Book Review - Mockingjay
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
I finished the final installment in The Hunger Games trilogy yesterday. At the risk of spoiling the series for those who haven't read it yet, I will merely say that Collins left me satisfied. I stand my my original assessment that Collins knows what she's doing.
The main character in any story should always be changed in some way by the story. And Katniss is changed. Affected. Sometimes the change isn't one we would have wanted for the main character. But this is a dystopian people. Do people actually go into a dystopian hoping for a happy shiny ending?
Here's my advice: Read a dystopian like you read a Shakespearean tragedy.
I liked it. I am interested to hear other reactions. Once you've finished the series, comment and let me know what you thought.
