Katniss Everdeen, the protagonist in The Hunger Games, while describing the electrified fences, discusses the events surrounding her father's death in chapter one (page five). Even five years after her father's death, Katniss still awakes from dreams/nightmares screaming because of the traumatising memory of her father's death.
Katniss "was eleven then," as she recalls her father's death. While out hunting, she is recalling the fact that her father was "blown to bits in a mine explosion" at the same time as she reveals to readers who she learned to hunt from. Katniss goes on to provide even more disturbing information which surrounded her father's death when she states that "there was nothing even to bury."
