Review: Mockinjay by Suzanne Collins

Title:               Mockingjay
Author:           Suzanne Collins
Pages:             455
Catagory:        Distopian

The story:

My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plains--except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay--no matter what the personal cost

The view of a book addict:

I was sad when I found out that Mockinjay would be the last book in the series. Because I came to love the districts and the people living there. Of course I’m a Katniss fan and I was really curious to find out what was going to happen to her and her loved ones.
Because I’ve read the book before it wasn’t a surprise but I still loved every word every line of this book. It made me laugh, it made me angry and it made me cry. How many drama can one person have in his life. For Katniss it’s a lot of drama, but not all of it is drama, you can see that’s she has grown into the mockingjay role.

The verdict of a book addict:

A really great ending to a really great series if you ask me. Of course I would have loved to read a lot more about Katniss but I do think that in the end it’s for the best that there are only three books

  1. I hated where this book went. I know some people applaud the way it all played out, but I am a stickler for an ending that makes me feel good. And this one absolutely didn't. I loved The Hunger Games, but I wish I had stopped there.
