I meant that they are both so altered from the two characters we loved in the beginning that they are almost unrecognizable. It upset me earlier in the series when Gale was being considered by Katness as she was blowing Peeta off to be with him. 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. After all the sacrifice that had happened for the greater cause for humanity, I still felt like Katniss didn't get it and that she could never get over blaming herself. While recuperating, she bonds with another victor who we met in Catching Fire, Johanna, and witnesses the wedding of victors Finnick and Annie.
I had a harder time getting into this book. I think I let out an audible sigh of relief when he showed up in her front yard. We already know that Coin disliked her and wanted her out of the picture because of what Boggs tells us, so saying no might mean she would lose her chance to kill Snow. All of the telling and especially the continuous hearing what happened after the fact bothered me beyond words. However, I couldn't understand why Gale is disposed of with a one-liner about a 'fancy' job in District 2.
And then she goes all hyprocritical and hates Gale. I agree with almost all that you say. That was not my intent. This was a heart wrenching read. And this love is what plays in to the overall theme of the book. Gale never pushed her to choose and has always been there for her and her family. She wanted to have a real active role in the fight.
In the hunger games Katniss admited that she was jelous of Gale when the girls talked about him. Of all the recent movie trends, the decision to stretch the last book in any series across two movies is a head-scratching one. By now the whole world is flipping out about read my spoiler-free review! Yes he was fiery and passionate re his rants to Katniss back when they used to hunt but that was because he cared so much about how people were treated. So many people died and they were all the decent and lovable people. The filming of Catching Fire has just begun, which will set District Thirteen in Atlanta, Georgia and move to the tropical city of Kauai, Hawaii during the jungle arena scenes.
At first I disliked Katniss in the two books, but now I've gained an even higher respect for her. I loved all the twisted secrets behind everyone and how Katniss killed Coin who i hated. In the end I was glad she ended up with Peeta, they understood each other in a way that her and Gale never could, having not been with her during the games or understand how the Capitol and district 13 had abused and thrown these two into the revolution. The story is very much about Katniss, not just the effects of war on children and families, but about Katniss and her family specifically, with the overall revolution in the background. She heads back to District 2 and is part of a summit about whether to attack the other side humanely or inhumanely.
Honestly, it killed me to remember how he told her he loved her in Catching Fire. I feel that most of the answers to all of the questions is up to the imagination of the reader and the way we interpret what we read. In part because of Katniss's vote, the answer is yes — the Hunger Games will start again. And Haymitch supported her, knowing what she was up to. A survivor in a dystopian society, a survivor of war. I disagree with most of the comments on here as well as the original review. It would have been a more surprising moment, but seeing her die anyway was still satisfying.
This whole series was never a love story. It is the first of two films based on ' novel , the final book in trilogy, and the third installment in , produced by and Jon Kilik and distributed by. But during the meeting when she voted yes, for Prim and Haymitch backed her up, it shows that she finally realized the cycle of violence in humanity. That may be the underlaying cause, with so much misery piled on top, of Katniss' instability and emotional turmoil like her months of nothingness. I felt like Collins changed her mind in the third book, but had already hooked us into the original story in which a girl who once focused only on saving her own family becomes the mockingjay that starts a revolution and saves the entire country. Thrilled Katniss and Peeta ended up together.
They should of rescued him right when they got there, no training Katniss has skill already! There is gunfire, and suddenly Katniss is face-to-face with a man holding a gun on her. Catching Fire is expected to be released on November 22, 2013, while the others come out near the same day in the coming years. About younger audiences not understanding the work: I recently finished the first book and. I felt myself reading like I was trying to catch up with the story. Lydia I cant wait to read your review of the book! Thanks for doing that for me. This is totally understandable and expected, but it was so anticlimatic.
I suppose the thing that irks me the most is that we didn't get to see Peeta fall in love with her all over again, it was eery. With the minor descriptions given, I feel as if Collins failed to described Gale for what I believe to be a emotionless wanna be. I was also v upset by how quickly Finnick and the others were dealt with, though I suppose it could be argued that this was Collins's point - in a war situation, there's no time to build up a dramatic death and analyse feelings after it. Even Peeta's extraction is a little sedate, since the Capitol wants Peeta to return to District 13 so he can try to kill Katniss. Katniss lost all of her fire by the end of the book, she was barely making it from one day to the next.
