“the moment I finished the last page I didnt know what to make of it, but somehow now Ive gathered some of my thoughts..so here it is
Ive always wanted Peeta for Katniss even though there were times that I thought she doesn’t deserve him that much, so with that Im happy with the ending. At first, I was really not convinced, thinking that she only chose Peeta bec. he’s the one who’s there, who can give her what she needs..but then that’s when I realize that I’m not reading one of those typical ya lovestories where in its like IneedhimbecauseIlovehim but instead something that brings me face to face with reality, something real - we love someone because we need them. Another reason, to make me love the book even more.
I know there’s something lacking, but Ive decided not to dwell on what’s not there or what could have made it better, but instead focus on all the things I love about the story - how it continued to live with the saying ‘expect the unexpected’, because with my brain being so paranoid I was always thinking what’s waiting ahead, but none of my predictions happened. Not even Katniss ending with Peeta (when I was in the middle part,there was only 10% hope left of me that she’ll end with Peeta, and near the end I thought she’d end up with nobody.haha). Also, I love how the characters evolved. It was heartbreaking how they changed, how the circumstances changed them- Katniss and Gale’s friendship slowly getting loose, the new Peeta after the highjack and most especially the Katniss after everything that happend - Again it was too real. And so with that and a lot more reasons- It’s definitely a brilliant masterpiece.
However, Im sad at the same time knowing it’s gonna be the end, since I always get a little more too attached to characters that I learn to love. ;(
I’ll miss Panem, I’ll miss Katniss, I’ll miss Peeta, I’ll miss Haymitch, I’ll miss Buttercup and fine, maybe I’ll miss Gale a bit —- I’ll miss their world
How much I love this series I cant put into words, how much I love the girl on fire and the boy with the bread.. Always, it will remain in my memory and in my heart how much this story and these characters mean to me .
So am I satisfied?
definitely YES. Even then when I didnt know what else to feel , I always knew I was satisfied. Hands down to Suzanne Collins:)
You love me. Real or Not Real? ♥”
