Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Well, I finished the series… finally! I really don’t know what all the fuss was about. Sure there were some good qualities about the series… they were fast reads.

But, I just couldn’t bring myself to actually like them. I couldn’t identify with any of the characters. Katniss was way too whiny and weak. Every time things got a little rough, she gets injured and then spends lots of time recuperating, and walking around in a drugged daze. Not very exciting… The whole love triangle thing between her, Peeta and Gale was eye-rollingly sickening. Pick one already! Or better yet, don’t pick one, grow a spine, and help reconstruct a better way of life for people.

The ending was so abrupt and final – it didn’t leave you wanting more. Maybe that’s a good thing…
