I just finished re-reading Catching Fire, and I can’t believe I forgot how good it was. To be honest, the first time I read the Hunger Games series, I was so focused on the Katniss/Peeta/Gale love triangle, that I skimmed through everything else. This time around, I knew who she was going to pick so it was easy for me to focus on everything else.
I’m so happy that I decided to read the book again before I go see the movie. I am a big believer in midnight premieres, so Jon and I are going to see it at midnight when it comes out. Wahoo!
I’m really curious to see the movie adaptation for several reasons. There might be some spoilers for those who haven’t read the book, so be warned before you read on.
Oh my goodness. I forgot how awesome the arena was in this one. I mean, a giant clock?! Brilliant! I can’t wait to finally see what jabberjays look like and to figure out exactly what Beetee’s plan to kill the careers looks like. Honestly, it sounded really complicated in the book, and I couldn’t picture it in my head.
Katniss’s Wedding Dress Options.
I just can’t wait to see how elaborately beautiful they are. I wish we could see a wedding too, but no go.
At the end of The Hunger Games book, Peeta’s leg is pretty much kaput at the conclusion of the games, and he has to get a fake one. They didn’t do that at the end of the movie, so I’m curious to see if they somehow incorporate his bad leg into the movie.
Katniss’s Mockingjay Dress.
Her dress just sounds extremely remarkable and complicated. I can’t wait to see how they turn a white dress into a black one and somehow make her look like a mockingjay. I hope it’s awesome, because it was in the book.
He’s just gorgeous, so I can’t wait to see him. And Peeta, duh. And Gale. Oh gosh. Just a movie full of attractive guys.
