First things first, I LOVED MOCKINGJAY!
I’m gonna try and put some order in my thoughts, but it might come out all weird, please don’t judge me *winks*.
First let’s talk about Finnick, it was so sad to see that he was so strong in Catching Fire and now so broken in Mockingjay. I really felt for him and I love his character so much! His reunion with Annie was amazing and they got married YAY! Then everything went downhill when they invaded the Capitol and he died! OMG I didn’t want him to die =( And it happened all so fast, with no mourning like it was no big deal *heart-broken*. But at least there is still a little bit of Finnick in his child =)
Second stop is Cinna, I have to confess I was nursing the hope that he wasn’t killed in Catching Fire but was only (ok understatement) taken and tortured by the Capitol and that we would see him again. He was so calm yet so fierce and determined and made a world of difference for Katniss, I really loved the guy!
Now onto Gale, I really like him. He is fierce and would do anything for Katniss. I wasn’t surprised when he volunteered to raid the Capitol to recover Peeta, but it showed how much he cared for her. While I don’t doubt his feelings, I don’t think they were meant to be together. He has so much anger and frustration and Katniss already have loads of those feelings to, so I guess the both of them together would just bring more hatred (not toward each other mind you!) on a daily basis.
Sweet sweet Peeta, I was speechless when we discovered in Catching Fire that he’s been taken by the Capitol. I can’t even imagine what he suffered while held prisoner and the way he reacted when he first saw Katniss again was a slap in the face. I honestly never saw it coming and it was heart-clenching to see him that way. And they way he was fighting the mind control (because let’s be honest that’s pretty much what it was) was breath-taking. He loves Kat so much, and we already knew he would do anything for her, but everything was more intense in Mockingjay. I think Katniss made the right choice when she chose Peeta. They are both broken beyond repair but they find comfort in each other. They are so different, yet so alike that it’s a perfect match.
I was really impressed with Katniss, the way she fought so hard to try and redeem herself of all the death she is feeling guilty for. Taking over district 2 was very special I think, mostly because of the memories of her dad, and the whole invading the Capitol chapters, well I can’t even find words to describe how awesome and exciting it was. And the death of Prim, caused most likely by the bombs Gale and Beetee created. I never saw that move coming. It was intense, cruel, but so perfect.
Maybe you guys can help me, there’s one thing I didn’t understand in the book. It’s when all Victors still alive voted to have an arena with Capitols children. Why did Katniss voted yes for Prim? I honestly don’t get it.
So anyway, this is all that comes to my mind right now, please discuss and add your own favorite moments! I wanna know what you guys thought!
