Reading More: Mocking Jay

Back in April, I wrote about my thoughts on the Hunger Games and as a treat for being a good girl, Frank got me the second book Catching Fire one day when we were out grocery shopping. (I wrote about that one here.) I picked up Mocking Jay shortly after and read through it quickly.

If you didn’t read it, here’s the Amazon blurb:

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

Most talked about books of the year? Meh. Not quite.

I suppose that’s an accurate summary of the book otherwise even if it doesn’t scratch the surface.

It was an interesting way to end the series and mostly I saw it all coming. Without ruining it for anyone who hasn’t read it, there were some interesting ways to kill people and again I’m left feeling that Katniss needs to just stop whining and suck it up.  There were parts I liked, parts I thought were unnecessary and I was left feeling that enough of my questions had been answered. (Or maybe I just didn’t care to ask other ones.)

Did you read it? What did you think?
