Series: The Hunger Games #3
Rating: 1 of 5 stars
Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss’s family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.
It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans — except Katniss.
The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss’s willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels’ Mockingjay — no matter what the personal cost.
Not even worth all the heartbreak. Everything was pointless. Katniss stays crazy. The whole time. Gale is the only thing that makes any sense and even that is only half the time. Peeta was either being tortured or torturing Katniss the whole time. And when he finally separates himself from either of those things, all it means is that he stops taking jabs at Katniss in all the places she deserves. It was rude the way he said she was ugly and a bad person and a liar but it’s all TRUE.
Also. The plot is drawn out and senseless. Nothing that anyone does even matters in the hands of the Capitol and for that matter District 13! It’s like… these people don’t even have anything to look forward to. They may as well have left their world the way it was for all the good it did the rebels. Literally pointless.
