Mockingjay

I have finished the third act of The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins.  Any reader would be satisfied with the closure presented in Mockingjay. Our heroine, Katniss Everdeen, has been spirited away to District 13. District 12 has been decimated. Katniss has all of the telltale signs of major depression. She mostly sulks around and finds places to sleep. Luckily for us, Peeta is being held in the Capitol. This sparks Katniss into action. She joins up with the Rebels and prepares to take over the powers that be and kill President Snow. Prepare yourself for a bloody, psychologically damaging ride. This book did leave me with a few questions: Why do all futuristic novels see the world as a bleak place? Why can’t I stop the Harry and Lloyd version of Mockingbird from running through my head every time I glance at the book title? Why did I see the movie before I finished all three books? Peeta or Gale? Gale or Peeta? Why are there no Oreos left when I am done reading?

    Hahaha, I ask myself the same things. The Gale/Peeta dilemma is hard. I think I would have chosen Gale, though. My mom was really disappointed the way that the trilogy ended. She doesn’t understand why everything had to be for nothing.
