ATTENTION ALL. THE HUNGER GAMES Trilogy is a TRAGEDY. (Think of war and ancient/international stories.) This is not a ROMANCE. If you mistakenly believe that it is about a "love triangle" because there are two boys and a girl, you are wrong.
Suzanne Collins create characters, gives them a world in which to exist (complete with awful circumstances) then allows said characters to make their own decisions and react to each plot twist. They maintain their personalities and behave accordingly. It's like Collins believes we, readers, are intelligent and cannot be easily fooled — amazing.
These books are honest depictions of what happens to children forced to fight in and endure war. Do not look for happy-ever-after endings with rainbows, cute puppies and cuddly kittens. This is not such a tale.
There is no need for Peeta vs. Gale teams. There are no witty verbal fights over Katniss. These are children whose priorities are: survival (for themselves or for others), food (the series is named The Hunger Games), and maybe (if they live long enough and find a secure place to lay down) they will have sex...though not necessarily with each other — other teens do exist in their world.
Lastly, I shall reiterate. If you want a HEA with a bit of zombie love wherein all dead characters are magically resurrected and everyone sits at a huge round table and break bread... Or... You have decided that the book is about one of the boys shagging, or shacking up with, Katniss... Sorry (okay, you got me, I'm not really sorry, more smug actually. My predictions based on character analysis have been proven correct. I iz smart psychologist).
I think that's all I have to say for now. The fingers feel light, or maybe they're enlightened...whatever.
Are you prepared for Mockingjay? Good. Go forth and enjoy....more
This is really good! I had a late start today because I couldn't put this book down once I began reading it last night. Even more excited now about reThis is really good! I had a late start today because I couldn't put this book down once I began reading it last night. Even more excited now about receiving a copy than I was when I first found it in my mailbox.
The event that this short story describes should disgust me—and you—to the point of destroying your e-reader device bF'd up, yet seemingly insightful.
The event that this short story describes should disgust me—and you—to the point of destroying your e-reader device but Alex Severin managed to make this repulsive act something I could read without turning green. (I hope the author's ability to tell this story as she did was not the result of experience, but you never know—they'll let anyone write these days.)
This story is in no way erotic. It is weird shitake. Yes, the narrator is having sex (well, the narrator is raping a male dead body after rigor mortis has set in—having sex is too generous a term) and the scene is described explicitly, but if you read it and find yourself turned on and ready to imitate, you should—maybe, just maybe—consider committing yourself to the nearest psychiatric ward. That said, I recommend you read this. If you make it to the end without hating the narrator but unwilling to befriend such a creep (harsher synonym might be more apt), congratulations, you are as twisted and open-minded as I am....more
