The Beginning: I stare down at my shoes, watching as a fine layer of ash settles on the worn leather." Page 56: "I told Coin I'd be her Mockingjay. But I made her promise to give the other tributes immunity if the rebels won," I tell him."
While the beginning might not give the book away page 56 does. This is from MockingJay by Suzanne Collins. I watched the movie of The Hunger Games when it came out. Then on a trip last week I listen to The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. I drove 26 hours round trip so I got through both just as I got home. I then checked out MockingJay from my local library and finished it in a day.
For those of you who have read the books what did you think? I have mixed thoughts about the series. It is certainly exciting reading most of the time. I do hate it when so many of the main characters are killed off. And like others I wondered about why a series about children killing other children is so popular.
