Mockingjay, the Last Book In The Hunger Games Trilogy
I really need to do this book review. I’ve read a lot of comments about this book and some of them are a bit negative. Others rant about how depressing the book was and that something is lacking.
Well I just read this last month; I kept pacing right through it because the 2nd book’s ending was really exciting so I just couldn’t put the book down. Honestly, the book gave me mixed emotion s. It left me happy but sad at the same time. The final book is really different from the previous books; the action here is a bit serious, intense and deeper. You can feel how Katniss is struggling to be the icon of rebellion. Her every move can either free the people from capitol or break the ones she loves.
Yes this book is depressing because the ending does not really satisfy you. It makes you crave for more and there are still questions left unanswered. Was the book’s finale real or not real? I say “real” because to be able to achieve something as big as freedom and equality should entail sacrifices. Sometimes you can’t always get the happy ending that you want. With that, the ending for me is depressing but “real”.
