I've just finished the trilogy and have quickly read through most of this thread. A few quick thoughts:
Overall, I think the series is imaginative and Katniss is a compelling heroine. I find TF's OP to be pretty compelling, particularly the ways in which Collins seems to have it both ways by both subverting and relying up on the princess narrative, especially in the first book. But that storyline fades as the trilogy advances and Katniss is made less attractive, physically speaking, and derives more of her power from other places.
As I read books 2, I kept thinking about the Bechdel Test
. I would have liked to see more female relationships. In book 3, I liked that Katniss gets more of her emotional support from her sister and even from Joanna than from Peeta and Gale.
Have I missed some discussion of how Katniss ends up paired off with the guy who tried to kill her, twice? (Yeah, yeah, Peeta was hijacked. I get that. But still.)
On Collins' writing: by book 3, I was really irritated with the device of ending almost every chapter with a one-liner.
Overall, though, I liked the series. Didn't want to put it down, in fact. How long do we have to wait for the second movie?
