Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins : Review
Publication date: August 24th 2010
Published by: Scholastic Press
Genres: YA, Dystopian, Action
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 plans--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.
This book was amazing. A great ending to a great series. I was in floods of tears for the last quarter of the book, so I would recommend having a super happy book to read next.
The characters were great. We got introduced to Annie Cresta who thought she doesn't say a lot is my new favourite character ever. I liked how Peeta was portrayed throughout the books because I think it would have been easy for Suzanne to have turned him into a villain.
The plot was realistic or at least as realistic as a dystopian could be. It was fast paced yet still had all the impact that was in the previous books.
In conclusion, this review sucked, sorry. This book effected me so much I'm not sure words could ever be able to describe how much I loved it. I give this book 5/5.
