I didnt like Catching Fire that much. I dont know why, I think because it didnt have to do with the 'games' and the fighting. Just wondering what you guys thought.

toukokuu 14, 2010, 9:54pm

I liked Catching Fire better. It got more into the thick of things. More things at stake. Just my opinion tho.

toukokuu 16, 2010, 11:52am

i liked the hg better I agree with Mariah7 I hope Mocking jay is better than both

toukokuu 16, 2010, 5:09pm

I hope so too.

toukokuu 16, 2010, 9:17pm

toukokuu 18, 2010, 7:45pm

omg that would be amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

toukokuu 19, 2010, 9:46pm

That would be soo good.
But ppl, don't get ur hopes up. If it is average to the first 2 books, well, we don't want to become dissapointed.

toukokuu 20, 2010, 7:31pm

I dont think Susan Collins would do that to us

toukokuu 20, 2010, 7:40pm

but still

toukokuu 24, 2010, 1:45am

I always seems that the first book is always the best and then they go slowly down hill.

toukokuu 24, 2010, 9:00am

Not necessarily. Perhaps it is like that with you because after the first book, you over-rate the series, and when you read the second book, since it isn't up to what you expected, you sort of seel as if it is worse than the first.
Just a theory.

toukokuu 24, 2010, 12:28pm

Thats a good theory.

toukokuu 24, 2010, 6:13pm

...maybe that's what keeps happening to you...

toukokuu 24, 2010, 10:19pm

maybe maybe.

what is your favorite series?

toukokuu 25, 2010, 2:46pm

My fav? It ever changing. At this moment, its the Hunger Games.

toukokuu 25, 2010, 8:45pm

never heard of ever changing. whats it about?

toukokuu 26, 2010, 4:57pm

lol, its not a book. I mean, my favouries arealways changing. One minute it something, the next, i've found a book I like better.

toukokuu 27, 2010, 12:09am

lol wow i feel dumb!! my changes basically ever week.(theres to many to choose from)

toukokuu 28, 2010, 4:51pm

me too.

kesäkuu 4, 2010, 6:08pm

What was your least favorite part in the book?
besides when rue died.

kesäkuu 4, 2010, 11:16pm

Hmmm, that would be when Prim was chosen, and Katniss volunteers. I was like, how's Prim and her mom going to survive? How Gale going to hunt for both their families? What if Katniss dies??!! (At that point I didn't know it was a series. Only knew about the first book, and Suzanne Collins doesn't write like others. She might very well have had an extremely sad book, and killed Katniss off.)
You know, since Mockingjay's going to be the last book, Katniss might die in the third. NOT that I want her to, just trying to keep an open mind, so I don't get dissapointed, if, for example, she DOES die.

I hope, hope, hope she doesn't.

kesäkuu 4, 2010, 11:16pm

What's yours?

kesäkuu 5, 2010, 1:19pm

Probably when the games first start and they are all running for the weapons. It was a good scene(exciting) but pretty bloody and brutal.

That would be horrible if Katniss dies!! or any of the characters for that matter.

kesäkuu 6, 2010, 5:53pm

It would be terrible, horrible, no-good, very-bad if Katniss died. *shudders*

heinäkuu 7, 2010, 9:11pm

My least favorite would be when Gale kisses Katniss, and then like, instantly breaks up with her. It was so sad. I was like. " should stay together." (Btw, this is why Katniss should choose Gale)
Anyways, I like HG better because it's acutaly the games.

heinäkuu 8, 2010, 5:14pm

You're right.
He kisses her, then just walks off. No comment after that, Like ever.
He does get seethingly mad when Peeta and Katniss are 'engaged'.

heinäkuu 9, 2010, 7:24am

I think that's WHY he walked off. If Peeta never existed....
1. Gale and Katniss would've won The Hunger Games
2. Gale and Katniss would truly be in love(like, they wouldn't just think it, they would be kissing more than on rime)
3. Gale and Katniss would get married.

heinäkuu 9, 2010, 8:21pm

1> Tru, tru.
But. Would they have started the romance thing? It started cause....oh, wait in the interview, he would have asked Gale the smae thing as Peeta.
But. If both Gale and Katniss were in the games, who would have taken care of the "kids"?

heinäkuu 22, 2010, 10:23am

You have got me there.I guess, Peeta could be asked, and would be a minor charcter?

heinäkuu 22, 2010, 7:27pm

Who says that Gale would have been picked out of the bowl if Peeta wasnt there? It could have been anyone.

