Like everyone else out there, we all tend to start series, and never actually finish them, no matter how much we love the series, so it’s refreshing to be able to actually write a series review!
We start off with a bang in the Hunger Games. It’s still my absolute favorite of the three books. It’s so exciting to see this new world, and meet all of the characters, and really get to know Katniss and the complexities that make up her personality. It’s so much fun to watch Peeta’s love for Katniss being exposed, bit by bit, by their memories, and to see them interact.
Catching Fire is my least favorite of the three – there’s so much that happens before they end up in the arena, and then they are in the games such a short, short time. Of course, when you find out what’s really going on in book #3, everything makes so much more sense to the reader, but I just don’t care for all the drama leading up to the big ending, and then BAM! The book is over.
Mockingjay of course is when everything all comes together. We lose some beloved characters, and there are definitely a few surprises, and then there’s the ending… I’d so love to see another trilogy where we see where all the characters are in 20 years… or 40… to see Katniss & Peeta’s kids as adults and the world they could be living in.
