This one, I had to force You perfectly articulated all the reasons I did not enjoy this book. Do yourself a favor and read it once more without your hopes and expectations mucking up the experience for you. His feelings for Katniss will be revealed and at the same time be exploited during the games. Not that this story is any more unbelievable than , but Collins delivered this one with such a numb, detached string of events that relied on violence instead of characters to deliver her message. I would have been fine with this course of events had they appeared in. But there are much worse games to play. Katniss, meanwhile, considers her options.
I didn't love it and I'm not sure it satisfied me, but it was a disturbing read that will stick with me. Now, Katniss and all the other rebels and survivors live in District 13's underground community. And I bet something bad's gunnna happen to either Katniss or Gales family, someone's gunna die obviously , and someone's gunna get held captive and they're gunna have to break into the capital and rescue them. What the fuck happened to Peeta? As several squadrons approach and bombs start falling, Katniss notices that her sister has not come along to the shelter. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? I just hate what Collins did to her to make her need it. However, even though there is so much death in this book, most of it comes to new characters; the leader of district 13, Coin; Bogg, one of Katniss's bodyguards; mostly new or unknown characters that pass on.
Someone could tell me the world was ending August 23rd and i'd say, no it isn't! The first hundred pages are almost comically boring, and the prose suffers under nonsensical fragments, run-on sentences and huge internal monologues in the middle of conversations. Some are wonderful and nice while others are pure evil and filled with so much hate. How many soldiers do you know who came out of a war unscathed or empowered by the atrocities they have witnessed? They fly over to District 8 where she visits a hospital full of wounded rebels. There are other reasons to not like this book, reasons I can and do totally respect, but the reasons listed above are probably the dumbest I've ever heard. How do you miss with a machine gun? When Katniss later sees mockingjays, they remind her of Rue, and that memory inevitably stirs her hatred of the Capitol and her wish to rebel, and take revenge, against it.
From the beginning Katniss did what she wanted whenever she could. This is the Hunger Games summary of the plot. President Coin, leader of District 13, makes it clear from the start she is no fan of Katniss, saying they should have saved 'the boy' first. Almost nothing remains of District 12. Katniss is a different person from the first two books. Part way through Catching Fire, I was considering that this series may even be literary, but Mockingjay spat on that.
I finished the book feeling hopeless and lost and depressed, and not in that deep, profound way where it motivates me to get up off my ass and do something to make a difference. At the heavily anticipated public assembly, Katniss is reunited with Finnick who reminds her that Annie is also a captive of the Capitol and should therefore be on the immunity list. There was this attractive manly quality about him and he was so in sync with Katniss, and hot to boot. It seemed like Collins picked the only character she made us care about in this book on purpose. But after, I expected her to be strong and work through it, to face her fears and obstacles and choose to do the right thing, to really fight for justice. It wasn't President Snow or President Coin I hated that name torturing Katniss; it was Collins.
It's told by Katniss, the quiet girl from District 12 who unintentionally inspired a revolution through one simple act of defiance. Katniss is taken to District 12 by plane, where she discovers to her horror that hardly any building is still standing, and the bodies of numerous dead people are still lying between the rubble. After lunch, Katniss and Gale go to Special Defenses. When they were younger, he would offer Katniss burnt bread because she was starving and could not afford to buy. When she leaves, Coin voices her doubts about Katniss' resolve; Heavensbee replies that she simply needs to be reminded who the real enemy is.
All inhabitants of District 13 are quickly evacuated to the lower levels where they will hopefully be safe from bombings. If you are reading this review, chances are that you're wondering if the Hunger Games trilogy lives up to the hype. But during the book, she is always alone. But big difference here is that in the book, Katniss is working through far more serious mental health issues than the movie portrays. The next morning, Katniss goes to meet with Command with Gale in tow. Why am I not dead? Here they are in the middle of a war, people are dying left and right, and all they care about is filming and getting good shots and angles and putting on a pretty face! All you need to do is read the first few pages of The Hunger Games to verify this. It's not all about the spark that kindles the fire, you know.
Katniss has the personality of a vegetable 2. She has persevered after many close brushes with death, just like the Mockingjay itself. Katniss and Johanna don't train for the war Lionsgate In the book, when Katniss wants to go to the Capitol to join the fight and end the revolution, Coin flatly denies her because she is not a trained soldier. The whole series is a combination of cheap thrills in which the last book is a complete mess. That's when I make a list in my head of every act of goodness I've seen someone do. This is what i think is gunna happen.
Deaths that don't ensure anyone else's survival, are excessively undignified, or never grieved for. I bought Mockingjay the first day it came out and I was preparing myself for a truly epic novel, one worthy of its predecessors. It makes sense that she published this story in three parts, but I think it could also be read as one whole. It would be naive to expect otherwise in a book dealing with war. I found her softer, more thoughtful, and also more open granted, she's still kind of a brat sometimes. Katniss ponders the reality that Peeta is still putting himself in danger to save her - he wants to make sure that Katniss is not punished if the rebels lose.
