#Mockingjay fans – Are you ready?

I don’t know about you but I’m dying for the final installments of the Hunger Games. I wish in one way the producers wouldn’t cut the final book into two films, but then again, I get it. I just don’t want to wait for it.

I know I’m going to cry. For those who’ve read the book, you know why. But I’m also going to run the gamut of every human emotion one can experience. And if the film is done correctly and keeps with the storyline of the book, #Mockingjay 1 and 2 are going to leave me stunned, wiped out, paralyzed. My husband (who hasn’t read the books), finds the story disturbing on so many levels and the past 2 movies have stayed with him for quite some time afterwards. Imagine if he’d read the books. When I finished them, I felt like I’d fought this war myself. I couldn’t stop thinking about all that had happened, all that was to come, all that should have been but never will be. A love that should have lasted, that should have continued for all time, but didn’t.

Very rarely have a read a book that leaves me so numb. The ending was predictable. That’s not to say I liked it. I wanted a different path for Kat. I didn’t get what I wanted. I don’t think anyone did, but we got the only choice that was logical, unruled by emotion. I wept. I got angry. I loved. I rejoiced.

And I’m hungry for more.

#Mockingjay.  Coming to a theater near you November 21. Are you ready?

    1. I agree. I think JL has done a wonderful job bringing Katniss to life and what is there not to love about Liam Hemsworth. It is rather sad, however, that this is the last time we’ll see the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman. It will be interesting to see how they filmed the last little bit that he didn’t get to film before he passed away.


    1. Yes, but in this case, I think the film makers have done a wonderful job capturing the feeling of the books and the actors and actresses are amazing. My hubby doesn’t read so any film that can toy with all of his emotions the way this series has tells me that the portrayal is spot on.
