My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Thus ends my time spent in the world of The Hunger Games. The final book in the trilogy is good, but it’s not (IMO) great. The first one was really riveting. The second one gave us a lot of character insight. This one wrapped up the story… but it just didn’t feel as impactful as the first two. Even the death (SPOILER! Someone dies) in this book didn’t hit me as hard as the one in the first book. It should have – but it just didn’t.
I guess I would enjoy the book more if it had more to do with triumph and success than “just surviving.”
Am I still looking forward to the movies? Sure. Something tells me, though, that Hollywood will morph this book significantly more than the first two by the time it gets to theaters.
Time will tell.
