[Suzanne Collins] Õ Catching Fire [personal-finance PDF] Ebook Epub Download Õ I went to see Inglourious Basterds a couple of times this past month, and there is that scene where Eli Roth and Omar Doom are in the theater, and they dress themselves up to look like waiters and then whip around the corner and kill the two Nazi guards to some funny Ennio Morriconi ish , spaghetti western sounding music And everybody in the theater laughs, and then the film cuts to Hitler laughing, watching a movie of a Nazi soldier killing Americans It s one of those great story telling moments where I m nice and comfortable and morally superior, until I realize that actually I m exactly the same as someone I think is Evil There was a moment when I first saw Merchant of Venice that was like that, and I was depressed for a month after I read Notes from the Underground because of the same type of experience I don t know where you get that brand of story telling ability, but Suzann I think I wouldn t be feeling quite so disappointed by this book if The Hunger Games hadn t been quite so close to perfect But there it is Must be hard to compete with yourself when you set the bar so high Where The Hunger Games is a tightly plotted, fast paced dystopian thriller heaped with romance and horror, this book is well, a lot of the same A WHOLE lot of the same plot Redundantly similar at points, only slower moving and far less polished Too much of the story is told rather than shown whole months can go by in just a few pages and yet the real action gets rolling about two thirds of the way through the book There were times when the story actually seemed to PLOD That said, this is an ARC and things could change Here s hoping this one sees some revision before its publication this fall Collins is obviously capable of great t
Binge reading Me NahOk, so to refresh the memory of recent events, I watched the final Hunger Games Saturday without a clue who the fuck any of those people are I read Hunger Games 1 yesterday, and loved it Now onto book 2.
Loved it too, is it any surprise It s awesome I actually know and people from the movie now So now that I ve expressed my love for the book, allow me to rant I HATE THE CASTING Not all of it, of course, but Peeta, in particular I m sure Hutcherson is a fine actor He s decent looking, that s not the point The point is he s not right for Peeta.
I loved Peeta in the first book, my love for him continued in the second He s just so good So pure, so nice Self sacrificial and genuinely well meaning without being a martyr, and the on screen portrayal of him ISN T HOW I PICT A 82% Very Good NotesIt s about futility, and dealing with the unintentional effects of compliance, pretense, decency, altruism, and kissing.
Warning SPOILERS AHEADWell, kind of No plot spoilers, just image spoilers.
Don t read on if you do not want to see images of the actors cast in the upcoming Hunger Games movies.
I am officially designating this review as my update central for casting on the Hunger Games As new characters are cast, I will post the actor s pictures here along with the images I find that imitate how they might look as the character they will be playing.
LATEST UPDATES ON CASTINGWOWZA The best photoshopped pic I have seen of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss So we officially have our Peeta Okay, I just want to say that, while Josh is not what I had pictured, I trust those in charge And Suzanne Collins gave her approval, so that in itself speaks volumes Bottom line is Josh is workable As long as they work with Sparks fly in the second volume of Suzanne Collins blockbuster Hunger Games trilogy, Catching Fire Victory in the 74th games has not been all that sweet for surprise double victors Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark And it is extremely sour for the reigning government Katniss had shown them up big time when she publicly defied the gamemasters to keep from having to kill Peeta, an act of sedition as much as it was an act of courage and honor President Snow burns with rage at Katniss for showing up the games, the Capitol, and him personally He recognizes that it is necessary to give the subjects of his government some hope, but Katniss and Peeta have provided a spark to the tinder of popular resentment, and Snow needs to forestall a conflagration.
