Re: Awesome

Thanks.

As a forty-something person, I guess I was sort of reading them from the adult POV even when it wasn't given (dangers of growing up). ;) The adult nightmare quotient in the books is so high that I barely noticed the love triangle. I was just thinking, AAAAAAAAGH! all the way through.

I actually liked Mockingjay best (Oh, okay, I liked Catching Fire best because Peeta) because of the horrific aspect that after everything, they managed to get themselves into an even worse situation than the Capitol. It seemed like a really true-to-life version of a rebellion as we see them play out all too often. I haven't seen that come up a lot, and it was unsettling to me in a very good way. It was like... if Boromir had convinced the others to let him use the Ring in the war.
