Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

01st September 2010

I won’t spend a lot of time reviewing a book that has been reviewed thousands of times already.  But here are a few thoughts:

  • I’m sad that this series is done.  Start to finish, I absolutely loved it.  I even held onto this book for a day before I started reading it–how silly is that?  But part of me didn’t want to start it, because I didn’t want it to be done.
  • This final book felt more rushed to me than the previous two.  Collins did a lot of filling in the gaps, especially in the first half of the book.  While it was all necessary information, the book had fewer action sequences, less suspense and more history.
  • Collins still managed to surprise me at the end.
  • I think Katniss ended up with the wrong guy.
  • I love Katniss’ character–she’s strong, she’s smart, she thinks through her actions, she accepts the consequences for her actions, she loves her family, she fights for what’s important.
  • And overall?  One of my favorite series ever.

  1. One of my favorite series as well……and I agree, she ended up with the wrong guy!
