The author provided both a compelling storyline and a fulfilling resolution to the many difficulties faced throughout this series. The 380 pages before that, however, deserve nothing. In some cases, time goes on and I end up appreciating a book more than I did originally, like Ender's Game or The Great Gatsby. She's not like Bella who falls to pieces when Edward leaves. What the fuck happened to Peeta? Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans--except Katniss. It got too preachy at certain points though, didn't it? There is no Disney ending to the Hunger Games, and I believe that if there was one than it would ruin the message of the series.
Unlike during the games, I never doubted that he could survive on his own. There are a few bright spots and some good prose, but over all, I'm not taken with the book. Prim's death didn't have the impact that I'm sure Collins was aiming for; I didn't feel sad when she died, as she's barely in the story as it is, so I didn't get to know her well enough and connect with her beforehand. Why do the districts and isolation, ie Gale moving away from 12 and seemingly dropping off the face of the earth still stand? However, once the rebels realized this, they simply fed endless lies to the birds, and sent them back loaded with false information. It takes a very difficult but honest route, portraying the infinitely damaging consequences of war regardless of the righteousness of its cause and Katniss's journey to stay true to herself and do the best she can. Not only that, but Katniss is continuously faced with questions of whom she can trust, including at the end of the novel when President Snow reveals what he claims is the truth about President Coin.
Luckily, when he got out he ran off into the sunset and lived happily ever after. So Peeta's being held captive i think they might be doing scientific experimentation on humans and Katniss goes to rescue him -and tells Gale to get her family to the safety of District 13- well Gale doesn't listen and gives Haymitch or someone else the job while he goes to the capital also without Katniss' knowledge. And maybe that's problem: I expected this to match when I don't think anything can. First of all, I'm getting a bit tired of reading about love triangles -- especially in novels where there's a much greater plot present. I guess, sometimes our emotional bones need to be re-broken in order to set them right. Structurally, the novel is quite messy. It seems to me Katniss is an annoying character who I think became badly one dimensional.
And the love triangle resolution. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. Perhaps it is because I can look at it in a new light. The first book is a very good read, the second is pretty good, but this, the end volume is very, very weak. And I dont give out five stars easily. Mockingjay was such a flop for me. It would be totally unrealistic of me to expect much more of Katniss considering all she's done.
Then there is the rebellion itself. But she still had some semblance of control and she was still Katniss. Who was your favorite character and why? I listen to audiobooks to lose myself in a story and was unable to do so due to her inability to bring any life or excitement to this series and she sounded bored reading it. In Book 2 the main character gets drunk and vomits. Overall, however, the story leaves a depressive impression, contains a lot of extremely violent scenes that could potentially negative impact on the child's psyche.
She must become the rebels' Mockingjay--no matter what the personal cost. Who was your favorite character and why? I felt it in the 1st books, but this ending was devoid of all hope and happiness. Plus the fact that they're in economic collapse and dealing with the fallout of a costly war. How could Katniss end up so lame!!! No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to stay out of trouble. I can understand people not liking the book - because it isn't what they had signed up for.
I left a fantastic series with a major blank. Katniss wore the pin as her in both the 74th and 75th Hunger Games, to represent District 12 and remind her of home. I think my heart broke for Katniss when that all happened. It is the boys who are interested in her! I don't think it was that bad. It left me feeling emotionally drained and like I'd lost something. She kept her humanity intact in a crazy world. The best things in life never come easy; anybody who's done anything has had to overcome obstacles to accomplish their goals.
They pick up tunes quickly, and often spread them to other nearby mockingjays. In a scene ultimately deleted from the , explains to that the mockingjays were something that should never have existed, and applies this same status to Katniss' and Peeta's co-victory. Gale isn't stupid but he keeps his pony in the race because he wants to be the one she picks because he loves her. A Mockingjay, as portrayed in the film. Gives the story more atmosphere : If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be? I'm not sure if I'm shell-shocked or simply worn out by the intensity of it all. And so, with Haymitch, Gale, Beetee, Finnick and her old prep team backing her up Katniss becomes the Mockingjay. Where did the potential leader go I ask you? I don't think anybody's gunna be able to predict these twists though.
