Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen

has survived the Hunger Games twice.

But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive,

she’s still not safe.

The Capitol is angry.

The Capitol wants revenge.

Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss.

And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either.

Not Katniss’ family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

Comments on: "Mockingjay – Suzanne Collins" (83)

  1. I can’t put into words how much I loved this book! I was just so addicted to it and i could not put it down! When I realised how much the third book, Mockingjay, had changed from the first book, The Hunger Games, it really hit me deep. I was forced to think about how each and every character gradually evolved and all the problems that were put into perspective. I was in such an emotional state after the third book, mainly because I didn’t want to stop reading but also because of all the dramatic events. It was also very easy to imagine each scene and each character as the detail was always on point. I would definitely recommend this book (and the whole hunger games series) to everyone, especially people who like action, adventure, lots of emotions and a really good page turning novel. I would rate this book a 10/10!!

  2. The hunger games mockingjay is the third and last book in the hunger games trilogy. Join the remainder of district 12 as they rebel against the capital and try and recover Peeta who has been hijacked by the capitol. I really enjoyed this book, and recommend it to anyone over the age of 12 because it does contain some fairly visual/descriptive violent scenes.

  3. The hunger games MockingJay is the last novel in the Hunger Games trilogy. Peeta is hijacked by the capital with a serum that controls his brain and makes him want to kill Katniss, even though he is really madly in love with her. This book is about how district 13 team up with Katniss and the rebel against the capitol, and to get Peeta back to his normal state, although he has regular spurts when it stops working. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it for people over the age of 12, because it does have a fair bit of violence.

  4. Mokingjay, by Suzanne is the third book of the series. It is apart of one of my favourite series. I really enjoyed this book as the storyline was very creative and different. There was lots of action, and you never knew what to expect. It had you on edge wanting to read more, and was a change to the first two books when she was inside th hunger games. It shows Katniss’s struggles, but also her strength and individuality. Personally my favourite character was Katniss herself as I felt she was a very strong female who was determined to survive and set things right. She stops at nothing to ensure her family’s safety as well as others in need of assistance. She is very courageous, determinded and loving. I feel as though her sister Prim is very important to Katniss and helps her to continue onwards and try not to look back. There are many parts of this book that are dark and saddening, but also parts that are lighter and happier. The ending is very full-on and action packed, hard to follow if you are not paying close enough attention. I would recommend this to anyone who likes action over the age of 12 or mature enough for some dark parts in the book. I really enjoyed this book, and i hope others would be able to also.

  5. From reading the The Hunger Games to The Catching fire and now The Mocking Jay made me feel some sort of way. These three books have truly made me feel so may emotions. The Mocking Jay, being the last book of the series made me sad, because I knew that it was the end. The book never let me down, each chapter was entertaining. Yes, there were some parts that were confusing and a boring. But the moment you get into it, you won’t be able to put it down. I was purposely reading the book slow, because I didn’t want the story of Katniss Everdeen to end. I wanted to read it in and out and understand what Suzanne Collins was writing. Personally, in the Mocking Jay I found Katniss more emotional. I found it very different and I actually liked seeing this side of Katinss. Overall I highly recommend this book to everyone! It’s a wonderful book and the author Suzanne Collins is a fantastic writer. I would rate this book a 10/10 for sure!

    I had finally finished two of three books in the Hunger games trilogy. I strongly believed that they were the most fantastic books I had ever read. However, after I opened Mockingjay, I knew that I had been wrong. This book was packed with even more drama and detail than the books before it. The reason I think this book was better than the previous books, The Hunger Games and Catching fire, is because the situation was much more difficult than before. Instead of having the Hunger games themselves as conflict, the conflict in mockingjay was an entire war, putting tens of thousands of lives at risk rather than just 24. This book is action packed and filled with drama and adventure! I think this book finalises the trilogy with a bang! I definitely recommend this book!!!

  7. I can’t put into words how much I loved this book! I read the whole Hunger Games series in 3 days non-stop on the holidays. I was just so addicted.

It’s definitely worth reading if you have read the other books and enjoyed them, but be prepared as it is quite different and your previous views on characters and events will change so much. Shout out to Suzanne Collins!

