All’s Fair In Love and War

Hello Dear Followers,

Katniss and Peeta in the movie adaptation of "The Hunger Games"

I’ve finished “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins,  and I have to say for the most part I liked it. I found however, that it dragged on a bit especially before the games began.  I want to conclude this post just to talk a little about the love story between Peeta and Katniss.

I honestly believe Katniss loves him, I think she is torn because her heart has always belonged to Gale.  While the games were dangerous, they protected her from actually having to deal with her love for Gale and Peeta at the same time.  Gale was out of sight out of mind in many ways.

Now she has to confront how she truly feels for Peeta and for Gale.  I think she loves Peeta though.  I think Gale is just someone she is comfortable with because he is familiar.

I am interested to see what happens, but I don’t know if I will continue the series at this point,  I will definitely return to it though.

What do you think? Do you think she loves him?  I love Peeta he is so cute and I don’t think he did it just for the games, he did it because he has honestly loved her since they were children.

Oh well until next time, I haven’t picked out my next book yet and I plan to see this in theaters this weekend before it goes to DVD.  🙂

Let’s Hear It for the Girl!

Hello Dear Followers,

Alright, alright I will admit I am beginning to really like The Hunger Games, it’s a bit intense.  It seemed the whole preparation for the games seemed to take forever and once  Katniss got in the games I grew more interested.

She is not only in battle with other tributes, but she is at battle with her surroundings and herself, survival is vital. I commend her, because I honestly I would have been dead  the first day. I am glad to see that she has gotten as far as she has, I do believe that she and Peeta will end up together at some point.  If she makes it out and gets back to the district it will be an interesting story.

I found it hard to visualize what she was doing at different times, I began trying to visualize what it must be like to have to sleep in a tree and protect yourself from other tributes, elements and whatever else. This girl thinks on her feet, she finds ways to survive in the hardest of situations.  Let’s hear it for the girl!

You know its interesting, unless I’ve missed it, they are hardly ever at battle with major animals other than the tracker jackers, but they would probably leave people alone if you left them alone.

The book is getting good, but its nearing the end, I don’t know if I would continue immediately with this series, but I would definitely return to it at some point.  Its an interesting read.

I will have my final thoughts about the book hopefully by Sunday.

Until next time…

The Beauty Games

Hello Dear Followers,

As I’ve continued to read “The Hunger Games” I can’t help but believe that they are getting ready for a beauty pageant. Questions they need to answer,  having to look perfect, stand out among their competition with their looks and abilities. The only difference is that there are men competing too.

While I am still at the part where they are preparing for the games to begin, I find this book to be boring.  I am not feeling this book, I am not sure if it’s all the hype that surrounds it, but I just don’t see what the big deal is. Maybe by the time I finish the book, I will think differently.

I feel Cinna is on her side in some way, I feel he has a deeper story than he relays right now.  I also feel Peeta and Katniss will develop a deeper connection than they know right now, I feel she will find that she loves him and it will be difficult to go up against him and furthermore her love for Peeta will be at odds for her love for Gale. (BTW, what is with the names?)

The next chapter I almost feel they will tell Katniss she along with other females in the competition need to wear a swimsuit to gain sponsorship.  I mean really.

Until next time…
