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.

"Maybe?"

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.
