‘Mockingjay’ Book Review September 30, 2012

Title: Mockingjay (Book Three in the Hunger Games Trilogy)

Author: Suzanne Collins

Date I Finished Reading: August 23,2012

My Rating: 4/5

Okay, so  I finished this book over a month ago and somehow it slipped my mind to put it up here! How?! I haven’t the slightest clue.

For those of you who have delighted yourself in this trilogy, you know how engrossing it can become. My family claimed I obsessed (and I am not too sure that is a false accusation).  Anyway… this trilogy was well written and very enjoyable. I need to refrain for mentioning too many details from the plot, to keep from being a spoiler. However, I will say that this series is a great read that I would recommend. It does contain occasional uses of mild language and much violence. I also need to admit that Mockingjay was, in my mind, not quite as impressive as the first two books. However, it still succeeds in gripping your attention and emotions. You will laugh, cheer, cry, become frustrated, and agitated, but that is just the result of a very talented writer.

‘the Hunger Games’ book review September 26, 2012

Title: the Hunger Games
Author: Suzanne Collins
Date I Finished Reading: August 5, 2012
My Rating: 5/5

This series as become a huge sensation…and once you read the books you will know why. Suzanne writes in a style that is gripping and addicting. I was rapidly drawn in and read the book in a day. When I wasn’t reading I was continuously drawn to thoughts of the plot. It takes true talent for an author to catch one’s attention in this way.
On a negative note the book contained mild language and, as you would expect, much violence. The attacks and murderer and described in detail, and some audiences might find this disturbing.
Over all, I found this book to be a great read that was remarkably written.