  8. Mockingjay is the final novel in trilogy of The Hunger Games written by Suzanne Collins. If you haven’t read the first two books I highly recommend reading them before you read Mockingjay. In this novel Katniss Everdeen has escaped from the Quartar Quell games. Peeta a fellow tribute from her district who she has become very close to is believed to have been taken prisoner by the Capitol. The rebels of District 13 want Katniss to become the face of the revolution and encourage other districts to join in the uprising against the Capital, a district that has thrived and pampered its citizens at the expense of all the other districts. In this final novel Katniss must make many difficult choices one of which is choosing between her life long friend Gale and Peeta who has been brainwashed by the Capital and turned against Katniss. Katniss is also faced with many challenges. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

  9. Mockingjay is the third novel in The Hunger Games series. After an amazing first two books, I was excited to read the third. This book incorporates more genres than the previous two, like humour, love, sadness, violence and action. This book is different to the previous two as it stays away from the setting of the arena, and follows Katniss’ journey from being the Mockinjay, where she has to battle both emotionally and physically. In this book we see a different side to Katniss, from the Brave cold side we are often shown, to the more loving and vulnerable side. This book is quite sad so prepare the tissues! My favourite character was Haymitch, as he has always been the constant support network to Katniss, and I feel there characters personalities are very similar.Overall it is beautiful end to an amazing trilogy, and would definitely recommend 9.5/10.

  13. Hunger Games Mocking Jay which is the very last book of the series, it is so sad but than so good at the same time. Katniss is doing good even though she doesn’t not have a home any more. Katniss and Peeta compete in the Hunger Games again and they try to protect each other but one of the 2 gets hurt and ends up changing into a different person. If I was in Katniss position, I would be scared because you could get shot anytime and your team is out but you are gone. I give this book a 10/10 for sure and for those who have never touched a Hunger Games book before, I would recommend you to read all 3. They are amazing!!!

  17. Mockingjay is the 3rd and final book in the Hunger Games series. In this book, it is all about the battle between the 13 districts and the capitol. Katniss is the face of it all, and becomes the ‘Mockingjay’. The book is very interesting, and I was always excited to get to the next chapter! My favourite characters are still Finnick and Peeta, even through in this they both change a lot in the book. They are both so courageous, and are willing to do anything for the people they love. There is a lot of death in this book, perhaps even more than in the books where they are actually competing in the Hunger Games. There is always a twist to everything in this book. My favourite scene in the book would have to either be Finnick and Annie’s wedding, or the epilogue. Both of these scenes are I was so excited for. If I could change one thing about the book, it would be Finnick or Prim’s death! I can’t believe they die! One of the other things I would change would be the fact that Gale and Katniss don’t speak anymore. I didn’t want them to end up together, but I thought that Gale cared so much about Katniss, and Katniss cared so much about him. I would give this book a 10 out of 10, because it is so amazingly awesome.

  21. Mockingjay is the third novel in The Hunger Games series and after an amazing first two books, I was excited to read the third. Sadly, I felt very let down after reading this. The storyline follows Katniss in her attempt to destroy the Capitol and more importantly President Snow, to save herself, her friends, family and her people. As she attempts to play the role of the leader of the revolution that’s been thrust upon her, she suspects that no one, not even the two boys fighting for her affections, has her best interests at heart.The most of the way was really good and the storyline quite thrilling however I really didn’t like the ending. Not giving anything away I simply didn’t like it because I felt the ending was rushed and there was not a lot of thought put into how it ended, it was just a bit too cliché for my taste. Although, overall I thought it was a good book and enjoyed the entire trilogy overall very much.

    This book could have been better my favourite out of the trilogy was her first book but this book had great ending it was written perfectly and loved it, If you are a reader looking for a thrilling, exciting and even scary trilogy then this is the one for you I would recommend this story for teenagers about 12+. My favourite character was Prim she was gorgeous and she was willing to do anything for her sister just like Katniss, but sadly Prim dies in this book and I can’t imagine how sad Katniss would be because after all the reason Katniss volunteered for the Hunger Games was to keep her safe but I guess that she couldn’t. Suzanne Collins has a great imagination and I love how she can write and you can just picture what is happening in your head I loved this book so much and I wish there was another book.

