I finished reading The Hunger Games trilogy at a break-neck pace last week. I'd have liked it even more than I did if not for the fact that it followed my reading of A Song of Ice and Fire. Its good, but its just not that good. But I can definitely see its appeal for a 'young adult' audience, although my main complaint with Katniss is that most of the time, she simply doesn't do anything! Read the book and tell me I'm wrong. But yeah, she's a super-woman compared to Bella, so I guess its not all that bad.
My major take-away from the book is this: Katniss Everdeen is a female Vijay Deenanath Chauhan.
Don't believe me? Here:
President Snow on Katniss (Book Two): Katniss Everdeen, the girl who was on fire, you have provided a spark that, left unattended, may grow to an inferno that destroys Panem.
Anna Shetty on Vijay: Dekho. Socho. Yeh chokra aaj chingari hai. Kal bada bankar hum sabko zinda jala diya toh kya karenge?
