Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Summary via Goodreads:
Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.
I’ve decided not to discuss other characters because I might spill some spoiler if I do and I don’t want to ruin the story for other people who haven’t read the series yet so I’ll just comment on Katniss in this one. I realized how difficult and painful Katniss’ situation is only after reading Catching Fire and Mockingjay. I judged her all too fast (I was probably carried away with my emotions). I realized she was only seventeen years old and she’s already plunged into all these kinds of traumatizing and vicious experiences all caused by those heartless superiors of their cruel society. It’s all too much, really.
Also, there are so many shocking and heart-stopping moments or situations here. If you think Catching Fire is already terrifying and gripping, wait till you read Mockingjay! Also, in my opinion, I think this book has so more deep emotions compared to the first two which makes it more compelling to read. Suzanne balanced the drama and action in a very effective way.
I really enjoyed Katniss’ bittersweet journey and I must say that reading The Hunger Games trilogy has been a one of a kind experience for me.
Bottomline: Mockingjay is a spectacular conclusion to the epic trilogy that is the The Hunger Games. I felt satisfied with the ending, it wasn’t a fairytale to the fullest kind of ending but it was satisfying for me. I’m giving this a perfect 4.5 out of 5 stars and I recommend not only this book but the entire trilogy of The Hunger Games to those readers who hasn’t read this yet.
