WIN THE LOTTERY, FIGHT TO THE DEATH
Scary times to be a teenager.
Months ago my friend Sandi started posting things on Facebook about Mockingjay, some book she was all excited about. I have to say I didn’t understand until she finally convinced me to read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. (Actually, I wanted to read it and my friend Becky loaned and then GAVE all three books in the trilogy to me. I am blessed in the friend department, aren’t I?)
The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay are books to be read without stopping. The dystopian society of Panem is peopled by fantastic characters. Each one is smart and foolish, good and evil, compassionate and insincere at the same time. They are interesting and complex and the competition they endure tests every facet of their personality. It was enthralling to read how each character evolved throughout each book as well as the trilogy as a whole.

While I will look forward to seeing the movie, I know that nothing will match the mental pictures that developed from the descriptions of the characters, the costumes, the playing fields, the pageantry, the districts and the playing field and its deadly hazards. If the movie is half as exciting and action packed as the books it is sure to be frightening, heart-wrenching and a huge success!
