How do I love thee, Suzanne Collins? Let me count the ways.
I love thee for the micro tension thy weave into every line
for characters both dark and light
for a heroine complex in her flaws and grace.
I love thee, Suzanne Collis, for thy setting descriptions
for the psychology of a soldier’s mind
themes of war and sacrifice
for parallels to our own gluttonous society
for including the fallout of a revolution.
I love thee, Suzanne Collins, for keeping your promises to the reader
for ending chapters with arrows through vital organs
high stakes of survival, never forgotten,
for twisting your plot and killing your darlings
for breaking your heroine and leaving her broken.
I love thine ending lines.
