I’m sorry this post is late getting posted.
Last night, I stayed up until midnight to finish reading Mockingjay. It was lovely, and I’d highly recommend it. Then this morning when I announced that I’d finished reading the book, I began discussing it with three of my kids who'd also read the book. And the four of us were shocked to discover that we had conflicting ideas of something that happened near the end of the book. Don’t worry, I won’t give out any spoilers, but let’s just say it’s a very big deal about why Katniss votes as she does on a particular thing and whether that something happens as a result.
After much discussion (including impassioned arguments and re-reading), I think a couple of the kids are moving towards my point of view, but we’re all a little confused. I’ve promised to re-read the last couple of chapters tonight to compare their arguments and mine against the text. Plus, I’m going to try and see if other people are having some of the same issues that we are. How many of you have read the book? In your discussions about the book with others, did you find any differing opinions?
