Follow Me Friday (17)

Welcome to Follow Friday Hosted By Parajunkee.com and Alisoncanread.com


This weeks question:

Q. If you could change the ending of any book (or series), which book would you choose? Why and to what?


Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)
A) I love The Hunger Games series but there are so many things that drove me crazy and let me down in Mockingjay. I felt like in this last book she threw the characters I cared about away.

Happy Hopping and Following,
Rebecca

  1. Hopping through. Totally agree with Mockingjay. I was mad that one character died without a mention practically and the book went on and on about the other character who died that I didn't care about as much.

  2. I so agree with you on this! The ending wasn't what I thought it was going to be!

  4. I haven't read this series yet, but how awful to feel that way on the final book!! I hate when that happens, thankfully I haven't encountered it too much, but it sort of puts me off reading it. It sucks when the final book of a up-to-that-point great series, is a disappointment :(

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Following you!

  5. I've actually only read the first of the series and really disliked it and never bothered to continue on. With your comment, it almost kind of makes me glad I didn't. lol.

    Just hopping on through. Happy follow friday :)

  8. Poor Mockingjay. Everyone seems to be crucifying the ending for #FF. It's making me happy that I haven't read it!

  9. I COMPLETELY AGREE! Mockingjay was such a let down for me! I was devastated when reading about my favorite characters dying. She didn't have to kill so many off! I think it was just lazy to do that, and it made the book way too depressing for my taste!

  10. I think this and Breaking Dawn are the two favourite responses for this question. That and the fact quite a few people wanted the Harry Potter series to go on ... and on...

    I'm a new follower (Happy FF!)

  14. I haven't read the Hunger Games and I think I've seen the Mockingjay book somewhere. :) Then I read and heard that "The Hunger Games" will be taking the movie route soon, so I hope to get the copy before I watch the movie. ☺ Here's my link:http://passagesofthepen.blogspot.com/2011/09/follow-friday-2.html

  15. Remember hearing that people were upset with the ending of the third book. Never got around to reading this series though.

  16. The entire book made me angry! And I didn't like the ending for some reason. It just felt...wrong.

  20. Being the maverick that I am, I penciled in my own addition to this week’s Follow Friday question and then answered it.

    Change the ending of a book? No way, no how.

    From the perspective of a reader – it never even dawned on me. As a writer I find the notion sacrilegious.

    Wait! I can explain! Follow me back to my blog for all the verbosity – http://www.howardsherman.net

    Happy Labor Day Weekend!
