#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.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
