characters Mockingjay

My name is Katniss EverdeenWhy am I not deadI should be deadKatniss Everdeen girl on fire has survived even though her home has been destroyed Gale has escaped Katniss's family is safe Peeta has been captured by the Capitol District 13 really does exist There are rebels There are new leaders A revolution is unfolding. I m never very good at predicting outcomes Nothing I could ve predicted would have been uite as good as this Although I did get close a very distant close on a few things and I was right in saying that it wouldn t be walking through a field of flowers and sunshine A book like this just couldn t beIt s good and yet not good Because it s good in a very heartbreaking chilling haunting intense way Katniss is a different person from the first two books I found her softer thoughtful and also open granted she s still kind of a brat sometimes But don t we all have our moments In the first two books even though the story is told by her she s very closed off with us This book is filled with emotion and I liked her best in this book even though it s a tragedy of sorts As I m stewing over the novel I read every word of yesterday I think Did I really love it And then How could I love it I shake my head I can t love something so terribly sad and at times grotesue Something so painful Truthfully I don t think I loved it Love isn t the right word It was a fantastic novel I don t think I can come up with any better way for a trilogy of this kind to come to a close The perfect note of sadness and sweetness pain and healing all mixed up in a jumble This book was far severe than the first two Much harder to read and with emotional depth I think Sometimes I just had to close the book for a while and breathe because I needed to stop for a bit to regroup myself so I could get through a certain part Collins wove in a few uestions to ponder Where do you draw the line Do you give just what you got Should you show mercy to those who haven t shown mercy to you Is it right to kill innocent people just because the leaders on their side of the line killed innocent people on your side Contrary to what some believe this is not an anti war book Actually I think Collins is trying to get us to ask ourselves uestions about what justifies war and where the line should be drawn between justice and vengeance Not that we shouldn t fight but that we know what s worth fighting forSeveral notable characters die It s painful and it hurts to read it Some believe that these characters didn t get enough homage But since this is told from first person maybe it s just too painful for Katniss to dwell on those deaths The last three pages make all the heavy intense painfulness of the rest of the book almost worth it in a strange way Bittersweet is the perfect word The sense of loss underlying the message that life really does goes on even when we don t see how it possibly can Sometimes we need a little help to pick ourselves off the floor and start again I wasn t disappointed with the ending but I am disappointed that it s the end It left me feeling emotionally drained and like I d lost something I m not sure if I m shell shocked or simply worn out by the intensity of it all I m glad in a way that it ended like it did I m also sad and a little confused Not because I didn t like the ending but because I simply feel emptied out for the time being I just wishI wish that there could have been happiness for these characters that I love so much I think that unfulfilled wish is at the end of the day why I m feeling this way right now In time the feeling will pass I know but at the moment I m sorry for it No matter how I enjoyed this book and I did I really did I m in a sort of grieving state Happiness was there in the end but it just wasn t enough to compensate for all the sadness Then again I think that was the pointIt s a very rare thing to find a trilogy like this one and I ll always hold a place in my heart for the girl who was on fire pre releaseWaiting for this is torturous I finished Catching Fire and wanted this in my hands immediatelyOh Suzanne please let Peeta live without becoming seriously maimed again either I know it s stupid but I want a happy ending Not like uber happy of course I m not unrealisticbut I just want to finish this trilogy humming and skipping around the house yeah laugh I don t care rather than lying around depressed afterwards wondering what went wrong cause I just hate when that happensPS I m not making any predictions because it feels like either my wishful thinking or my most dreaded outcome I can t find a balance in between Call me weird All I can say without bias is that the ending will not be all walkin in a field of flowers and happiness P

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting uarter uell and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol Everyone it seems has had a hand in the carefully laid pla.

