I will absolutly be reading this again for the simple fact that I feel like I missed details that would have allowed me to figure future events out sooner. I say this is Typical Orson Scott Card writing because he has a way to feed you so many useless details that all seem to crash together again at the end of the book and rape your senses. I was lost and confused through much of this book and at the end i felt retarded that I didnt see events coming. As intimidating as I have made this book seem, I will be reading it again and I can not wait for the sequel.
I would recommend this for the simple fact that every good story needs an ending. there are some good twists and turns but over all the book is hardto start and stay interested in and after the action starts there is too much jumping around which forced me to miss details that would have been helpful to know later in the story.
Carolyn McCormick did a good job but her reading style seems very plain and over dramatic in some instances. McCormick reads very much like my 1st grade teacher, raising her voice and emphasizing uneccesarywords to keep a childs attention. Give me someone who can seperate the voices of Characters without making them seem like they are 8 years old and I'd say you have a winner.
Mockingjay is a very good ending to the Hunger Game series however I did not put as much stock into it than I did the other two books. I do not consider it to be time wasted but at the same time I feel like the series lost a lot of it's magic from the first book to it's last.
