Book Review: "The Mocking Jay" 3rd book in The Hunger Games
I finished The Mocking Jay last night.
I was horrified!
It was depressing!
It was WAR!
I guess I knew it was going to be war .... but didn't realize to what extent.
It was awful!
Loss of life - key characters.
Gale or Peeta - for Katniss? I knew who I was rooting for - but there were lots of twists and turns. I didn't think anything would work out.
There wasn't any romance, no humor, nothing good. It was tense.
Each chapter was a cliff hanger and hard to put down.
But, the horror was too much that I had to put it down and walk away.
I'm still trying to process it.
Overall - it was a very sad, horrifying book. But, I guess that is what comes from war AND government control. No one is ever the same - or - sane.
It was hard to know who to trust and lots of twists and turns.
You find out why President Snows breath smelled like blood. I thought vampire or something. It was quite a shocker when the truth comes out about that evil man.
I'm not sure I'm glad about getting this book on CD before I read the book. Probably not a good move. I just didn't see the series ending this way.
What did you think?
