She continues to struggle with the balance of trying to be stoic and caring for others throughout the book. The birds would spy on people and are able to memorize whole conversations. I don't really cry during books. Otherwise he speaks about it in a detached way, as if he read about it or watched some footage of it instead of actually experiencing it firsthand. Or District 13, for that matter. He's the voice of reason.
She is the ultimate survivor. I have decided that The Hunger Games is an amazing series, but Collins is not a good writer kind of like Twilight and Smeyer. In a world of limited resources, the despotic government run by the Capitol keeps its citizens in line by separating them into Districts and reinforcing severe class separations. What will break her the most? For starters I feel I need to say upfront, this book is not for everyone. There is nothing beyond the story; it is basic and thrown in your face.
No collective nation would be so morally depraved as to watch the murder of children for entertainment; I cannot accept this idea. This book is a sham. There are stations where you can learn to trap, make knots, and other thing that may help them survive. Collins not want to include any emotion or thought in that part. Katniss regularly fails at patient and kind. Instead of dying off, however, they mated with mockingbirds, and the resulting species could replicate both bird whistles and human melodies.
Get off the computer you lazy little cow and go rescue some child slaves! After that she gets ready to go and hunt, finding the goat milk cheese, her sister had left her. She, like Cinna, made sure that no one would forget the 'girl on fire'. Peeta is a nice guy, who is willing to help anyone who needs it. They rescued her and now have plans for her. I had to keep reminding myself of all the horror she'd been through because although her detachment realistic, it bothered me. Katniss figures out that the only way Haymitch is going to send her anything is if she puts on a show; romance with Peeta.
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. This is day 3 of my Hunger Games binge after I watched the last movie last Saturday without knowing anything about the books and not having watched any of the movies. The pin is a small sign of rebellion and a comfort to Katniss. Once inside the Capitol, a team of people start to work on her to prepare her for her head stylist Cinna. I love going through that grief, feeling the torment of watching one of my beloved friends die a bloody death. Soon after Katniss Hears her name being screamed. And why was there no action taken afterwoods.
Katniss is sixteen years old and she's been in two Hunger Games, fighting against twenty-odd opponents to the death. If you expected a story where Katniss is the leader of the rebellion and kicks Capitol's ass, you will be gravely disappointed. But in the end for me to say I really didn't like the book wouldn't fit with a 3 star rating. Like , the stakes are upped, the gruesomeness of war more real, and the intensity more fierce. I kindled it early this morning and ignored my kids for 4 hours and got through it.
By wearing this pin, Katniss reminds the Capitol of one of their failed experiments. The concept of rebellion is explored in this chapter with the Avox being presented as an example of how the Capitol deters any defiance. But I love this book anyway, in spite and because of all the pain it has caused me. Every child between the ages of twelve and eighteen are eligible to be chosen through a random drawing. Edit: I just re-read this review a month or so after I wrote it and I sincerely apologize for my sloppy writing and overindulgence in run-on sentences! I'm also sad, and a little confused.
One day, at her lowest point, Peeta helped Katniss and her family. Katniss and Peeta are taken to the Justice Building and put into separate rooms. Contrary to the masses, I love reading books where loads of lovable characters die in the final fight. The jabberjay was used by the Capitol to spy on the districts, because they could repeat conversations. No collective nation would be so morally depraved as to watch the murder of children for entertainment; I cannot accept this idea.
