The last three pages make all the heavy, intense, painfulness of the rest of the book almost worth it, in a strange way. She also assures him that all his acts of cruelty will be avenged. Catching Fire wasn't as good but it was still enjoyable I was majorly impressed by the game arena. Afterwards, supply packages rain down from a hovercraft onto these children and a rebel medical team, which includes Katniss's sister Prim, but instead of supplies there are bombs and all the children die and so does the entire medical team. How did she end up being so admirable and awesome in the first two books and turned into such a sniveling, squishy mess in this one? What the fuck happened to Peeta? I didn't love it and I'm not sure it satisfied me, but it was a disturbing read that will stick with me. Then a shocking event happens, when Gale is whipped for poaching and Katniss throws herself in front of him to stop the punishment. I didn't love it and I'm not sure it satisfied me, but it was a disturbing read that will stick with me.
Contrary to what some believe, this is not an anti-war book. As the war unraveled, I felt like Katniss was always on the sidelines, only called in when other people commanded her to. The ending is a crap shoot, and that epilogue was bullshit. All I can say without bias is that the ending will not be all walkin' in a field of flowers and happiness. Do you give just what you got? Meanwhile, Katniss' fragile alliance with President Coin could lead to disaster. Haymitch explains she needed to be saved because she is the mockingjay, the lifeblood of the revolution. My point is, the reason we felt detached from the story is because Katniss was already detached.
This book is filled with more emotion, and I liked her best in this book, even though it's a tragedy of sorts. Millions of girls adore Justin Beiber but he isn't going to become the next president. In the meanwhile, the rescue team has arrived at the Tribute Center. Katniss goes on a strict regimen of training and exercising, undergoing a dangerous series of accelerated surgeries in the process. I was in a rush to unleash all my feelings after finishing the book so I wouldn't forget anything.
Eventually they see Johanna Mason approaching with Wiress and Beetee. How else could I orient myself in this sea of gray? I wasn't going to mention St Joan of Arc because that comparison would be a little too easy but since I have time I'll just quietly mutter that she helped lead France to a number of tactical defeats in the Hundred Year's War, crowned a King and was Burned as a witch before she was nineteen years old. Sometimes we need a little help to pick ourselves off the floor and start again. Katniss is weak and still recovering from her dramatic rescue out of the Hunger Games Quarter Quell Arena, in which was taken prisoner. Do yourself a favor and read it once more without your hopes and expectations mucking up the experience for you.
I hear a lot of guff about this not being a romance, but it's quite clear that it is. Im just sayin' -Every single character minus Haymitch, and at times Finnick and Peeta were utterly one-demential and boring. Losing several of their team as they go. On the way home, Katniss implies that she is having a hard time being the poster girl for the rebellion, drawing thousands of people into the war and into their deaths. In all my life I've only heard him speak about it in a candid manner one time.
Gale led his people to District 13, a secret area that the government had falsely claimed to be uninhabited. Collins shows nobody can be unflinchingly strong. And it needs to be said: even though the Peeta-Katniss-Gale love triangle is very much present in this book, it's not the focal point of the story. Every twenty-five years, a special Hunger Games occur, and this year is the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Games. Cato He is a career tribute from District 2, among the richest in Panem. She will make new friends, enemies, inspire and give hope to many people in Panem thanks to her performance in the games.
He is a fierce fighter and represents the ruthless ruling hand in the system. In some cases, time goes on and I end up appreciating a book more than I did originally, like Ender's Game or The Great Gatsby. Another Games victor, Beetee, makes Katniss a special weapon. She was strong, resourceful, clever and cunning, she had an amazing survival instinct and she knew how to persevere. While reading this book, I felt almost as depressed as a sober Haymitch.
She demonstrated her love and willingness to fight for her loved ones throughout the book; first when she volunteered to offer herself in place of her sister as the tribute and again with Peeta and Rue during the games. In the end so far as I can tell after all that's happened, after all the death and loss the world still revolves around Katniss at least so far as Katniss is concerned. The Minotaur was half-bull and half-man, a vicious. She should make up her mind about who she wants instead of leading them both on! I've thought long and hard as to how I should review this book. I really, really and truly enjoyed it. People do not behave like that in real life. Katniss must accept the responsibility of becoming the Mockingjay the symbol of the revelation.