    This was a brilliant conclusion to the trilogy. I can only compare it to “Ender’s Game” – and that is extremely high praise, indeed.

    When I first closed the book last night, I felt shattered, empty, and drained.

    And that was the point, I think. I’m glad I waited to review the book because I’m not sure what my review would have been.

  25. I recommend Hunger Games Mocking Jay to anyone who loves an exciting and thrilling read. It is a perfect third book in the Hunger Games Series. The story is about Katness Everdeen the girl on fire. She has the opportunity to be the face of the revolution against the one thing she hates most in the world, The Capitol. Will she be the inspirational Mocking Jay and influence the rest of the districts. Or will she crumble fall under the pressure. If you have seen the movie then the book is a definite must! With a twist and a turn in every direction Mocking Jay is an amazing book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. It never has a boring moment. With a beautiful ending that will melt you hearts, Mocking Jay is the number 1 book to read when you want an action packed, romantic, heroic adventure.

I like in the book how there is a bit of a twist with Peter and Katniss which makes you want to keep reading more and more. Throughout the whole book there is many mixed emotions such as happy and sad. I recommend this book to anyone above the age of 12 because there are some parts in the books which may not be appropriate (violence wise) I also give this book an 10 out of 10 because of the image print it leaves in your head at the end.

    I really loved this book because at the start Katniss was a girl who lived in the Seam but now she is leading a rebellion. My favourite part in this book was when Finnick was talking to Katniss about her love for Peeta because in that moment she knew from what Finnick had said that everyone had noticed her real love for Peeta not an act. My favourite character was Finnick because this time we see a different side of him because in Catching Fire he had a brighter side to him but here we see what really destroys him. I can relate to Prim because if I was in this rebellion I would want to help out any way possible because i would want to be free from President Snow’s reign. I don’t have a least favourite part because Suzanne Collins is such a great writer. Neither would I change it because it is amazing. I would defiantly recommend it to my friends because it is such good read. I would also recommend it to people who like adventures and issues of the world today.

    This is by far my favourite book in the hunger games trilogy. The beginning is more of a continuation of catching fire, where the characters are still broadcasting the war between the districts and the capitol, thought towards the end of the book the storyline is much different. The last few chapters were very intense and being entirely honest, I’m pretty sure I cried throughout the last few chapters. The book is an amazing ending to the trilogy and I believe, though it is sad, it is a very well written ending. My favourite character in this book would have to be Peeta, because we get to see a different side of him and after all his suffering slowly becomes himself again and loves Katniss.

    The Hunger Games Mockingjay is amazing! This book takes you on a roller-coaster, one minute the story is devastating, but the next minute a smile creeps onto your face. The storyline is intriguing and well written, but the concept itself is devastating and violent. My favourite character would have to be Katniss, for her brave personality. She fights for the ones she loves and what she believes is right. My favourite part of the book would have to be the very end, when Peeta asks Katniss “You love me, real or not real” and then Katniss answers “Real”. This part of the book is so romantic, Katniss finally admits to Peeta that all this time, she really loved him. I felt so warm and happy when this happened, and the epilogue just made me feel happy for them, but devastated that they will never forget the horrible things they saw during The Hunger Games and during the Uprising. Anyone who likes a adventure, suspense, action and romance would love this book, but be aware, tissues will be needed for certain parts of the book. This book, and the whole Hunger Games Trilogy deserves a 100/10!!!

  43. Mockingjay was amazing!!! It was expecting something more like the first two, but it wasn’t. I was a bit surprised about the content and plot line but in the end it astonished me. My favourite part would be when Katniss, Gale and other people go to District 8 to shoot Katniss meeting with the people in the ‘hospital.’ I love this part because you get to see the distress of the Districts and how Katniss is a role model to everyone and just seeing her brings their hopes up. My favourite character would have to be Peeta because, a lot of people say his weak, but really he is the strongest of them all. He puts up with his mother’s abuse, he loses his leg, he gets hijacked and made to hate the only person he loves and his life is changed for the rest of his life, never to be the same again. I would only change the part where someone dies that I don’t want to. I would rate this book a 8 1/2 out of 10 because it wasn’t as good as the second one. I would recommend this book to anyone over 12 🙂

  45. This is the last book in the Hunger Games trilogy. We finished Catching Fire with the realisation that District 12, Katniss’s home, had been completely destroyed and Peeta had been captured by the Capitol. There was also the infamous reveal of District 13. But what does this mean for the rebellion? You will have to read to find out!

