I don’t know why I felt it was a good idea to listen to The Hunger Games trilogy on audiobook. Having read the books I know what happens and for some reason I thought it would be easier the second time around. Nope. Most decidedly Nope. Just spent the last 2 hours crying as I finished Mockingjay.
What I did get out of it was a greater appreciation for Peeta. “You love me. Real or not real?” REAL.
I have a killer headache from crying so much. Mockingjay is almost too realistic about human nature. I guess this is not necessarily a bad thing… It’s just that there’s a lot of pain and since it’s a first person narrative there’s no way to distance yourself from it. It’s is certainly not a bad book, it’s just not easy. I know all books aren’t meant to be easy, but Jesus God, this book is depressing.
While disturbing, this gif somehow seems appropriate:
This is, interestingly enough, my only Degrassi gif.
