Yeah, look. I don't like the Two Towers as much as Fellowship or Return of the King, either. Because it's a damn long dull travelogue where people travel alot and angst a bit and talk and sort of fill out the world and there's this one giant crazy insane OMG battle right there in the heart of things. Just like Catching Fire.

Except in Two Towers, Helm's Deep is not trying to actively eat the people within. And Gandolf isn't a crazy drunk named Haymitch. There is a hot guy, but he has a trident, wears a net, and looks way better than Aragorn.

Granted, the LotR analogy doesn't hold together upon even the most casual of examination... although Peeta does have a little Samwise in him. But, Katniss and Peeta do their As Required By Law (Literally) world tour where Awful Things Happen and things go from very dull to very very bad indeed with an additional pile of badness because this book wouldn't be in this particular trilogy if there wasn't a chance for insane mayhem and death with graphically and lovingly described spurts of gore at the hands of the sadistic masters Panem who, upon reflection, are also very bad at thinking their cunning plans through.

But that is, as they say, another story. Find out! Read the book.

One thread I do like about Katniss throughout these books is, in the face of competent adults with a plan, she's a seventeen year old girl who doesn't have the experience. She doesn't suddenly acquire years of wisdom from the sky. She doesn't become Super Katniss. She stays a seventeen year old girl. And although she manages to resist the charms of Fan Favorite(tm) Finnick Odair -- how can one not love Fan Favorite(tm) Finnick Odair with his intense and unending awesomeness? -- she is still seventeen, way out of her depth, and she's not going to level up through sheer prose. She's Katniss, she's good at what she's good at, she's terrible at what she's terrible at, she's amazing at shooting people with her bow, and the story rolls forward through her oftentimes confused first person perspective.

Middle book syndrome is a downer. Book doesn't have an oooh aaah beginning. Book doesn't end because the book after it has the story climax. It has some especially interesting fireworks along the way and fills out the story quite a bit. The broken economics of Panem don't get much better. Terrible things do happen and characters with actual names die. But it cannot possibly live up to the books before it or after it because it's entire job is to carry the story along.

And it does. Story carried. Mission accomplished. Bonus points if you bought the trilogy because book 3 starts on the very next page... ( )

What does it say about a book when you have to force yourself to finish it?

I had hoped that this series would improve as it went, and I can say that it has...somewhat. After reading Hunger Games, I was reasonably disappointed by Suzanne Collins approach with the main characters and the overall story arc, but I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt, thinking that in today's hyper-marketed and publisher-heavy book world she was trying to get the most buck-for-the-bang by extending the story franchise.

Now, I'm convinced that Collins had no real idea how to make her characters anything but what they were - mindless, unthinking, unreal.

I have seen Katniss Everdeen described by various other reviews and reviewers as "take charge", "bad-ass", or "strong willed." One article seemed to indicated that all reviewers, especially women, were ecstatic to see such a strong female characters.

I wonder, what books have I been reading, then? Katniss is barely even the book's protagonist, let alone any sort of hero. She never manages to actually rise above the circumstances of her life. At the very best, Katniss "survives". And she is so busy feeling sorry for herself that she never invokes any sort of sympathy from the reader.

Beside that, the absolute brutality of the story becomes bland so quickly. Collins took the action movie approach to story writing with the body count racking up faster than you can turn the pages. You don't ever get attached to any character because you're certain they're just going to die. So, you stop carrying.

Hmm...you know, with a plot like that, I think I know who they should cast as Katniss in the upcoming movie: Governor Schwarzenegger. Stoic lines, little apparent emotion, huge death toll = perfect!

I'm probably carrying things too far, but I just found it boring and entirely predictable. There was no cliff hanger at the end because you could see it coming a mile away.

Oh, and what's the point of completely wasting the last 1/3 of the book with another rehash of the same plot as book one? Really, we're going to spend 80 pages playing "Jungle Survivor" again?

Oh wait, this book series has been made a best seller by the same generations that made American Idol one of the top shows for the last decade. I guess they don't have a problem being feed the same storyline over and over and over.

Personally, I say avoid this piece of populist fiction for something with some real meat, unless of course you're the type who thinks "Big Brother" or "The Amazing Race" make epic TV. If so, then enjoy. I, for one, will not be finishing the series. ( )

I DON'T KNOW WHETHER I LOVED IT OR HATED IT?!?!?!

I am just shocked, mostly......that ending left me a bit......let's say eager for the next book (that's a great understatement).

I loved the book. And there's not much I can say about it without giving away spoilers, so: I loved that we get to rejoin the arena, this time with slightly (vastly) different circumstances.....I liked that they went back into the arena, because I wasn't sure what else they could do as the book was a sequel, and the Games aspect was already explored in the previous book. I liked the higher stakes, and the secret agenda every single one of the tributes had....and Katniss took so long to figure it out!! So did Peeta, for that matter.

I didn't like the love triangle, I usually don't, for that matter. I am completely towards Peeta, I'm not even giving Gale a chance.....somehow, I just don't love him. We have seen and interacted with Peeta way more than we have with Gale, I just don't feel I know him enough to root for him. and anyway, I like Peeta more, so there's that.

I was eager to see what actually happened to District 13, but sadly, there wasn't much on that in this book, so I hope all will be explained in the next book.

I did love the new arena more than I did the last one.....it was way more interesting, the puzzle, (it was a clock?!!?!?) I really liked the teamwork, and the higher stakes, and that she was determined to save Peeta, but still deludes herself about who she actually loves.

I also have the feeling that the rebels were the one who rigged the Quarter Quell, not President Snow. President Snow had a lot to gain, yes, but there was no way a whole new set of tributes could have been convinced by the rebels to help Haymitch and Plutarch to get Katniss and Peeta out alive....or something to that effect.

That ending, that ending, GOD, I HATED THAT ENDING

There's no District 12, what do you mean there's no District 12!!??!?!?!?

Is it gone like District 13!??!Then how many of the Districts are gone??!??! Aren't almost all of them revolting?!?!! If all of them revolt, at the same time, and essentially cut off the Capitol's supplies, won't they win!?!?!? Despite how many Peacekeepers might be deployed!??!?! Surely there can't be more Peacekeepers than the population of all the Districts put together!??!

What I don't get, is why District 13 lost in the first place?? If all of them unite, there is absolutely no way that the Capitol would be able to stop them.


I really liked it (I think), and I can't wait to start the next one!! ( )

I'll have to go back and see what I rated [b:The Hunger Games|2767052|The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)|Suzanne Collins|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1358275334s/2767052.jpg|2792775] but I think I enjoyed Catching Fire more. Maybe it's because it's been so long since I've read the first in the trilogy but I was completely involved in this story and enjoyed the political aspects and the alliance between the victors. And I swear I never thought I'd like Peeta but I did.

The only thing that I didn't like very much was the choice of narrator. I'd go 4.5 but rounding up.

Ok, I'm off to start [b:Mockingjay|7260188|Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)|Suzanne Collins|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1358275419s/7260188.jpg|8812783]. ( )

Collins has done that rare thing. She has written a sequel that improves upon the first book. As a reader, I felt excited and even hopeful: could it be that this series and its characters were actually going somewhere?
 
The author describes her wearing a series of Cher-worthy costumes in which she confronts poisonous mists, deranged monkeys, and a flock of ''candy pink'' birds equipped with long beaks used to skewer human necks. Great stuff, this. Unfortunately, such startling apparitions too quickly appear and disappear, baubles randomly affixed to a story that's been stretched to gossamer thinness.
