On the Bookshelf

I've been on a reading binge lately...

Read these in the past week:




My favorite was probably book 2. But as a whole I loved them all! Great story (still a weird idea). After I while I was annoyed with Katniss and her silliness. But at the same time that made her more realistic and human. Funny thing while I was reading it I kept thinking of how there were "team"s of women fans for Jacob or Edward (I never thought that way but I know lots of girls and women did), so are there people in two camps about the main male characters in this series?

Have you read this series??

I loved the series too (but did kind of lose interest toward the end of the last one). I was just discussing the love triangle situation with a friend over the weekend, we agreed that katniss's 'love' for peeta just didnt seem real, it was more that she felt like she owed him. We probably overanalyzed, but I can't help it, the characters got in my head!

I also loved them! I think the first was my favorite. I concur on Karniss being annoying. One of my friends was reading them after I had and she commented that she was very annoyed with Katniss, to which I replied that it wasn't going to get better any time soon. So excited to go see the movie!!!

Read them but I found by the last one my attention span had dwindled dramatically! Still a good read though.

This was a great series...and I think it's easy to find K annyoing...but if you remember how young and naive she is, and how she is being manipulated thourghout the series I think the author actually did a remarkable job of making her "real".

I read them all quite a while ago. Loved the first one the best, second was also good, third one, I thought was terrible. It seemed to me like the author rushed through to tie up loose ends and wasn't that concerned about telling a good story. Oh well. Am really interested in seeing the movie and how the casting matches my vision of each character. :-)

and Rhonda, if the detailed word verification is not 100% necessary, it is kind of a pain. Took me three tries to prove I was not a robot because they are so long and hard for me to read. Must be getting old.
