However, if you're simply critiquing the style, I'll go along with this crowd and say that when I look back, it's not of wonderful style. Emotion wasn't very well painted, the words were pretty stark, and a lot of the thoughts in the mind of Katniss seemed very stiff. This could have been on purpose, of course, to suit the futuristic, sick society, but it definitely could've been written better.

I personally enjoyed all three books, despite the stark, empty style; mostly because my headcanons and own emotions swelled in to fill the empty spaces.


and pssstt Nikki Shakespeare is my favorite writer as well
I agree with this

I also couldn't read it again because the plot is rather... shallow. The events don't seem very plausible (like Game of Thrones), so while at first it's great, when you look closer, it kind of falls apart...

My favourite (live) author is Patrick Rothfuss, while my favourite writer ever is Shakespeare.

I recommend Maggie Stiefvater to everyone...she wrote the Shiver trilogy, which are my favorite books!

Smile I have a lot...

Um... unlike a lot of other KPers, I like to read those super sad realistic fiction books about people whose parents are dying or live in an orphanage or something like that. I like J.K Rowling and Suzanne Collins and Rick Riordan... and I'm planning to read the Divergent trilogy and Fault in Our Stars soon. I'm usually all over the map when it comes to favourite authors and books.
