I didn't read the entire thread because I haven't read the last two books yet (I'm borrowing them from my mom and I can't get them until this weekend) and I didn't want to be spoiled - IKR? Me, saving myself. Who would have guessed?
I have to agree with Jodie on this. I can understand why Katniss is closed off. In her world, dreaming of romance and marriage and children would be very frivolous when you don't know if you're going to be able to even eat today.
My question is, why did the author even feel it necessary to include a romance at all? I was so much more interested in the world and the story, I could have gone without Katniss ever falling in love (assuming she does in the later books). Why not have her become the leader of the rebellion - if that is indeed what happens (I hope)?
I finished the book yesterday and I have no idea who she is going to choose. I really didn't feel any chemistry between her and anybody. She could wind up with Cinna (which would be kind of awesome) and I could see it because I think she had more of a connection with him than anyone else.
YaY! I'm glad you are reading them!
Remember when we did the Harry Potter book club and when you started asking questions that were getting ahead of yourself and I'd give you the Dark Mark?
Well now I'm giving you the Mockingjay. You'll get there... you'll get there... =)
