Mockingjay

The Hunger Games - Mockingjay
By: Suzanne Collins

Outer back cover: Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But she's still not safe. A revolution is unfolding, and everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans - everyone except Katniss.
And yet she must play the most vital part in the final battle. Katniss must become their Mockingjay - the symbol of rebellion - no matter what the personal cost.

I am so glad I didn't know about this trilogy until all three books were finished! It would have been torture to have to wait for the next book to come out. This last book is just as good as the other two!

I think Collins has done a great job with writing about the revolution in this book and the war, as well as the emotions that Katniss is going through. there is so much happening all the time and so much excitement that it was really hard to put the book down, I had to give up trying to read on week nights before going to bed or I wouldn't have gotten any sleep before work.

There is especially much happening at the end of every book in this trilogy, which is nice because it makes it difficult to know what the outcome of the book would be. When this book was nearing its end I was worried that I wouldn't like the ending, that it would leave me wanting more, but as it turned out it was a great ending to the trilogy.

I'm not really sure who my favourite character is... I like Katniss but she'd not really my favourite, maybe Peeta. I just really like his personality, what his character stands for and reading about his problems in this book was really touching.

I would recommend this trilogy to anyone, I will definitely read the whole thing again!

Put off by all the hype I'm slowly beginning to come around to the fact that there is no escaping and I'm simply going to have to read these books for myself. Great review as always, thanks.
