I'm not making any predictions because it feels like either my wishful thinking or my most dreaded outcome. The Hunger Games universe is a set in , a country consisting of the wealthy Capitol and 12 districts in varying states of poverty. It's not like any other kids did great things. She later discovers an entire community of Runaway Uglies who tells her about the reality behind these operations and how they change their minds too. And in the end, that was my biggest problem. Does their definition of you become your own? The main problem I have with this book is similar to the first book many of the battle scenes do not make sense to me, they are as confused as Katniss' mental state.
The election of Paynor was just ridiculous and unrealistic. The book is quite different from the rest of the books like The Hunger Games and deals with an urge of change both physically and emotionally. In my opinion, this crossed the line with violence into shock value for the sake of shock value. I don't really cry during books. Why not let him finally prove his worth, achieve his greatness? However, instead of in the company of her surviving friends and family, she finds herself alone, in a burned-down district, sitting by the fire in her Victor's house. In the end so far as I can tell after all that's happened, after all the death and loss the world still revolves around Katniss at least so far as Katniss is concerned.
It makes sense that she published this story in three parts, but I think it could also be read as one whole. And the scene in Tigris's cellar when Katniss pretends to sleep, but actually lies awake listening to Gale and Peeta talk about how they both love her unconditionally, and are perfectly fine to let her choose who she'll pick like a carton of juice off the shelf in the supermarket, and who she'll dump on his ass? He saw that kiss and knew. The world outside this wall is an ever-changing maze who has horrifying creatures The Grievers. Katniss has the personality of a vegetable 2. Suzanne lives with her family in Connecticut. Mockingjays become a link between Katniss and Rue, with the two using the birds to communicate.
The Hunger Games Book Summary — Plot The hunger games is a novel that unfolds in Panem, an apocalyptic world. It's not about these two boys, but - as very explicitly stated - about what they represent. She blames herself for the deaths of thousands of her friends and neighbors. I suppose it all comes down to expectations and as mine were not met, I feel vastly underwhelmed, and a little bit devastated. Do you give just what you got? It's actually not the fact that the characters died that bothered me. The hospital burned down in district eight.
I'll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in things because I'm afraid it could be taken away. Each year, as a punishment for the failed rebellion by District 13, the 12 Panem Districts are forced to pay tribute to the ruthless Capitol regime. However, Suzanne Collins did take a risk with her approach to this finale, and its either love or hate. . My last reason is not that as Gale and Peeta changed, Katniss did too, and so did the world they lived in. Though Katniss doesn't desire the spotlight and never wanted power she finally agrees to take on the burden of leading a rebellion.
Instead, it is a story about suffering and pain of a young woman devastated and broken by horrendous things that have happened to her. Peeta knows what it's like to be used and broken, while Gale never did. The plot of this book is set in post-apocalyptic world of Chicago and the three books under this series are Divergent, Insurgent and Allegiant. What makes the hunger games a more thrilling story is the games win or die rule. The Hunger Games Book Summary — Theme The novel is set in a dystopian kind of world. I was expecting carnage, war, suffering, and terror seen through the eyes of our previous heroine Katniss and hero Peeta. It is just terrible on every level.
For one, that formula is designed to keep the people content, but the people of Panem are decidedly not content, at least not in the poor districts. How realistic is it to expect a child damaged by hunger, oppression, and violence she had to witness and take a part in, and thrown into the midst of all kinds of political intrigue, to achieve that? I loved The Hunger Games; it was fast-paced, thrilling, suspenseful. She is too human for that. Give up, and stop caring, because nothing good will ever come of trying. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. And why was there no action taken afterwoods. 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.
Think about it: you're sitting facing the person who you know has been fooling around with the person you wholeheartedly love, and have done for years. Unwind by Neal Shusterman Another science fiction novel in this list of books like The Hunger Games is Unwind. Mockingjay was such a flop for me. War is awful and oftentimes senseless but Prim's death was not in vain. Yes, I was absolutely distraught over the death of Finnick he just married Annie! Collins wove in a few questions to ponder. I bought Mockingjay the first day it came out and I was preparing myself for a truly epic novel, one worthy of its predecessors.
