The perfect note of sadness and sweetness, pain and healing all mixed up in a jumble. The plot itself, was poorly executed by Collins. When we did the first few films, we left out some stuff. Hoping that in doing so she might save Peeta's life and finally put an end to President Snow's rule. Katniss agrees with President Coin here--Peeta was always better with words and has a 'way' with people--but otherwise Katniss does not trust the woman.
Well, was it even a choice, really? We short changed page 19 of the first book. The world is completely unacceptable and unbelievable. And good and bad are not clearly defined black and white. I honestly don't understand it. She was finally facing and working through the all the grief and pain. It always deals with untimely death, tragic lives and terrible situations in which people are abused and scarred, in any and every way.
Why did he go there? This time it's Mockingjay, the face of the rebellion she unwittingly helped to bring. I was in love with the characters, and had been waiting for for almost a year. But in a sense, Collin's shows us that when violence is used to such extremes, no one wins; yes, a winner is declared - but the sadness and loss of both sides proves that no one really wins in war. Not because of character's deaths or beautiful writing, but because of the entire gloomy atmosphere. It's one of the best movies I've seen in a very, very long time.
Truly, it couldn't have ended any other way. Why am I not dead? I'm not sure how to react to Mockingjay. Instead of satisfying me, the kisses have the opposite effect, of making my need greater. But the ending is brilliant, especially the final chapters. I have decided that The Hunger Games is an amazing series, but Collins is not a good writer kind of like Twilight and Smeyer. Unsurprisingly, cried and cried again. The most important bits of this story when Peeta, Annie and Johanna were rescued, when the Capitol was overthrown, and the Trial of President Snow and Katniss Were totally and utterly overlooked.
As did her constant use of arrows in futuristic combat. Collins portrays this well with Katniss: so strong in the first two books, pushed to the very edge of sanity for the majority of this book, on the verge of suffering a total break down. I considered 3 stars here, as there are times when some very good writing comes through. And I understand that not all books are unicorns-and-ponies happy endings, and that this series has always been intense and dark and a bit bleak. The writing was irritating, the deaths pointless, the violence totally over-the-top.
What I didn't enjoy was Gale's end. I think that unfulfilled wish is, at the end of the day, why I'm feeling this way right now. Yes, I was absolutely distraught over the death of Finnick he just married Annie! When so many books have slightly bittersweet endings, this book is much heavier on the bitter, distinguishing itself from so many others. She remains haunted by the past, even twenty years later. I just can't bring myself to believe that they wouldn't drug Katniss up, put her smiling face on stage and have some kind of deciding power working behind closed doors while Katniss waved happily to the smiling faces and kissed babies. She was strong, resourceful, clever and cunning, she had an amazing survival instinct and she knew how to persevere. What the fuck happened to Peeta? And it's to save your people, not your boyfriend, fiancé, whatever.
Which is the entire point. I'm glad, in a way, that it ended like it did. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 3 will be release din December, 2017. The rebels fought, they won. In Catching Fire, these qualities diminished; she was mainly a pawn, a puppet for others to use for their own objectives.
It takes a very difficult but honest route, portraying the infinitely damaging consequences of war regardless of the righteousness of its cause and Katniss's journey to stay true to herself and do the best she can. Probably the best ten pages of the series. There's also the writing, which is so overwrought - it's not even like the author took the sparseness of the first book and butchered it. But in a sense, Collin's shows us that when violence is used to such extremes, no one wins; yes, a winner is declared - but the sadness and loss of both sides proves that no one really wins in war Mockingjay, the final book in Suzanne Collin's Hunger Games Trilogy. Like, Katniss just shoots her-gets locked on her own for a few days. So yes, I am eating my words and saying Katniss ended up with the right person. This sounds idealistic, I know.
I've seen both of the other movies for this series, and while I enjoyed them greatly, the third instalment was on another level entirely. Also latest movies and old movies are free to stream full fast server. She was so messed up by all the senseless violence that she'd already checked out emotionally. I have plenty of fire myself. This book seriously dragged and dragged and dragged, and just got slower and slower until everyone started dropping dead towards the last quarter of the book.
