Surprised to see Hunger Games is your last choice, lots of people have that as their 1st or second choice. Aha.

Even though the trilogy is amazing, I have to say Catching Fire was my favorite.

Catching Fire was my favorite as well smile

I just loved the whole idea of an "all-star" hunger games. Plus, the arena was waaaaay more cool in 2 than 1. And 3 was just way too depressing and angsty for me to really enjoy as much as the others. So Catching Fire, then Hunger Games, then Mockingjay would be my order.

I couldnt agree any more if i tried..

You really think so? Wow, I'm honored, I actually do write a little on the side, though it's nothing I've let see the light of day really, haha. I guess my advance placement English class has paid off, made me a better author after all by pushing me to analyze what makes literature tick. redface

But yeah, I thought that it would take Hunger Games from 'leisure read' to a book that might be of what I can only describe as 'literary significance', or perhaps 'literary merit'. The author would be making a statement on society with the dystopian genre, and criticizing the unspoken stigma that's placed on relationships where the the two involved have a significant age difference or even status difference in the workplace hierarchy (because most assume with that sort of situation that the couple doesn't really love each other, one is using the other, in it for the money/ benefits, etc.). It would have had the potential to show up in standard level English courses, had she pulled this twist of perfectly. 3nodding

Yeah I think so! Aha. If you publish a novel in the future I would definitely read it and recommend it to my friends. (:

And yeah I agree with you on everything you said. The relationship between the characters would be different and it would want people to keep wondering what's going to happen, and I think that Suzanne Collins would've actually sold more copies if she used this kind of unique strategy. I think it would be more interesting if Katniss was in a relationship with Haymitch, cause since he's always drunk God knows what'll happen between them. I'm thinking...maybe a lot of drama? Unless Katniss starts drinking too.

Aw, thanks~. Glad to know I've got a supporter. whee

I think that if it were Katniss and Haymitch who were paired up, the relationship would have very...real, is what comes to mind. There wouldn't be fluff, innocence, or sugar coating, it would have been a much more adult, and perhaps darker in some ways, relationship. Mostly because Haymitch is an adult, a very disenchanted one at that, and Katniss, before she got involved with the fluffy romance with Peeta and the teen drama with Gale, was actually a very mature girl who was disenchanted to a degree herself. They strike me as the kind of pair who would be almost like a 'friends with benefits' type of deal, the kind to agree that life as it is sucks, then proceed to use alcohol and possibly sex to try and forget about it. An example of what I think it would be like is when she went to visit Haymitch in Catching Fire after Gale's whipping and they got hammered together, one of my favorite moments of the second book, actually.

Aha, yw![:

& Yeah! Probably more adults would be interested to reading a book with a relationship like that. I also thought Katniss and Peeta were just friends with benefits in Catching Fire, even though they didn't sleep with each other. That might've been good in the book though. But then the movie would definitely be rated R, wouldn't it? Even though the movie would've been better rated-R but they made it PG-13 to make more money. And I don't remember that moment when Haymitch and Katniss hammered together, I probably read through it quickly though. And this is why I'll be rereading the series. If Haymitch went into the arena's with Katniss, in Catching Fire, I think the relationship between those two will be quite interesting.
