What I realized after Catching Fire

The first two books of the trilogy literally forced me to not sleep and read the books as fast as I can. After reading the penultimate book, I was kind of relieved, that I can finally sleep again and follow my normal pattern and I was somewhat disappointed, I think the reasons are:

  • How Collins never ended the Quell formally, since what I liked from the previous book was the idea of The Hunger Games. I loved the book and will always love it because of the Hunger Games, how I wanted to be a tribute and all.
  • The ending was so fast paced I never expected a real uprising 10 years in the making. District 12 obliterated, other victors keeping Katniss alive after all, how they all left Katniss out of the plan. I didn’t like how Collins introduced this whole new storyline, it’s just so fast I had to put down the book and WHUT?! I don’t know if this is a good thing, it’s not, for me. Nevertheless, it’s a good book, but The Hunger Games is still my favorite.

I can’t wait to read Mockingjay, I just wanna know what happened to Peeta and if Johanna is still alive, I have a crush on her now. I have to admit that my gusto decreased a notch, but again, I still love the series.

    I’m going to agree with most of this. Specifically, not sleeping much while reading the books. And augh. I REALLY HOPE...
