A list of topics to write about can be found here. I’ll be participating in a few but not all because my mom is coming to visit later this week so I must get the house Mother Clean before she arrives.
- As with most trilogies, the first installment is usually the best–the one that hooks you and keeps you going. They usually go downhill afterward. I thought this was the case with this particular trilogy. Looking back now, I realize the attraction of this series for me was the whole concept of the Hunger Games itself. It was exciting and freaky and weird, and then I felt kind of “meh” about the rest of the story.
- Did anyone else immediately think that Katniss would be on a version of Panem Idol when she talks about being on a singing competition at the end of the book?
- I was disappointed with the whole District 13 thing. I guess I was expecting more. It was just like in The Matrix movies when they finally get to Zion. It was a bit of a letdown.
And that’s it. I didn’t really care for the book.
Have a great BBAW!
