Mockingjay Review

Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Add It To Goodreads

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.

I was so sad when the book ended. I didn't want it to end!!! I liked the way it ended, but not really how the characters ended up. I was sad when Gale and Katniss eventually grew apart, I was hoping they would have at least stayed friends! I'm glad she ended up with Peeta. Speaking of Peeta, I was a little thrown by the way his character wound up not being the original Peeta I fell in love with, what with all the torture he went through after being taken prisoner by the capitol.

OMG I wanted to cry when some of the beloved characters died! SUZANNE HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME?! Especially Prim!!! With Boggs and Finnick I was upset over it, but there wasn't really any other way I guess. But PRIM?!! OH and at the very end when we find out Annie, Finnick's lover has their child, I wanted to die.

This third and final book in the Hunger Games trilogy really threw me for a ride! The first book is nothing compared to the events that happen in this one! Katniss's mother really isn't in it much, I was kind of expecting more of her.

I have to admit, I was so glad when Katniss killed Coin instead of Snow. Snow deserved to die, but I'm glad he suffered to death instead of getting an easy way out. I had originally planned on reading the first book before the movie, but I ended up reading all 3 in a row. This trilogy is so amazing, I literally couldn't put them down most of the time. If anyone hasn't read this trilogy, you really, really should. It's better than Harry Potter and Twilight combined!! I can honestly say this is my most favourite book trilogy of all.freaking.time.!!
