    I literally only just finished the last book maybe 20 minutes ago and now my head is abuzz with thoughts and feelings about it all and I can't sleep!

    I think a fair bit of the books scare me so much, and I feel like an idiot that they frighten me - but it makes me worried about totalitarian governments and with the threads about the new world order I just feel sick at the thought of it all

    DS1 is reading them, I'm intending to steal them when he's done! So I'm in for a treat?

    Definitely in for a treat lambjam :-)
    My only suggestion would be not to judge how good one book is against the previous or you may be disappointed. When I read the third, I didn't think it was as good as the previous 2, but I think that's just cos it was so much more involved and harder to read. But it is a really good book! Just don't judge against the others lol

    It's scary to think that what happens in these books could definitely be a reality in the future. With technology developing at such a fast rate, it's not such a stretch that one day people in high places will be able to control and see everything and be able to end someone's life so easily

    I didn't like the third book as much either! But then I still felt a bit confused about how book 2 had officially ended, like I really didn't get it!

    I've been watching the movie trailers on YouTube and it made me tear up a little bit, I'm really pleased with the casting too, they've done a really good job! Though I had noticed from the movie preview that they've cut out Madge... I hate how they just cut out characters!

    I liked the third book a lot more after I kinda separated it from the other 2. I really think it should have been split into 2 books and elaborated a little more

    I didn't even notice she was missing! But yes they have done well with the casting. I'm hoping it lives up to my expectations. Though I find it are that movies are as good as/better than books

    I also feel like Gale didn't really love Katniss, but felt more like a brotherly love/ ownership thing more than anything.
    Thats just something I've been mulling over.
