The Hunger Games did not have a good ending because it went on too long and did not resolve itself.

Example 1: Presenting President Coin as the main enemy after Katniss sympathizes with President Snow does not make much sense to me as the reader because Katniss has hated Snow for so long and changing the enemy to Coin is somewhat of a last ditch plot twist to keep the reader interested. Not to mention that the deeper plot from Coin was not developing, and was not seen until she supposedly killed Primrose.

Example 2: Primrose Everdeen's death was not necessary to the story because although it provided a reason for Katniss not to choose Gale, it created some loose ends that were not fixed. It was somewhat like Rachel's death in "the Dark Knight" because the story was dragging and needed to pick up.

Example 3: Katniss Everdeen never recovers after the rebellion. Although survivors from wars will never fully recover, Katniss' condition seems a bit over dramatic in comparison. Whereas most survivors of wars never fully recover from the trauma of battle, they move on with their lives to a somewhat normal degree. Katniss portrays herself as if she hasn't recovered in 20 years which is enough time to make progress for even the most damaged soldier.

The Series had potential and the first book was great but the entire second book was unnecessary and the third book focused too much on her petty problems almost none of which were resolved at the end.

The resolution statement is: The Hunger Games Series did not resolve itself.

My opponent (Con) is arguing against this.

In other words, Con is arguing: The Hunger Games Series DID resolve itself.

I (Pro) will be arguing that the Hunger Games Series DID NOT resolve itself.

Ah. I know understand that you were arguing the wrong side.

I have six debates going on right now, but perhaps another time.


For now, VOTE PRO.

I will admit now that I haven't actually read the whole Hunger Games Series, so it may be a good thing that I didn't have to argue.

Vote for Pro.

Yeah, I advise you read it, but I also think that the series got worse.

I would accept if I had the capacity to carry on a debate just now.

Let me just say this: Katniss's final action was not an act of sympathy for Snow -- if she'd had two arrows, she certainly could have and would have killed both of them. Her action was an attack on the entire system that both Snow and Coin represented, a system where children are killed to settle differences. "Coin" is obviously symbolic for her being just the other side of the coin as Snow. And Snow was already obviously dying, whereas Coin had a long life of tyranny ahead of her if Katniss had not taken this one and only shot that she had.

It's the only way the author knows how to end the books, example Gregor the overlander.

Change the Debate into an affirmative statement, one that can be argued. When you do I'm sure someone will accept.
