And now a few words about Mockingjay
**NO SPOILERS, JUST A BRIEF OPINION**
Will you stone me if I say that Mockingjay was utterly underwhelming and disappointing? Well, I’m saying it anyway.
This was one of my most highly anticipated books of the year, and I’m supremely let down by Suzanne Collins’s final installment.
At several junctures, I wanted to jump into the book and box Katniss around the ears for her actions, inaction, and attitude. And don’t even get me going on Peeta and Gale. Collins managed to alienate me from my favorite characters with their incongruous behaviors.
It took me an entire week to slog through, and it never captured me the way the first book did. I haven’t been this let down by a sequel or series-ender in ages.
Did you read and love it?
