All this pain that she goes though, and so much more, should make her deserve a happy life afterwards. This book meant so much to me emotionally and personally that I hate to pretend that my reaction is political at all. I wouldn't have minded so much if it had been a page-turner that was exciting to read, but trying to finish this book felt like a chore. Katniss has the personality of a vegetable 2. But Katniss has been close to death before. It just felt so unnecessary and wrong.
And it destroys the integrity of the previous books in the series. He was kidnapped by the Capitol. And she has almost nobody to rely on. The arena for the 74th Hunger Games was a large, flat area with hard packed dirt that had the Cornucopia in the center of it. Edit: I just re-read this review a month or so after I wrote it and I sincerely apologize for my sloppy writing and overindulgence in run-on sentences! The 380 pages before that, however, deserve nothing. Peeta's hijacking, Finnick's molestation, Johanna's physical pain.
She purifies the water, drinks, eats, and later rests. The film outfit was: - a pair of loose, olive cargo pants with many pockets all over. Contrary to the masses, I love reading books where loads of lovable characters die in the final fight. I wish that there could have been more happiness for these characters that I love so much. Not that we shouldn't fight, but that we know what's worth fighting for.
It's not about these two boys, but - as very explicitly stated - about what they represent. She feels great guilt for everyone who died. She never once in the book acknowledges all she has to live for and all the positive things she still has in her life. There is such a big game going on and Katniss' motivations and actions don't always make sense to me. Plus the fact that they're in economic collapse and dealing with the fallout of a costly war. Gosh, at least Harry was his own person and got to face Voldemort in the end. Some spoilers in review as I do discuss some things about the conclusion of the book.

Maybe I set my expectations too high. And what's he doing in Distict 2? In the end, I was too numb to feel its power, to even cry, to feel anything at all. He has become very close to Katniss but never manages to get together. Not horrible, just unnecessary and a little distracting. Throughout this book, there is a steady rhythm of characters reminding Katniss of her power and describing her power to her.
Mentor; Heavy drinker Plutarch Heavensbee - Head GameMaker of Catching Fire. It turns into a story where the rebels seem often to be as bad as the oppressive government they seek to overthrow.

They're not going to the arena again.
