Mockingjay

March 28, 2014

mockingjayFor those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter or Facebook – I cut my pinkie finger pretty badly yesterday.  I’m fine and it was my fault for trying to rush a job without proper safety equipment.  (Always wear proper safety equipment!)  But, it’s making typing remarkably difficult.  You’d think that just a pinkie being out of commission wouldn’t throw me off this badly, but it does.  So this may be a short update depending on how long my patience holds out.

Part II
Chapter 10
Coin is too cool.  It doesn’t matter if you don’t think the Capitol will attack.  Someone in the Capitol just risked his life to warn you.  You take that seriously.
“Even the children don’t resist.”  I’m assuming the ominous wording here is deliberate.
How did I know Prim would go back for the cat?  Of course, I’d go back for the cat too.  I’ve long since resigned myself to the fact that I’d never survive a major disaster because I’d be trying to save my pets.  Also, I can’t outrun zombies.
Prim has grown up while Katniss wasn’t looking.
The notion that even after warning them about the attack Peeta won’t be killed is very scary.

Chapter 11
Of course everyone is excited about the cat.  I assume they’ve never had pets.
I like that we’re getting more of Finnick.  He wasn’t my favorite in Catching Fire, but I do like him.  And I still really don’t like Gale, so his nose being out of joint that Katniss is talking to Finnick doesn’t bother me one bit.
The roses are a nice touch.
And then Gale has to go and volunteer to get Peeta.  Hmm.  I’m not sure how I feel about that.

Chapter 12
As much as I’m sure I’d fall apart in the situation Katniss finds herself in, I absolutely agree with Finnick.  Having a definite end changes things.  Uncertainty and waiting can drive you crazy.  And there are times it’s better to know a loved one is gone rather than trapped in some sort of hellish limbo.
So, Snow whores out the victors.  Katniss’s life would have been hell if she’d simply won.
Hmm, Snow has sores in his mouth from poison.  They say.  I assumed consumption or stomach cancer.  I’m not sure why.
They got Joanna out!  Now to find out if she’ll be ok.
Gale is alive.
Annie is ok.  And slightly more aware, at lest of Finnick, than I’d expected.
Peeta’s alive… and trying to strangle Katniss?  Brainwashing maybe?  I guess I’ll find out tomorrow.
