Not even Peeta could save this one

I will admit I am partly biased. Suzanne Collin’s epic turned into a disaster in the third book. For one a very active character (in my opinion) became very passive. Katniss was not being proactive instead, I thought, she was being very reactive and when she finally got some sense in her it was too late.

I can watch Game of Thrones. But I cannot read it. I know I’m crazy.

But the reason is, I am a character reader. I could care less what happens as long as the character is there. And deaths hurt my soul. I mean some times they are necessary, that’s totally cool. But other times it just seems unfair. And when I read fiction, a lot of the time, it’s to get away from the unfair real-life situation I am in.

So it bothers me when something happens for the wow factor over the plot or character factor. I.e. PRIM!

Finnick breaks my heart but Prim just made me straight-up mad. I won’t say what happens because…SPOILERS. But like let’s just undermine the whole series in one quick scene why don’t we?

Then there’s PEETA. The sweet innocent soul that was.

Sure in war your innocence is lost, I GET THE SYMBOLISM IT DOESN’T MEAN I LIKE IT.

But at least in real life there are therapists, I didn’t see Peeta going to weekly PTSD therapy sessions, as I would like him to. Especially with (SPOILER) his children around! And technically you’d think they would provide former hunger game winners with health insurance. I mean Peeta didn’t do anything wrong, in fact he was kidnapped and brainwashed. I mean that’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.

I can do a war movie. But this wasn’t that. I’m not really sure what it was. I’m confused. Someone hug me and tell everything is going to be okay.
