So short I can't remember what happened. Entertaining for a day or so.
Good story
»
Good story. Connected to Mr. Mercedes though it's not necessary to read that one first. A teenager finds the proceeds of a crime and it brings him more trouble than he expected.
Family secrets
»
An interesting, expertly told story by an investigative journalist trying to uncover a family secret after his mother's death. Interesting to follow his story, both what he learns about his family and how he learns it. Lots of insight into the mental health "care" system of the era, particularly in Michigan.
Well done!

The revolution is on and Katniss has to be strong once again, not just for herself or her family but for her nation. I am a little obsessed with the Hunger Games series, have read the books several times through and hold the movies to a high standard. Mockingjay is my least favorite of the books, but the movie, if anything, exceeds the book (I have NEVER said that before!). Both the strength and weakness of the books is that you only know what Katniss knows. The movies take an opportunity to add bits of content that fills out the story with things that would be happening but she doesn't see first hand. Even knowing what's coming, I can't wait for the ending!
Great series!

This is a great series! Archer weaves a fascinating tale of two families now covering three generations. Every one ends with a cliffhanger and I can't wait for the next story. Admittedly, this is not my favorite of the Clifton Chronicles, but I recommend starting at the beginning and getting to know these great characters.
