K is for Katniss
Yep, she's pretty much the lady of the hour, day, month .... maybe even year. But hey, how could I ignore the attraction during my month long tribute to fave characters A-Z? And having just seen the movie last week, I can honestly say I love her even more. It's really not hard to figure out why so many readers--and now film-goers--can identify and relate to Katniss Everdeen. She's devoted to her family, poor as a pauper, and tough as nails. And her skill with a bow and arrow makes every female on the planet say to themselves, "Mm-hmm, that's right ... chicks can be bad-ass!"
I got Hubby to read the book and he really liked it too, although he did mention there were too many girly-emotion moments. lol. The film met all my expectations, but if I hadn't have already known the story from the book, I'd have questioned quite a bit. Anyone else feel that way? Jennifer Lawrence owned the role of Katniss, really and truly. I mean, she WAS Katniss in my mind. She's a superstar!
How about you? Any thoughts on the Hunger Games movie, or Katniss' character? Or do you have another K character to mention? Please share! Your comments always make my day!
