Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Angry Jesse. Cannot anyone write a decent ending anymore? Of course she married (I'm rebelliously inferring marriage) the twit while the other guy runs off somewhere. Of course district 13 exists, but is a Brave New World in the style of Pink Floyd mixed with Huxley (did you ever wonder why we had to run for cover when the promise of a brave new world unfurled beneath the clear blue sky?). But Prim? That was downright evil. The entire purpose of the first book has been negated. Everything goes from grey to black to black with a glimmer of grey, and I'm getting tired of waiting for sunrises.
Yet, these were well written and very enjoyable, and a movie version would of necessity be happier. So, still four stars, still not kids books in any way save the writing style, and I still think they were worth reading.
