Cinna and Finnick, definitely. I like Peeta, but like Reep, couldn't call him my favorite when I realized that he had no flaws.

For those saying Peeta had no flaws - he was in love with Katniss! That's a flaw if I've ever seen one! Razz

I agree OMB, that's why I only emphasized with him to an extent Laughing

When I read the Hunger Games, I envisioned Cinna to be Russel Crowe. I really liked him in that part. Heymitch was originally Daniel Craig, then I found out Woody Harrelson is playing him so I had to do some mental retconning.

How do y'all feel about Prim? Not particularly her fate, but her character. She's the one I felt needed the most development.

She was what she needed to be: the young, innocent sister. I can see wanting her to be more developed, but I'm not sure if it's necessary.

I thought Prim's development in the series was perfect for her role. I don't think she needed anymore or any less. I liked her character, however, I thought it was pretty dumb how she somehow got streamlined into a combat medic as young and inexperienced as she was. Those pieces just didn't fit together.

A lot of Mockingjay didn't fit together....

I'd have to re-read, but wasn't District 13 lacking in medical knowledge? Yes, Prim is young but she would have equal or more knowledge than the District 13 doctors.

My biggest issue with Prim was in Mockingjay. Up until then, she'd portrayed as this child, someone Katniss needed to protect. But in Mockingjay, she pops in at random intervals to dispense wisdom, then kind of floats away.

District 13 had an entire medical program for teaching people. They weren't lacking. Katniss' mom was allowed a higher status (normally she would have been a nurse do to her lack of formal schooling) due to her real world experience.

One thing that THG definitely has going for it (at least for me) is that they are the only YA fiction I ever liked. No lie. I read a series of books in the YA section called Ingo and I kind of liked them, but I'm pretty sure they were kids books in the wrong section. All YA fiction seems to be either suffocatingly mundane stories (at least to a guy like me) about high school or gothic stories (e.g. vampires). I used to dream of writing a YA book that broke away from that and started to inspire new kinds of books. I may have been beaten to it.

I will most definitely be pleased if THG takes Twilight's place in popular culture. Let the vampire/werewolf trend die.

I really liked Edymion Spring and Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick. Classics, such as The Giver and A Wrinkle in Time, are good too.
