The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is coming out on Friday, and people won’t stop talking about it—hardly surprising given the reaction to the books and first film. The series’ heroine, Katniss Everdeen, has become a household name, along with Jennifer Lawrence for her portrayal of the tribute. Katniss is strong-willed, independent, resourceful and kind. That much is obvious from the very beginning of the story as she cares for and protects her younger sister, Prim. And later, as she looks after other tributes in The Arena. I have no idea what happens next in the series, but at the very least, it will be entertaining to watch.

Hey you know that crazy spinster who wears the same clothes every day? That’s actually Miss Havisham from Great Expectations and it’s her wedding dress. Once jilted and swindled out of her fortune by the man she loved, she grew into a bitter old woman. She raised Estella to be distrustful of men and to manipulate them. When Pip, the protaginist, came into her midst, she had Estella test her tricks on him. She also only wore one shoe, which I probably could’ve photoshopped above but IDGAF.

Phoebe Caulfield is one of the more underappreciated characters in literature. Although Catcher in the Rye focuses on the exploits and development of Holden, much of his character is based on his relationship with his younger sister. In fact, his entire fantasy about catching children “in the rye” is centered around his desire to protect her and childlike innocence in general. Phoebe, when contrasted with her older brother, is far more mature than he and sees him as an idealistic and misguided young adult. Eventually, Holden learns from her judgement of him as he reluctantly grapples with adulthood. They’re both well-born kids of Manhattan, but the strike me as cooler than your average Dalton or Spence student. Phoebe definitely would’ve grown up to run shit, and been more into The Bell Jar than Gossip Girl. In conclusion, the Caulfields dominate.
