If you’ve been here at any time over the last week, then you’ll probably have seen a lot of love for Suzanne Collins and her latest novel in the Hunger Games trilogy. While many of you may have already read this novel, I’m sure there are a few people out there who are hanging back for the time being. If you’re one of these Mockingjay stragglers, then I have a giveaway that will give you a chance to check out the stunning conclusion or give you an excuse to buy the two earlier novels, The Hunger Games and Catching Fire and hole up for a weekend of reading.
Perhaps you think that my opinion might not correspond with your own – it’s a valid point. If that is the case, then take the time to check out some industry quotes about Mockingjay and the rest of the Hunger Games trilogy:
- “The final installment in the addictive and deliriously popular “Hunger Games” trilogy will be inhaled, swallowed, snorfled, snozzled, single-gulped, shoved down the gullet, Jonah-to-our-whale’d.” – David Plotz from Slate
- “a beautifully orchestrated and intelligent novel that succeeds on every level.” – Starred Review in Publishers Weekly
- “In the final analysis, this is exactly the book its fans have been hoping for.” – Starred Review in Kirkus Reviews
- “Wow.” – LA Times
- “[T]he fact that Collins’ books echo countless other narratives is a strength, not a weakness. If The Hunger Games are, indeed, book crack, they can also be gateway drugs.” – Nina Shen Rastogi from Slate
