For a year, I had been anxiously waiting to read the about the adventures of the rebels, the hopefully happy ending. Not once in this book did I feel his love for her. She tries to negotiate with the District 2 survivors and is shot in the process. So, of course I had to read it again after getting only half of the story from the Mockingjay movie. It also reveals how kindness, love and manipulation significantly affect our lives. Later, District 13 leveraged the nuclear arsenal to threaten the Capitol and gain autonomy. Right before they go out into the field, Peeta's assigned to their unit too.
Katniss on the other hand, I'm relieved to say, is a female character who isn't hung up on emotions and the postures of love. But she has a surprise with his reaction. I doubt many of the residents of district 13 even held any great love for her! Actually, it makes me not want anyone else to read the book ever. I shall use my cake decorating skill to our advantage! Katniss re-affirms herself about her new role as a rebel for District 13. They understood what others could not. Because It was awfully written. Ewell threatens Atticus and other people connected with the trial because he feels he was humiliated.
She did all her wonderful, brilliant, and brave acts of defiance out of the drive to help her loved ones survive and out of pure human compassion which is plentiful under her seemingly gruff and cynical exterior. Until a few days earlier, the Capitol didn't even know who President Coin was and every single district apart from 13 probably had never seen her. Bittersweet is the perfect word. Collins self-plagiarises herself in the second book. Peeta was taken away from her. The next morning, the bombs have stopped and District 13 has survived the attack. I think she's going to finally step up to the plate and bring the capital down.
But Katniss and Peeta have the perfect matching set of skills to help put the world back together and they already have the love and trust of most of the population! I just hate what Collins did to her to make her need it. When she leaves, Coin voices her doubts about Katniss' resolve; Heavensbee replies that she simply needs to be reminded who the real enemy is. My name is Katniss Everdeen. Coin made it look like it was Snow's bomb so Katniss would think Snow killed her sister, thus making Katniss want to kill Snow. Sure, she can be on fire, but only when someone sets her on fire or directs her to be on fire, not of her own doing. Deaths are fine when they're important to the plot, but this felt like death for the sake of death. I'm tired of people saying Katniss settled for Peeta.
Now can she please pick herself up and make herself useful? In an emergency meeting, it is decided that Katniss should make a video in District 12; showing Peeta what atrocities Snow has done there may change his mind. But towards the end of this novel, I didn't give a flying fart about Katniss's love life and who she ended up with, because everything seemed like such a hopeless, depressing mess that there was no point. The Hunger Games Part 2 The second part is centered on the games which take place in a completely different setting from the districts. As the Hunger Games take place, we are shown the dark side of humanity and how far we are willing to go to survive. Soon, Peeta returns to District 12 and he and Katniss grow back together. Everything she did was for show, for a propo or campaign or whatever. 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.
Throughout this book, there is a steady rhythm of characters reminding Katniss of her power and describing her power to her. In the book, she is only able to get married and start a family once she puts the Hunger Games behind her. My feelings basically remain the same about this installment. And in the end, that was my biggest problem. Just as Katniss and her team are leaving District 8, another airstrike arrives, targeting the hospital. As several squadrons approach and bombs start falling, Katniss notices that her sister has not come along to the shelter. Words can't begin to express my disappointment.
We fell in love because the plot grabbed a hold of our minds with an enthralling story filled with worthy engaging characters. I don't really cry during books. But the ending is brilliant, especially the final chapters. They want her to step forward and lead the revolution: become the Mockingjay. When I read , I was enthralled.
About Peeta vs Gale Okay, I've already said it but I feel it bears repeating since so many people hate this book simply because of who Katniss chooses in the end: this series is about so much more than romantic love. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. 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? The Hunger Games Summary — Characters The hunger games characters are interesting and exciting. Katniss choose Peeta because she wanted him. Katniss is a different person from the first two books. In time the feeling will pass, I know, but at the moment I'm sorry for it.
