Interview with Marshane Joyce Padaoan

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Well, lets see. It was last 2 years. I had read a book named "The Hunger Games". I was pretty fond of the books created by Suzanne Collins. I imagined that I was in the arena, standing beside Katniss, protecting her. And then I cried everytime I read the 3 books, which are "The Hunger Games", "Catching Fire" & "Mockingjay". As you guys all know, those books were really popular. Even in the movies, which Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson casted as "Katniss & Peeta".

It had a huge impact on me. It was like playing with my heart. And if you guys had loved the books, I do too. Though, the last book was very sad in a way. [SPOILER ALERT: If you haven't read the books, don't read the following.] Finnick and Prim died which has shocked some people. Finnick--a boy from District 4, which was profound for "Fishing". He won the Hunger Games at the age of 14. He was described as a handsome guy who was inlove with Annie Cresta. He sold his body for secrets, as what he said. Finnick and Annie married each other. But sadly, he died fighting the mutts when they were in the Capitol. Many people were devastated because he never met his baby from Annie. For Prim, she was told to go to the Capitol and save some kids. But if you had read the book, you will remember that Beetee made some bombs which are going to explode twice. Having the baits (which are the kids) to lure over the people who are going to save them (where Prim was in). Both baits and preys were killed. In the end, Katniss and Peeta ended up together, wherein they had 2 kids. Katniss' mom and Gale were in the other districts and they never came back.

I ended up making a book 4 for it. *laughs* I just laugh whenever I remember how obsessive I have been with those books. Here's a preview of what I had done. It is called, "The Hunger Games IV" I'm still searching a name for it.

[ "End."
That's the word that has been on my mind when I first saw Katniss. I don't know her and she doesn't know me either. I saw everything that will happen in the future when Alex tapped me on my left shoulder.
"Hey, are you okay?" he said, worrying. "Uh.. yeah. I'm okay. Just don't mind me." I said. He stared at me, then smiled. "Can I do that to you? To just don't mind you?" I smiled because I know he can't do that. But I cannot forget all of the things in Katniss' future. I know that Alex knows that something's bugging me. But he didn't even bothered asking. ]

Well that's that. If you have any questions about that, let me know. The book is finished, but I can't remember where I left it. *cries*
