I hesitated to purchase The Hunger Games to begin with because it was classified as a young adult novel. However, my sister-in-law encouraged me to read them and I had just finished another series. "What the heck," I thought.
After the first chapter, I was hooked!
I finished all three books within a few weeks. Generally, when I read a series of books I get the feeling that authors get tired of writing about their subjects by the end. NOT the case here! All I could do at the end of Mockingjay was sit down and just say, "Wow!" Collins cared about her characters and thought the whole series all the way through to the very last word. Every word in the last few chapters mattered and wrapped everything up with a beautiful bow. Of course, that is to say nothing about the incredible creativity and full immersion into another world I could never have dreamed of.
