I fear the debating abilities for the thread are gonna start lacking, all over again. crying
Debating? My friend as I have mentioned to you in the past this thread is nothing more then a popularity contest. It is sad because some YA Novels deserve to be given proper credence to such as Harry Potter. I have not read the Hunger Games, but the basic premise well having historical and literary significance is unique in the fact it places teens in a role historically reserved for adult males.
Exactly why didn't the creator of the thread bother to keep in mind that we deserve a thread made for actual debating, I really don't know.
All I know is that Mockingjay has depression levels to rival the Aeneid, itself. emo
I agree, the author really captured the essence of war with this novel, while still attempting to stick the the "happy ending" that readers come to expect from series like these. No matter what happens there will be resounding psychological effects on participants in any war, and while the final book was depressing, things still worked out, it just wasn't a fairytale "happily ever after" like most people expect. Great story, Great imagery. Harry Potter was an excellent read as well, but you don't get the FEELING out of it like you do with the Hunger Games Trilogy.
