I just loved listening to these stories when I was a child and now to be able to listen to them with my son is a great experience. The children I care for also love listening to these stories and following along in my old picture books..... Love these stories!
I have read a lot of the reviews for this book and seen a lot of disappointment in them.... I thought this book had a great ending. If this book had ended with some unreal story book "happily ever after" I would have been disappointed. The feel of this story needed a more realistic ending, one that would fit into the general mood of the whole saga..... As for there being a lack of hope in the ending. I thought there was a lot of hope in the ending (Minor spoiler alert)..... The death of Coin, the cancellation of the "Capital Children" hunger games, the cooperation between districts, Katniss and Peeta find contentment and happiness and even have children...... Yes the book was dark, but the hope it portrayed was real, therefore all the more heartwarming in the end!
