The characters are wonderful to read, if maybe a little two-dimensional. Its combination of nerve-racking tension, thrilling action, and engaging love story kept me up until the wee hours. You look like a fool when you say as much. I just love love Peeta. The writing was irritating, the deaths pointless, the violence totally over-the-top.
As with the rest of this series there is no shortage of young children being hurt and killed in horrible and gory ways. And, for the most part Katnis is a girl of action in book one, and for the most part she's portrayed as a pawn especially in book three. Was it just me or did everyone else frantically flip the pages after finishing Catching Fire? Instead, they fight in televised survival games inexplicably called the Hunger Games. She is very strong, whether it's for herself, Peeta, Gale, Prim, or even the whole country mainly in Mockingjay. Irrespective of how you like or dislike each book, you will be left with that elusive feeling that some things in them are too close to our lives for comfort. That was something else that kept me reading: the speed of the novels never lets up, and each installment is just as exciting as the last.
I thought Katniss was intelligent, resourceful, and displayed tremendous strength in character. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year. When I read , I was enthralled. Yes, I did write that. She is brave, courageous and strong, oh so strong. With the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins, award-winning author of the Underland Chronicles, brings her talents to a new trilogy aimed at a more mature audience than her books about Gregor, the Overlander. Collins not want to include any emotion or thought in that part.
You will hear that this book is a letdown after the first two. These books are completely awesome and if you are reading reviews then you probably already know what the books are about so need to go over old news! Whilst mockingjay is The Hunger games on a larger scale, it is not as engaging, concise or easy to understand as the first, fantastic novel. Nonetheless, my love for left me with hope that Katniss would finally step into her role as not only a symbol of hope and rebellion against tyranny, but as a leader in an uprising that opposes oppression, and emboldens freedom of choice and will. Example: 1984 - A guy manages to escape government surveillance for a time which time he pretty much squanders and is eventually caught and tortured for his disobedience. Katniss must accept the responsibility of becoming the Mockingjay the symbol of the revelation.
Katniss is basically trapped the entire time: hospitals, bunkers, rooms, etc. I can say I understand why people would say those things, but I also take issue with why people would say those things. While reading I felt like Katniss, a pawn. And then we realize that this was the entire purpose for this character in the scope of Collins story and then we feel abused. In a world where you have lost everything and no longer have a reason or the mental state or the will to fight, you need someone soft and caring. Other times she is completely useless all-together. We'll get back to this and what it tells us about Suzanne Collins.
No, that would be too easy. Katniss's journey eventually leads to the capital itself and a final face-off with President Snow. They were page-turning, absorbing, fast-paced, and adventurous, and I often found myself sneaking them under the sheets along with a flashlight. Suzanne Collins has managed to replicate the wonderful breadth and width of all-ages storytelling without cutting any of the corners off. Parents need to know that this is the final book in the bestselling trilogy. I just didn't think it was still Katniss in some ways. Most of the population of Panem was probably going to immediately assume that President Coin somehow had it coming.
I have plenty of fire myself. District 13 really does exist. But I was happy with the resolution for these reasons: 1. Some spoilers in review as I do discuss some things about the conclusion of the book. I liked that Katniss had 2 seconds of mental clarity and shot Coin instead of Snow the only time in the book when she was truly thinking clearly and acting of her own accord.
Let's start with the first book The Hunger Games. I didn't want a victim for a heroine, I wanted a victor. Obviously it's a survival story and I do like realism in my books, but this can go a bit far and I don't need to know about every bit of cracker she eats. That would be like you telling me about your day and stopping every five minutes to remind me that you're wearing your Chuck Taylor's and then after three months of this, Chuck Taylor's suddenly become sentient, rebel against humanity, and then install you as their king. The one bit of silver lining here is that thankfully, this almost assures us that in four years we won't be babysitting a gaggle of brats named Peeta—apparently Bella was uncommonly common after the Twilight wave surged. The last third of the book the assassin mission was gorey and bloody, which I didn't mind.
The person you one day see yourself marrying. قد يصل بهم الأمر لقتل الأبرياء فقط لأسقاط النظام والوصول للسلطة مكانه وبين هذا وهذا، نوع فريد من الثوار. I still have such a hard time accepting that this stark dystopian series was aimed at middle school young adults, and knowing that even younger children are reading it with parental approval. You made a meh book into a stellar piece of cinema. She remains haunted by the past, even twenty years later. It's one of the best movies I've seen in a very, very long time.
War causes so much damage and seeing your loved ones go through events and situations like that is not something I wish on my worst enemy. I found myself surprised many times over by how attached I had become to even minor characters as the story progressed. On July, I saw the movie and Katniss, Gale and the situations they are involved to are different from the ones I imagined. Because of Katniss's primary motivation throughout the entire series, that death was the true ending and it wasn't a happy one. I found her softer, more thoughtful, and also more open granted, she's still kind of a brat sometimes. For me It will never be over. So then, what is frail in comparison to a teenage girl.
