Suzanne Collins. We're pretty excited here at SciFiGuy.ca to finally learn what fate holds in store for Katniss, Peeta, Haymitch and the revolutionaries.To celebrate this long awaited event, I have a terrific giveaway courtesy of Scholastic Books. One reader will have the opportunity to win a unique fleece throw blanket embroidered with the Mockingjay emblem. All you have to do to enter is tell us about your favourite character, or if you haven't read the books yet, tell us how you plan to keep warm if you win the blanket. The giveaway is open until August 18 (Midnight EST) and is open to US and Canadian residents. My character? I love that tough old coot Haymitch. Without him, Katniss and Peeta would not have survived as long as they have.
- Only living tribute from District 12
- A survivor from the 50th Hunger Games
- Haymitch was sixteen at the time of his games
- He's haunted by the death of his fellow tribute
- Trains and mentors each year's tributes
- Helps Katniss and Peeta to win the 74th and 75th games
- Was originally selected as tribute for the 75th games, but Peeta volunteered to replace him
- Possible member of the rebellion
"...you've got about as much charm as a dead slug..."
"You and a syringe against the Capitol? See, this is why no one lets you make the plans."
