The third and final book in Suzanne Collins’ popular The Hunger Games series has received its first review. Susan Carpenter of the Los Angeles Times praises Mockingjay, and says that fans of the first two books “aren’t likely to be disappointed.” Rather than just repeating the elements of her previous works, Carpenter says Collins “takes readers into new territories and an even more brutal and confusing world: one where it’s unclear what sides the characters are on, one where presumed loyalties are repeatedly stood on their head.” She concludes her review with a single word, “Wow,” so it’s safe to assume that Mockingjay’s first major appraisal is a largely positive one.

Fans of the series, does this make you even more excited for the book’s release? Is anyone planning on picking it up immediately when it comes out tomorrow at 12:01 a.m.?
