Suddenly, she learns that the rescue team has miraculously returned and was successful. So whilst I didn't satisfactorily buy the ending, I really loved this book and highly recommend this series - even if I had to out myeslf as an evil, plotting witch with political aspirations of taking over the world to do it! Strange things did happen here No stranger would it be If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree. Coin expresses her admiration for Katniss' bravery, as well as her sympathy for the destruction of District 12. But nobody apparently got the memo. The rules in these Games, however, are different because more than one person can survive, and Snow is a player as well.
She never completely recovers, and my heart breaks for her. About halfway through, I was ready to feed the damn thing to my dog. As Coin announces the successful liberation of the prisoners to the people of District 13, and expresses her hope that the Districts will now unite against their mutual oppressor, Katniss sneaks into the medical facility where Peeta is being treated, and realizes to her horror that he is kept in isolation, completely psychotic and screaming in agony. All this pain that she goes though, and so much more, should make her deserve a happy life afterwards. Yes, once I'd forced myself to come to terms with the fact that that wasn't going to happen, I did enjoy the last ten pages greatly.
When I read , I was enthralled. While reading I felt like Katniss, a pawn. A controversial strategy proposed by Gale results in a decisive victory over District 2, enabling the rebels to launch a final assault against the Capitol itself. But its in 'Pros' because im all for character's death, and this was the only death scene that didnt look like it was first draft stuff. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
I thought Katniss was intelligent, resourceful, and displayed tremendous strength in character. And now that we've gotten that over with. Yes, humans are disgusting creatures who hurt and kill one another, who do horrible things because of greed and selfishness and just pure malice. Though Peeta has improved a bit, he's still hijacked and hates Katniss. I kindled it early this morning and ignored my kids for 4 hours and got through it. The good news is that the Hunger Games no longer exists and never will again.
Katniss, Gale, her mother, and Prim all live in District 13's vast underground community and abide by President Coin's militant systems. And, yes, she does finally decide. I just hate what Collins did to her to make her need it. The second death was tragic and senseless. If they don't know what's real, how do you? Who knew there would be so much darkness hidden between its pages, so much heartache? Like, someone who murders might think she did so because of an unplanned series of unfortunate events, but an observer thinks the killer did so because she is naturally a murderer. The makeovers, speeches, and roles to play are all waiting for the girl who is supposed to be their Mockingjay.
I'd demand to know why I was being toyed with, used even, and frankly? What role does it play in the war? What I need is the dandelion in the spring. Then Gale and Peeta talk about who Katniss is going to pick. She even offers to stop and take Peeta's place as prisoner. That being said, I love this book. And the book offers lots of food for thought on what it means to become a symbol to oppressed people, how war propaganda can sway people, what people will endure to be free of oppression, whether it's right or not to use the same dirty tactics as the enemy to win a war, and how hope and some peace can still be found after seeing the inhumanity of war.
Heck, instead of spiraling into bleak depression and continuing life as a puppet, I would have rather seen her die for a noble cause and for doing the right thing. Not once in this book did I feel his love for her. She just ended up with Peeta because he was the only one who stuck around. Before he dies, he gives her command of their unit. However, unbeknownst to the Capitol, the survivors managed to build an underground bunker below the ruins.
This book is a page turner; the revolution is in full swing. As of March 2012 , the book has sold over 9 million copies. Happiness was there in the end, but it just wasn't enough to compensate for all the sadness. In the epilogue, Katniss shares that she ended up with Peeta because she needed his faith and loyalty more than Gale's inner fire since she has enough of her own. I think it is, considering that I am not a crying-over-books type.
