At the beginning Katniss didn't like the Government because she thought that they were unfair and thought they were hiding and keeping secrets from the tributes. During the games the game makers tried to kill Katniss while she was sleeping and Then at the end she was still skeptical of the government and game makers and she didn't like them because she still thought they were cruel to their
“What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you” (Ralph Waldo Emerson). To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is a novel about people in the 30’s who show a number of different themes. Firstly, maturity is shown a lot near the end of the novel and during Tom Robinson’s trial. Secondly, racism is a huge part of this novel because a lot of people were judgemental and didn’t approve other races. Lastly, loyalty appears throughout the novel, especially during the trial. Many people in have really grown to be much better people as a result in these challenging times.

The scenes that show Katniss finally understanding the victors rage and the one where she learns about the riots in the districts from her prep team reinforce the theme Collins is trying to convey to the readers. The theme that ruling in fear leads to a surge of insurgents is quite important for the readers to understand because it can help them make better decisions in the future by not leading with fear. To conclude, after reading this, readers should finally know what the Hunger Games Catching Fire is actually
It is nearly impossible to have everything in a book portrayed in a movie. Whereas I still found the movie entertaining, I preferred the book because the first person point of view helped the reader understand the motivations for Katniss’ distrust of others. I also felt like the events in the book were clearer to understand such as Haymitch’s alcoholism and the decadence of the Capital in the stark contrast to the poverty in District 12. Even with seeing what else is going on in Panem, and understanding the next portion of the story, I felt the book showed this sufficiently. Overall, I enjoyed them both, but the book, as always, was
Another difference in the novel that’s significant is the Mockingjay pin that is given to Katniss by Madge, the Governor’s daughter once it’s known that Katniss will be participating in the Hunger Games. Madge is described as one of the few people that Katniss is semi-friendly with; otherwise she is described as a loner who only has time to do what she has to do to take care of her family. This comes as a surprise to Katniss, who had assumed that Madge disliked her. This is an important piece of the book because in the movie, Katniss finds the same Mockingjay pin at the local flea market, and it is given to her by the owner, a woman named Greasy Sae. The significance of the pin is never explained in the movie, and viewers are left wondering if it will play an important role later on in the film. The director and author make many subtle, yet evident changes between the novel and film, which can only be noticed if one reads the novel and views the movie. However, those that have are left questioning why the changes were made, and what to expect next.
Until page 50 it was a perfect beginning , and I had a good time in reading this pages and a lot of something to learn and something make me feel interest, such as, the deep description of the characters, places, and even food which made me feel the moment and as if I were living with them. Also, the way that the author had depicted how people suffered because of the hanger and poverty. Another thing that I want to notice about is that girl – Katniss – who was the ideal sister and daughter, when she prefers to go to The Hunger Games instead of her sister – Prim- ,and when she takes care of her ill mother. Furthermore, while all the bad things that happened to her and all the responsibilities that placed on her, but it didn't prevented her
To Kill a Mockingbird is an amazing book filled with life lessons. It gives the chance to realize how horrible people can be and how injustice can fit into the world. Though most people will leave the book with a different conclusion. It is probably safe to say everyone will have a positive conclusion and a new frame of mind. To Kill a Mockingbird is truly a
What Katniss does is a death sentence, but also an act of true love. “I protect Prim in every way I can, but i’m powerless against the reaping,” (pg.15). There are some hardness situation that we need to experienced and learn whatever they teach us. Life gave us many opportunities to meet new people and began a new relationship, but sometimes that love never becomes true. True love is the love that two sisters have that no matter what the situation is the oldest one takes the control of the situation and began acting us a mother, and with the only reason that she wants the best for her sister, and that is true love.
Yes I would recommend this book. It's sort of dark and twisted but it's still interesting reading about the characters development throughout the story and how Katniss and peeta's relationship grows," to this day I can never shake the connection between this boy Peeta Mellark." The author made up great characters and wrote a perfect story to fit them, and the quote represents

In the book To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus tells Jem and Scout to shoot at tins cans in the backyard. He goes on to say, “ Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mocking bird.” “(Lee 103)”Miss Maudie explains it to the kids and says, “ Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t do one thing but to sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” “(103)” In the story there are three characters that could be counted as mockingbirds and they’re Tom Robison, Boo (Arthur) Radley, and Mr. Dolphus Raymond.
Facts: This is a case about trespassing. Two hunters, Post (P) and Pierson (D), were chasing the same fox. The land they were hunting on belonged to someone else. P had trapped the fox, but then D came in and killed it and took it as his own. P claimed he had control over the fox at the time D killed it and therefore had title to the fox. D argued the opposite. D appealed as P won the case.
Love can affect the decision a person makes. One major aspect the over in both the book and the movie is the stress that Katniss goes through by not making decision that might kill her family. In the book, Katniss is accounted by President Snow and is threaten to not make decisions that will spark a rebellion. More than half the book includes the conflict of rebellion unlike the movie which more than half of the movie is focusing on the Games. Because the movie did not focus on the rebellion, the viewer don’t fully understand why President Snow is attacking Katniss.
