This is the first time Katniss goes on the offense in the book. Do you think she does enough? Too much?
I think it's important to the story that Katniss is always as "innocent" as possible in her actions. So I wasn't surprised that she didn't try to hunt down anybody. I think she was trying to level out the playing field as much as she could by blowing up the food without doing anything bad. If that makes any sense.
Although I have read other people's critiques that Collins conveniently keeps Katniss from having to ever offensively hurt anyone in the story. Basically every time she injures some it's out of self-defense. I think that's a valid critique, but it didn't really bother me.
Yeah, probably. Rue seemed to be able to avoid everybody else fairly well until she went along with Katniss' distraction-by-starting-fires plan. It's kind of interesting to me that Katniss never feels guilty about it.
Would you have done anything differently with Foxface? Do you think it was smart for Katniss not to team up with her? Or shoot her?
Ok, if it were me,
This better (not) be in the movie. (any scenes you would especially like/dislike seeing in the film)
I hope they do a good job with Rue's death, and that it isn't cheesy. I'm also looking forward to seeing Katniss blow up all the food.
Anything else that stuck out to you in the chapters?
I liked that Katniss realistically got injured after blowing up the food. She gets a lot of injuries throughout the book, but it would have seemed a little too convenient if nothing had happened to her there.
What did you think of these chapters? Do you think Rue's movie death will make you cry?
