In conclusion, this guy is stupid and really fucking creepy.
Last time on Farla explains why your English degree is worthless, a guy with an English degree proved they will hand those suckers out to anyone.
Unlocking ‘The Hunger Games’: The Surface, Moral, Allegorical, and Sublime Meanings takes us in ever deeper.
In which Farla takes a break from insulting a published author in order to insult a published literary critic.
Back in the misty depths of three months ago, I mentioned in my Hunger Games conclusion that I’d
skimmed looked over some of the internets (but not many) to see what other people were saying. While I was generally disdainful, one piece cried out for to be torn apart. Unfortunately, it hinged on Catching Fire, so I had to get through that book first.
And here we are.
Do you know why no one believes an English degree is a real degree? It’s because of this guy.
This book is not full of filler.
In order to have filler, you must have plot the filler is avoiding.
Last time on Catching Fire, Johanna! Also explosions.
I hope you like reading convoluted explanations for everything.
Last time on Catching Fire, the arena is a clock but the wire is a fuse. Also, Johanna!
Confused? Not yet you’re not.
Last time on Johanna is awesome, Johanna was awesome and there were some birds but Johanna didn’t care because she’s awesome.
Back to Katniss…
Last time on Catching Fire, Katniss heard Prim screaming and ran toward the sound.
Last time on Johanna is awesome, Johanna! <3 Also Katniss figured out the arena is based on a clock.
It gets kind of confusing.
Last time on Catching Fire, why the fuck isn’t Peeta dead yet?
Instead, someone else dies.
Last time on Catching Fire, it seems the series of unspecified disasters included maple trees producing syrup right from the tap. I guess God is dead and, like your average load-bearing boss, taking him out reverses the various curses and blessings he’s thrown around? Also, there’s death fog.
At least stuff is happening.
Last time on catching Fire, Peeta died! ::::D
All good things must come to an end…
Last time on Catching Fire, Cinna was horribly beaten, possibly to death, by the evil government! And now Katniss is in the middle of the ocean as the Hunger Games start! Oh plot, finally you’ve returned to us!
This book is worse.
Last time on Catching Fire, more mockingjays and flames.
Katniss continues to be completely self-centered and a terrible role model.
