Very old, but just discovered it! Blog it!
As you can hear, Suzanne has always intended for Katniss to have a southern accent . . . I'm not so sure if I like this. I can't imagine Katniss giving all of her speeches and such, with that accent. Her voice in the book, her dialogue and the way its written, never, not once seemed southern to me....but, hey, if the author intended so, then it is so. I guess . . . .
But honestly, I hope it isn't southern in the film.
