i agree that it was there from the beginning, but it was just a small part of the book. i hope the movie doesn't focus too much on that, it's so boring, there are more important topics they could focus on.

I think the 'love triangle' is important, because it mirrors in a sense how Katniss sees herself and ultimately the kind of life she wants to live, but I think why she's such an empowering female character in YA fiction is that this isn't central to her being. In fact, she kind of has other things to be getting on with and can't be bothered which is a really is really refreshing to see.

YA = Young Adult

And just to clarify what I was saying above because re-reading it, it's not that clear I was suggesting that Peeta and Gale each represent a different part of Katniss, and so her decision on who to go for says something about who she is or who she wants to be. If that's any more clear

That is how it was described in the book though, at least how I perceived it. It always annoyed me thinking about that. Some people would have to run around the outside to get to it. My main issue with it is that it isn't gold and woven. That looks like it would be really hard to climb for the climax when they are running from the mutts.

I think part of the reason why people assumed his character was gay was because he's a fashion designer, which is a stereotype for the most part. When I read the books the thought never crossed my mind, I honestly never thought about what his sexuality was, but apparently lot's of other people did. So now I'm wondering did I miss something or are people overreacting?
I guess people are assuming. Cinna is a really popular character, but he is never fleshed out in the books. His only physical description is being young, having brown hair and wearing gold eyeliner. The only thing we know about him as a person was that he treated Katniss well, despite not having to, was really talented and [spoiler] was part of the rebellion. Sexuality, or any aspect of his personal life, was never discussed.

So yeah, just last week I finished the series, loved the first two. [spoiler]I was not happy with the ending at ALL. It all happened so fast, and not in a good way, she could've had at least 5 more chapters to finish, it was like she just wanted to finish the book.

But aside from that, the series was different, and pretty good. Hopefully it'll get the fame that Twilight/HP did. But it deserves it. These three, Jennifer, Lia, and Josh are going to be EVERYWHERE.

Does anyone else think that Evandro Soldati would be a good Finnick? I know Evandro isn't an actor, but that's the image that came to my head when they were explaining Finnick.

Here's Peeta's interview scene:

Any doubt I had in him as Peeta is gone. He delivered every line perfectly, just like I imagined it.
This movie truly looks like it's gonna be absolutely fantastic.

the interview is just ... WOW ...

However, after just finishing reading the third book I am still considering if I will go see the movies at all
