After watching this interview, many of the rebel leaders, including Coin, want Peeta to be tried for war crimes. He tells her that District 13, where they are currently residing, was bombed by the Capitol 75 years ago in retaliation over their part in the rebellion. Peeta helps Katniss deal with her feelings of leaving her family and Gale behind without saying good-bye. No collective nation would be so morally depraved as to watch the murder of children for entertainment; I cannot accept this idea. In other districts, Katniss can sense an undercurrent of repressed rage that suggests people are ready to rebel. I bought Mockingjay the first day it came out and I was preparing myself for a truly epic novel, one worthy of its predecessors. Johanna attacks Katniss, which makes Katniss think everyone has turned on her and Peeta.
I can't think of more horrible things to call her right now because I'm so angry at her! Since when was there an explosive that could fit on the head of an arrow and blow up an entire airship? She should make up her mind about who she wants instead of leading them both on! I'm pretty sure this will be fast-paced and suspenseful, but maybe Collins will take a differnet approach. I'm also sad, and a little confused. Mockingjay was a great big depressing flop. As Katniss grew more bold, so did the remaining characters and the uprising initiative. In the shelter, Primrose tells about how she is being trained as a doctor in District 13's hospital. For this to be an achievable story arc, Katniss has to develop into something more than a resourceful hunter, shooter of arrows, and unpredictable pawn.
Katniss is sixteen years old and she's been in two Hunger Games, fighting against twenty-odd opponents to the death. I was in the Hunger Games. The are in District 13 at Cinna's request, but they are being punished for stealing food. I'm leaving it as it's still essentially how I feel still. I really, really and truly enjoyed it. Sure, it obviously affects them they're not invincible but they don't lose themselves the way Katniss does.
Gale believes in her, as well, as does Prim. A day that each district is required to offer two tributes, a boy and a girl aged 12 to 18 years to participate in the games. The birds would fly all over the place, memorize entire conversations and repeat them back to their Capitol minders. 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. With this agreement set up, Katniss embarks on her duties as the Mockingjay.
He is immediately branded a traitor by the inhabitants of District 13. Katniss has the task of shooting him with her famous bow and arrow, but at the last minute, she kills Coin instead. Truly, it couldn't have ended any other way. She is filled with guilt for her role in inciting the uprising and anger against for his oppressive tactics. Another Games victor, Beetee, makes Katniss a special weapon. Short Plot Summary District 13, a state-of-the-art, rebellious, underground district that was thought to be demolished by the Capitol 75 years ago, wants Katniss the main character to be the Mockingjay, the symbol of the rebellion.
At the Training Center Haymitch tells Katniss and Peeta, they need to convince everyone they are still in love and to make friends with the other competitors. Meanwhile, Heavensbee urges President Coin to fire back; however, Coin decides to sit the situation out, not yet wanting to reveal to the Capitol that they aren't as defenseless as they may seem. After the rebels have had time to regroup, they start to prepare for the final battle: taking down the Capitol. My point is, the reason we felt detached from the story is because Katniss was already detached. Katniss choose Peeta because she wanted him. This Katniss is constantly waking up in hospital, taking drugs and completely losing the will to fight for the people she loves.
Then Gale and Peeta talk about who Katniss is going to pick. And I dont give out five stars easily. 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. On the train ride to the Capitol, Katniss and Peeta become close again. She heads back to District 2 and is part of a summit about whether to attack the other side humanely or inhumanely.
She tries to remember what happened before she was rescued from the Quell, but can't quite recapture it. There Katniss meets Commander Paylor, an important rebel leader. Are we powerless against other people or government systems, or are people and systems only symbols of our general powerlessness against the universe? Besides the state of of Katniss and Peeta's relationship, she gives us very little conclusion. I can only think in simple sentences. Collins' writing style doesn't have that much depth. I just didn't think it was still Katniss in some ways.
