I read Mockingjay in one day. I couldn't put it down.
I was so team Gale. I mean all those years together, the loyalty, the friendship, the hunting and talking, it just seemed to me that she'd end up with Gale. But that's just me. People obviously need a spark to stay together but . . . I wanted Gale to be the winner. And, I felt that he ended up such a loser. Heartless, or at least cold, creating bombs meant to take out caregivers...and Prim, ahhhhhhh.
Of course, I'd figured out (like everyone else) that Coin was the bad one...or two. I mean sure President Snow and The Capitol were bad but not any worse than Coin.
I really loved the ending, though. It wasn't all perfect and rosy...like Hollywood usually makes it but there was enough to make me feel some hope for the future of Panem.
How 'bout you? What did you think of the trilogy? Now, I just can't wait for the movies. It's going to be a girls' day out...for sure.
