So I feel completely lame admitting this, but the ending of The Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins is one I didn’t see coming. In hindsight there was foreshadowing, but either because I took so long to read the final book, or I wasn’t totally invested in it, in the end I didn’t connect the dots.
*hangs head in shame*
On top of that, it kinda irritated me, because…
…that was the entire fecking reason for the gods-damned books! Her mother ducking sister! Then she goes and gets murdered.
Katniss: “I’m going to throw myself into the jaws of danger and risk my life to keep you from dying.”
Prim: *runs off and joins an army and gets blown up*
Katniss: “Damn it.”
On that note, it also felt more like a plot device to make sure Katniss ended up with Peeta instead of Gale.
But what do I know? Suzanne Collins is a world-renowned author, and I’m just me. *Proceeds to murder various siblings of my characters* Am I doing this right?
