While reading Mockingjay Angel, Candace and I decided to be a little unconventional and do a big discussion post! We broke it up into three parts and you can read them all on our blogs! Here’s Part 2 and beware this is FULL of SPOILERS!!
I do think that someone had to die, and although I was heartbroken that it was Prim, it really conveyed that things will never change.
Lori: What conclusion? I felt like what happened with Gale was a bit of a cop-out. He was brushed aside. Sure, they had been drifting apart the entire book and they had very different opinions on important things, but there was no closure to his story. So what he had a great job…Doing what? Does he keep in touch? Did he come to terms with Katniss and Peeta? Is he happy? These are all things that I would have loved to have answered. I was always team Peeta but I feel like Gale was dismissed. Collins didn’t know how to end his story, so she didn’t. I guess it was left to our own interpretation just like most of the ending.
Candace: Like Lori, I’m somewhere in the middle. I know in the first half I was feeling a little unsatisfied. But once things started happening I thought I was satisfied. Now that it’s been a week since I read it I do feel a bit unsatisfied. I guess I’m not sure.
