In short, there's something here for nearly every reader, all of it completely engrossing. Collins has kicked the brutal violence up a notch in an edge-of-your-seat plot that follows Katniss as she tries to fulfill her role, protect her mother and sister and, in the end, finally choose between her two greatest loves.
It is also an entirely gripping read. In Katniss, Collins has crafted a heroine so fierce and tenacious that this reader will follow her anywhere. Collins' fans, grown-ups included, will race to the end. What level of violence is justified to achieve needed change?
How much integrity can one compromise for a just end? To what extent does responsibility to others demand sacrifice of self? How much control does anyone have over the construction of self?
Katniss is the ideal vehicle for this dialogue, her present-tense narration constantly putting her own motivations and even identity under scrutiny. In the final analysis, this is exactly the book its fans have been hoping for. Selected Works Picture Book. I've read people's reviews taking issue with how Katniss and Peeta are represented at the end of Mockingjay, asking "Where's the passion?
Are they insane? First of all, the story is told in first person by a character who is admittedly not at all comfortable being demonstrative and doesn't respond well to those who are. Peeta has a borderline obssessive love for Katniss throughout most of the trilogy. The way I read the story, by the end of the first Hunger Games, she returns the feeling.
Though hesitant to think why she does the things she does, or to state it aloud, she expresses it in so many different ways throughout the remainder of the trilogy, there really is no doubt.
Despite the fact that she is suffering major PTSD, she agrees to take on the stress of being the symbol of revolution and take a front line role to bring him back. Regardless of the amount of trauma they both endure, they still eventually turn back to each other.
List Chapter or Page:
Gale was a strong character, but he had not gone through what Katniss did 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 attempt to return to the person she was before the games which was never going to happen. Peeta was the walking, living, breathing reminder of the trauma endured. I thought it telling that Peeta returned to Region Like Gale, he could have gone anywhere when it was all over, yet he went where Katniss was.
Really, Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch needed each 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 amongst the living again.
I'll admit part of me would have liked President Snow's demise to be more than it was. Considering the amount of suffering he caused, part of me is bloodthirsty enough to have wanted him to suffer a great deal more.
There are also characters 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.
Peeta's fight back from his memory hijacking would be an intriguing read. Ultimately, I found this book engaging, infuriating, exhausting, 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? She has two children she loves, but is worried what they will think when they know the role their parents played in the past.
She and Peeta are happy, but remain somewhat haunted which is perfectly realistic for what the characters have gone through. My long ago 9th grader classical history students alerted me to this trilogy during a discussion on the Minotaur. I asked if anyone knew what a "tribute" was and every hand shot up. We had a sidebar on the Hunger Games.
As soon as class was dismissed, I ordered my site copy. I immediately understood Katniss: Refusal to be a game piece, to surrender myself, That she was in her teens and I in my 40's mattered not a whit. Still, many years later, Katniss and I amble through a reunion - a literary walkabout is still a fresh experience.
This is unusual for me. The films, though entertaining and generally well done, can't compete with the story in my head. Though I confess the idea of drinking fruit juices recommended by s Donald Sutherland voiceover can give me chills.
Peeta's deep love for Katniss and her misunderstanding of it in so many ways - especially feeling unworthy of it - I also understand. I am fortunate to have married my Peeta. He may not have Collins' character 's gift for the right words, I know he loves me always. The other marvelous folks who populate the books are an odd sort of family now. Reading their collective story never gets old. And they always remind me to be my fierce though flawed, self and never be a piece in anyone's games.
You know a book is good when it crawls inside your head and snuggles there. I had little to no expectations when I first started reading the Hunger Games Trilogy. After finishing Mockingjay, I was blown away.
Those questions get you through the first book, and possibly half way through the second book, but those same questions are a moot point with Mockingjay. There is no room for romance when the world is collapsing around you. There is barely room to breathe. There are no good guys or bad guys, only survivors. Mockingjay asks difficult moral questions: Can war ever actually solve a dispute?
At what price is man willing to pay for absolute power? Part of the pleasure of reading is finding them yourselves and asking yourself what the author is telling you, the reader.
It becomes a communication between the author and the reader. It makes the novel Mockingjay even more important because it is written for younger readers, our future, those that will decide the world events of tomorrow. Collins does all this without a lecture, without loosing her characters or her plot, she has crafted an incredibly well written story that I would gladly recommend to anyone who asks.
Yes, I am comparing Mockingjay to a classic. There is no way around it. Mockingjay, like Lord of the Flies, asks you deep moralistic questions through the point of view of young characters. This is simply another great novel that makes you go hmmm.
