Sorry I’m Late…
Holy shit i missed Thursday, but i guess 00:30 on Friday morning i’ll have to be good enough.
So, what can i talk about……………………………..
Okay i got nothing except work work work, and i know you guy don’t want me to go on about work again. So i’ll just go on to say that i’ve nearly finished reading The Hunger Games, and i was a little disappointed about the finale of the Arena thing in the Hunger Games, i supposed i mean the end of the hunger games, in the book. I guess i wanted a darker end to it all not a mercy killing. Suzanne Collins created a no so likeable character in Katniss, just my opinion of course, and to have the wild man ‘Cato’ killed in an act of mercy, to put him out of his misery from the Mutts that were, doing something to him, Katniss killed him to put him out of his misery, she might have even heard him say ‘Please’, as in ‘Please kill me’. This is about the only really thing i didn’t like, i would have prefered Cato dying in a pitched battle between Katniss and Peeta. But i guess Collins didn’t what to make Katniss a cold blooded killer. Missed a trick there if you ask me. But it’s her book and lots of people love it, so, i guess it works for young adults, or like i said on Google+, those who aren’t old enough to watch ‘Battle Royale’, ’cause this is basically, in a nutshell, Battle Royale.
In Battle Royale, one class room in chosen in Japan, and the children sent to an island and told they have to fight to the death, last wo/man standing goes home. The reason for the BR Act. The children rebelled against the adults and authority, who took offence to this and passed the BR Act. Just to show the children that they have control.
The Hunger Game started as a yearly reminder of a rebellion that failed in Panem (U.S.A.) many years ago, out of the twelve districts, one boy and one girl are selected, and sent to a remote ‘Arena’, a walled in landscape to, yup, fight to the death.
Except, in Battle Royale you see all the deaths, in The Hinger Games, you don’t, not really, okay maybe a few, out of 24.
I do like it, and will read the next two books, ‘Catching Fire’ and ‘Mockingjay’.
On another note, i have 9 more weeks before the ‘Game of Thrones’ season two is over, and i can read the books. Actually i just don’t want to read book two while the show is on the tele. Sitting on my book shelf i have ‘A Clash of Kings’, ‘A Storm of Swords’, ‘A Feast for Crows’, ‘A Dance with Dragons’. And i intend to read them all back to back. In the mean time i have the other two hunger games books to read a a few Robert Ludlum books. So i’m pretty well stocked for read material.
