Mockingjay - Collins Suzanne

A Book Everyone Hated but You Liked

I am going to go with the easy pick here and say Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. I thought she did a great job of ending the series with that book. Was it as interesting and fun as the other two, no, but it shouldn't have been. Some things that happened, you know, shocked me, but I never felt like it was out of place for the series or anything. The very end I thought was handled well too. 


I don't think that review has migrated from GR yet, but I gave it four stars. It wasn't perfect but I didn't think it was a huge let down like a large number of people did. I look forward to see it translated to the screen... though I don't know how they are going to make it two films...
