gkmoberg1 chapter 1 . 1/21/2013
They're not in love. Dare to mention those words and she'll have a knife in your heart before you even realize she moved." Now THAT is an attention-grabbing opening line. *applause*

Then you continue this in a driving manner with the italicized "she"s and the drumming of her narrowed, driven view of life as she knows it, a life emptied of care & nurturing but with a remaining wisp of humanity that realizes that it's about to be either be snuffed out or returned to a pointless existence - reduced to the heavy, singe-word realization: "Why?"

The effect is terrific, chilling, tragic in retrospective and overall: memorable. Hitting the LIKE button!

Nice. I enjoyed it.

What they did o those kids chosen as Careers in the Academies was just as much an atrocity as what happened in the arena. To take a person and deliberately twist and corrode their soul, making them into an emotionless killing machine is truly evil. Poor Clove was turned into a more or less psychotic personality by what she was put through, although some small part of her still remained human enough to 'almost' love Cato. It's so tragic you want to hug the poor kid, but she'd kill you if you tried. :o(

This was a well written and insightful study of a damaged personality.
Many Blessings.
