One of the reasons why I loved this series was because of Katniss.
She was strong, resourceful, clever and cunning, she had an amazing survival instinct and she knew how to persevere. In Catching Fire, these qualities diminished; she was mainly a pawn, a puppet for others to use for their own objectives.
But she still had some semblance of control and she was still Katniss. In Mockingjay, all these traits are scrapped and we get a Katniss-clone who is angsty and bitchy and whiny wasn't Bella in Twilight bad enough? Half the book, she's throwing herself pity parties in the closet literally! Sure, she definitely has reason to be sad and angry, and her life is full of hardships and tragedies.
But I thought that the Katniss from the Hunger Games, the Katniss who had to keep her family alive since the age of 12, would be able to fight through and persevere.
I guess I wanted a strong victor, a strong heroine, not a self-pitying victim who can't make her own decisions. She was a empty, lifeless pawn, a zombie if you will, who didn't do anything that wasn't directed or commanded by other people.
I was expecting to see her grow and change and I was excited for her metamorphosis. Instead, we get this weak girl who's shirking all responsibilities, addled on drugs half the time, and lashing out at people the other half. Not only did she not improve herself from the first book she was kickass in the first book btw , she got WORSE, an empty shadow of her former self.
At the beginning, I could understand her confusion, her pain, her reluctance to be the Mockingjay. It'd be weird if she DIDN'T feel this way, if she didn't have that time of indecision and unwillingness. But after, I expected her to be strong and work through it, to face her fears and obstacles and choose to do the right thing, to really fight for justice. The best things in life never come easy; anybody who's done anything has had to overcome obstacles to accomplish their goals.
When she decided: "I must be the Mockingjay", my heart soared cheesy but it did! When I heard her inspirational words during the propos, the fire behind them, my heart soared because I thought Katniss was back.
But as I kept reading, I realized.. She didn't grow and become stronger, that's what pisses me off. The post-traumatic stress, the mental breakdowns, the self-pity, the self-loathing, the nearing of insanity.. There has to be a turning point when she overcomes all of this and actively decides not to let these obstacles stand in her way.
Now, many people will say her breakdown is more true to life, and it's what any normal year-old girl would feel and go through. I want to read about someone who's a bit special, who's different, who displays traits like courage, heart, perseverance greater than the norm and accomplishes more than the "normal, average teen" even during the most difficult of times.
Something that, when you close the book, makes you feel like "Wow, they're amazing. I want to be like that. I came in expecting a break from reality, a fantasy sci-fi young adult novel about a girl who becomes a hero.
In trying to be as realistic as possible, I think Collins chose a pessimistic extreme of "realism" to portray. There are perfectly human people in real life in real circumstances who are able to fight through obstacles and hardships and come out on top without relying on drugs and hiding in closets.
They can find more constructive and positive ways to deal with their problems. Sure, it obviously affects them they're not invincible but they don't lose themselves the way Katniss does. Those are the kinds of inspirational stories I wanna read when it comes to these kinds of novels, not this "Diary of an Emo Puppet. Whenever Collins finally gave us an exciting scene, as soon as it got intense, Katniss would get knocked out in the midst of things and we'd wake up to her in the hospital being treated.
Then, of course, comes the inevitable centuries that's what it felt like of us hearing about her in pain and agony. Now can she please pick herself up and make herself useful?
Katniss doesn't deserve the title "girl who was on fire" and to be the main character in such an epic setting and story. Sure, she can be on fire, but only when someone sets her on fire or directs her to be on fire, not of her own doing.
She was soulless and indifferent and cared about herself and her own feelings more than anyone else's seeing as how she spends most of the novel grieving for herself and almost never for anyone else.. What's the point when the main character whose eyes we're seeing through has no heart and no passion? And what happened to the selfless girl who willingly sacrificed her life to save her sister?
The things I did like. I liked that Katniss had 2 seconds of mental clarity and shot Coin instead of Snow the only time in the book when she was truly thinking clearly and acting of her own accord.
