But she makes it her own, and the book avoids feeling derivative through her complex and poignant characterizations of both major and secondary characters, and the bewildering interplay of personal feelings and political machinations. They do so with spears, rocks, arrows, knives, fire, and by hand. It may be worth more but as it is book one of a trilogy one has to leave room for improvement. She has done this by illegally hunting beyond the boundaries of District 12 and using the game she kills for food or for barter. I think I ran the emotional line as I read this. She witnesses the moment when Cato kneels beside Clove as he begs her to stay with him.
I don't really know how to explain my feelings about this book. Because of his assumption he does everything to tighten his control while she does everything to survive and protect. Which reality shows remind you of the one in this book? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Gregor the Overlander was brilliant, but could have been a fluke. Though some may see it as cliche, I do not know one person who dislikes this book. Ultimately, the real danger is thinking of others or the world in polarized terms. Every chapter is just amazing.
The main character, 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, volunteers for the Hunger Games to keep her younger sister from being required to participate and her experiences and fight to survive are the heart of the book. Brutal in parts, as it is a fight for survival, but overall I'd recommend this book and I will be reading the others in the series. Dystopia focuses on what becomes of our world when the inhabitants have taken less care of the environment. I personally thought that it is a very fast read jam-packed with enthralling happenings, and I absolutely enjoyed it. The former United States of America was hit with some kind of apocalypse and only those living in the Capitol have any kind of comfortable living.
Katniss's face is about to get sliced by one of Clove's sharp knives, but Thresh suddenly appears out of nowhere and grabs Clove off of Katniss. Mockingjay is, of course, fundamentally meant to be an engaging piece of entertainment — and it delivers on that front. Mockingjay Part 1 is both the tale of a young woman caught in an impossible web that others continue to weave for her and an intimate look at war. Peeta Mellark and Primrose are drawn as Tributes but Katniss volunteers to take her place for her sister. I love what she did for Rue, the small, sweet little girl from District 11, how she sang for her and placed all those wildflowers around her. Suzanne Collins has created an inspiring character and if I have a daughter I'll be calling her Katniss. It is a country that consists of an affluent Capitol with surrounding twelve districts—District One being the most prestigious, District Twelve being the least.
By rule, only one tribute will be left at the end of the games. This was a really nice change compared to other young adult novels where the love triangle is the main focus and the characters are always worrying about it. My sleep-patterns are better now, but I wish the series hadn't ended. Katniss is a strong character who solves her own problems and takes charge of her own life.

The rest of the book will be left to you to read! I also like the actors espacially Katniss, she is really great.
Go out there and get this book. But if she is to win, she will have to start making choices that will weigh survival against humanity and life against love. I read this text beause it is a exercise for my english Reading Portfolio. Through her skill with a bow and her ability to track and snare rabbits and squirrels, her family has been able to survive. Not in any unequivocal terms, in any event.
A girl's tongue is cut out. Plot was incredible and very fastpaced. Katniss Everdeen is a sixteen-year-old girl who lives with her mother, sister Primrose and best friend Gale in a poverty stricken town known as District 12. All to such a degree as to bring tears to the eyes. I really like how every time a chapter ends, there's either a shocking surprise or a cliffhanger. These kind of books are just amazing because of the descriptive words and how my mind races at times when the main character is a risk.
So thanks for reading my comment and i hope you have a nice day, Ella : Yeah I mean the Hunger Games is great. The Capitol organises the Hunger Games every year to punish the districts. Long ago the districts waged war on the Capitol and were defeated. They have something that makes them human, still. I always recommend this book to my friends and family. I love Katniss as a character! The Hunger Games is now a very successful film.
There is enough unique story here to justify the split. Hey guys, My name is Ella and I am 14 years old. However, this is a strong installment in the franchise. Peeta is the other tribute from District 12. I picked this book up at the store after hearing some buzz on the internet. Having a victor is important to a district — extra food and a few luxuries will be granted to the winner's district. I wasn't sure of the premise or if I would find it enjoyable at all.
