Worse yet, I fear this may just have been a result of Snow's manipulation, not her own decision.

I also feel the significance and bravery of this smart moment was rendered meaningless by her immediate cowardly reaction: instead of having conviction in her action and facing the consequences, she scrambled frantically to find the most painless and quickest way to kill herself.

She never once in the book acknowledges all she has to live for and all the positive things she still has in her life. When a character's will to survive is absent through a whole novel, I as a reader have no desire for them to live either; grant their wish already!

But to continue on.. I liked learning about more of the characters in depth: Gale who I grew to love even more in this book , Finnick, Annie, Boggs, Johanna, etc. I liked the ending passages fitting and beautifully haunting and I liked the songs The Hanging Tree and the meadow one.

There are probably some other things that I'll update this review with once disappointment and frustration are no longer clouding my brain.

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. When reading for enjoyment starts feeling like a chore, that's the ultimate sign that I dislike the book. I kept waiting, I was so sure it would happen any minute, for the story-changing moment when Katniss would pick herself up and say "Enough is enough. This book seriously dragged and dragged and dragged, and just got slower and slower until everyone started dropping dead towards the last quarter of the book.

The Hunger Games, I couldn't put it down; for this, I dreaded picking it up to finish it. I did tons of things in between reading this book doing my nails, watching TV, taking a walk, etc because I couldn't read it in one sitting without wanting to gouge my eyes out. It was the same reoccurring theme: Katniss was manipulated and controlled by everyone around her and she didn't think or do anything of her own will.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

It got old. I read all this build-up and didn't get rewarded for it.

And even though the rebels triumphed, I didn't feel anything for them, not relief, not happiness, just nothing. I was just detached. And none of it was thanks to Katniss: her only role in the Capitol's defeat was watching Prim die, getting burned, and waking up in a hospital, where we're TOLD instead of SHOWN how the Capitol fell all while she was unconscious, an occurrence that's way too common in this book.

Again, anti-climactic! During the scene when it really mattered!

I understand the message Collins is trying to convey and I agree with it: that war is awful and no one truly wins. And good and bad are not clearly defined black and white. It got too preachy at certain points though, didn't it?

And I understand that not all books are unicorns-and-ponies happy endings, and that this series has always been intense and dark and a bit bleak. But that only works when there's an underlying message of hope and of optimism.

I felt it in the 1st books, but this ending was devoid of all hope and happiness. Yes, humans are disgusting creatures who hurt and kill one another, who do horrible things because of greed and selfishness and just pure malice.

But humans are also capable of love and compassion and kindness, and I wish she'd incorporated a bit of that into the story as well so there'd be a more hopeful ending. Even in real life, no matter how bad things may be, there is always hope. Isn't that the kind of message you really want young people to be left with? Instead of pessimistic doom and "give up on mankind"? I finished the book feeling hopeless and lost and depressed, and not in that deep, profound way where it motivates me to get up off my ass and do something to make a difference.

Gosh, at least Harry was his own person and got to face Voldemort in the end.

The Hunger Games Trilogy

What did Katniss get to do except be an empty canvas for them to paint and feed lines to? Though I guess since I'm feeling so passionately about all of this, it wasn't a worthless read.

It was just very, VERY disappointing. 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!

I was in a rush to unleash all my feelings after finishing the book so I wouldn't forget anything. I hope this review was understandable and enjoyable anyway : That's the end of the review and you can stop here but I wanted to add on.. Sometimes you've got to think about the greater good!

This is war! Don't think I don't know how this might end. Volunteering as a tribute for her sister, Prim , Katniss finds herself thrust into the wildness of the Games. Peeta Mellark — Katniss' loyal partner. Not only will he stop at nothing to keep Katniss alive, but he can be a deadly enemy. He also has a crush on the main female: Katniss.

Cinna — The clever stylist has more to him that meets the eye.

From playing with fire to acting upon rebellious notions, Cinna has done it all. He was killed in Catching Fire. Haymitch Abernathy — Katniss and Peeta's mentor.

Suffers from a severe alcohol addiction due to being the victor from the 50th Hunger Games. Effie Trinket — Katniss and Peeta's escort. She is a Capitol citizen and has a very strong belief in schedules and manners.

She is noted for her odd Capitol clothes, wigs, and accent.

The Hunger Games book to film differences

Washington, D.I do think Collins is a good writer; she definitely knows how to write and tell a story. In the book, hovercrafts picked up the dead tributes' bodies. Five years later, I stillwake up screaming for him to run. Harry is the unwanted orphan forced to live in a cupboard beneath the stairs, while the fatherless and as good as motherless Katniss ekes out a living for her family in the impoverished District 12 of Panem.

She never once in the book acknowledges all she has to live for and all the positive things she still has in her life.
