Review: Mockingjay

   Posted by: Garrett   in Path

I started actually reading this at 10pm last night and read straight through until 3am. So, it is definitely a pretty quick read and a page-turner.

And now I know why some people didn’t care for this final book in the series.

Actually, I didn’t mind it. I even liked it better than the first, Hunger Games.

The ending is a bit strange. I thought it was a big dream or something for a long time because it just seemed so abrupt after the explosion. Everything from then on felt a bit predictable and rushed. But, at least it had as satisfying an ending as possible for this kind of book (and her choice of Gale or Peeta was supported throughout).

There were several spots where I teared up – the hospital scene, the attack of said hospital, when the boys were talking about her when she was supposed to be asleep, the stuff about Rue, and a few others. So, Suzanne definitely knows how to tug on my heartstrings.

And while I thought it was a bit strange to have the games-type stuff in the city (although it makes a perverse sense I suppose), at least this book was different from the first two.