    Katniss’s strength and courage really shines through in this book. All of the characters mature and develop so much, that they are almost completely different to how they began. It makes you connect with them on a more real level, as it shows their flaws and that they are only human. This book had me thinking, what really defines the ‘good and evil’ sides of a battle. Were District 13 and President Coin any better than the Capitol and President Snow? They were both ruthless in their goals, using any means necessary to achieve it. They both used Katniss and in the end, they both wanted to destroy her. I found myself hating the rebels just as much as I hated the Capitol.

    The complexity of the storyline is one of the best that I have come across. Suzanne Collins does a great job of detailing the effects of war, and that it cannot have a truly happy ending. I would recommend this series to anyone above the age of 13.

I really loved this book and I would recommend it to 13 and up and I would rate it a 9.5/10. The hunger games is by far one of my favourite book series.

  49. I went into this book expecting a lot as the other 2 books i had read beforehand were absolutely amazing. And it was an amazing book, but i was a little disappointed and i think that they could’ve executed a few things better. The book was quite slow and tiresome in parts, and Katniss had seemed to gain quite a large amount of vulnerability, which at times was a little annoying. But this was not a bad book, far from it actually. It still had a very interesting and engaging plot that kept me interested and hooked to reading it. Over all it was not as good as the first 2 books, but it did have a certain charisma about it that i really admired. I rate this book 7/10

    This is a great finish to an amazing series. It’s action from the first page and couldn’t have ended better. Just when you think you understand what is going on there is a plot twist you could never imagine and I love it! My favourite character in this one is Katniss and you get to see a bit of a different side to her. She is a determined and strong character. I don’t have a favourite part because I love all of it. The parts I didn’t like are the deaths because they are just so unexpected. I recommend this book to everyone you like a big battle finale and lots of action. 9/10 stars! 🙂

    Mockingjay has got to be the best book out of all three especially near the start. I can’t wait for the movie and my friend and I are definitely going to one of the fans although I don’t want any of the scenes from the book cut out of the movie as I believe that would ruin it.
    I must say though please don’t read it if your stomach is a bit weak or if you are young as it is a very graphic book and you don’t want any nightmares.

  52. This was my favourite book in the ‘Hunger Games’ trilogy. I loved the theme of the arena in this book and found the action very interesting! It had many twists and turns and I enjoyed watching the characters develop and grow further as well as being introduced to many new ones. Mockinjay is an amazing book, though I recommend that you read the first book beforehand to have knowledge of what is going on. It is quite an intense book so I think it would be suitable for ages 12+. All in all I give this book 10/10! 🙂

  53. It took me a little while to really get into it, but once I did, Mockingjay was all I could think about. This is an incredible book. It’s crazy how the things you wanted to happen in the first book of the Hunger Games can change to something the exact opposite. How something can be happy and yet so sinister. For a few days I was obsessed with Mockingjay and I spent the whole time reading and barely looking up from the book. It really is amazing. I would recommend this book to anyone who has read the previous two books and is prepared for the unexpected. I have so many emotions towards this book – happy, sad, angry, hopeful, hostile and so much more. I love and hate this book at the same time. It definitely deserves a 10 out of 10. Fantastic!

  54. From start to finish Mockingjay had me captivated, s.collins is an amazing writer, to be able to write three books on the hunger games is absolutely incredible!

    I was so sad when Mockingjay finished because it meant that there was no more books on the hunger games that i could read. So when i started, i tried to read it slowly to make it last, but that didn’t end up happening, it didn’t take long in till i was reading the last page.

    No book series I have ever read has been able to have my full attention for so long, It has been a long time since i read Mockingjay and i am still so amazed by it

    It was written really well, it had both sad and happy moments but I feel that the first two books were slightly better the Mockingjay.

