I prefer President snow even though i hate both of them. I find President Snow just a bit more likeable and not as harsh as Jeanine! I like Madge's dad more than president snow though

President Snow is so despicable! He is very creepy with his white roses and he disgusts me so much.. President Coin wasn't much better!

I didnt picture him like that either. it was somewhat different.
and yes i can agree that he was a bit more likable. In the end I almost ended up feeling sorry for him. almost

true indeed president Coin was pretty much worse than Snow. just the whole idea of killing others for entertainment ticks me off. regardless of who the president was at the time.

oh i love gale but the third book made me like him less :O


Renee | 176 comments kevinjonaslover.♥ wrote: "oh i love gale but the third book made me like him less :O"

oh for sure. i swear I was so close to crying with the whole thing that happened to Prim. Though, in my opinion, I got the impression that she was meant to die from the start. that's probably an obvious statement. but yeah..

same! i already got one of the songs but i dont really like it


Louie Sedano (louiestarr) I hate them both. Although both of them is after power President Snow is after the centralization of power in the capitol while Jeanine is using her knowledge to gain power by influencing and using other people. Jeanine is more brilliant but President Snow is more despicable.


Renee | 176 comments Louie Sedano wrote: "I hate them both. Although both of them is after power President Snow is after the centralization of power in the capitol while Jeanine is using her knowledge to gain power by influencing and using..."

Agreed. they both have their own personal traits and intentions that make you want to dislike them equally.
Oh goodness I just had a thought, What if they were working together in the same story? O:

I like them both the same. but divergent has a slight lead. haha

Hm I really can't decide between the two! At firs I liked Divergent more but recently reread Hunger Games and now I'm unsure!


I would love to see a combination of dynopsia societies! Maybe Suzzane collins and Veronica Roth could write a collaboration?

Yeah, I know what you mean. I think theyre just highly likable in their own plot lines. Then again, Divergent is still on its first book while Hunger Games has been through all three. So maybe feelings will change as the story progresses. Like I noticed how a lot of people didnt like mockingjay so much cause of the setting change. So who knows. :)

HEC YES! That'd be a freaking awesome book! haha.

Yeah it's becuase the first book was so much better than the second two! hopefully it's not like with divergent and the rest of the triology!

hahaha (: Same taste in books! i'm on the fifth book right now and I'm loving it! Are you an Adrian or Dimitri fan or just neither?


Renee | 176 comments kevinjonaslover.♥ wrote: "hahaha (: Same taste in books! i'm on the fifth book right now and I'm loving it! Are you an Adrian or Dimitri fan or just neither?"

Oh Dimitri all the way. Though at first I was more of a Mason fan before Frostbite happened...I swear I cry every time I read that book. And Adrian, well, I like him too, just not as much as I like Dimitri.

They need to hurry their butts up with making the movie. It was suppose to be released by like next year and they haven't done anything yet except buy studio rights to making it. >_<

Oh I like Dimitri as a friend for Rose but I never felt like they were meant for each other! I like Adrian though beause I think he's so unpredictable! At times he can be so funny, nice and just awesome lol! I like Mason too! I wish he didn't die :(

This would make a great movie!!


(we have a debate about vampire books btw)

True true, Adrian is a pretty cool guy. Are you planning on reading Bloodlines after you finish Last Sacrifice?
Yeah, it was sooo sad. :'(

Yes it would! :) they just need to make it! :P

there is?

I need to re-read it.. the ending felt like a let-down.. (I don't really remember a whole lot abt Mockingjay- I read it when it came out.. and that's seems like so long ago.)

I know! Everything really moved really fast and I didn't even know about half the things that happened until someone actually told me or it was said right there in bold right in the book. I think that Suzanne spent too much of the body discussing other things and the real ending was just crammed into an epilogue.

I totally agree... I mean it was good.. but it wasn't Hunger Games good.. (if that makes sense)

Well he isn't a very nice person.. I think watching the Games with Katniss and Peeta in love changed him completely.. he changed for the worse.....

I shouldn't be making excuses for a killer, no one put a gun to his head and said kill innocent children or you'll die

Even with a gun to his head, he still would have had a choice...he would have died but its still a choice.
