It's not often that I'm speechless

My experience reading Mockingjay has left me speechless. I finished it about two hours ago and it's taken me this long just to get a grip. Maybe I'll be able to sum it up in a day or two but right now all I have is "..." and "um" and "wow" and "pass the tissue, please." Camille happened to call about one minute after I finished and I actually had to hang up because I was overcome with emotion and unable to speak.

As I don't have time to gather you all together to do a serious debriefing I think you should email me when you're done to let me know what you thought. rachelknecht at gmail dot com.

Also, if you haven't read it yet you should read this post by Valerie. It changed the whole story for me. And again, also, why haven't you read these books yet? Read these books!!!!!

My entire boxed set is en route from Barnes and Noble as we speak. I have been dying to get started on the first one, and I even bought it in paperback, but couldn't abide the thought of having one in paperback and the other 2 in hardback, so I returned the paperback copy and ordered the boxed set. And now I wish I had kept the paperback copy to tide me over until the other 2 come. As soon as I've read all three I'll be sure to let you know what I think. I'm dying to see what all this fuss is about.

I'm a little embarassed to say that I had never heard of Mockingjay until this week when everyone posted about it on Facebook. But really, what's all the hype about?

Just finished it. Amazing. I'll try and shoot you an e-mail.
