What have I done so far this break instead of eating turkey or working on this semester’s final portfolios? Reading the last book in The Hunger Games series that’s what! I had been trying to read through a lame PDF version when my good friend Efad Huq bought me an actual copy as a “new thanksmas year” gift, and I sacrificed the first two days of my Thanksgiving break to reading it. Not that I had much of a choice—if you’ve read the book then you know how much of a page turner it is. There was no putting it down.
With a new shocking event at the end of every single chapter, I am definitely dubbing this book my favorite of the series. And what a great way to end a series! Though I like endings that are safe and sometimes predicable, I am amazed by the ending that Suzanne gave us. I didn’t breath when I read that primrose died, that Katniss would kill coin—the leader of the rebellion—and end up with Peeta; I was suffocated as if there was a fire in my room devouring all of the oxygen.
