Sadly, I'm still reading Mockingjay


I've heard it's really disappointing even for hardcore Hunger Games fans.

From what my girlfriend has told me, it sounds too outrageous for my tastes.


I'm like 120 pages into it and its pretty interesting but there are way too many characters that i dont remember their role. I cant keep like 25 names straight, especially when most are just introduced in the last book, but I'm still enjoying it


Mockingjay is so bad. I'm was really disappointed.

so much potential.

Anyone got any recommendations for non-fiction motivational or inspiring books?

Mockingjay is laughably bad. Too bad too since Catching Fire is the best of the series. These books are what happens when good ideas happen to bad writers.

Looking back on it. Book 1,2, and 3 had a lot going for them that was just not explored.

I read The Hunger Games this weekend, I thought it was really good. I just started Catching Fire yesterday, and it is starting off very well. It's disappointing to hear people say that Mockingjay is bad...

I just finished Hunger games today. Great book, but I guess I'm disappointed in the ending, if someone wouldnt mind PMing me to talk about it so I don't give away any spoilers that would be great.

Yeah I read it in college. It was basically a list of principles with descriptions below each. It didn't really flow like a normal book, but it had a lot of great information that can apply to different areas of life including business.

I'm finishing How To Win Friends and Influence People right now. Lots of great stuff in there.

Thanks for the feedback, definately sounds like a good book to read ATM
