I read the Hunger Games series maybe 2 years over a period of 2 weeks. I remember feeling so down and dark after finishing. It’s quite a dark, grim, series so it’s to be expected. The end of the war has lots of death and maybe one twist but overall the ending in anticlimactic. That is not a bad thing. The end is still satisfying for me.
I really enjoyed the movie adaptations as well. This past weekend I watched Mockingjay Part 2 at The Scene at the V&A Waterfront my sister and my friend Alaric. It was true to the book and a great adaptation. A quick look at Facebook’s “memory” feature told us that we watched Part 1 on the same day last year. We saw it at Canal Walk last year. It was awesome to watch with the same people exactly a year later.
Goodbye Hunger Games. You were a great series to follow for the last couple of years. I really enjoyed reading a story with a strong and cool female lead, even though the “love triangle” was annoying. I’m proud to share my birthday with the Mockingjay, the girl on fire, Katniss Everdeen.
