Jeanette Hi Meg

I hope I am doing this right, may I request to borrow this book via the Lendme system?

Jeanette
Happy Holidays

Chris I know how Jeanette feels I wanted to borrow this book from Meg as soon as she was done reading it.

It's a great series but everything in this last book is true to what Meg has said. Just wasn't the same as no.1 n 2

Sesana This is pretty much exactly how I felt about this book. I loved it, but I loved the first two, if you get what I mean. And yes, a bit rushed, though there wasn't quite enough to make for a fourth book.


message 4: by Desiree (new)

Desiree I agree with all of this. I love the series, and have reread them all 3 times, but Mockingjay was just so-so.


Jackie "the Librarian" This book was much harder to read for me, too, than The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. The consequences were so much worse for Katniss. Real pain, and the true horror of war are presented here, stripped of the excitement of the game format.

Lisa The sentiments you expressed are why I have not read Mockingjay yet!

That's hard to do! No matter how much I disliked some of the things about this book I don't think I could have not read it. I'm the kind of person that needs a conclusion, so I'm glad I read it. I just wish it would have been a little better and a little more true to the first two books.

Yeah, I mean we always knew it was a trilogy, so I wasn't expecting a fourth book. I just wish maybe Mockingjay could have been a little longer, and had a better pace. There were so many things I didn't mention either for spoiler sake, but it all felt like she was in a hurry to get it done and published.

That's very true. I think she was thinking that the excitement of the games could be replaced by the excitement of the war coming to an end, but it was just hard to get to that point at all. Also, (view spoiler)

Lisa I will read Mockingjay, but it is at the bottom of my list now--I am swamped with work anyway. I'm looking forward to the movie!

what? o.o one spoiler in a comment only. Did I spoil anything in the review in your opinion. I don't want to so let me know and I'll fix it.

♕Shannon I couldn't agree more. It seemed like the characters were farther in the future than when the story took place.


message 14: by Isabella (new)

Isabella I agree wholeheartedly with you.

Thanks everyone. I'm glad I wasn't the only one that felt this way.

Evie Clark I would have given it a five, but then she killed Prim.
