Reading this second volume of the story was different. There was a lot of addition exposition here, details about the growing resistance and rebellion against the Capital that weren’t adequately conveyed in the corresponding movie. And the symbolism of Panem is much more clear here…this future return to serfdom represents the current economic trends pushed to an extreme. A small minority controls the wealth, living lives of luxury, oblivious to or not caring about the struggles of the majority who struggle just to survive. Labor becomes just another commodity to be exploited for the profit it can produce, faceless, less than human. It certainly is no surprise that the Capital fears a rebellion.
Again, being inside Katniss’s head gives the reader insights into her motivations and feelings as she reacts to the events around her. In many ways, she’s an unlikely rebel, someone who would have been satisfied with mere survival for herself and her family, at least until her sister’s name was drawn in the Reaping. Now that protective instinct is slowly being channeled into anger towards the Capital, and in particular, President Snow. How she directs that anger and uses it to seek her revenge will, I think, drive much of the final volume in the series.
I'll be holding on to this until the next time I see SqueakyChu, who also wants to read it.
Sweet travels, little book, and good luck in finding a welcoming reader.
