Book Review: Mockingjay

Book #11. Goal for 2011 - 30.

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series from start to finish was excellent. Unlike the Dragon tattoo series that is difficult to start and then takes off this series holds you from the start. I love that the main character has such a different take on herself than that of those that love here. I think that is an accurate depiction of life in general. While the ending is rather expected I was disappointed in what seemed to be a rather malicious killing fo someone close the main character. I am not sure that I found it necessary to the plot. I only hope that movies do the book justice and that my dreams of partaking in the Hunger Games subside.

And yes, I stayed home on a Friday to finish this book.

  1. Funny you should mention the Dragon tattoo series. I just started it this weekend and am struggling to stay with it. I'm on chapter 3 and have been told it picks up so I'm trying to hang in there. I've never heard of this book but a 5 out of 5 is a pretty darn good rating. I'll add it to my list.
