Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3)
Add it on Goodreads!
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? Kat, her family, friends, and entire District 12.
This was a very exciting ending to The Hunger Games trilogy! This book had the most action in it of all three and several ups and downs. There are things I liked and things I definitely think should have been different. Katniss is as strong as ever and we can see at several points how hurt and traumatized she is from everything the Capitol has put her through. President Snow is a disgusting man and I imagine him as a horrible snake that was transformed human since he has that kind of personality.
Peeta’s change is quite surprising and it really hurt my heart that he was so different, but with what happened to him, yeah I would be different, too. There is just so much going on in this book! Things getting blown up, people dying, more things getting blown up, disturbing Capitol bred creatures showing up, explosions and more dying. There are not many slow points during this book. My biggest complaint, though, would have to be the way the uprising ended. It was a bit anticlimactic for me the way everything went down. I was hoping it was going to build for this huge blow out, but it didn’t have the bang I wanted it to.
I know this book is going to be hard to watch on the big screen. For those of you who have already read this book, you guys know what I’m talking about. I’m glad they will be splitting Mockingjay into two movies, so hopefully they will get everything the way it should be. I’m very excited for the movies and I really enjoyed this trilogy!
Action, hurt my heart, strong heroine, anticlimactic uprising.
