Reading for Me

The Books I Have Read…..Just for Me

#5: Mockingjay (Suzanne Collins)

on February 22, 2014

I finally completed The Hunger Games trilogy! I certainly didn’t see some of the twists and turns in this final episode. Now that the revolution against the Capitol is in full swing, the book becomes much darker in tone. Almost too dark, honestly. While I understand the necessity of making the shift, I found myself not very fond of the final book.

The scene that most upset me was when the surviving tributes vote about the possibility of hosting another Hunger Game, featuring the children of the Capitol. While Collins explained Katniss’ vote, I found it to be completely out of character. While I was thrilled with Katniss’ final choice of beau, I didn’t like the series’ ending. I felt the final resolution was trite and contrived. It seemed obvious to me that — in relation to Collins’ writing — “The odds were NOT ever in her favor.”

    I agree the final book was dark. The worse scene for me Finnick’s death. I still can’t get past it. I could embrace her choosing Peeta, but their love seemed to darkened with hurtful memories.

  2. Tiffany, Finnick’s death was horrible! I was so hoping for a happy ending for he and Annie.

    I hate Finnick dying! And Prim too, she was always a bright spot to Katniss
