Hunger Games was written by Suzanne Collins who created the character of Katniss Everdeen, she wrote
Katniss as a very talented girl whose skills were very unique and useful. Some of the skills Katniss used to help her get out of the arena alive were archery, survival, and role-play.

Word is the Capitol’s furious about you showing them up in the arena. The one thing they can’t stand is being laughed at and they’re the joke of Panem. Your only defence can be you were so madly in love you weren’t responsible for you actions”(Collins 357).
Katniss even played this role to perfection. Some readers of the novel The Hunger Games even started to believe Katniss’ love was true. “But his smile is the same whether in mud or in the Capitol and when I see it, I take about three steps and fling myself into his arms. He rights himself almost losing his balance.

During the games their act helped them get sponsors and after the games it helped them stay out of trouble with the Capitol. Throughout Katniss’ and Peeta’s whole experience, the citizens of Panem really believe that Katniss and Peeta are star-crossed lovers because of their amazing role play skills.
In conclusion Katniss uses lots of excellent skills to help her win the Hunger Games, such as archery, survival and role-play. Suzanne Collins who wrote The Hunger Games made Katniss a very intelligent girl who has very unique and useful
