i FINALLY got around to read this book after having bought it soon after stephenie recommended it on her site, and i loved it! i'd been wanting to read it but never had time. then i went on thanksgiving break yesterday and finished it in less than a day.
i think she majorly needs to get a new editor, though. there were far, far too many instances where there were either commas where there shouldn't be, or no commas where they should be. sometimes it made the writing confusing to read.
as for gale vs. peeta...i really don't feel like we got to know gale very much at all. i think i would like him if he was in the book more, but since we only really got those few short glimpses of him near the beginning, and since i love peeta, i'm gonna have to go with peeta. for now. could change in the next book if we get more of gale, who knows.
i have to admit, i was expecting that rue was going to turn around and stab katniss in the back. it seemed like katniss was underestimating her because of the fact that she reminded her of prim. i also expected that they would defy the gamemakers in the end, but i thought it would be more of them. at least katniss and peeta and cato. but yeah. i guess it's good i wasn't right, because that made it more entertaining.
i want the sequel NOW, though!
