Comparison to Movie

Obviously, I have only seen the first part of the movie, I as a whole would deem the book 100 times better then the movie, there was more detail and I enjoyed Jacobs point of view which was not in the movie in the same way, I felt like the movie robbed the book of much of the good parts and one liners. However, if it where not fro the wedding scene I could never have imagined it that beautiful as the movie had it.

Summary

All in all it was a great book I loved much of it and I think it was a suprizing ending to the series. There was a lot of loss, and pain which was hard to read. I mean she lost Prim who she was sure she loved, she lost her mom Emotionally, and she was so damaged in the end that her life was barely worth living. Yet i found relief in that she did finally realize that she loved Peeta, and could be happy again with him and she could enjoy having kids in a Hunger Games free world. I do wish that I had known more that happened to Annie and thir son and that Finnick could have known his son. And Johanna and Gale and the rest of the characters. Still it was a good book and I recommend it to any one.
