Yeah, they wanted to make Katniss sounds all TUFF and HARDCOAR, but in the end... she fail to stay true to what her character was supposed to be. Inconsistent characterization.
Yeah, I think that's the main problem with fictions (and fan-fictions for that matters) written in first person POV. The author tends to forget that the main character they're writing about is a different person from themselves; the author's thoughts, feelings and emotions affects how the main character reflects the storyline, thus making their personality deviate from what it was supposed to be.
I especially hate it when a bad, female writer writes up some fan-fiction on a male character with first person POV- because not only will the character becomes unbelievably OOC, he becomes about as whiny and immature as a teenage girl who's wangsting at every single thing.
