Mockingjay

I have finally finished the Hunger Games Trilogy.  Overall, it as a great series.  Mockingjay was probably my least favorite of the three books, but it was still pretty good.  This book picked up exactly where the second left off, with Katniss Everdeen being captured by the Rebels in District 13.  Unlike the first two books, this one does not revolve around any of the Hunger Games, but around the rebellion and fall of the Capitol.

This book resolved many things to my satisfaction, most importantly, the love triangle between Katniss, Peeta, and Gale.  Sometimes the battles of the rebellion were a little  long detailed for my liking, but it did help make a very developed plot.  The ending was also a little surprising, but wrapped up the story very well.

I would give this book 3.5 out of 5 stars.  It definitely rounds out the series well, but it felt a little long in some spots.  Did you read this series (or some of the books)?  What did you think?  Which was your favorite?  Are you excited for the upcoming movie? I am having a hard time waiting, myself.

Up next, Bossypants by Tina Fey. Yeah, I am really looking forward to this (I am a huge fan).

I agree- Mockingjay was my least favorite of the 3. I felt like it wrapped up alot of the important plot lines, but for some reason I still felt some stuff was unresolved. I can't wait to hear what you think about Bossypants! I've been wanting to read it. xoxo Marissa

I read these and enjoyed the story. I agree that Mockingjay was my least favorite. However, I read them so quickly that they all kind of blend together. :)

Can't wait to see the movie!

I am with susan! I read them all in one summer (well it was the summer before the last one came out, so there was a few months between)- I loved the over all story!

I'm am not sure about the casting for the movie- i am prepared to be super let down (i DO NOT LIKE the girl they cast for katniss at all- she does not fit the description in the book-- and i think she is a bad actress) But i will be there the first weekend it is out i am sure!

I read the trilogy a few months ago and I liked it as a whole.

I do agree with you on feeling that Mockingjay is my least favorite out of the three. It did wrap things up but I feel like it rushed some things at times (haha totally away from your long detailedness)

One of my favorite book trilogies is the Lord of the Rings....so I kind of love detail (when I'm in the mood for it haha)

My favorite book was probably The Hunger Games and I'm going to start reading a novel called the Sound of Blue. I picked it up at a basement sale so I hope it's good!