    Mockingjay has more about defying the capital and snow and has much more violence. It also doesn’t have a whole lot of Peeta for what felt like forever but that probably added to the suspense and is one of the many reasons i just couldn’t bring myself to put the book down

    I love the whole series and want there to be another billion books to read because I am finding it hard to find a book that matches the hunger games

    10/10 for all the books in the series

  56. This is the third and final book in the hunger games trilogy. Remarkable Katniess had survived the hungers twice. Even though she made it out alive she is not safe, not even close. As the rebels rebel the blood thirsty capitol wants revenge. No one is safe, especially not anyone close to katniess. This was such an amazing book to Finish off the series. It is packed with action and fight scenes. You also get to know a bit more about finnik and joana’s story. Like the rest of Susan Collins series i loved it so so much. I would definitely recommend not just this book but the whole series. i rate it 10/10 !!!

    Okay so of course you’ve read Hunger Games and Catching fire, and hopefully loved them ! But this is the last and probably best book in the series.
    A group of people have come together to start a rebellion against the Capitol ! (finally). and everyone finds themselves in all sorts of trouble and action as they fight for their rights, and freedom ! Although I loved this book, I was sadly dissapointed with the ending, and kept looking back to see if i’d missed a page !

    Mocking jay is the third book in the hunger games series and is action packed! It is full of action, adventure and mixed emotions. You can learn the truth about some characters and how they really are. My favourite part was almost everything, really I found every part amazing I never stopped being completely interested! My least favourite part was when Prim dies because it was so sad I couldn’t believe how horrible it was… My favourite character is Katniss because she is always loyal, brave and smart. She is so inspirational. I would rate this book 10/10 because it is absolutely perfect! I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys lots of action, adventure and a bit of violence.

    Mockingjay is a fantastic book and a great way to finish off the series. I love this book because it is full of emotions and adventure which is what you want in a book. My favourite part was when Katniss goes to kill President Snow but turns on President Coin! In my eyes President Coin was just as bad as Snow, she hated Katniss and was snobby, rude and like Snow greedy for power. My least favourite part was when Prim died! I was heart broken! It was a horrible feeling! I know she was just a character but I got so attached to her as she was so precious and I couldn’t imagine how Katniss was feeling! I rate this book 10/10 and I recommend it to anyone who love a great ending to a series and has heaps of time to read!

    Mockingjay is the last book of the trilogy. This book had a change of scenery it stayed away from the arena of the hunger games. In this book it showed more genres like humour(a bit), love, sadness, violence and action. A lot of the characters died, this was a book without mercy or even unfair. In this particular book I noticed that Katniss was weaker emotionally but she still came through, so that is why she is my favourite character. Some of the events actually surprised me like certain deaths, attitudes of characters and e.t.c. This book was the only one that gave me something to criticise. I thought that that epilogue was unnecessary but I stilled liked the content because it gave an idea of the lives of Katniss and Peeta. I rate this book 8/10 and I would still recommend this book for those who are 12+.

    I’m a big fan of The Hunger Games series and I thought overall the story was really good. It was a really good page turner because lots happened and it kept it really interesting. At the start of the book I didn’t really get what had happened considering the ending of Catching Fire but it did well to explain what had happened. I thought it was really sad when heaps of people died because they all died trying to fight and usually were an important part of the book. Even if they weren’t as important like Boggs, I still thought his death was really sad. Although it was really good the end really annoyed me. Only people who have read the book would understand this but I felt like the “incident” that happened was really stupid and didn’t really have any meaning other than to bring Katniss and “the guy she ended up with” together. It also ment that when that person died, Katniss was a sook for the rest of the story and that really ruined it. I also thought that in the end the epilogue didn’t really have a purpose and it was just another way of Katniss saying that she was in love and blah, blah, blah. So for this story alone i rate it 7.5/10.

