There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.

You think you know--what's to come, what you are.
You haven't even begun.

There are a few spoilers, especially in the movie review, so don't click until later if you're averse to such.

What happens to Peeta in the third book is both phenomenal as a subject for YA fiction and deeply dispiriting as it utterly eclipses the reader's escapist expectations. I think it's possible to enjoy the first book without a lick of psycho-political engagement, but that last book is just a confusing downer if you're not interested in just how devastating war is to the young.
I think I will eternally be fascinated by the animus garnered by the first person present tense. I wonder--and forgive me, all, if this is too RWED for the movie forum--but I wonder if the first person present bothers materialistic minded folk more than spiritually inclined individuals. Just thinking out loud here. First person present tense is, from a strictly literal perspective unrealistic. There is no real world equivalent. If you can't simply accept the convention on its own terms, you're forced to wonder "how is Katniss writing all this down?" Well, of course, she's not. This creates a dissonance that annoys some folk no end.

I'm curious to see what the powers that be have in mind for Katniss after her rebellion, though I imagine they'll 'invite' her back to the Games and then stack the odds against her.

. . . sometimes the narrator is a vehicle or mirror for getting us to understand the main character, who isn't narrating, the narrator is there to reflect the main character back to us. I haven't read Hunger Games yet, maybe that's what the author is trying to do?

I realize they probably couldn't explain that in the movie, but it was definitely done by the Capitol to up the sadistic factor.
