (Refer to p. 40)  Fill in the blanks: The Peacekeepers are back too soon and Gale asks for more time, but they’re taking him away and I start to panic. “Don’t let them starve!” I cry out, clinging to his hand.

“I won’t! You know I won’t! Katniss, remember I ______” he say, and they yank us apart and slam the door and I’ll never know what it was he wanted me to remember.

9. Most memorable/favorite scene in Part I “The Tribute”?

10. I know it’s too early to say, but if there was something you want to know more about or you would want to be more elaborated, what would it be and why?

    1. This is my first read-a-thon so I am going to ask a newbie question: do we answer all of the questions or pick one or more than one?


      1. Oh hi, Shanan! :D Answering everything is the best way to go with this. But it's still really up to you. :)

      2. Thanks. :) I just wanted to make sure that I did it right. :)

    2. I wanna join this but I don't have a decent enough blog so I'll just look forward to everyone else's post. Hehe.