    I have loved the whole series of The Hunger Games, although I did think that Mocking Jay got a bit boring. I found it dragged on a bit at the start and I found it hard to keep reading, but I kept going and got through it in the end. Overall, I was pleased with the book but I still thought that the first two were even better. There were lots of unexpected highlights in the book which I really enjoyed reading. I liked how the author had made the book so you were reading Katniss’ thoughts, it made me like her character even more and made me feel like I was with her the whole way. I do recommend this book to people over 11.

    Mockingjay is a great ending to a wonderful trilogy. This book is a real page turner. So much happens, that at times you have to go back and read over what you just read to understand what is going on. But it is worth it. When I was reading this book, I felt like I was right there watching what was going on. So many things occured that I really didn’t expect, and the novel had me on the edge of my seat. After District 12 was bombed by the Capitol at the end of the quarter quell, everyone who escaped moved into District 13, where they planned revenge against the Capitol. But you will have to read the book, to find out what happened next. I give this book 10/10 and think anyone over 13 will love this book.

    Mockingjay was an absolutely amazing ending to a phenomenal series. Suzanne Collins did a great job writing this series, and although it was a bit slow at times, I felt very involved in the story.

    It starts off with Katniss visiting the ash that was once District 12. She finds her house, the meadow, and many other childhood places that are now charred remains. The capitol bombed 12, and Katniss wants revenge. District 13, the underground district that everyone thought was destroyed in the dark days, is plotting a plan to attack The Capitol, with undercover sources in the capitol. Katniss makes videos and Beetee hacks into the capitol’s television lines. The videos broadcast in the Capitol and Peeta (who is captured by the Capitol) calls for 13 to stop. He warns them about bombs and they all survive thanks to peeta but he gets physically abused by the capitol. I won’t say anymore but I do think you should read it.

    I really enjoyed this book and I could not put it down! I felt sad when a few of the main characters died but I was happy to see President Snow finally fall. The ending was a bit abrupt but I was still happy with it.

    I rate this book 10000/10 and I really reccommend that you read it if you are 13+ I love it and I am sure you will too!

    This book can be a little irritating at times, but it definitely isn’t a let down from the previous two books. I read this book quickly and I got sick of Katniss constantly feeling sorry for herself or whining about missing Peeta pretty soon. I won’t give away the ending, but some of the events are quite shocking, and sad, depending on which characters you are attched to or have grown fond of. My favourite characters by far where Finnick and Johanna. Finnick because he was just plain funny and I was interested reading parts about him because he sort of brought an air of happiness to the scene, and Johanna because you could pretty much feel her dislike towards certain people and her sour attitude. Overall, this is definitely a book that you should read, but I recommend reading the previous books first.

  72. The last book of the Hunger Games “Mockingjay” was definitely different to the other 2 as there was nothing going on in the arena. It was all happening in the Districts. The Capitol is angry and wants Katniss dead. But Katniss will not go without a fight. A BIG fight. Most of the book is about the war with the Capitol. It’s really intense but gripping. You always want to keep reading to find out what happens in the next chapter.
    I was so sad when I finished the book because there was nothing left to read. 😦 But I was so moved by the Hunger Games I have to keep reminding myself that it’s fake and nothing like that will ever happen. The book has made me look at things differently. It has showed me that nothing is as bad as it seems. When I have a problem I think about the problems that Katniss and Peeta had to overcome and mine seem tiny compared to theirs. I know it’s crazy!!
    So I recommend that you read these books, trust me you will thank everyone that has posted reviews on them!
    “Happy Hunger Games, and may the odds be EVER in your favour!”

    *sigh* the last book of the hunger games.I was so disappointed….. because it was the end of a FABULOUS series! This book… has so many deaths of my favourite characters, like Prim! The series twisted and turned around so many ways, like when the rebels won the war, but Coin the president got killed, by Katniss! I loved the book especially when it got towards the end, with more of the action. My favourite characters were Pollux, Finnick and Peeta, Pollux is so determined and uses his past knowledge as a slave in the sewers to help him in the war, Finnick, my sugarcube boy, risked his life to slow down those horrible mutts to save the others, you could tell he loved Annie so much he didn’t left go of her hand once at their wedding, I think that is very sweet. Peeta still married Katniss with his devoted love he overtook that poison and didn’t attack her, he also decorated Annie and Finnick’s wedding cake beautifuly.I totally loved this book, BUT there really needs to be many more books that talk about their kids, Gale, Peeta and if his medicine wears off and much more! Suzanne Collins is a great writer! I rate this book 20/10 GREAT!

