Helga Ganguly You mean Haymitch? Not all the time. And besides,what exactly is he supposed to do. Once a year,every year,he's expected to train a boy and a girl,put his heart and soul into saving their lives,so that one of them will survive out of 24-no-not even the 2 of them-but ONE of them. And this goes on for 30-40 years. So he's lost,what? 60 to 80 kids? However strong you are when you start out, the deaths of even comparative strangers that you feel you are responsible for can break you down. And since there clearly seems to be a lack of psychiatrists or counseling in Panem,alchohol is his drug of choice.

i was elated with the chosen actors for the hunger games cast! i loved haymitch and effie's odd personalities and humor:)

John Also in book 3 I believe they explain more of Haymitch's past and like Helga said..you can't blame him really...Besides what she wrote, he had to kill in the arena as a teen to survive and then "other" things happened later. There is a price to being a victor.

i like ur point of view, john. i didn't think of it that way last time:)

Helga Ganguly Killing -how can he be the "victor?" And they tell you a dozen houses were built in each sector for the victors but Haymitch has lived there by himself all these years. So he starts out as that teen who was smarter,certainly,than his peers,already disconnected,possibly shy? I haven't read the other 2 books. I'm waiting to get them sometime this week. But I don't see him as a Cato. I see him as a loner doomed to stay that way.

John He survived the games but came away with scars and as you will find out in the other books he paid a horrible price for being "clever." Haymitch in some ways was like Katnis as a teen...very practical...realistic. He barely won as a teen and paid a horrible price for winning which would drive most of us insane. I certainly understand his drinking. I don't condone it but its his medication...people become addicts for a reason.

John He didn't start out as a loner...you have to read the other books..:-)

Helga Ganguly I refuse to pay the going rate. My books are coming from the U.K.

Chris Effie's my favoritest! She makes me crack up, especially with her lengthened personality in the book! Haymitch is one clever dude uncomparable to any mentor except maybe Cinna. Cinna's pretty BA. :)

I agree with you completely. His voice has a distinctive rasp to it and he can be very versatile,playing evil,sinister,and a complicated sweet Haymitch, all with the same smile and twinkle in his eye.

Exactly.


♥ Alexia -Team Malec ♥ hahaha, lol, look at Haymitch! :P
