Re: Why do you reread books?

for me there are a few different reasons why. i miss the characters (jane eyre), or i still can't believe the plot, or it's just so beautifully written that i can't get it out of my head (deerskin).

Re: Peeta Vs. Gale

i'm more team gale b/c, though peeta and kat have a strong bond through the first two books, their entire bond is through harsh survival. kat can talk to gale, feels comfortable with him, safe. and if it had been her and gale together in the games, he would have done the same for her, if not more. w...

Re: Nathan's query "template"

Hey Lex.. how bout this. Janelle is a (maybe put in what type of scientist... like genetic) scientist living in 22nd century Phoenix. But when she becomes a victim of her own experiment, Janelle must find a way to control the panther DNA infused in her, outwit lead scientist Frederick James by disc...

Re: dirge of the desert - new attempt, new slant

thanks for the great suggestions, hillary! this is really making me crazy right now... i like this idea of focusing on what is central to her instead of what's going on in the world around her. she doesn't care about the gov't stuff as much as she cares about what's going on with her and the other p...

Re: dirge of the desert - new attempt, new slant

Re: dirge of the desert - new attempt, new slant

Hillary, thanks for the cheering up! :D it was excellent and what i need right now. i know that this is an arduous process, but sometimes i just want to throw things against the wall... and i'm at work right now, so that would probably be frowned upon. Joel, thanks for the recommendation! Can't wait...

Re: dirge of the desert - new attempt, new slant

OK. here's what i was thinking. yet another new slant, but one that will keep names to a minimum... what if instead of focusing on the global crisis of a gov't-funded, unethical experiment, i just focus it on janelle's search for her memories while trying to achieve her balance between animal and hu...

The Humani Project, the government-funded genetics experiment she moved halfway across the country to work on, is to blame. Specifically lead scientist Frederick James. Thanks to him, J...
