Plot:On the evening of her 17th birthday, Cassia will learn who her match is; the man she will spend the rest of her life with. Cassia doesn’t mind that the Society chooses her match for her. After all, the Society only has her best interests at heart. She trusts their choices; it makes life easier.
In the Society, citizens are given jobs that best suit them. They are given specific foods to ensure that they will stay healthy and productive. Free time is spent monitored by Officials. But no one seems to mind. Life is simple.
When Cassia learns that her match is Xander, her childhood friend, she is thrilled. She knows she would have a long and happy life with Xander. But when Cassia gets home and plugs in her microcard which should give her more information about Xander, her match, she is shocked when another face appears on the screen, and then promptly disapperars. It’s Ky, another friend from her childhood. Suddenly, Cassia is faced with a problem of epic proportions as she begins to question the Society.
So it chooses two people for her? or does it change?
It sounds interesting :)
No, it actually it supposed to choose one person ,but by some kinda 'mistake' it showed 2 people :O So Cassia is kinda shocked because Society never makes mistakes. The story goes on with the love triangle and it's a very good book! It's gonna be a trilogy just like The Hunger Games but 3rd book won't come out until next year during November :(
As for The Hunger Games...
Who is everyone's favorite charater(s)?
Of course I love Katniss and Prim and Peeta but I also love Finnick and Annie. I think their story was very good, very sad, but wonderful <3
I don't know how many people complain about Mockingjay. I loved it. I mean did those people just expect that the ending would be flowery and happy through and through...like did they even read the series? LOL
Another complaint I hear about it is that "it was different than the other too" ...well obviously at that point there's not going to be another games, obviously it's going to go down that road, it's been heading that way since the first chapter of the first book.
>_> LOL sorry for the rant.
Glad you like the series! Who is your favorite character?
You know, I've only just started reading the story and I'm hooked! (here's to living in the middle east and being about 6 months behind the times) It really is a good series, especially for a young adult series. I mean, these days young adult novels are generally quite blegh, but this one is inventive and actually has a good plot, deals with moral issues and has a good message in it :) I think it is really good, I'm interested in seeing the movie, and whether it meets my expectations...
I haz claimed!!
Toki Fujiwara from Code:Breaker (I don't have a siggy because I suck at making them. In time I shall get one I think)
See... I didn't want to read/see the Hunger Games, because I've always been a diehard fan of Battle Royale. However, I keep hearing about this movie! Everyone says it's really good, and it was well worth the hype. Is the book anything better than the movie? I imagine it would be, because that is the case in most situations.
