I guess it needed to be Prim to bring it full circle though. No matter what Katniss did to protect her the Capital still got her... or did they? I'm convinced it was the rebels that killed Prim using Gale's bomb scheme to do it...which is really fucked up.

Yeah I think it was too

Almost every Book from King is as good as Gold!

Re: The "Book" thread.

I reviewed Rain Fall.

A few hours after submission, the author himself (Barry Eisler) thanked me for the review on twitter. Didn't expect that at all.

Agree... Especially with the "Almost".

Read & liked "Misery", "Green Mile", "...Buick 8", "Hearts In Atlantis", & I think more. However, I was unable to get 10 pages into the "Talisman"/"Black House" stuff, or "Everything's Eventual". I saw him on TV, plugging a new book based around the real JFK events.... No thanks.

From what I've read, King's style is far fetched, silly and without purpose. Then again I've only read bits of Buick 8 and a good portion of Regulators.

I first read about "Buick 8" in his autobio, "On Writing", which he seems to have written while working on "Buick". I had HUGE expectations, & it far surpassed them. Amazing that I like his novels, but his "short stories" seem to bore me to death.
