Additionally, this author seems to take just about every option that might fit into a a name or symbol and put it out there for your consideration. For example, Peeta, you will get the connection about bread, pita bread, and also the Pieta and the connection to Christlike love that Peeta exemplifies at the end of book two.
With those two considerations, this book is great. It really helped me to look at the characters and their names and the meaning and symbolism in a much deeper way. I found it to be useful. It also was not a difficult read, despite the many options that each name or symbol conjures up.
Well worth the money.
If your not either of those things, pass. It's pretty much straight forward reasoning regarding the character names, etc....
Waste of money, in my opinion.