  75. This to me has to be a let down for the other books, I could not stand this book one bit and I thought it brought down the whole series. Firstly Katniss was always walking around doing nothing, it was slow to start and her emotions were all over the place and annoying to read. Then the whole trouble with Peeta annoyed me because he was my favourite the whole time and know I didn’t trust him so I went back to likely Gale and then in the end she ends up with Peeta even though he still wants to kill her; I don’t see that as a happy ending, it seems like a horrible ending and Gale just goes off to District 2 and you never hear of him again. I also hate that once she’s over be all confused and goes into battle Prim dies and she starts right back where she was. I didn’t get this book, I certainly didn’t like it and I have no idea how the film will go.

    The third book. I was kind of sad to start this book because it meant this story (of Katniss Everdeen) was almost over I find that Suzanne Collins is a very skilled and brilliant author . But in saying that I think the idea of the hunger games is very sick – Children from 12 – 18 going into an arena to kill each other for the AMUSEMENT of the capitals citizens. It is very violent and disturbing. I was very surprised when all the deaths of her close friends and family happened. I love how there’s little bits in the story that just make it that little bit better.
    I was very sad to read the last few pages of this series right to the end of the ” about the author”

    action packed, along with a marriage and a few babies! Sadly,
    Prim, Katniss’s younger sister dies, due to the fact the Capitol
    is really mean. With the fact District 12 gets bombed and reduced to
    nothing but smithereens, Katniss and her family are terribly depressed.
    But what other surprises are in store? Who has the courage to finally take down President Snow? The answer is Katniss Everdeen.

    People had told me for years that I HAVE to read the hunger games series by Suzanne Collins, and when I finally did, it was worth. Though I normally read romance or fantasy, i loved this book. But it also scared me. The three part series is set in the future, and it is a horrific one. Once a year one boy and one girl are chosen from the 12 Districts of Panem to compete in the Hunger Games. The 24 kids (12-18 i think) are forced into an arena to kill each other. The victor is the one left alive. The entire games are made to amuse the Capitol (the ruling force of Panem). The book is from Katniss’ point of view and I admire her even though she is a fictional character. She does whatever it takes to survive, and for her family to survive. There are some heart-wrenching scenes (SPOILER ALERT) like when her sister 12 year old Prim dies, as does many others. I guess what makes this series apart from others like it is the harshness. The killings, the politics, the revolution, the emotional and physical exhaustion are all in vivid detail. My favorite line is from the last page, where Katniss talks about her marriage with Peeta, her recovery from the trauma of the games and her children. She sees her children laugh and play chasy in a meadow that is actually the top of a mass grave and she says (or thinks) “there are worse games to play”. I recommend it for anyone over 12.

  82. “Mockingjay” is the third novel in The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, following “The Hunger Games” and “Catching Fire”. Personally, I thought that this novel was a bit of a heart breaker – not just because it was the end to an epic trilogy.
    A short time after starting the novel I realised that Collins’ writing style changed slightly for this novel. Whether that was intentional – so that the more advanced themes could be dealt with, or to convey the mood – or not, I’m not sure.
    I also felt that the epilogue was really unnecessary, and that the story ends better if you just ignore it.
    Whichever “Team” you’re on, Team Peeta or Team Gale, your heart will be broken in one way or another, and after a while it was hard to read this book because so many of my favourite characters were effected so immensely.
    Multiple characters (new and old) are killed off (which should come as no surprise to those who have read the first two books). It felt a bit like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows all over again.
    Although there were many negatives to the novel, there were a lot of positive things too. You really get to see inside the characters’ heads a lot more, and you get to see what drives them to do what the do.
    Since this story is not set in the actual games, there was a vast change of scenery, and it wasn’t as stationary in setting as the other two novels.
    It’s definitely worth reading if you have read the other books and enjoyed them, but be prepared as it is quite different and your previous views on characters and events will change hugely!
    Hopefully you enjoy some aspect of it.
