I don't know what else to say beyond the title of my review. I enjoyed the first, thought the second was adequate, but wanting. This book, however, is atrocious.

There are so many points in this book, during the "action" sequences, where all I could think about was the author's writing process. I'm not joking or making this up. This book sounds like the author just sat a 6 year old next to her, stuffed him with sugar and chocolate, and then just kept asking him "and then what happened?" over and over.

Yeah, you can imagine how that would turn out: "Then they were running, and then they fell because the sidewalk was a trap! then the alligator face people came in the sewer. then the floor opened up and it was spikes. and the spikes had poison! then they jumped over the spikes. but then the bees came. but the bees were robots! then the soldiers saw the robot bees and they stung them. and then, and then..." etc.etc. That is exactly how events unfold in this book.

Maybe I can get a sugar-high 6 year old and keep a voice transcription program running and turn that into a best-seller.

At first, i wanted to hate this book. The night i finished reading it, by whole being felt utterly sickened with disgust. i wanted to throw it away, to toss it out my window and forget that i ever read it, keeping my loving memories of the beauty of the Hunger Games and Catching FIre untainted. Looking back, im glad i refrained from reviewing for a good week, because god forbid, if i would have the night i finished it, you probably would have more of a hate letter to Collins then a review.

I'm certainly not saying that i have grown to like the book, but my loathing towards it has instead become a dull appreciation. The book is good, but there are many good books which i don't like. In hindsight, what triggered my initial reaction of hate was how depressed this book made me. Not because of the dark context or the countless deaths that occur within it (i actually love dark reads), but because for me, it ruined what had the potential to go down in history as one of the best trilogy's of its time. It could have been truly amazing, but instead fizzled out into yet another piece of work that in my mind will always be remembered as "what could have been" instead of "what was."

I appreciate what Collins was trying to do, delving into the messy effects that war has on the human being, and in fact she does this quite brilliantly. However for Katniss to be the subject of this study is both unfair to her, and to the reader. To take such a beautiful and dynamic character and utterly destroy her to the point where she is a hollow shell of nothingness is unforgivable in a book where hope, and love are (or at least were) the driving forces behind said character.

While The Hunger Games and Catching Fire became more than books to me---defining the pinnacle of what a young-adult series can achieve---Mockingjay manages to find the frayed, tattered edge of every beloved aspect of the first two. It makes me wonder. If I like tomatoes and tomato sauce, why don't I like tomato juice?

I loved watching Katniss become a symbol of the revolution, her face on banners in revolting districts, but I hated her being explicitly called the Mockingjay because being labeled cheapened it. I found the constant voyeurism of the first two compelling, but in the third being watched meant preventing her from performing any real action. The need for cameras crippled her in a way they didn't before. Similarly, Katniss's game of loving whoever wasn't around got old in the third book, forcing Gale and Peeta into such resignation over their unrequited love that they argue for her love for the other. That conversation may have been the most disturbing thing in the series because of what it says about Katniss and how little she does despite how much she thinks.

That's what Mockingjay boiled down to for me. She didn't choose. She didn't act. She didn't take control. We waited through three books to see which boy she would choose, constantly provoking one while thinking of the other. The only reason she ended up with Peeta was because Gale had the bad luck of being involved with the bombs and was whisked out of the story. No one in their right mind would blame Gale for Prim's death because it was really Coin who planned the whole strike. The paragraph in which Katniss explains they were too similar proved meager gruel after three books of her affection for him.

I don't understand how so many people could give this 5 Stars.

At the beginning of the summer I received a recommendation to read The Hunger Games' series. And I dove in and read then both in 4 days. While I felt the novels were dark, I enjoyed the story line. I was impressed with the creativity of the author and I couldn't wait to read the end. I made a HUGE mistake and purchased Mockingjay on Pre-Order. It was awful. By the end I wanted to punch Katniss in the face. Collins failed to advance the plot and she failed to build on the development of the characters that she spent 2 novels working on and that I devoted myself to. As a reader I have to like at least one of the main characters, and I feel it is the author's responsibility to make me understand the other characters. In this last book Katniss was whiny, indecisive and weak. This is not someone who could lead a revolution. Who would be inspired by this character? I felt duped and angry that I was willing to follow her at all, but I still had hopes after the first two novels. I knew early in Mockingjay who Katniss was going to end up with. Gail and Peeta both were great characters until Mockingjay. Peeta could have not even been mentioned and it's like Collins worked overtime to convince the reader that Gail's is a bad person. Except I don't believe it, I felt like I knew Gail from the first two and this change in him doesn't jive. Is it the war, is Gail running around on the front lines. Did Gail get thrown in the Hunger Games himself. Oh wait no it was his love for Katniss that made him a bad person. I just can't grasp it. The Gail in the first two novels had a good heart, bitter but good. This final novel was dark without reason and without realism. War is Dark. I get that and as a member of military I see it everyday.
