Mockingjay Discussion

Written By: Kellie - Jul• 16•11

As per usual, this discussion post contains SPOILERS. I will be posting spoiler free reviews on all the Hunger Games books later on, but for now… I have a bone to pick with how Mockingjay ended… and really, that’s what blogs are for.

So, most of the book was decent. Fighting for freedom, Katniss vs the authority figures. Yadda, yadda, goodness. So, it all wraps up and Panem has a new government whooo, dangnabbit, turns out to be almost as corrupt as the old one! Don’t you hate when that happens?

Katniss, of course takes the new evil leader. Yay! Annnd, then she gets shipped off to live a life of solitude away from everything and we learn nothing about what all of her suffering really accomplished. What the heck?!

Seriously, I wanted to learn at least a little about what shape the new world would be in. Who would its leaders be? How does the public respond? Katniss to get a chance to explain why President Coin had to go. Even learning a little more about where the supporting characters ended up. It all just felt so unresolved.

I read this entire series in about 28 hours, so I’m guessing my level of emotional involvement was a lot less than most peoples. So, what did you think? Were you satisfied with the ending or did you think something was missing? I’d love to know I’m not alone in this buuuttt, even if I am I’d love to hear your thoughts.

  1. I liked the ending. I can’t say that I *love* it purely due to the subject matter, but I’m satisfied. The book could have used with another 30 pages or so to tie ends up for the characters but as is I think I’m one of the few that really enjoyed the entirety of Mockingjay.

  2. […] went into detail about what bothered me about this book in this post, but what it comes down to is lack of closure. I wanted more from the ending, even […]
