Book Beginnings: Mockingjay - Suzanne Collins

The third and final book in my set of Hunger Games posts.

'I stared down at my shoes, watching as a fine layer of ash settles on the worn leather.'

This beginning is a little more traumatic than those featured in books one and two. It pays a successful homage to the disaster which the people of Katniss' District suffered as the result of her actions. The disaster which she herself escaped in many ways. 

In comparison with the other two books I think that it's much more representative of the book as a whole. 

In other news if I made a mistake in the typing up of this beginning you'll have to forgive me as I left my copy of the book at home and had to get my brother to relay it to me over the phone. We're fairly sure we got it right between us :) Yes this does mean I've already read it...

  1. This opening definitely makes me want to read more. I have the first book of this trilogy on my Kindle, but I can't seem to get around to reading it. I feel like I'm the only person on the planet who hasn't read these books.

    1. Read it read it read it! Seriously it's a decision you won't regret, provided you like the genre, I would say they're fairly set in the genre.
