I finished reading Mockingjay yesterday. I found it brutal and honest, and a story that will stay with me for a long time. I feel there are those that still haven’t read these books, so I won’t spoil anything. However, I will say there are moments in this book, twists, that were deliciously surprising. Moments I geeked out about, as a writer.
Here is my favorite quote from the book:
“I no longer feel allegiance to these monsters called human beings, despite being one myself. I think that Peeta was onto something about us destroying one another and letting some decent species take over. Because something is significantly wrong with a creature that sacrifices its children’s lives to settle its differences. You can spin it any way you like…but in the end, who does it benefit? No one. The truth is, it benefits no one to live in a world where these things happen.”
