For the first time in the trilogy, Peeta was not a Gary Stu, a doormat, a little too sacrificial for me to believe. As the children collect the parachutes, bombs placed in the supply packages explode and kill many of them. Unbeknownst to Snow, Heavensbee is actually the leader of an underground resistance, Capitol residents who are sympathetic to suffering in the districts, and planning a nation-wide revolt against ruling Capitol despots. Sometimes we need a little help to pick ourselves off the floor and start again. He never returns to District 12.
They get a letter, and find out that Gale has a fancy job with the Capitol which basically means he is totally out of the picture and Peeta and Katniss can focus on making babies — which they eventually do. In a harsh war world, you need someone strong and skilled by your side. Faint of heart need not apply, I mean it. The Hunger Games, I couldn't put it down; for this, I dreaded picking it up to finish it. I would not have minded if the Gale who showed up for this story had been one of its casualties. No matter how I enjoyed this book and I did, I really did , I'm in a sort of grieving state.
Instead of satisfying me, the kisses have the opposite effect, of making my need greater. There's a full scale rebellion and im pretty sure the whole book will be about that. It wasn't President Snow or President Coin I hated that name torturing Katniss; it was Collins. When the time comes, shedoesn't. 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. This society controls everything from who you marry to when you die.
Many tributes give their lives in the Quarter Quell arena Chaff, Seeder, Mags, Woof, Cecelia, the Morphlings, and Wiress or are captured in the aftermath Peeta and Joanna but Plutarch's plan succeeds - and the rebels rescue Katniss along with Finnick and Beetee from the arena. The writing was irritating, the deaths pointless, the violence totally over-the-top. In the film and associated novel, the character Katniss Everdeen uses the phrase as a challenge to the ruling administration after she shoots down two of the planes with which it bombs a hospital. It left me feeling emotionally drained and like I'd lost something. She's not scared to go to dark places and she's not scared to scar her characters up a bit. Gale and Katniss know they must keep moving, otherwise they'll be killed or identified, so they keep moving, running through the streets avoiding gunfire.
Sure, she definitely has reason to be sad and angry, and her life is full of hardships and tragedies. Because the rebels are gaining in strength, and because Peeta has sent out a coded message to the rebels warning them of an attack, the Capitol releases footage of Peeta being tortured. Under similar circumstances I think every normal person would shut down emotionally. It just felt so unnecessary and wrong. Here, she took the believable violence and cruelty of war and made it a little unbelievable for me. I understand the message Collins is trying to convey and I agree with it: that war is awful and no one truly wins.
. Even free from the clutches of the Capitol, Katniss still has a role to play - whether she wants it or not. District 13 really does exist. Galemoves to district 2 for a fancy job and her mom leaves to district4 for a medical job she's faded out again after another sad death The last sentences are: Peeta: You love me.

Not my cup of tea, and puts my retention of the other two in my collection in question. She is glad to see that she appears almost bored in the replays of the reapings. The ending is a crap shoot, and that epilogue was bullshit. Then it's time for Snow's execution. She gives Katniss the gold pin from her dress.
Then, Katniss notices her sister Prim in the crowd of children helping. Besides the state of of Katniss and Peeta's relationship, she gives us very little conclusion. As a result, the story now centers a white girl, like the vast majority of stories represented in the media. So many people have said that The Hunger Games are like Twilight. And now that we've gotten that over with. The main problem I have with this book is similar to the first book many of the battle scenes do not make sense to me, they are as confused as Katniss' mental state. She rushes towards the barricades, shouting her sisters name.
Then, together, they watch footage of the other reapings. Katniss is still haunted by Snow and fears for Peeta's life. The Avox girl was named Lavinia, which is learned in Mockingjay. 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. Katniss doesn't believe that she has any chance of winning because tributes from the wealthy districts have grown up training for the Hunger Games. Prim dies from a bomb from the capitol.
