In Her Shoes is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Vanya at YA Story Teller. To participate, simply put yourself in the shoes of a heroine you've recently read about, and then tell what you would do in her stead, or what you've learned from her.

Featuring this week:
Katniss Everdeen
from The Hunger Games Trilogy

 

Hehe, this week has a very strong heroine again! I was really, really impressed by Katniss in many ways. However, the most interesting about her was how her survival instincts clashed with her will to sacrifice herself for others. Fascinating! I don't know if I could do what she had done... but that conflict, yet she chose so clearly without even giving it much thought, it made her seem so human and so angelic at the same time. Her heart's as big as this whole world, while she still seemed selfish at various points throughout the story. On the one hand, this gave her a depth and touch like many fictional characters miss it, she seemed so real; on the other hand you think, Can a person like that really exicst?? I don't know the answer myself, so Katniss surely set a new standard for heroines! Thank you, Mrs Collins, for creating such a great character!
