CHARACTERS Ó The Hunger Games Box Set The extraordinary ground breaking New York Times bestsellers The Hunger Games and Catching Fire along. The Hunger Games Trilogy these are my issues let me show you themMost of the good fictionfantasyscifi literature these days is coming out of the Young Adult and Juvenile areas so every six months or so I round up the new stuff and go on a reading spree Around two years ago that included the Hunger Games trilogy thanks to an ARC copy of Mockingjay I did a review on that for my work newsletter which made me think about it for a good long while It wasn t my best review because we re encouraged not to say anything bad about the books the object being to get people to read not to drive them awayThe first book Hunger Games is awesome Beyond awesome I loved it and I greatly encourage anyone who hasn t read it to pick it up now and get to reading Engaging characters tight in both senses of the word narrative a plot that while being far from original seems shiny and new for all the different spins Suzanne Collins puts on it It draws out your emotions and engages them keeps you on the edge of your seat Highly highly recommendedThe problem is it s best if you stop there I sure wish the story had At least Hunger Games stands on its own and after reading the other two in the trilogy I know that I can go back and just reread the first one and never have to touch the other two to have a complete fulfilling storyThat s not to say that the second book is terrible Catching Fire is actually pretty good Not up to the same standards as the first book it does feel like exactly what it is the middle book in a trilogy but not a bad read at all Basically it both asks and answers the age old uestion If you could go back and do it all over knowing everything you do now would you do anything differently Which is intriguing definitely But at the same time it is kind of a rehash of the first book which is what makes it less engaging The characters the politics and the good narrative stop it from feeling tired and dull and again it s a good read but it s lost its originality and some of the excitement that made the first book so entertainingAnd then there s the real problem Catching Fire isn t a complete narrative on its own To know the whole story you have to read the third book MockingjayOh man Mockingjay The book that had all the potential to be a wonderful heart racing utterly amazing finale to the trilogy So much potential so much fail The ideas were there but the execution wasjust that An execution It s like everything that would ve made it a phenomenal book was taken out back and double tappedEven a couple years later I m still somewhat angry when I think about it Still so disappointed I keep asking myself did the author have a word limit she had to adhere to Was she over her deadline by too much and had to rush Was she simply boredtired of this world What on earth could ve made her do thisGoing against one of the major rules of good writing Mockingjay is an exercise in telling instead of showing Nothing big happens in the book that the author isn t telling us about it instead of giving us the wonderful descriptions of the previous two books With very few exceptions events happen off screen and we get an info dump explaining them That alone was just terrible to read But then there s poor KatnissRemember the spitfire kick ass woman of the previous two books the one who was determined to do whatever she could to survive and thus ensure her family s survival Yeah well say goodbye to her before reading this last book because you won t be seeing much of her againIt s like she just floats through events letting things happen to her and barely reacting She just lets herself be used over and over turns into something akin to a leaf in the wind The few decisions she does make often don t make any sort of good sense and we re left wondering if this is really Katniss or a robot in a Katniss skinThe introduction of new characters should help things but the narrative fails there too The characters heck even the old ones we re familiar with aren t given nearly enough fleshing out they re just there They don t feel as real as three dimensional as characters did in the last two booksThe combination of all that leaves us with a flat lifeless book and what amounts to a boring read You want to get excited I mean there are serious emotional things going on Or at least they re supposed to be Hard to say when you don t feel it and it s just words on a page The originality excitement and all the drive behind the first two books is just gone Vanished And it s painful to seeYeah two years gone and I m still not over that Such a let downI still encourage people to pick up The Hunger Games but I barely give the next two in the trilogy than a cursory mention I reserve all my glowing praise for the first book and try to pretend the third never happened The Gluten Connection How Gluten Sensitivity May Be Sabotaging YourHealth And What You Can Do to Take Control Now let me show you themMost of the good
