The Hunger Games series is about so much more than teenage angst, or romantic love. They agree she's going to pick the one she can't survive without. Collins has a sense of humor! 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! The hospital burned down in district eight. But that only works when there's an underlying message of hope and of optimism. I was so happy for them.
This whole thing felt like a sputtering fizzle-out of what really should have been a fantastic series. The writing in this book irritated me. For me, there is very little difference between The Hunger Games trilogy and the Twilight series. Katniss is a different person from the first two books. She experienced the worst nightmare of the world of Panem - the Hunger Games - twice. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. I expected this How do I begin to convey my disappointment? Also, her inclination to incidentally make issues can start numerous discussions about whether she was correct or wrong and whether she stayed consistent with whom she is.
That, more that anything, saddens the reader. Perhaps the publisher gave her too tight a deadline, but this is a huge letdown regardless. If the author wanted to kill these characters, go ahead and do it. But my biggest question is, why does Collins hate Peeta? Trauma finally catches up with her. Even though this book is a far departure from the first two books, I believe that Suzanne saved her own series.
About halfway through, I was ready to feed the damn thing to my dog. I found her softer, more thoughtful, and also more open granted, she's still kind of a brat sometimes. Mockingjay is the darkest book of the Hunger Games trilogy, containing excess violence, brutality and ugliness. Plus the fact that they're in economic collapse and dealing with the fallout of a costly war. Then Gale and Peeta talk about who Katniss is going to pick.
In its fame and effect, The Hunger Games set of three has been contrasted with other prominent dream books for youngsters, for example, the Twilight series and the Harry Potter series. But, no, it's too much to ask that Katniss step up into a role like that! The movies were amazing too. The thing the author got right is Katniss herself, she is forced to grow up and harden herself to the world, but her emotions have not quite caught up. She was used and manipulated, sustaining mental and physical injuries. This is what i think is gunna happen. Where is he going to live? The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses.
When a character's will to survive is absent through a whole novel, I as a reader have no desire for them to live either; grant their wish already! What's going to happen to this character that we've been forced upon for almost three whole books, and 1200+ pages, and who's played a huge part in the story of Katniss's life? While reading this book, I felt almost as depressed as a sober Haymitch. She still lacks control over her life. No Katniss, the people who dropped the bombs brought it on them. I love her characters and her thoughtful messages. I would have loved it if we could have had some detail from Snow and Katniss's trial and what went on in there. District 13 really does exist. She was strong, resourceful, clever and cunning, she had an amazing survival instinct and she knew how to persevere.
Also I changed some parts because, again, the review should be hidden but. This book was a fucking slog. But as I kept reading, I realized. It is so mindnumbingly dull to be watching a character watching something, instead of experiencing the action with the character. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans--except Katniss. There's a full scale rebellion and im pretty sure the whole book will be about that. And then fondly recall the excellence of the first book.
By the end, everything is so messed up that Peeta vs. That is only a personal reaction, not a recommendation. Sneaking out of the house to the park down the street where you and your six friends would share a single can of beer and pretend you're drunk? A book that comes very close to one of those pompous tomes and for that matter movies, short stories etc. The longer you wait to resist the worse it may be. Who's the drugged-up shadow that's replaced her? She would not have the capacity to survive the harvesting and Katniss knows this. He got eaten by mutts in a sewer, along with half their assassin team.
