Hunger Games, Interlude

Interlude. Next the games begin.
We're done with the first part of the book, so now seems a good time to look over what we've seen so far.

Let's talk about hunger, food, and weapons a bit.Collapse )

Hunger Games, Chapter Eight and Nine

Last time on the childmurder evilgames, Katniss was mad the gamemakers were ignoring her, so she shot an arrow through the apple in their roast pig and stalked off.

Then she decides to go cry on her bed.Collapse )

Hunger Games, Chapters Four and Five

Last time on the Hunger Games, Katniss finds out that the drunken former winner is actually going to be really important to their survival in the games.

So they need to sober him up.Collapse )

Chapter FiveCollapse )

Hunger Games, Chapters Two and Three

Last chapter, Katniss' sister had just been chosen for murderdeathball. Katniss volunteers herself in her sister's place.

And fridge logic kicks inCollapse )

On to Chapter ThreeCollapse )

The Hunger Games

(Edit from the far future! This is now crossposted to http://dragon-quill.blogspot.com/2011/06/hunger-games-ch1_1.html Go there to read all three books!)

So Smallbrother told me I should read The Hunger Games, and I decided to take this opportunity to demonstrate the difference between the reviews I give fanfic and what it actually looks like when I'm really picking things apart.

As is usual for people trying to talk things up to me, my brother's description of the book did not impress. "So they're doing it for the evululz?" I said.


So who could turn that down.

The back of the book claims If she is to win, she will have to start making choices that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. I am all about that kind of stuff.

Also, my brother recced it in part as feminist because the main character is not only female but competent, which is actually not exactly a view I hold, so you get bonus attention to gender here.

Well, here we go.Collapse )

So in conclusion, that's what a picky review for a published book looks like people, stop whining about how I pointed out major grammar errors in your fic because OMG it's not like it's PUBLISHED or something.
