This is the final book in the ground-breaking Hunger Games trilogy.
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' family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.
Mediocre and Dark Part 2
The tone of Mockingjay was also a lot darker and serious than the previous two books, which felt a little out of place for me. The book felt like it wanted to be a really shocking, devastating and emotive war story, but instead turned out to be two thirds hanging around district 13 and a weak final third conclusion. The tone of the book also seemed out of place with the type of story Collins had already established in the previous two books. Some scenes felt completely out of place and horrid, especially one near the end of the book, whilst others were slow and uneventful. And speaking of slow and uneventful, Katnisss conflicting feelings between Gale and Peeta became so tiring I seriously just didnt care anymore halfway through the book because the whole three-way-love-triangle-who-is-Katniss-going-to-pick drama was so tedious. In all, I would really only recommend reading this book if you have read the previous two. Reviewed by Alex Chiodo.
Mediocreand Dark Part 1
Getting straight to the point, I thought this book was very mediocre. Overall, after reading the series, I thought there was very little character development through Katniss as she is protagonist throughout the series. Her character doesnt learn anything or grow or evolve by the end of the last book, which in some sense is understandable because she is dealing with the traumas of war and all the horrible events she has had to endure. However, in saying that, there is nothing I took away that really made her a rememberable character to me. Yes, she has faced and had to deal with so many horrible situations, but there are very little things that she does that I really connected to as the reader in which I could learn from her actions or get behind her and really root for her character and what shes doing. I expected more from her as the protagonist. As reviewed by Alex Chiodo