The 'tributes' are chosen during the annual Reaping and are forced to fight to the death, leaving only one survivor to claim victory.
When year-old Katniss's young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives.
But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature. Flames are spreading. And the Capitol wants revenge. Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games.

She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale.
Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. The Capitol is lavishly rich and technologically advanced, but the districts are in varying states of poverty. The trilogy's narrator and protagonist Katniss Everdeen , lives in District 12, the poorest region of Panem, located in Appalachia ,  where people regularly die of starvation.
As punishment for a past rebellion against the Capitol called the "Dark Days" , in which District 13 was supposedly destroyed, one boy and one girl from each of the twelve remaining districts, between the ages of 12 and 18, are selected by lottery to compete in an annual pageant called the Hunger Games.
The Games are a televised event in which the participants, called "tributes", are forced to fight to the death in a dangerous public arena. The purposes of the Hunger Games are to provide entertainment for the Capitol and to remind the districts of the Capitol's power and lack of remorse , forgetfulness , and forgiveness for the failed rebellion of the current competitors' ancestors. Structure Each book in The Hunger Games trilogy has three sections of nine chapters each.
Collins has said this format comes from her playwriting background, which taught her to write in a three-act structure ; her previous series, The Underland Chronicles , was written in the same way. She sees each group of nine chapters as a separate part of the story, and comments still call those divisions "act breaks".
Her main classical source of inspiration is the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur , in which, as a punishment for past crimes, Minos forces Athens to sacrifice seven youths and seven maidens to the Minotaur, which kills them in a vast labyrinth. Collins says that even as a child, she was stunned by the idea since "it was just so cruel" to force Athens to sacrifice its own children. Collins also cites as a classical inspiration the Roman gladiator games.
She feels three key elements create a good game: an all powerful and ruthless government, people forced to fight to the death, and the game's role as a source of popular entertainment. She says they are like The Hunger Games because the Games are not just entertainment but also a reminder to the districts of their rebellion.
On a tired night, Collins says that while she was channel-surfing the television, she saw people competing for some prize and then saw footage of the Iraq War.
She described how the two combined in an "unsettling way" to create her first ideas for the series.
The Hunger Games follows year-old Katniss Everdeen , a girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th Hunger Games in place of her younger sister Primrose Everdeen. Also selected from District 12 is Peeta Mellark.
They are mentored by their district's only living victor, Haymitch Abernathy , who won 24 years earlier and has since led a solitary life of alcoholism.
Peeta confesses his longtime secret love for Katniss in a televised interview prior to the Games. This revelation stuns Katniss, who harbors feelings for Gale Hawthorne , her friend and hunting partner. Haymitch advises her to feign feelings for Peeta in order to gain wealthy sponsors who can provide crucial supplies to the " star-crossed lovers " during the Games.
In the arena, Katniss allies with Rue , a young tribute from District 11 who reminds Katniss of her kid sister. When Rue is killed, Katniss places flowers around her body as an act of defiance toward the Capitol. Then the remaining tributes are alerted to a rule change that allows tributes from the same district to win as a team. Katniss finds a seriously wounded Peeta and nurses him back to health. When all of the other tributes are dead, the rule change is abruptly revoked.
With neither willing to kill the other, Katniss comes up with a solution: a double suicide by eating poisonous berries.Everything she did was for show, for a propo or campaign or whatever.
Katniss, after seeing first-hand the destruction wrought on her district, agrees to become the "Mockingjay", the symbol of the rebellion.
The Hunger Games
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. Her fellow tribute from District 12 is Peeta, a boy with whom she soon develops a complicated relationship.
I wasn't let down by Catching Fire though; I figured it was just a transition novel, build-up to what would undoubtedly be a mindblowing, epic conclusion in Mockingjay. How does A phenomenal bestselling trilogy of young adult novels. Why do they accept him when they start hunting as a group?
