How are the characters managing?
With this book I think it teaches all of the characters not to be selfish and don't take what they have for granted because you never know when you could lose it. That being said in this book a lot of people are losing their sanity. From not having enough food to constant death. With the constant string of death that is happening all the time how would they stay sane? I mean imagine losing someone that you love and care about everyday… How would you feel? I don't know about you but i would rather die early on so i wouldn't have to deal with all of the madness of it. It's too much for anyone to take.
