A trilogy is like playing Angry Birds

An excerpt from The Coode Street Podcast, which touched on The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins:

Gary K. Wolfe: "I think we can agree that Suzanne Collins knew what she was doing putting a story together. Because I did read the first one, but that's all. Sometimes what I do with trilogies is I figure out, okay, I can see the arc. Reading a trilogy is like playing Angry Birds, because once you've figured out the arc you know whether you're going to hit the damn pigs or not."

Ellen Klages: "Oh, that's going to go on a t-shirt."