Ns except KatnissThe success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn to accept responsibility for countless lives and to change the course of the future of Panem To do this she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust She must become the rebels' Mockingjay no matter what the personal co. This just in the movie adaptation Mockingjay Part 1 was absolutely outstanding 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 It s one of the best movies I ve seen in a very very long time Good job movie people You made a meh book into a stellar piece of cinemaThose two stars are for the last ten pages which were absolutely outstanding Probably the best ten pages of the series The 380 pages before that however deserve nothing The first 380 pages can kiss my assThis book was a fucking slog I kid you not This book tried me to the point of breaking About halfway through I was ready to feed the damn thing to my dog I m not the biggest Hunger Games fan Y all know that However when I read Catching Fire after its predecessor disappointed me I was STOKED to read Mockingjay Catching Fire was just fantastic I really really and truly enjoyed it Mockingjay was a bloodbath If you re sensitive to pointless deaths and gratuitous violence then this is not the book for youActually I like that word Gratuitous It describes this book perfectly Everything in this book was gratuitous and over the top from the wangst to the ridiculous romantic interludes in the middle of battle scenes and from the candy gore violence to the stupid overly disgusting deaths of several characters who did not need to die 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 It s like she took the sparseness fed it to her dog fed the dog to a crocodile fed the crocodile to a Tyrannosaurus rex cut the Tyrannosaurus rex up into steaks sold the steaks in Soho to a cabaret dancer A bombed the cabaret dancer s house collected the ashes mixed them into fluorescent paint and then splattered the paint all over the White House in DC Because we as readers who have stuck by and read the entire series through need an entire page of Creative Writing Class explanation on what the Hanging Tree song means It s like in the first book when we were constantly being told exactly what the dandelions represent And in Catching Fire when the meaning being the clock was spelled out in an I AM SYMBOLISM manner Everything from Katniss s clothes which she s weirdly fixated with to her circular drier than Egyptian sand inner monologues were painstakingly pored over to the point of ridiculousness Yes Ridiculousness Shall I repeat that again RidiculousnessOne time No Ridiculousness RidiculousnessContrary to the masses I love reading books where loads of lovable characters die in the final fight I love going through that grief feeling the torment of watching one of my beloved friends die a bloody death In fact in my own work I have a death list I kid you not I literally have a list of the most beloved characters and I ve put stars in red pen against all those who dieThere are many red stars on that list But what I do not enjoy and what I found far too much of in Mockingjay are pointless deaths Deaths that don t ensure anyone else s survival are excessively undignified or never grieved for Finnick Mesalla Mitchell Boggs and Cinna all died ridiculous deaths that really did nothing to aid Katniss s bringing down the Capitol Essentially they were all just Mauve Shirts and they had been all along I mean fine If the author wanted to kill these characters go ahead and do it It s actually not the fact that the characters died that bothered me Yes I was absolutely distraught over the death of Finnick he just married Annie Annie was pregnant What the fuck kind of sadist kills that but given the choice myself I d probably kill him too But the way in which Finnick dies is nonsensical YA is a tricky field in which to write dystopian True dystopian always deals with death It always deals with untimely death tragic lives and terrible situations in which people are abused and scarred in any and every way But YA is inspiring to young people YA is a window to different ideologies and isms held up by other people for instance Mockingjay is a clear message against war But YA is also meant for a broad audience of a younger age and that comes with a responsibility to instill a message that yes will inspire but coax some kind of hope out of readers Some kind of desire to be a better person Some kind of knowledge that there are wonderful things in the world worth salvaging and weathering difficult patches in life will ultimately result in a brighter futureThis sounds idealistic I know But this series is shelved in Children s Kids as young as 12 are picking these books up and what are they finding The world sucks People suck Give up and stop caring because nothing good will ever come of trying Perseverance will get you nowhere Suicide and alcoholism will make you feel better No Where is Katniss Who s the drugged up shadow that s replaced her In