@OnceUponATime:  I did, too, and I felt like that was the beauty of the series. It can’t end with warm fuzzies and rainbows, it’s supposed to be haunting. I loved the end, even though I felt the same way you do!

I did too lol Even the second time reading them

I did wish though that there was a little more detail in the end.  Kind of just dropped off

I honestly couldn’t process the ending of Mockingjay. I sat in my room, emotionally scarred for a few hours. A few days passed and I started coming back to reality. Something about those books is too close to what society could become. It hit home for me.

They definitely messed with my head! So glad to hear you enjoyed the last book. I felt like I was still in the story for at least a day afterward.

I really think you should read The Road if you haven’t already. It is a much darker story, but it gives the same sort of immersion, and it’s beautiful.

The realization that Katniss essentially suffers from PTSD hit me hard, too.

I was so upset with the ending. Not to give anything away, but I felt like the whole point of her volunteering and the subsequent story was defeated. I refuse to let Fiance read the books because he has some mental health problems, and if those books made me feel messed up I don’t want to find out what they do to him.

My only issue with the last book was that it just threw away Gale. I understand that what he did was terrible and that she would never forgive him, but I thought there would be more about what he became or if he ever did feel remorseful. I didn’t want a happy ending between those two, but it felt incomplete. 

Rest of the book was amazing.

I loved the series, but really hated the ending. I wasn’t really haunted by the books too much, partly because I honestly got bored towards the end. The last book was extremely SLOW!

@strawbs:  It sure was! Catching Fire was by far my favorite in the series. Can’t wait for the movie to come out! 🙂

I felt like the end of it was really, REALLY rushed and did not care for it at all. Overall, I still love the series, though.

@ohmybears48:  I felt like she began parting ways with Gale from the start of Mockingjay, albiet slowly, and that final act was just so terrible it ended things right then and there.

@ohmybears48:  this is horrible but I really don’t remember what Gale did at the end? I just remember Katniss and Peta and was happy with that ending.
