Mockingjay: The Hunger Games Trilogy

From newspapers, to reviews, to fan-views online – The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins seems to be all the rage.

In this latest installment, we follow our heroine Katniss in a territory that was vaguely mentioned in Catching FireDistrict 13, which will prove to be the setting and basis for the story. Reader’s may expect the same emotional tribulation, [at times] fast-paced character development, and suspense-filled action sequences that have filled the previous novels, and made it’s fan-base grow, and become hungry for more. The pages fly by with each new development in the story, and there’s never a dull moment.

Yet, what is the cause of it’s popularity, if this is simply a children’s series?

The answer lies in the substance, relatability, and complex plot structure throughout. In this, it captures the attention of all ages – all appeals in genre. It has it’s own mix of Star Wars Sci-fi, Alex Rider gadgets, and war-torn worlds that one might find in WWII-based historical fiction.

    I’m on chapter 9 right now. Trying to take it in small portions rather than all at once. For far, it’s great.
