So I feel that there is absolutely no need for me to actually review Mockingjay, but I would like to share my thoughts. I loved the book- until I got to the last 25 pages or so. Basically after the execution scene, I was not impressed. I know people think it gives this great thought provoking message about society, but the ending just made me angry with Suzanne Collins. I wish I could go back to believing that everything would be okay. What about HOPE? Also, why didn't Guy X fall in love with Katniss's daughter? Isn't that the best way to resolve a love triangle?
I don't even know how many stars to give the book. Most of the book I would give a 5. I stayed up way too late to finish, and then cried hysterically for about 20 minutes afterwords, so the ending gets a 2. This averages to a 3.5, so does the book get a 3 or a 4 on Goodreads? I don't know.
How can I recommend a series that caused me so much pain to the kids I work with? Some of them are super-depressed already... and I'm sure that some of them would be find and maybe appreciate the ending.
I feel tricked. It would be like in HP 7 if Ron moved to Japan and and Hermione died and Ginny became mentally ill and had to live in St. Mungo's for all eternity. Seriously... what's the deal with that?
