I started this book before the end of last school year and quickly became distracted with the end-of-year goings on and then summer. I have picked it up again at the behest of some of my new students and I am very much enjoying it.
I am currently finishing up the Tribute Interviews and I think that I am falling in love with Cinna, Katniss’s stylist for the Games. She notes that, unlike almost everyone else in the Capitol, he seems to be normal. I like his quiet demeanor, there’s almost a charm in it that I am fast coming to like. I like Katniss, too, with her “sullen and hostile” nature; who wouldn’t be in a case like this?
Collins is painting her world very well and I’m dying to know what happens next! 🙂
I am glad that my students are urging me to read this book, this series, since the last book in the trilogy comes out in three days. So…why am I still on here? My book is waiting for me!
Finished, 8/20/2010: DONE! I loved the story and all its pain and planning and difficulty. I cannot wait to pick up Catching Fire tomorrow and Mockingjay next week. 🙂
