The stunning Hunger Games trilogy is complete!
The extraordinary, ground breaking New York Times bestsellers The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, along with the third book in The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay, are available for the first time ever in e-book. Stunning, gripping, and powerful. The trilogy is now complete!
I'm not sure if it was harder or easier to read knowing what was going to happen. In a way, it made it worse - because the anticipation of the horrid things I knew were coming. At the same time, I knew to prepare myself for such feels.
There was so much that happened in the series I had forgotten. Mostly little details, but they made a bigger impact the second time around. I suspect because I knew the characters more, so I was more attached to them.
The three most memorable scenes, to me, all happened in Mockingjay. I can honestly say those scenes still highly affected me and were still powerful as they were the first time I read them. I most definitely felt terrified, crushed, and pleased - just as I had three years ago. This goes back to the thing I said about me forgetting some of the bits. I mean, I remembered these scenes existed, but not the emotions behind them.
The narrator, Carolyn McCormick, did a great job and I was pleased at how she portrayed the characters - helping to add another depth of emotion to the story.
I can't believe I had completely forgotten the end, Not that it was bad, (it was no Harry Potter epilogue, thank god), but I had thought that was something I'd read in fanfiction (I'm not the only platypire that thought the exact same thing!)
Anyway, I enjoyed my second reading of this series and it has escalated my interested in the upcoming movie. Because I am a sadist.
