Mockingjay Essay

1107 words - 5 pages

Katniss seems to change a lot in all three books, there are many sides to Katniss some being agitated, angry, and gentle. Katniss has dark brown hair and Brown eyes. Throughout the book Katniss is almost always on a script when speaking aloud, she is creating videos or “propos” to bring down the capitol. She is mainly trying to get all the districts on her side when they battle the capitol. She uses President Snow’s words to bring him down, like when she tells all of the districts and possibly the capitol that President Snow told her that the capitol is very fragile (meaning that the districts provide the capitol with food, water, building materials, and Peacekeepers) without the districts the Capitol will either learn to farm and mine or they will die off completely.

Meanwhile Katniss is visiting the bombed districts to comfort the people. Peeta on the other hand is forced to try to call off the rebellion by President Snow, and if he does something he wasn’t told to do he will be torchered until he gave in.
