For fans of the books, this can be a dream come true. The rebels get Peeta and some other folks out of the Capitol, but Peeta's been badly damaged. Gale saved people by taking them to the Meadow where he and Katniss used to hunt. The bottom line Although it's really all about the money in the end, splitting novels into two or three films is not always a bad idea. My last reason is not that as Gale and Peeta changed, Katniss did too, and so did the world they lived in. You perfectly articulated all the reasons I did not enjoy this book. I know Collins is capable of power.
What the fuck happened to Peeta? Words can't begin to express my disappointment. But if Katniss really wanted Gale she would have picked him. She ended up with Peeta, which would have been fine if it had been executed properly. I think she's going to finally step up to the plate and bring the capital down. But nobody apparently got the memo.
The above are synonymous in the eyes of the Capitol. Unsurprisingly, cried and cried again. Therefore, Lionsgate brought in Suzanne Collins, the author of the series, to help write the screenplay of the first film. There are many red stars on that list. Katniss agrees with President Coin here--Peeta was always better with words and has a 'way' with people--but otherwise Katniss does not trust the woman. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. I bought Mockingjay the first day it came out and I was preparing myself for a truly epic novel, one worthy of its predecessors.
I know I can't have her, but if I had to lose her, I wanted to feel heartbreak instead of nothing. I'm pretty sure there's gunna be something about Katniss '? Yeah, well, not all of it was an act. But I think it was a stern talking-to that I needed. When I first read 'Mockingjay' I was a silly little fourteen year old, drunk up on the fast paced action and immediate danger Katniss faced in the first two novels. Once again, she is a pawn in somebody's power games.
Or District 13, for that matter. At the beginning, I could understand her confusion, her pain, her reluctance to be the Mockingjay. But by the final installment, Katniss needed to be in charge of her own fate, to understand her role, to be a role model. Katniss hears a voice in her ear: Haymitch is communicating with her via earpiece. But she is not a fiery revolutionary destined to lead the rebellion. I love her characters and her thoughtful messages. Those remaining fly away, having done considerable damage to the hospital.
I hate this series so much; I will never understand its popularity. Of course Katniss will be leading it. The hovercraft arrives in District 8. But yeah no favoritism here haha So Katniss as a mother was. She loves Peeta enough to make herself sick and crazy at the thought of what's happening to him - but she's also a functional, strong person who has a job to do. There is such a big game going on and Katniss' motivations and actions don't always make sense to me. You can accept what your handed and live with it, let them take your goods.
Another Games victor, Beetee, makes Katniss a special weapon. Structurally, the novel is quite messy. This brings up a rather interesting conundrum: is her going off-script part of the script now? As Katniss grew more bold, so did the remaining characters and the uprising initiative. 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. The workers trapped in the Nut, a mountain in district two. She's not like Bella who falls to pieces when Edward leaves.
Everything in this book was gratuitous and over the top, from the wangst to the ridiculous romantic interludes in the middle of battle scenes, and from the candy-gore violence to the stupid, overly-disgusting deaths of several characters who did not need to die. This book, to me, was the story of what happens when suddenly the person you trusted the most in the world sees everything you do as evil. Also, I wouldnt have objected to more Annie Cresta and Johanna Mason. Katniss is badly wounded again. These scenes start to raise complicated questions about authenticity. They're not going to the arena again.
