I also heard a few people express disappointment in the final outcome of the Katniss/Peeta storyline. I've read people's reviews taking problem with how Katniss and Peeta are represented at the finish of Mockingjay, asking " Where's the passion? " Passion? Are they insane? First of all, the story is advised in first person by way of a character who is of course certainly not comfortable being demonstrative and doesn't respond well to people who are. Right now there was never going to be a hearts/candy/flowers declaration taking place here. Peeta has a borderline obssessive love for Katniss throughout almost all of the trilogy. The way I read the story, by the finish of the first Hunger Games, she returns the feeling. Although not wanting to think why she will the things she does, or to state it aloud, she expresses it in several ways throughout the remainder of the trilogy, there really is no doubt. Despite the fact that she is suffering major PTSD, she agrees to try to get the stress of being the symbol of trend and have a front line role to bring him or her back. Regardless of the amount of trauma they both endure, they still eventually turn back to each other. Gale was obviously a strong figure, but he previously not eliminated through what Katniss performed in the arena and would never have been able to understand that part of her. The time she spends clinging to him and avoiding Peeta is essentially an effort to return to the person she was before the games (which was never going to happen). Peeta was your walking, living, breathing reminder of the injury endured. I thought it telling that Peeta came back to Region 12. Such as Gale, he could have eliminated anywhere when it was all over, yet this individual went where Katniss was. Really, Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch needed the other to become human again (or as human as they were ever going to be). Katniss reminded me of uncles I had who, when they returned from war, sat in a darkened room, staring at a wall day after day for over a year before they could handle being among the living again.
I'll admit part of me would have liked President Snow's death to be more than it was. Thinking about the amount of suffering he caused, part of me is bloodthirsty enough to have desired him to suffer a great deal more. There are also figures I would have liked to survive (Finnick, Cinna, and Prim to name a few), but their deaths helped to illustrate the randomness and unfairness of death in wartime.
There are parts of this story we'll never get to see because it is told from Katniss' point of view. We see only what she sees and know only what she thinks is going on. I, for just one, would be considering knowing more about events of the storyplot from Peeta and/or Haymitch's point of view. Peeta's fight back from his memory hijacking would be an intriguing read.
Ultimately, I found this book engaging, infuriating, strenuous, and funny all at the same time. To have had Katniss serene and sweetly declaring life to be sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows would have been absurd. She is with a husband (partner? ) whom she loves and is utterly devoted to. The lady has twins she enjoys, but is worried what they will think when they know the role their parents played during the past. She and Peeta are happy, but remain somewhat haunted which is completely realistic for what the figures have become through., I read many reviews about bad packaging and missing webpages, but the packaging was in phenomenal! The books were in the original packaging and it wasn't bent or anything like! Very pleased with how nice their packaging was!, I'm not going to enter the plot because, well, it's The Food cravings Games!!! Nearby know anything at all about this then where have you been?? This specific book is the better of the best. Addictive, entertaining, clentching, heartbreaking and absolutely everything in between. It's a must read for everybody and has and will be one of my likes.
So onto the narrator, while Carolyn McCormick makes for a great narrator, her tones and inflections were great for other characters, she didn't make a good Katniss. She made Katniss sound too old, when she is merely a teenager! I really think that they should have cast someone a little younger sounding because Katniss came across as too jaded. She performed make a great Effie though!!!
Despite this, I would still absolutely recommend the audio tracks to people. This series is one of any kind and no matter which way you read it you will instantly love it!!!, My midsection school students greatly loved The Hunger Games series... until Mockingjay. Both the first book and Catching Fire kept them employed. I used this documented version of the guide along with hard replicates. The reader is fairly soothing after a while, even when describing a story packed with action, but I did find this to be a useful tool when teaching the novel., Search the word "DISAPPOINTED" through all the reviews. Actually a lot of positive reviews start out with, "I was dissatisfied with the ending at first but, later I decided I was wrong... " I'm sorry, but in this case, if it seems like the ending sucks, it sucks.
Nevertheless the first two publications were good right? SURE. So, from there most likely probably left thinking, "Now we have a team of the very proven, charismatic, skilled assassins escape, join a rebellion, and get ready to use their command and warfare skills to bring an finish to hundreds of years of horrible oppression! Within that is a tense love triangle and characters evolving in important ways. Simply imagine how great this could have been! Just how could you go wrong with such a promising premise?! However it does go wrong. If you liked the first books, this probably *isn't the ending you're searching for*. This shows Collins is skilled when dealing with a smaller story with a more focussed group of characters, but something as large in scope as a whole WAR is outside her safe place.
Inside the end, the history arc of Katnis Everdeen is not satisfying. Mockingjay spends time in the wrong places, has characters' history arcs finish abruptly without payoff or meaning, and it is even realistically flawed. Even when trying to make an anti-war point, it trips over its own feet. As an alternative it really paints a picture of a situation where war is necessary to bring peace, and instead than admit that fact, it tries to piece together the events of the ending to show "See, both sides shouldn't be fighting! " What? I wish this book might get an "undo", and we might get a do-over.
Will be this book Real or not Real? I wish, not real. Sad. Hopefully whoever makes the Mockingjay FILM will say, "Thanks for the very first two books, we're going take it from here. "
