Then in comes the army I talked about earlier. I like your thoughts here and had to chuckle when you are Team Peeta and was unaware about as strongly as I am team Gale and was unaware. The group of children murdered on President Snow's doorstep - Prim included. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay--no matter what the personal cost. Oh, he's in District 2.
Whoa this is the Hunger Games fever. It would be evil for any adult to keep her on retainer as a figurehead to inspire the people. Coin has done everything Snow set out to do. They can find more constructive and positive ways to deal with their problems. Throughout the course of battle Peeta kills a member of their squad and it's pretty horrible. Katniss starts crying when her camera crew tells her to say a short line for the camera, to show that she is alive and still fighting.
The Capitol bombs District 13, just as Peeta warned it would. All in all, I am enormously disappointed by the finale to this trilogy. What happens to Gale is a very realistic depiction of what can happen in that regard. I'm honestly in love with Suzanne Collins because she's such a brave writer. Right before they go out into the field, Peeta's assigned to their unit too. Coin adds, however, that should Katniss deviate from her Mockingjay role, immunity will be revoked and all tributes, including Katniss, will be subject to the laws of District 13.
In previous films, Hoffman always played Gamesmaker turned rebel mastermind Plutarch Heavensbee with just the right amount of ambiguity: when he looked at Katniss, you could never quite if he was regarding her with benevolence and admiration, cold calculation, or a speculative mixture of both. Then those three get separated. Fans of the book already know whether Gale walks away from the final battle in the Capitol or is left dying in the streets, but those of you who never read the series are probably wondering, Spoilers ahead! Everyone flees into the bomb shelter beneath District 13 and survives the attack, but when Katniss exits to the surface she finds that the ground has been covered with white roses -- a taunt from President Snow Donald Sutherland. It was rather unexpected since I usually go with the more sweet and sensitive kind of characters. And everytime he was mentioned in the costuming etc I wanted to cry. Prim died for one reason.
No collective nation would be so morally depraved as to watch the murder of children for entertainment; I cannot accept this idea. I guess what I'm saying is that if Peeta feels like he deserves Katniss and vice versa, then who am I to argue? Katniss finds out during the bombing that the Capitol is using Peeta and every time she says something against them, they hurt him. I was wondering at the end of the book, did Katniss stayed with Peeta because Gale was gone? How I wish they will have a love story movie together. Even in the second book, I spent most of my time thinking to myself, why oh why do others have to make all the choices for her? I thought of that as I read this book, would my opinions differ if I seen this on the screen as opposed to how it plays out in my head? She was absent for at least 100 pages before her death came out of nowhere, for God's sake, so her death felt like any stranger's death. Back at District 13, Katniss watches Peeta being interviewed by Caesar Flickerman Stanley Tucci. As they return, Peeta gives another interview.
It's definitely a process but the end is almost worth the arduous journey. Part 1: The Ashes Katniss takes stock of her new position as a rebel in District 13. We didn't wait on pins and needles for realism. 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. That it can be good again.
I kindled it early this morning and ignored my kids for 4 hours and got through it. She saves them and grows increasingly wary of Coin and the way she runs District 13. She is one of the first to reach the bunkers, coming to reassure that Mother and Prim should still be relocating the hospital patients. But Boggs is one of the first casualties. Let's face it, a series is only as good as its last book. And when reality threatened to take over, she took drugs to make it all better. It should have felt natural to the progression of the story, but it didn't.
Gale and Katniss, growing farther and farther apart, return to District 12 to film more propos. And then she goes all hyprocritical and hates Gale. Peeta returns months after Katniss and Haymitch arrived, having recovered immensely from his brainwashing. . I also agree with the death of cinna needing to be more honorable and i feel that the death of finnick was unneccisary.
But the puppeteers now are the supposedly good guys - District 13. But still, she wants to keep kissing him rather than continuing to do so because she has to. Katniss is a different person from the first two books. Given the close bond between Effie and Katniss and Effie's status as a fan favorite, it seems safe to say that she will definitely be featured in a handful of scenes, at least. I tink I'm going to stick to my earlier guess. I had to keep reminding myself of all the horror she'd been through because although her detachment realistic, it bothered me.
