How can you possibly speak for everyone? Just because you pictured yourself as the main character in that one book you once read suddenly means everyone does for every book ever written.

I get immersed in books just fine thankyouverymuch. Picturing yourself as the main character would completely ruin the writers perception and description of that character making manty choices the character makes make no sense and messing up character development.

"It's common for everyone."
"Or are you just one of those few you can't get properly immersed in a book"
How can you say such ******** ?

How am I hypocritical?
You are making claims and speaking for many when in fact you have absolutely no proof and are in no position to do so, then you even claim someone else is wrong just for saying they don't necessarily agree with your idea that, again, claimed it right.. even though it's really an opinion thing.

And, hell, we don't even know what book you're reading, maybe THAT book does work that way but not ALL books do.

"used experiences and knowledge from others"
You've only talked about YOUR experiences this entire time!
Referring to YOUR book!
The only "experiences of others" you've talked about is vague generalizations of "everyone", which is simply wrong.
And of course I'm going to reply to your comments, what the hell are you even doing here making comments if you don't want people replying?

I am calling your claims as "it's common for everyone" and claiming that one guy can't get immersed in a book, ******** .
Are you even paying attention to what you're talking about? Are you on something? This is like arguing with a ******* 12 year old.

You mother ****** ...

Well, this is relieving really. I thought you were actually this ******* stupid.
Frankly I'm glad I was wrong.
But.. I guess you really do win. I'm not giving you the red thumbs you wanted, though.

Plenty of people do it I'm sure, but i don't. Some books are often too vague on character attributes, making a person able to fill the gaps with their own qualities. I can see the appeal, but it's not for everyone.
User avatar #16 to #7 - darthblam (12/27/2013) [-]
I definitely don't.. that's weird..

That's like watching a movie and trying to watch yourself be the main character..

The only time I've imagined myself in the story of a book was this kind of cool "choose your own adventure" Starwars book trilogy.
Like.. I was going around with Luke doing cool **** and actually changing the story... and getting us killed sometimes.
... Those books were like my first Mass Effect.
... damn I miss them now.
#30 to #16 - marioauditore (12/27/2013) [-]
Watching a movie isn't really a good comparison. In a book you often get to read a character's thoughts and emotions even if they aren't expressed outside of his mind. That brings the reader directly inside the character's mind. And if the writer is good he can make you forget you're not the character himself. Such is the power of a good book.
User avatar #17 to #16 - darthblam (12/27/2013) [-]
And yeah, the book referred to YOU in 3rd person and such.

User avatar #4 to #1 - jagenblitz (12/27/2013) [-]
That was sort of the point. Each district had a particular theme that was often reflected in the names of the people from that district. District 12 was naturey, hence the name Katniss Everdeen. District 1 made luxury items, which is why characters from there had names like "Gloss" or "Glimmer". The Capitol is futuristic and flamboyant, hence the ridiculous names like "Effie".

The names are intentionally outlandish.
User avatar #9 to #4 - ezmack (12/27/2013) [-]
And,the Katniss plant is more commonly known as the Sagittaria. Sagittaria is associated with, and probably named after, the constellation Sagittarius the archer. Katniss is an Archer.

Writers gonna write.

District 12 = Coal mines = Naturey???
User avatar #41 to #40 - jagenblitz (12/27/2013) [-]
District 12 = Surrounded by woodland = Naturey
#42 to #41 - toohntown (12/27/2013) [-]
just because every district has natural untouched land around it doesnt mean that every one is naturey
User avatar #43 to #42 - jagenblitz (12/27/2013) [-]
Except, as far as we know, not every district has woodland around it. District 12 is the only district where the woodlands and nature surrounding it is truly emphasized. The woodlands surrounding District 12 provide a large portion of the people there their primary means of making a living in one way or another.

Including the main character.
#44 to #43 - toohntown (12/27/2013) [-]
I didn't say woodland i said natural untouched land because woodlands isn't the onlky kind of nature
User avatar #45 to #44 - jagenblitz (12/27/2013) [-]
Which has little to do with I said. Regardless, not every District has natural themes emphasized. Those that do, such as District 4, also have those attributes reflected in the character(s) from there; as do characters whose district follows a different theme, as I mentioned.

I fail to see your point.
#46 to #45 - toohntown (12/27/2013) [-]
even the gem district could be categorized as being part of nature if district 12 can be. since district 12 is digging coal and 2 gems both from the earth, and are surrounded by nature. District 12's tributes never have nature emphasized whatsoever in the stage of the Hunger Games where you show off your most important aspect through your clothing.
User avatar #47 to #46 - jagenblitz (12/27/2013) [-]
You're arguing against me for things I literally never said.

1) I said EMPHASIZED. Whether or not x district can be classified as "naturey" is irrelevant to whether or not that theme was actually put forward in the book.

2). I never said the nature theme was emphasized on stage. I said it was emphasized as a general theme of the district. It obviously wasn't emphasized on stage because each district's stage performance follows with the official duties that district is assigned to.

Explain Peeta Mellark.
User avatar #38 to #36 - jagenblitz (12/27/2013) [-]
Peeta is probably derived from Peter, which is further derived from from the Greek word for rock petro. Peeta also has the same sound as pita, which is a type of bread. Peeta is a baker.

A lark is a type of bird, but that is perhaps a stretch for Mellark.

Peeta is a baker. Peeta is a type of bread. Peeta bread. I don't understand the Mellark though.

I didnt like the names, mostly because im norwegian and Katniss sounds really goddamn stupid. Cba to explain now anyways.
And Prim thats like some buttery ****

Man this sounds so ******* stupid but im too tired
User avatar #8 to #5 - jagenblitz (12/27/2013) [-]
Well judging English based names by the standards of another language is rather unfair. And the name Prim most likely comes from the English phrase "prim and proper", which describes her personality well.
#11 to #8 - anon (12/27/2013) [-]
And she's also named after the Primrose flower, fitting into the natury theme.
User avatar #31 to #4 - racetothebottom (12/27/2013) [-]
was the book intentionally written at a 3rd-grade reading level?
