Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

I have finally read the third and final book in the Hunger Games Trilogy. It was starting to get to me. I didn't mind waiting, but really wanted to find out what happened to the characters. I'll admit it, I wanted to know who Katniss chooses to be with as well. (If any were to survive).

This last book made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me angry. I also couldn't put it down. I read it on a weekend, which was good because work didn't interrupt.

I know part of the point of this novel is loss of life, and the unfairness of the situation, but one of my favourite characters was killed, and I am still a little upset about it. This isn't really a spoiler, as characters continued to die or be killed through the entire series.

I'm not going to go on about this one. You'll either read it or not. Chances are, if you were going to, you have already. I really enjoyed them. I'm looking forward to the movies, even though I know they won't be as good. I actually don't think I'll read them again. I'm not sure why, I just don't see it happening. Who knows though.

So, that's it. Finally finished the series, and I'm happy I did. I'll admit, I wasn't sure about reading any of them because of how popular they were. Glad I didn't make my decision based on my snobbery.
