Really does power really go to your head, when one rebel leader decides to take on the Capitol, that said rebel leader will only want to replace the Capitol leader and will kill at all costs to get their way?
The last book of the Hunger Games Trilogy lost its appeal to me, just as the twilight series did…I really just wanted to see how the series panned out and who ended up with whom… this time although the story was set about rebelling against President Snow, the whole time, Katniss seemed to be on the verge of dying, or Gale was or Peeta was…although the people that did end up dying were people I never saw coming.
There wasn’t much Katniss/Peeta romance, or Katniss/Gale romance to fawn over…it was all very underground military training and a lot of internal thinking by Katniss and her trying to figure things out and trying to get over her nightmares. All the while, I just wanted Peeta to be there to comfort her.
All the while, having Katniss, mentally add to her list of people who died for her was annoying…they weren’t dying for her. They died because they believed in the cause.
At times in the book, since we are really only seeing things thru Katniss’ eyes, and so when she is put under, we don’t get any information, so sometimes it’s hard to process what has happened, and the reader is left wondering until people explain things to her later on.
Katniss should have been a larger part of the revolution…instead of just dressing her up like a doll and parading her around.
i’m not thrilled about this book, but i am glad to have finished the trilogy to at least know that it is at peace…at least for awhile.
For my last few books of the year, I decided on some light reading that I can storm thru…I’m going to start with “To Kill a Mockingbird.” I remember reading this when I was in high school, and I think i liked it a lot, but it’s been awhile since I’ve read it, and today when I went to the bookstore to browse…I decided to pick it up to re-read. for 2 reasons, 1. I wanted to support my local bookstore…don’t want it to be going away now…I haven’t frequent it in awhile. and 2. I wanted to get back into physical books due to the Kindle failing on me. So there you go, I have my two reasons, and two is all you need.
