Same reason all the victors seemed to gravitate toward one another. He also has The Hob District 12's black market burned down. That's not why readers devoured The Hunger Games. Katniss describes him as exuding a smell of blood and roses. Infact, out of my 300+ books, less then twenty have got full marks. One of the reasons why I loved this series was because of Katniss. His companion, Wiress, never left his side during the 75th Hunger Games.
After the Rebels' victory, President Coin gathered the seven remaining victors and asked if they should have one final Hunger Games with children of the most powerful citizens in the Capitol as final retribution for the tyranny of the Capitol's rule. You see, in order to be a successful leader, you need to be ruthless, to be willing to overlook small casualties and sacrifices for the sake of a bigger picture, the greater good. In the initial bloodbath, she was the first tribute who came close to killing Katniss. Both have been shamelessly promoted and have run amok on fame and notoriety. She won because, being from the fishing district, she was the best swimmer. And he has absolutely no problem with ordering the death of everyone in District 12 just to avenge himself against Katniss.
She was next seen by Katniss as she stole food from the career tributes' mountain of supplies. In Mockingjay, Prim is chosen by District 13 to be trained as a doctor. So yes, I am eating my words and saying Katniss ended up with the right person. I didn't see that coming! He drinks to forget the memories of the , which he was crowned victor of. I wanted to love this.
She goes home and lives out the rest of her days as she pleases and her mother just buggers off too, like Gale did. I was so happy for them. Afterwards, Gale decides to remain in District 2. Leeg 1 continues through to the Capitol's underground, until she is killed when Katniss discovers that Leeg 1 and Jackson chose to stay at a pod called the Meat Grinder, to hold back the lizard muttations. We fight because we are wrong and evil and stupid and cunning and loving and compassionate and fierce.
She was killed during the feast by Thresh after she tried to kill Katniss. That, more that anything, saddens the reader. The bow and arrows did not have a place in the world of Mockingjay. Though very smart and able to figure out that the Quarter Quell arena acted like a clock, Wiress is killed by the male tribute from District 1, , when he slits her throat. Some of the tortures make it worse. Sorry to anyone who's enjoyment of the book was ruined, just go find other reviews to read, nobody's perfect. Peeta and Katniss were declared co-winners of the Hunger Games, but they were forced to keep up the pretense of their relationship.
Commander Paylor From District 8, Commander Paylor commands authority, even as a young woman of thirty. She is dictated to and she may or may not deliver. She offers to help after Gale's whipping, and Katniss tells her to go to the Hawthorne house. This book is a sham. He assists in filming propos for the rebels in Districts 8 and 13.
Cato He is a career tribute from District 2, among the richest in Panem. Sadly, I can't say that I'll be recommending the series as fervently as I did after reading. . Unfortunately, Katniss lacked the ability to act in the way that Plutarch needed for the propaganda campaign to be effective. In the end, he tells Katniss she is in danger from the Capitol and how to get out of it.
In the myth, as in Mockingjay, Castor is killed, while Pollux lives on, alone. Its computers keep us all connected and its electronic gadgets keep us all entertained. Twill proves this by holding out a cracker with the image of a mockingjay; in the book, it is the first time Katniss sees that the mockingjay has become a symbol of rebellion. But, Collins also shows how we fight because of the warm arms and kind hearts of the people we love. It's clearly there, her love for him.
He mentions that he would always remind Katniss of Prim's death, which Katniss silently agrees with. Haymitch became an example of what happens to those who defy the Capitol. I know Collins is capable of power. The last third of the book the assassin mission was gorey and bloody, which I didn't mind. I liked the ending passages fitting and beautifully haunting and I liked the songs The Hanging Tree and the meadow one. In the end so far as I can tell after all that's happened, after all the death and loss the world still revolves around Katniss at least so far as Katniss is concerned. Of course Katniss will be leading it.
She has sacrificed herself for their sake, and wants to make sure that they survive without her. It reminds me of that scene in Ender's Game when Ender is reminiscing about how he's just won the war as one of the greatest generals of recent history and suddenly, in the clean up effort, he's become useless because the adults don't think that the same leadership and skills it requires to lead an army, could also be useful to rebuild a world. Prim has a pet goat named Lady, and works sometimes to help their mother with her duties as a healer. Get off the computer you lazy little cow and go rescue some child slaves! Bittersweet is the perfect word. But during the book, she is always alone.
