Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

By: Suzanne Collins


Summary taken from

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''s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins''s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year. 


If you loves Hunger Games and Catching Fire you will not be disappointed in the conclusion to the Hunger Games series but be warned...the ending to this story is dark but with a bright future.

Collins writes like I've never seen her write before. She brings us into a world filled with violence and depression where we questions everyone motives.

But rest assured there is still the same story line and concept in her novel. We see Katniss fight to make up her mind between Gale, who seems much stronger in this novel, and Peeta, who if its possible, seems both stronger physically and weaker mentally.

And most of all we see everyone grow up. Although Prim is only 14 we do see a much older version of herself brought on by the new world. And even Katniss, who I couldn't help but notice had matured a lot in the last book seems to have gotten even older and more fragile in this books. Maybe its just me but we also see a much more selfish Katniss in this novel... but I couldn't help feeling like it was right.

I was gripping the book wanting to finish it to see how everything ends, while my heart pumped loudly in my chest. Collins seems to drag her readers into the world of Panam as I found myself worried while I lay awake at night thinking about Peeta.

This couldn't have been a more satisfying end and satisfying read.
