Convo of Mockingjay (Hunger Games 3) by Suzanne Collins with Rex Robort reviews


BLURB:

where I got my copy: Borders
where to buy: Amazon, B&N

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

THOUGHTS:
I have rated this 2 stars as soon as I finish reading it and I wrote a little of what I am feeling on GoodReads.com but after much contemplation I decided to change the rating. But before that let me just say that I still hold the ground that I think part 1 and part 2 was a waste of paper. I was bored and I feel sorry for all the characters and annoyed by the turn of events. I guess that is what Ms. Collins is after (minus the boring part), because this is dystopian after all. No sugar coated scenarios and no mellowed down scenes. I can't stand it everytime Katniss is being manhandled, seriously. Coin needs to die, so I was happy at the end.

Here's my convo with Julia of Rex Robot Reviews on Facebook after reading Mockingjay.
I decided to post this since, I have already read a million reviews about Mockingjay, so I figured other people might already get sick of reading another review. So I opted for this route.

STATUS: Patricia Ann Tolentino-Ortin I am so disappointed with Mockingjay :( I WAITED for this?! Julia Sutch you done reading?

    • Julia Sutch I'm done... I liked it! But you know, I was kinda depressed about the ending... I wanted to see Katniss happier than that. She seemed too apathetic for me.

    • Patricia Ann Tolentino-Ortin Yes!!!! that's why. But the first two parts is what really gets me :( I got bored and I keep waiting for something exceptional to happened but no... I haven't been to your website, I'll go there and see if you review it yet.

      I haven't posted a review for it... I mean, every single site is posting reviews, so I'm going to wait awhile. With all the people posting about it the past two weeks, I got sick of the cover/title. haha.

      Oh me too. I think I am going to wait till everything dies down. lol Maybe post my broken Lake and Blameless review.
      After much contemplation, I realized that I am riddled with emotions after finishing Mockingjay. I realized that I was just ......seriously frustrated with the lack of action and flatness in character on the first two parts but after that it was actually good. I have finally realized that I am Team gale and I am very very sad on what happened to them.

      Two that died? You mean Rue and Finnick?

      How was Broken Lake and Blameless? Don't you give my any Blameless spoilers! I am going to start that book today. Did you read Deeply, Desperately yet? I'm going to read that one after Blameless.

      (Mockingjay spoilers below to anyone who has...n't read the book)

      I felt like my heart was broken at the end of Mockingjay. I liked the happy ending, but I want Katniss to feel more joy/happiness. I just didn't feel that when she was talking about the life she had with the kiddos. I'm sad Gale kinda went MIA too, but I was really happy she ended up with Peeta. I think they were the better match.

      Two that died - Prim, her sister and Finnick. He had just gotten married and had a baby!!! AGH!! And then Prim, she went through all this hell to save her, and in the end, the Capitol gets their way anyway.

    • Patricia Ann Tolentino-Ortin
      yeah I meant Prim and Finnick. i dunno why I keep saying Rue, since she's been dead since end of Hunger Games.

      Exactly what I am thinking! my heart broke when Prim died. She had such a good future ahead of her and she is so smart and talent...ed. i know that was the final straw for Katniss. i was surprise she didn't really go insane. Finnick's death, I don't have so much, but the fact that i wish he could have had some last words, a message for Annie. like a convo maybe between him and Kat before the whole mission.

      Why does it have to be Gale's invention that killed Prim and those kids? odds have been so against him, it was obvious that Peeta is a better choice. And ohhhh Sbiw should have died a painful torturous death after the genocide anf inhumanity that he has done, but no! he died of what? Poison, stampede, unknown reason? weeeak. Coin's death was kind of awesome, the woman had it coming.

      Broken Lake is goood :) read it soon. i haven't read Blameless yet, i decided to read I am Number Four first. Dooood it is pretty interesting you gotta check it out. Def,maybe... i havent bought a copy yet.

      Finnick went through so much and was a little insane, so I'm glad things were better for him before he died- but he was a relatively large character and I feel like his death wasn't given enough time!! Agh!! I wish she were writing more.

      I ...liked Snow's death... I feel like it would have been tiring and made the Rebels just like the Capital if they would have tortured him. I was so happy when Katniss killed Coin. I had a feeling they were going to take her out in one way or another.

      What is Broken Lake about? I started Blameless- good so far. I have an ARC of I am Number Four... I wasn't that interested in starting it right away, but let me know what you think- if it is good I will jump on it. I've been more into the YA books lately... but I'm still getting more romance ARCs than YA. :(

      PS! I'm glad you're back!!! :)
