Reviews Wow, this is going to be so difficult. There is so much i can say about this book, least of all that it swept me up into an emotional whirlwind and wouldn't let me go. As usual though i'll start with a brief summary. Mockingjay continues a little while after the end of Catching Fire. Katniss is still recovering both physically and emotionally from the fallout of the most recent games, her rescue from the arena and losing Peeta to the enemies forces. The rebels are now in open war with the districts and the only one left to convert is district two and then the plan to finally invade and destroy the capitol begins... I have to admit this book is totally amazing but not in a happy way. Infact, if you can read this without feeling emotionally drained and like your heart has been wrenched out and twisted then your much stronger than i am. I was exhausted after reading this, there were so many twists and unexpected turns of events i was left stunned (and that's putting it mildly) I haven't read about so many deaths in a single book before and i have to admit, Collins took some serious risks with this book, she is certainly not afraid to sacrifice main characters in this book, yet i have to admit that all of it was necessary, however, very heartbreaking. Just when i thought Katniss had endured enough hardship she gets put through hell another time and by the end i just wanted something good to happen to her. She loses so much and is left a completely different person by the end, changed by the atrocities she's witnessed. The character development is profound in this and it was interesting to see some of the less seen characters in the other books develop and become somewhat stronger. Prim was a standout for me, i loved her growing maturity and selflessness and how she became someone for Katniss to lean on and talk to, rather than simply protect, although this all became bitterly twisted and ironic by the end of the book and i got the impression there relationship had come full circle. The relationship Katniss has with Gale and Peeta takes it's twists and turns as well and i wasn't really surprised with who Katniss choses in the end, i really wasn't. She chose the person who would complete her and save her from herself ultimately, and it truly was a beautifully bittersweet conclusion. Finally, i'll finish by saying that the final few chapters and epilogue had me in floods. Reading about Katniss
coming to terms with everything, moving on and the events after the war is over were some of the most emotional events i have ever read about (The epilogue especially so two pages of tears for me). This is one of the most moving, meaningful and utterly compelling reads of this century. If you haven't read this trilogy yet then give it a try. Admittedly it won't be for everyone but whether you enjoy it or not, it really is unforgettable and will change how you view the world and how we treat one another. Phenomenal in every sense of the word.
Wow, this was an amazing series. It’s now firmly in place on my list of favorites! Kudos to Suzanne Collins for creating such a wonderful series and such great characters. I got the book in the mail yesterday and once I started reading, it felt like I had a death grip on it and I didn’t put it down until I’d read the last page. I haven’t been so caught up in and emotionally moved by a book in a long time. There were some moments that felt rushed, but I think this is because some critical scenes happened off-screen, so to speak. But those are the limitations of writing in first-person. The main character can’t be everywhere at once and sometimes the reader only finds out about events when the protagonist does. In my opinion, things had to move quickly. It kept the reader engaged and the tension high. With me, it kept me turning pages until long after I would have normally gone to bed. It was worth it, however, because though I must’ve cried a good three or four times while I was reading, I ended the book with a smile on my face. If you’ve read the first two books in the Hunger Games series, you’ll know that Katniss Everdeen has participated in and survived the games twice, which is unprecedented. At the end of “Catching Fire” we learned that her home, District 12, had been destroyed by the Capitol. In this book it’s revealed that they bombed the district almost immediately after Katniss was saved from the arena because they believed she was part of the rebel plot the whole time. Little did they know that Katniss didn’t have a clue about any plot to save her, and even now that she’s rescued she resents her saviors for the fact that she was lied to and Peeta was left behind to the Capitol’s devices. Injured and “mentally disoriented,” she resists the requests to play the role of the Mockingjay for President Coin and the rebel leaders in District 13, the area in which she and her family now reside. The battles between the rebels and the Capitol soldiers rage on in the districts, but it isn’t until Katniss sees an unexpected and shocking broadcast from the Capitol that she finally decides to step back into her role as the face of the rebellion, encouraging the people in the districts to finally stand up and fight. But before she agrees to the demands of District 13 and the rebel forces, she has some of her own to make. In exchange for her cooperation, she outlines conditions to try to protect those she loves. Deceived by people she trusted, Katniss is tired of being a pawn in someone else’s games. Now it’s time to take matters into her own hands. Once again she’ll become the Girl on Fire and attempt to take on the Capitol and President Snow…or die trying.
