Of course, we all know there is a third volume in the series, so I am giving nothing up by reporting that the plan goes up in smoke. I wasn't disappointed per se, but it did fail to meet my expectations. Katniss tries to block with her body but misses. Upset, she asks why she and Peeta were not informed. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. I am sure would approve.
My opinion about the love triangle has changed, however. Katniss follows him through the jungle to another jabberjay screaming in Annie Cresta's voice. President Snow burns with rage at Katniss for showing up the games, the Capitol, and him personally. Katniss isn't good with words, she's all about action. Is he really planning to go through with it? The Hunger Games earned an uneasy 2.
The growing pains have begun. Don't get me wrong there is a lot more to the series than the love triangle. And the Capitol wants revenge. That really isn't the point, though, is it? If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. Nice Natalie: I like it, it gives her character depth. Also the third one will be called MockingJay coming out August 24, 2010.
I begin to question them casually. Most of the districts have rebelled against the Capitol, led by District 13 and its President. Coin then asks the surviving victors to vote on a final Hunger Games, involving the children of high-ranking Capitol officials including Snow's granddaughter. Drag me to the square to be locked in the stockade or whipped or hanged? I find the love triangle a little annoying but mostly interesting. I think it's a must read! There was just Katniss falling, Katniss running, Katniss swimming, Katniss doing this and that. I think her actions are completely uninspiring and are, of course, self-serving because she is just fighting for her own survival. She runs out of the house and into a basement of an empty house to scream and cry.
Katniss remembers watching these Games herself, so Johanna is fairly young. Ok, I really enjoyed this book. So yes, I approve of this motherfucking love triangle. The power it might have to manipulate the crowd? How can I protect him from a distance? She awakes in a hospital bed next to Beetee. Oddly, Katniss was one of the very people who expressed no sympathy whatsoever for Haymitch, despite witnessing his disturbingly awful stint in the arena when there were twice as many tributes as usual Haymitch competed in the 2nd Quarter Quell.
What makes the hunger games a more thrilling story is the games win or die rule. In the first book, all of the characters go through the entire book without changing at all by the end. Redundantly similar at points, only slower moving and far less polished. Katniss Everdeen grew from a raw teen in Book I to become a warrior. Hey, Peeta, remember how I was kind of faking being in love with you? If Katniss can convince everyone she is without a doubt in love with Peeta, Snow will spare her family's lives.
That night, both do not have nightmares. He talks about the first Quell, when every district was made to vote on who was sent to the Hunger Games. And everybody in the theater laughs, and then the film cuts to Hitler laughing, watching a movie of a Nazi soldier killing Americans. So I got bored about halfway through and because I was bored I started focusing on the irritating things. But the imagination in these books is incredible. I think I even learned a thing or two about human nature. There were moments where I would catch a glimpse of what made me love Hunger Games, and for that I give this book three stars.
The compassion, threats, action, betrayal, gestures, words all of it. The evil President Snow Leader of the Capital , tells Katness to either smother out this spark before it ignites, or people close to her will be killed. Katniss is more herself in this book rather surly, bad tempered, emotional. Did I say cheap already? In order to keep the poor cities in fear, the rich city requires each of the poor cities to send one teenage boy and one teenage girl as tributes to play the Hunger Games. Finnick and others strap her down and drug her to keep her calm.
Cheap writing Katniss really began to grate on me in this novel. Will there be a victor of the Seventy-fifth Hunger Games? I went to see Inglourious Basterds a couple of times this past month, and there is that scene where Eli Roth and Omar Doom are in the theater, and they dress themselves up to look like waiters and then whip around the corner and kill the two Nazi guards to some funny Ennio Morriconi ish? Plus she is critical of herself so you don't necessarily get a good feel of what people think about her other than what is said with dialogue. Nice Natalie: We don't know much about Peeta's family life since Katniss never bothered to find out. The books she is most successful for in teenage eyes are The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. I read Hunger Games 1 yesterday, and loved it.
