Herro. I recently had a marathon reading of Guillermo Del Toro's "The Strain" trilogy and Suzanne Collins' "The Hunger Games" trilogy. Both series had promising beginnings, thrilling action and memorable characters, both heroic and villainous. Both series kept me enthralled up to the very last page.
The endings greatly disappointed me, though. They reminded me of each other in that each ending only focused on a couple of characters, including the mains, and didn't really wrap up any of the myriad number of loose ends that existed by the time the books finished. It's like the authors were working under a deadline and by the third to last page you can definitely tell it was rushed.
I'm wondering if anybody else has read them as well and was as disappointed in the endings as I was? I fell hopelessly in love with Finnick Odair, and his death was both shocking and I think extremely undignified to the character. He deserved better.