I just finished rereading the HG! It was great....of course. =)

heinäkuu 23, 2010, 7:41pm

Yes, but we're pretending that if Gale would be chosen
Of course, the point of the book IS that peeta was chosen,
cause if it wasn't, katniss would never have to save him, or hold out those berries, or pretend to love him to survive.

heinäkuu 23, 2010, 10:10pm


but i guess she would do the same for Gale.

heinäkuu 24, 2010, 7:43pm

No, I don't think she would pretend to love Gale. She's known Gale since...well...forever.
She loves him anyway. She says so.

heinäkuu 25, 2010, 12:19am

i meant the whole berry thing...but yea good point.

heinäkuu 25, 2010, 12:56pm

The berry thing she would do. She loves Gale enough to save him.

heinäkuu 25, 2010, 1:08pm

yes....i agree.

heinäkuu 25, 2010, 11:13pm


heinäkuu 25, 2010, 11:46pm

They wouldn't ask Peta if gale and katniss were both chosen because no one really knew that Katniss and Peta had ever even talked before. I think someone from the Hob would have taken care of them.

heinäkuu 26, 2010, 4:09pm that I am rereading Catching Fire i think its just as good as the HG. I totally forgot everything about it.

heinäkuu 26, 2010, 4:58pm

I read through catching Fire to fast I can't remember what all happened. haha.

heinäkuu 26, 2010, 7:13pm


I was thinking. In the games, from every dristict, there is a boy and a girl. What if it and sister? Imagine the horror of their family!

heinäkuu 26, 2010, 7:18pm

I was thinking the same thing when I started HG

heinäkuu 26, 2010, 7:43pm

I was thinking that would be what would happen. Then all chaos.

heinäkuu 26, 2010, 9:45pm

that would be tragic.

heinäkuu 27, 2010, 12:09pm

>44 HannaMeads:
I thinks thats what i did.

>45 FantasyGirl2:

heinäkuu 27, 2010, 6:15pm

Would be heartbreaking for all the readers...

maaliskuu 18, 2011, 12:39am

hey new topic:
What do you guys think about when gale said to Katniss that he should have volunteered for peeta in the 74th HG. I mean how would that have made anything any easier for Katniss. At least one of them would have died. I just didn't get it when he said that... Comments?

maaliskuu 18, 2011, 5:47pm

because then she would have never gotten to known Peeta.

maaliskuu 18, 2011, 9:13pm

Yah, that was it.

And then Gale and Katniss would have pretended to be in love, and they would have come back as victors and all, and Peeta would live his live seething/miserable. You know, like his father.

maaliskuu 19, 2011, 11:16am

now i hate gale even more..... grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
gale is sooooooooooo stupid

maaliskuu 19, 2011, 12:09pm

look, I hate him, too, but in his defense, if he was in the HG and they played out exactly how katniss and peeta's HG went, they would be together after and both of them would be happy :)... yeah I guess thats what gale meant. Oh well..

maaliskuu 19, 2011, 4:24pm

but then peeta......

maaliskuu 19, 2011, 4:44pm

there would be no peeta.

but if that happened there would be no crazy love story!

maaliskuu 26, 2011, 3:39pm

personally, i like the hunger games for the fighting, not the lovey dovey story within it.

maaliskuu 26, 2011, 5:27pm

i like both aspects of the story...action and love.

huhtikuu 4, 2011, 9:22pm

I agree with 65149. More killing less kissing. lol thats a good motto

huhtikuu 9, 2011, 9:13pm

I didn't like Catching Fire either, and I'm not sure I'm going to read the final book. A couple other people I talked with who read the books didn't care much for books 2 or 3. I may eventually read the 3rd one out of curiosity though later on.

huhtikuu 10, 2011, 12:36pm

you should read! dont give up on it.

huhtikuu 11, 2011, 9:59pm

READ THE BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

its true that its not as good as the first two but it is still amazing and has some very awesome and funny parts in it!!!

huhtikuu 12, 2011, 7:55pm

The Hunger Games. In my opinion, most series have the best book first.

huhtikuu 22, 2011, 12:54pm


huhtikuu 26, 2011, 7:41pm

HUNGER GAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):)YHA!WHOOOOO!!!!!!!

huhtikuu 26, 2011, 7:42pm

agreed, again

huhtikuu 29, 2011, 9:29pm

If Gale were to volunteer for Petas place then no one would provide for their families... He probably considered it when Katniss was up there.. talking as if it were reall... lol.
