She always just expected them to be there for her without her having to give much back and she never really learnt a lesson about it or made a choice. What could we possibly be using to gauge realism in a book that has almost indestructible albino lizard men that smell like roses, dire wolf style creatures with the features of recently dead children, yellow jackets that make you hallucinate for days, birds that can exactly replicate human sounds, and invisible cameras that can film everything at once? I suppose she could have been so affected by Prim's death, but she's known Gale for years and knows he is a reasonably-decent person. If you want a happy, perfect novel filled with riches and goodness and loveliness, read Twilight instead because no-one dies in that! I realize she's only 16, but she's also a 16-year old who has literally been supporting her family. It'll keep you hungrily reading for more, looking for a inspiring resolution that never comes. It's to be expected, otherwise the ending would be very Breaking Dawn-esque. However, Gliese was smart, and stole their supplies while they were killing other tributes. Because looking closely, she wasn't really choosing between two men.
However, after a few days of thinking, I realized how skillfully this book was written. It's realistic that she's again ready to die in order to prevent the continued torture of Peta or just avenge his death , but as soon as he's back, she just gives up on him, and treats him like the bad guy? It was all jumbled, and I had no idea who died until the end. About twenty years later, Peeta and Katniss have to kids. That you can't prepare for it -- you can only hope to avoid it. This would also make the tributes bleed to death in extreme cases. Although I'm apprehensive to say, the ending with Katniss becoming a shell of herself, while not the favored outcome, was really believable.
Still, I liked the book over yes i did. Furelle was one of the most famous people in Panem when she was introduced as the winner that year, even though the people knew well of that the winner that year was Gliese. And it led to chain of events that would decide the fate of her lives and also of the whole nation. She kills coin and they have a trial while she just sits in a room, she doesn't get to explain why she did it or anything 3. Bad writing and a forced ending are not. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? The fact that she had a hard time choosing between Peeta and Gale also worked for the book. Katniss remains a marvelous shot with a bow and arrow but she's just a young woman trying to keep what's left of her family together, and rescue the baker boy Peeta Hutcherson from the clutches of Snow Sutherland.
This information is most likely true but, there is a slight chance it could be wrong. I wanted Katniss to step up and decide her own future rather than always being a pawn in someone else's game but I never felt like she really escaped other people deciding things for her. I loved the second as much as the first, but was very disappointed by the third. She watched from the sidelines as everyone else made decisions. Also, Katniss seemed to just settle for Peeta because he was there - I didn't feel like she really loved him. So it's realistic that everyone dies because it's war, even though we're set in a society where it's basically the whole of America against Denver? As far as I know there will be a fourth book.
But if you are the type of person who likes to think about the book you just read, you will find yourself loving the very things you hated about this book. Too much gruesomeness, self-pity, darkness and insanity. I did like the element of the love triangle team peeta vs team gale but if Collins was going to go this way she should have been consistent with her idea then keep switching around with the idea. Sad things will happen, obviously. It pretty much ruined the entire series for me. Because I think this book was written that way.
There's a revolution going on that she never really seems that interested in. The first two books being as great as they were, I simply can't imagine that she actually put her full effort into this. Anyway, got to give it to Suzanne Collins for putting together a great series. It's realistic that a character who's basically condemned herself to death twice in protection of those she loves will just give up and hide in closets when she's surrounded by those who can actually help her keep people safe? The whole thing about when the bomb hit her and she start thinking she was a mockingjay, and it was downhill from there. I think Collins forced the third book. They got the casting so very right with this ongoing project, from Jennifer Lawrence a crier, but also a fighter, and a fiercely talented performer on down. Back in district twelve after the districts won the war Peeta helps Katniss recover and plants primroses to remember Katniss' little sister,Prim, that President Coin killed.
Did its follow-up—the third of four movies—meet or exceed expectations? The ending seemed a bit disjointed, and it seemed strange the way Gale just disappeared out of the book. I agree with Grace and well, everyone who pointed out problems with the plot. Also, his odds of winning were 15-1. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe.

I understand that people don't like how the book ended. If she chooses Gale, then she would never find peace because Gale has been very much consumed by the war. In my mind I can see him telling Peeta, 'she is your problem now. Suzanne Collins is currently writing it. I liked the first two books because Katniss was a great character. The Hunger Games is a trilogy- there are three books. I'd like to look back fondly on the first two, but I can't remove Mockingjay from them.
Its like nothing mattered at the end, it made the first 2 books pointless. For more information on cookies including how to manage your consent visit our. In all honesty I wish Katniss had died rather than become a whiny teenager too caught up on who she loves. The writing felt rushed where the first two books the pace was fast and great. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either.
