Is missing most of book 3!!!,
This review is from: Box Set (Hunger Games Trilogy) (Paperback)I was very excited about getiing my books. i started reading as soon as i had finished work. i love the first two books as i have just finished them in about a day an half. i then started reading the thrid book.... coming to page 58 it was fine. then i start to read the first book again. i flick through the book till page 394 where the 3rd book starts again. i really wanted to finish this book today.... but i guess i'll be sedning the box set back. i'm hoping that mine will be just a printing error.
loved the books till this

I wrote about this on my blog and Scholastic actually picked it up. This was their response:
"Hi Limebird Beth
Many apologies for the fault in your copy of Mockingjay, we at Scholastic do appreciate how disappointing it must have been to not to be able to find out how the story ends for Katniss and Peeta - especially when you were unwell at the time. The Production team (there are 5 of us) became aware of the error last week and since then have investigated and finally isolated the rogue printing, which was ordered on 8th December and delivered into shops between 15th and 24th December. It was a printing error on the copies used to make up a few of the boxed sets.
We work really hard to ensure all of our books our produced to a high standard and are always grateful when people take the time to point out any faults or let us know when things have gone wrong. This is the first time we or the printer have experienced this kind of fault and we are working to find ways to make sure it never happens again. In the meantime, please do send your faulty copy back to Amazon, who will send a replacement copy to you. Apologies again for interrupting your back-to-back reading of the trilogy, and I hope you enjoy reading Mockingjay when it gets to you, they really are brilliant books!
Claire: Production & Distribution Director"
I would recommend getting in touch with them, as they are replacing my copy!

I have had the same problem and have contacted Amazon customer services. It was after 30 days so could not print out the return of this defective item. I am waiting to see Amazon's response to being informed of selling defective goods. Very frustrating in following the story.

Thank you for your response to this thread, I was unsure if this issue was simply a printing error or a 'flashback' in the storyline to book one that was intentional. Now I know it was a printing error, I'm more inclined to purchase it. :)
