On one channel she observed people competing on a reality show and on another she saw footage of the invasion of Iraq. The two "began to blur in this very unsettling way" and the idea for the book was formed. The sense of loss that Collins developed through her father's service in the Vietnam War was also an influence on the story, with Katniss having lost her father at age 11, five years before the story begins. The story is narrated by year-old Katniss Everdeen from District 12, who volunteers for the 74th Hunger Games in place of her year-old sister, Primrose. The male tribute is Peeta Mellark , a former schoolmate of Katniss who once gave her bread from his family's bakery when her family was starving.

Anything else would have been unrealistic. Kindle Edition Verified download. Before reading The Hunger Games trilogy, I had more than a few people tell me the first two books were good, but the last one was lacking. I couldn't disagree more. The story is harsh, gruesome, and bleak.
It had to be. It's a first person account of an individual who has survived two Hunger Games and plays a major role in a revolution. Of course it's going to be brutal. Had the story drawn to a close with Katniss standing majestically with trumpets blaring and flags waving, it would have been completely unrealistic.
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. 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. The appeal of the shared notes and highlights stems from what's enjoyable about physical books: picking up a secondhand book or finding a novel in a library, flicking through and finding evidence of who has read it before you.
Notes in the margins, underlined passages: an affirmation from a previous reader that certain lines are particularly profound can add an extra edge to your journey through the pages. Or if you're a particularly lazy student, knowing which passages have caught previous readers' eyes is a boon. As an act of intellectual voyeurism, this is all good fun.
But it also feeds into a greater appreciation of novels: the high volume of highlighting in teenage fiction is symptomatic of a need to connect. Alarmists who claim that the young don't read nowadays may be amazed at the evidence in Kindle's highlights chart of how teenagers linger over fiction.
And it's also social: people can see anything you highlight, so picking out passages is an expression of your better self. It's a mindful way of reading, but also quite public.
When highlighting or annotating any part of an ebook, the eyes of dozens of other future readers are peering over your shoulder. The five most highlighted passages 1. Because sometimes things happen to people and they're not equipped to deal with them.
