Finished Hunger Games book 1 last night!!!!
I don't know how Andy totally predicted the end of Book 1 and was disappointed.
I mean, I figured that Katniss & Peeta would make it out alive. I figured there would be a Love Triangle between Katniss, Peeta, & Gale.
However, my original thought was that we would have seen the "rebellion" start before the Games Ended, assuming that there will be a rebellion. (I don't know ANYTHING beyond book 1).
I didn't see the "rule change" coming to allow two victors.
I didn't see the "change to the rule change" taking it back.
I had originally hoped that Gale might find a way to enter the Arena... Or that many of the tributes would ban together and refuse to kill each other.
I loved Book 1 and am looking forward to recording about it later today with Stephanie and moving on into Catching Fire.
I just downloaded Catching Fire. Going to try to hold off on starting it for a while though. May try to finish the book that I had all ready started when I switched to read The Hunger Games.
Like Murray, I never would have read these books without your recommendation. I remember seeing Mockingjay in the bookstores last summer and wondering what all the hoopla over that book was about. Just reading about it on the book jacket didn't intrigue me at all. Now I can't wait to finish them all!
Finished book 1 last night. Listened to all 5 podcasts today while I was cleaning (thanks...made it much more enjoyable)
I had thought that Katniss and Peeta would live, and wasn't surprised at the first rule change. However I did not see the second rule change coming. I thought it was very clever how they ended up both being the victors. Can not wait to read book 2...but there is too much going on this weekend and if I download it I know I do not have the will power to not read it through to the end! :)
I enjoyed listening to the podcasts - and I really liked listening to the predictions that Stephanie and Cliff made knowing how the book ended.
So glad you enjoyed the book. I agree, I didn't see that 2nd rule change coming.
I'll have to go back and re-listen to the episodes and see what predictions we made along the way. I'll probably go back and listen to them after I read all three books. :)
Have a blessed weekend!
