I like turtles

Mockingjay  - Suzanne  Collins Hm. I'm not sure what it is about the third installment that made me like it less than the first two, but there it is. Maybe because it kind of fizzles out at the end. Maybe because Katniss is even less likeable now than she was at the beginning. Towards the end I couldn't relate to her at all anymore and I found myself not caring as much as I felt I was meant to. I was much more invested in some of the minor characters - Finnick, anyone? - than the protagonists, so when I finished Mockingjay it was with a sense of disappointment. I still like the series - I'm a sucker for a well-executed concept - but if I read it again, I'll stop after Catching Fire.
