Date Finished: August 24, 2010
Summary: Katniss Everdeen has survived two rounds of the Hunger Games and now is debating whether she should become the face of the revolution as the Mockingjay.
Likes: I've been in a day long state of literary shock. This is a good thing in a sense that a book can cause so many emotions. I laughed, I cried (multiple times), I screamed into pillows then promptly threw them across the room. It was just that good. There was a lot of action and I was invested in the outcome of the characters. I'm glad Gale got more screen time. He's kind of ruthless and not afraid of sacrificing others for the greater good. He's one of my favorite characters in this book. (not to say that I was ever team Gale or anything, but he's just really cool and the way I imagined him, he was incredibly hot.) He's smart, resourceful, and he truly comes alive in this book.
The book didn't spare any details which is something I enjoyed. Sometimes the description was too much, but it was well written and very cinematic with a lot of sensory details that sucked me into the story with the characters. The tone of this book is definitely darker than the first two (if that's possible) and the sense of urgency kept me reading and wanting to know what happened next. I read the book in one night and I couldn't put it down.
Dislikes: There was a few things that I didn't think were necessary. A lot of things that happened just made me angry and I wish they had never occurred.
Recommended by: Pfft, who hasn't recommended this book after the first two. If you haven't read the first two, go read them now, then relax, buy tissues, book proof your house (because you might toss it at a wall and break something), and read this book.
Acquired: I bought the actual book, but I couldn't wait for it come in the mail, so I read it on the Kindle App for the PC. Now my book is in the mail,
