Synopsis from goodreads. Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.
Well... I felt it was very anti-climatic. She tied up all the loose ends. She ended up with who I wanted her to. And I think I was expecting some big, romantic, lost-love moment, but its a middle grade fiction and not teen fiction...love is not that important but I am a sap. Guilty.
Back to tying it all up. Wow does she cover it all from her mother, to Prim, to Gale, to Coin, to Snow, to Finnick, to Haymitch. Everyone. That was satisfying. How often to do you read the end of a series and not get all your answers. I find it to be super frustrating unless there is going to be another...
DID NOT SEE PEETA HATING KATNISS! All caps shows my shock for those of you who don't know me. I was super afraid he was going to kill her or she him. And calling her a mutt? Ouch.
I think what was missing from this was the Games. Like the intense, battle it out, combat.
Characterization - Katniss I really feel is unfeeling. She's very, i don't know, but she's not as driven by her emotions as most girls are and I think that's why I like her and why I don't understand her either. Does that make sense? Because I am not sure it does.
I feel really torn between satisfied and not. Did anyone else have this problem? Or was I just shooting to high because of the hype?
Some quick thoughts:
I thought Gale was going to die
I thought Haymitch was going to have this glorious moment of bad ass.
Um..sorry about your life Coin
Vote for the Hunger Games for the capitol... eesh.
