I'm Writing This While Watching Tangled...Again.

I heard that Mockingjay (the movie) was out, so I decided to tell you what you're in for, because the movie is supposed to have basically all of the book in it.

The Hunger Games Book 3: Mockingjay

Katniss Everdeen has survived everything that Capital has thrown at her. Barely. Katniss has been through the Hunger Games twice, being the only female tribute from the 12th Distict. Now she's on her last adventure, to end the life of President Snow. The uprising has grown, and so has the underground 13th district. Acting as the 13th District's Mockingjay, Katniss leads the rebels to destroy the capital--but not everything goes as planned.

Here's the short summary of The Hunger Games Series:

There are twelve districts, ruled by President Snow at the Capital. Every year, the Hunger Games is held. A male and female tribute from each district are chosen, to go the arena and kill people until there is one tribute left. Scary, I know. Katniss and Peeta Mellark are the tributes from District Twelve, the coal and mining district. And in the end both of them survive through both 74th Hunger Games and the 75th Hunger Games, AKA the Quarter Quell. Then Peeta gets captured by the Capitol and Katniss moves to the 13th District, becoming their mockingjay.

Sounds like fun stuff right? Think again.
I had to force myself to read Mockingjay. Without the arena, the book isn't as good. That's why this book got:
** Two Stars
I didn't feel much in this book. The only funny part to me was when Johanna Mason called a character a squeaky mouse. There weren't any really nice parts, it was mostly people dying and more people dying. Then some more people dying. Get the gist? There was basically one thing more that I didn't like. You can't force love, but that's exactly what Suzanne Collins did. The heroes get together, and Katniss and Peeta have kids. You see, the two were forced to love each other to get the audiences' attention. Katniss never really liked Peeta until Mockingjay. I was a bit annoyed.
I did like the boss fighting scenes though. Very detailed.

So that's basically what to expect for the movie.
Have a great week!

  1. I'm with you. I had to force myself to finish Mockingjay as well. I didn't like how passive Katniss was in this one, and I disliked the ending, especially how her volunteering for Prim seemed to mean nothing when it came down to it. I have enjoyed the first two movies, but I'm not sure if I'll watch this one either.
