Though the first book is actually pretty entertaining and successful at painting a different dystopian society, the latter two books of the trilogy are quite repetitive. I read the last book a couple of months ago and was greatly disappointed—there was no attachment to any character. It’d be quite interesting if this actually does do better than Beautiful Creatures.
I did not realize this book was being adapted into a movie. I read the first two books of the trilogy, but after such disappointingly unresolved endings, I never forced myself to read the conclusion. Maybe I might now.
I’ll probably end up reading this, even though it seems to follow the same basic plot outline of every other YA book ever published.
Why does this keep happening? Is there seriously enough material to make 3 movies out of one book?

Let’s hope that this new added talent will help make the second movie a significantly better one than the first.

Why? Why, why, why? I didn’t understand it with Harry Potter or Twilight, but it makes even less sense now. At least the other two books were fairly long; Mockinjay is like 350 pages. They’ve ruined it. Not that they had such a great thing to begin with.
Jesus christ, do we really need another Nicholas Sparks movie?
