Five days before its worldwide release, I barged in at the metro’s most popular bookstore and tried my luck to inquire if Mockingjay is already available. It is not in store yet but I was surprised to know that the ubiquitous book house is already accepting reservations at a price of two hundred pesos. By paying the considerable price, I assured myself of getting my copy on the day of the release. It made certain that Mockingjay will definitely fly and land on my arms.
Like my nephews and nieces I am very excited for the release of Mockingjay, the final book of the epic trilogy of The Hunger Games written by Suzanne Collins. I am freaking excited to know what will happen to Katniss, Gale and Peeta. I am more than eager to discover about District 12 and how will the angry Capitol plot and stage its revenge to “the girl on fire”. That is why the world can’t end yet on August 24 because I have to finish reading Mockingjay first before it should happen!
Freakin’ few days to go and the long wait is over. I know it is ridiculous, but I want a happy ending. Not like wack jack uber-happy, of course. I just want to finish this amazing trilogy humming and skipping around the house rather than lying around depressed wondering what went wrong. Call me weird but I’m not going to make any predictions. All I can say without bias is that the ending I hope will not be all walking in a field of flowers.
Salamat at dadapo na ang Mockingjay!!!
