Warning: This Review May Contain Spoilers
I feel cheated. The only reason I picked up Hunger Games in the first place was because it was being made into a movie and I wanted to jump on the band wagon. I completely fell in love with that book. The characters felt so natural, the drama felt so real. I devoured the book in a day. Same with Catching Fire. I put Mockingjay on reserve at my local library. I just couldn't get enough. I waited for 8 weeks to read this book, and I feel cheated.
The beginning of this book pretty much leaves off where Catching Fire ended. Pretty much everyone's made it to district 13, except for Peeta. The first hundred pages or so is just military stuff. Which isn't my cup of tea but it had to happen so okay. They are trying to figure out how to over throw Snow, trying to figure out how to get Peeta and the other "Game" contestants to district 13.
Peeta is tortured while held in the capitol. When they do rescue him he is a totally different person. Katniss is always mad at Gale, Peeta hates her. There is really nothing holding me to the story now, but I finish any ways. It can only get better right? It wasn't a total let down, but there were people that died that I thought could have been left alone. And the end is what killed me. We get a one page epilogue as a happily ever after. I was pretty upset. Oh well. I'm glad I read it, but it still make me mad.
