11:52 am - The Hunger Games
Okay, I'm not quite done with the trilogy--I'm about 1/3 of the way into Mockingjay right now. But I wanted to share a couple of things.

First, kalquessa was right. When I told her how much Katniss was hurting my heart, just by being the sort of character she is, kalquessa pointed out that Katniss is basically the ultimate damaged-eldest-child character. Yeah. So there's that.

Also, not since Brian Jacques' Redwall books has any series so consistently made me hungry!
Current Mood: okayokay

I loved that trilogy!! I'm listening to a podcast about Hunger Games right now!!

You're right about the damaged elder child. I secretly shipped Katniss with a young Dean Winchester. *headdesk*

I meant to get back with you about Dr Who, but now I don't remember what is was about. I think it was you....

They're really good books. Especially the characterization--Katniss is pretty complex for a YA heroine, and so are most of the other characters, from Haymitch to Peeta to Finnick.

I secretly shipped Katniss with a young Dean Winchester.

LOL. I don't think I could do that, because she's basically just his female mirror image! I don't know which of them is more damaged (maybe Katniss, but only by a bit).

Was it kalquessa you were going to get back to re: Dr. Who? She had a recent post....

No lie. I was a bit overwhelmed by that by the time I got to the middle of Mockingjay.
