While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals, middle-grade, and non-fiction.
My name is Katniss Everdeen.
I should be dead!
Why am I not dead?
He loves me. He loves me not.
I love him. I love him not.
It’s all my fault!
Do they really think I’m THAT self-centered?
What should I do?!?
Oh Prim! Oh, Buttercup!
Whine. Whine. Whine!
My interest in and sympathy for Katniss flamed out early in the audiobook telling of Mockingjay. I wasn’t particularly enthralled with the story, and then the final bloodbath sealed my opinions. I finished more as a piece of cultural literacy, and to make sure that there wasn’t a cool twist at the end to make me forgive the weakness of the beginning, than as something that I was enjoying. In short, I am on the side that enjoyed Hunger Games well enough, was tepid to Catching Fire, and did NOT like Mockingjay.
I chose the audiobook format for Mockingjay, as I had listened to the previous books in the series, but the slower pace of listening just left more time for the flaws in the story to frustrate me.
