Hi all! I know I promised to do my rewards this week, but I don't really feel like writing something lighthearted right now. So I promise I'll send out the awards this week.
Also, thanks Talei, for the Stylish Blogger Award!
This Friday, I got the a hardcover box set of the Hunting Games. I finished reading Mockingjay at 00:30 this morning. I loved it. Really I did.
You know what I love most about it?
The characters are still haunting me. That terrible sadness of so many unnecessary lives lost, is living and breathing in my heart.
And that's interesting, because the only characters that are really explored in any sort of depth are Katniss, Peeta and Gale. The others, we get to know through the tidbits we get in their words and the feelings that Katniss has of them.
And yet, when those characters died, it felt like someone was tearing at me.
Which made me think, sometimes, characters don't always have to be open fonts of information for me to love them.
On the contrary, I think the reason why those deaths are so terrible is because I had this feeling that they had potential to become so much more than they were to me.
And the fact is, in Mockingjay, I missed them.
I still do.
What do you think of the way that Suzanne Collins got us involved with her characters?