Mockingjay this fickle doom and gloom girl is not the battleaxe we met in The Hunger Games This Katniss is constantly waking up in hospital taking drugs and completely losing the will to fight for the people she loves Her voice is flat drab full of a whole lot of wangst surrounding the love triangle that during the latter half of the book became one of the very main concerns What I hear a lot of guff about this not being a romance but it s uite clear that it is 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 Brought back some pretty pungent T word memories Gale and Peeta have absolutely no self respect and this scene was totally unrealistic People do not behave like that in real life 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 The person you one day see yourself marrying Are you really going to say Oh I know how heshe feels about you I know heshe has been making out with you behind my back just after making out with me I m cool with that I get it No biggie Don t even lie I know that if I were Peeta or Gale I d be absolutely furious with Katniss I d demand to know why I was being toyed with used even and frankly I d walk away I d pick up my dignity and get out of there because being treated like a piece of chewy candy in a pack of two that she can t decide whether or not to eat is an insult and unspeakably degrading I kind of wanted Katniss to end up alone Yes once I d forced myself to come to terms with the fact that that wasn t going to happen I did enjoy the last ten pages greatly Greatly They were uite beautiful actually as long as I pushed myself to suck up everything I hated about the miserable and hopeless tone of this book What I didn t enjoy was Gale s end What happened to him Oh he s in District 2 And what s he doing in Distict 2 Dunno How did he get there Dunno Why did he go there Dunno How does he feel about Katniss being with Peeta out of default not either one s choice Dunno What s he going to do with his life now Where is he going to live What s going to happen to this character that we ve been forced upon for almost three whole books and 1200 pages and who s played a huge part in the story of Katniss s lifeUhI dunnoI also couldn t believe Katniss s trial just happened without us What the heck Katniss is moping and plotting her suicide gratuitously in her room in the Capitol and then one day Haymitch wanders in and says Your trial s over You re free as a birdYes Katniss is free as a bird She goes home and lives out the rest of her days as she pleases and her mother just buggers off too like Gale did Where s your mom Katniss Oh somewhere This whole thing felt like a sputtering fizzle out of what really should have been a fantastic series Part way through Catching Fire I was considering that this series may even be literary but Mockingjay spat on that This is commercial YA through and through Yeah the strong message about war and the hopelessness of Katniss tries to cover it up but it has everything silly love triangle cackling villain and the fate of the world resting on a teenager s shoulders What s that Oh yeah This is silly Silly Katniss s Mockingjay role was eually silly One minute Katniss is insisting I M THE MOCKINGJAY BITCH and then the next she says that she just doesn t care about it She doesn t care about the Mockingjay or all the stupid TV spots they do or anything really And then BAM I M THE MOCKINGJAY BITCHKatniss got on my nerves here As did her constant use of arrows in futuristic combat What is that Since when was there an explosive that could fit on the head of an arrow and blow up an entire airshipWhy am I even trying to reason thisThe bow and arrows did not have a place in the world of Mockingjay It seemed overwhelmingly stupid for Katniss to still be using arrows a prehistoric weapon when everyone else around her was using firearms and bombs There s also the sheath business which is just ridiculous It literally takes 040 seconds to Google bow and arrows and find that arrows are held in a uiver See SimpleThe writing in this book irritated me The first hundred pages are almost comically boring and the prose suffers under nonsensical fragments run on sentences and huge internal monologues in the middle of conversations It s just damn hard to read Mockingjay was such a flop for me While the idea of exploring PTSD in war veterans was very interesting it was employed in such a way that it brought the narrative in this book to a painful grind There was absolutely no hope left within Katniss and her complete derailment just destroyed any hope left in the message of this book The writing was irritating the deaths pointless the violence totally over the top Mockingjay was a great big depressing flopBonus Time

    I keep switching the rating of this book from 5 to 4 to 5 again, changing my opinion with each reread. On the one hand, it has so many wise things to say about war, propaganda, grief, trauma and healing. It touches and breaks my heart every time, like very few books do. But, on the other hand, there is a large chunk of thi
