#96: Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

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.

My Review of The Hunger Games
My Review of Catching Fire

My Review of movie, The Hunger Games


MY OPINION:
Unless you live under a rock, you will have heard of this series and know this is a final book. While it did come together in the end, and beautifully at that, I still felt a little hung up. I need more. I don't care if it's a final book, I need to know more.... did her last questions go her way?? I have to know!!!
As you can see, I hate that. Authors tell you no, and leave you screaming yes. It's brutal!
But that also shows how awesome the book is. Lures you in till you can't get enough and then BAM! You're hooked. So when it finishes, it's all you can think about.
Man, I'll be talking about this trilogy for a while. That's for sure! Maybe I'll start emailing the author begging for a fourth book? No, too much? Well, I'll have to suffice with recommending it to everyone on the planet I come in contact with.
Oh, and by the way... Cinna is still my favorite. Hands down. Love me some Lenny Kravitz, and through the whole second and third book, every time Cinna was mentioned, left me daydreaming.... woooweeee!!!! 
K, I may have spoiled some minor casting detail, but no biggie.... you'll get over it when you get 'er done. So get on it!

5/5

Recommend? Yes, but book 1 first.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
