We’re in the city now, and stuff’s startin’ to get real. A few themes: Katniss’s preparation (practically purification); the significance of individual appearance; culture shock; privilege; Katniss’s self-awareness (or lack thereof); and, of course, WHAT PEETA SAID. And anything else that jumped out at you. Ready, go.
(As always, if you have anything even remotely spoilerish, leave it in comments to the original post and link to it here using just the names of the characters involved. The management appreciates your support.)
Next up: Next Saturday, May 19, we’re going to take out Section 2 with chapters 10-18. It’s more reading than we’ve been doing, so if you feel like it’s a bit much, let me know.
