Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Postby reason » Tue Dec 13, 2011 3:52 pm

I read the first two books and really enjoyed them. Now I'm on the last book and I get it on audio. Uh oh... It's hard for me to adapt to the actor's voice. It's not what I imagined as the character's voice and I find it particularly strange that the main character, Katniss, is a 17 year old girl and the reader is an adult woman (with an accent I can't really discern...)

I'm going to plow ahead though, I'd hate to turn around and buy the book when I already own it on audio!

Bright lights, big city, beguiling women . . .

I finally broke down and bought a copy of The Hunger Games at the grocery store. Hooked right away. We'll see about the movie.

As I wrote elsewhere, I will not be running out to buy the second & third books, & will give the movie a pass too. I thought The Hunger Games started out really well, then fizzled out sadly.

I read all 3 books and saw the movie. I like it, but I just wish the hero was more of an active hero instead of someone who just kind of gets thrown in the situation all the time. But a lot of female MC's in YA have some disappointment for me. So I'm writing a YA book with a female hero who is just the way I want her: strong, a leader, not overly insecure esp. when it comes to love interests, a rebel, and a freak. woo!

Well, I've read all of them and seen the movie and I can honestly say that Mockingjay fells like it's a completely separate book from the series. Just what they do to the characters alone . . . Don't get me started on the plot. I will see all the movies, even though Mockingjay is going to be two movies(!), even though I'm sure I'll be mad all over again.
