Everything, from Katniss's clothes which she's weirdly fixated with to her circular, drier-than-Egyptian-sand inner monologues were painstakingly pored over to the point of ridiculousness. Katniss and Peeta escape by climbing to higher ground, while the other tribute falls and is tortured by the creatures. I just hate what Collins did to her to make her need it. Katniss is on her own at first, but then she discovers that Peeta has teamed up with the Career Tributes — the strong kids from the rich districts in Panem who actually want to go to the Hunger Games. Katniss poaches from the woods with Gale, an act which could get them killed. The readers will love it.
Most of the squad are killed along the way, including recently married Finnick. Not that this story is any more unbelievable than , but Collins delivered this one with such a numb, detached string of events that relied on violence instead of characters to deliver her message. Though trespassing in the woods and poaching are illegal, nobody pays attention, and Katniss even sells meat to the Peacekeepers who are supposed to enforce the laws. I don't know, get over yourselves and go read something else if you were looking for a nonsensical happily ever after. Whilst most parts were shocking, it did have its redeeming qualities: Some good one liners, a few breath taking scenes and the like. All these scenes were seemed like sub-plots.
And after that cliff-hanger ending in the previous book, my expectations for the finale were absolutely giant! Katniss is particularly affected to see a 12-year old from District 11, whose apparent frailty reminds her of Prim. And since I am only moderately evil and am actually very fond of Katniss and Peeta, I find the fact that they were allowed to go home and live out their quiet little lives peacefully to be very unrealistic. So Peeta's being held captive i think they might be doing scientific experimentation on humans and Katniss goes to rescue him -and tells Gale to get her family to the safety of District 13- well Gale doesn't listen and gives Haymitch or someone else the job while he goes to the capital also without Katniss' knowledge. These are known as mockingjays. He proposes she will wear fire and Peeta will be dressed to match her.
The Capitol's system — the Hunger Games, perpetual poverty, etc. Super disappointing because I flew threw the first two. In all my life I've only heard him speak about it in a candid manner one time. For starters I feel I need to say upfront, this book is not for everyone. I felt it in the 1st books, but this ending was devoid of all hope and happiness.
Then the male tribute is selected. Brought back some pretty pungent T-word memories. One can look at the title in a. It's actually not the fact that the characters died that bothered me. I'm not one of them.
Having heard of Katniss's kindness towards Rue, the tribute lets her live. Finally, Katniss shoots Cato and he falls into the pack. One skill she mastered was identifying which herbs, roots and plants were safe to eat or use. But the way in which Finnick dies is nonsensical. For Effie, as for others in the Capitol, appearances are very important.
But in a sense, Collin's shows us that when violence is used to such extremes, no one wins; yes, a winner is declared - but the sadness and loss of both sides proves that no one really wins in war Mockingjay, the final book in Suzanne Collin's Hunger Games Trilogy. I considered 3 stars here, as there are times when some very good writing comes through. Gale never showed up in this book, not the intense Gale hiding a painful love for Katniss that I loved. I finished the book feeling hopeless and lost and depressed, and not in that deep, profound way where it motivates me to get up off my ass and do something to make a difference. There are many threads of meaning and themes you could take from this story, but the one that strikes me as profound right now, a few days removed from my reading, is, why are we so goddamn powerless? My feelings basically remain the same about this installment.
She is the only one standing between her family living or starving. Katniss reacts by stabbing her knife between Haymitch's fingers, as he reaches for more alcohol. Katniss doesn't believe that she has any chance of winning because tributes from the wealthy districts have grown up training for the Hunger Games. The idea of an unconditional kindness is not only hard for her to comprehend, but she also feels that to think in such broad emotional terms about Peeta could prove a liability. But when Katniss watches the other reapings, she can't help but see Prim in one of the other contestants, which illustrates how challenging it will be for Katniss to dehumanize the other tributes, especially Peeta. Back in 13, Katniss and Finnick watch another interview with Peeta, but this time she can see that he has been tortured and is hurt. Mockingjays are something of a slap in the face to the Capitol.
After they arrive at the Training Center, Katniss and Peeta meet their stylists. The oldest of several children, Rue is only 12 years old when she's reaped for the Games. Even Gale knows how she feels and says as much when they're in District 12 to film the propo. Here's seven reasons why this trilogy sucks: 1. It's war, people have to die in order for there to be peace.
