But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The bow and arrows did not have a place in the world of Mockingjay. Basically, the theory of fundamental attribution error says that we think that we make our own life choices because we are tossed in the wind and the crazy, random happenstance of outside forces makes us who we are. The makeovers, speeches, and roles to play are all waiting for the girl who is supposed to be their Mockingjay. So I suppose it's really ridiculous of anyone to expect her capable of then going on to be president of this new world after everything she's been through. Regarding Mockingjay the story line was fiction but her verbal depiction of the life of a soldier in cantonment, training and battle was uncannily accurate for anyone without military experience and exposure to hostile action. Yes, it's meant to be thought-provoking and show the price of war to humanity, but at the peak of all this violence, I pulled out of the story.
I was just thankful that I decided to be grown-up and not wait until midnight to get this book and then stay up all night reading it. I am sure she knew that the faint of heart would be enraged. This amps up the melodrama at times -- and so does her love triangle. This book makes you realize how much the storyline in the first two depended upon the tension created by the love triangle. He saw that kiss and knew. The best part is, her children, everyone's children for that matter, won't ever know the horrors of Reaping Day and the Hunger Games. Some are wonderful and nice while others are pure evil and filled with so much hate.
I think it is, considering that I am not a crying-over-books type. Third book I am not sure how I feel. I hope this review was understandable and enjoyable anyway : That's the end of the review and you can stop here but I wanted to add on. Instead, we get this weak girl who's shirking all responsibilities, addled on drugs half the time, and lashing out at people the other half. Not that I ever wanted Peeta to be mean or broken, but he can have heart and a backbone too. But I thought that the Katniss from the Hunger Games, the Katniss who had to keep her family alive since the age of 12, would be able to fight through and persevere. اي نوع من الطغيان طغيان حاكم , او طغيان ثوري جامح ليس للانتقام وانما.
In the end, I was too numb to feel its power, to even cry, to feel anything at all. Her writing lacked the thrills of the previous two, and if some one told me that was done by a ghost writer, I would have believed them. At the beginning, I could understand her confusion, her pain, her reluctance to be the Mockingjay. Her father taught her these skills before his death in a mine explosion when she was eleven years old, and she uses a bow he made. Granted some of the scenarios might have weapons and opponents that are scie nce fiction but the flavor and reality of battle and survival shine through in a most realistic way in all her books in this series. She was so messed up by all the senseless violence that she'd already checked out emotionally.
These two nine-year-olds thought it'd be a hoot to pick up a few guns and hold off the entire invading Burmese army. I'm not making any predictions because it feels like either my wishful thinking or my most dreaded outcome. I found myself thining about places like North Korea today -- this novel made me realize how incredibly difficult it is for a people to throw off a powerful, totalitarian government. Collins wove in a few questions to ponder. But if she is to win she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. Collins' part and that Katniss seemed to be growing out of it after the hard and troubling events at the end of said volume. Panem was formed of a Capitol and thirteen districts, but the districts eventually rebelled.
Some of the tortures make it worse. Showing that even though on occasion violence may be necessary, but that it is nor something to be taken on lightly and that any harm done to others, hurts the person causing said harm as much as the one it's done to. There is pomp and color, a complete contrast to gloom in the districts. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I think the content and issues are a little over her head at the moment.
She is an inspiration and motivation to the oppressed citizens of Panem. I kindled it early this morning and ignored my kids for 4 hours and got through it. She still lacks control over her life. All I can say without bias is that the ending will not be all walkin' in a field of flowers and happiness. Some kind of knowledge that there are wonderful things in the world worth salvaging, and weathering difficult patches in life will ultimately result in a brighter future.
What were you doing when you were 16? That post started an outrageous flame war on the listserv, in which a couple of the military guys threatened the poster. And support, peace, understanding and trust are the founding blocks of any partnership. That being said, I love this book. All these scenes were seemed like sub-plots. Prim's death, the specific way she died, is the only way Katniss was able to see and understand how truly evil President Coin was. The issues it raises the effect of power, how far is too far for a cause, the effects of war on soldiers and survivors, what is justifiable in a war, etc. Was comfortable with her, coldly understanding, wanted to win her because it was a competition, but never once did I sense any love.
