Review: Mockingjay (Hunger Games, #3)

Standard

Mockingjay (Hunger Games, #3) by Suzanne Collins

Hardcover, 390 pages
Published August 24th 2010 by Scholastic Press

“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.” –Goodreads

Oh my gosh I so was not expecting what happened to happen! But I’m so glad that Katniss ended up who she did! And I can’t believe that the person who should be grateful for helping her become the new president does that to Prim. Its like saying “this is over I’m going to be like Snow now” to Katniss. I’m glad she did what she did. But if there was to be another novel, the consequences of her act, could be very bad for her.  But I also can’t believe that Gale created something that could be the tipping point in the war and it was what helped make Katniss’s decision on what to make.

Great ending. I cried a little. Very good!!!!!!

Overall: 5 out of 5
