If only Haymitch can hear me (maybe not, he’s drinking again I think), he’ll probably say “Dammit! I should have known!”. After being engrossed with The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins for weeks, there’s now a very strong emotional connection exists between the book and me. That is why I’m a little frustrated when I finished reading Catching Fire and discovered that the rebellion plan went a little amiss.
“I won’t say a thing about the rebellion to Katniss and Peeta, just as Dumbledore hid the prophecy to Harry”
“You fool! You surely didn’t learn from an old man mistake don’t you?”
Haymitch probably believe that what Katniss and Peeta doesn’t know won’t hurt them, but it turned out entirely the opposite. Peeta is now under Capitol’s mercy and a handful of Victors died. I’m not saying that the books wasn’t good, hell it’s really an awesome novel. Probably there won’t be much story anyway if the rebellion plan went smoothly. It just that the similarity of Haymitch and Dumbledore’s approach in keeping their pets safe is not efficient at all.
Anyway, I’m hoping that almost all of you are PATIENTLY waiting for March 23, 2012 because my patience is now coming to a close. Haha. Happy Hunger Games everyone and may the odds be ever in your favor!
P.S. I’m still reading Mockingjay at the moment, even though I already knew the ending. Haha. My sister’s a nasty spoiler. 😀
