The Hunger Games series has probably been my most anticipated novel ever. I was crushed to learn that it would be released after I moved to Korea. I'm not joking when I say that getting access to this novel was one of my biggest worries about moving to the ROK. Luckily, there is an amazing English bookstore in Itaewon. All I needed to do was learn how to maneuver the subway so I could buy it.
I tried desperately (and successfully) not to be spoiled before reading Mockingjay. So I'm not going to give anything away in my review, except that I loved it. There was so much excellent action and so many surprises in this novel that I read it in one sitting. I feel like now I can go back and read it in a leisurely manner, knowing what happens to my beloved characters.
One of my favorite aspects of the book is the mood at the end of the novel. How can everything be alright in a world where the Hunger Games exist? Collins stayed true to the trilogy's dystopian roots, while still not making the reader throw herself off a roof. Just read this book now!
