Book Review: Mockingjay


Over the weekend, I finished Mockingjay (The Final Book of THE HUNGER GAMES). From Amazon:

Following her subversive second victory in the Games, this one composed of winners from past years, Katniss has been adopted by rebel factions as their symbol for freedom and becomes the rallying point for the districts in a desperate bid to take down the Capitol and remove President Snow from power. But being the Mockingjay comes with a price as Katniss must come to terms with how much of her own humanity and sanity she can willingly sacrifice for the cause, her friends, and her family. Mockingjay is a fitting end of the series that began with The Hunger Games (2008) and Catching Fire (2009). However, the book is not a stand-alone; readers do need to be familiar with the first two titles in order to appreciate the events and characters in this one.

I had heard that the second & third books weren't as good as the first. In fact, most of my friends didn't even recommend reading all three books. This was not my experience. I thoroughly enjoyed reading all three books & I highly recommend them. They're Young Adult books, so it's pretty easy reading. These would be perfect beach/vacation books, or something to do on a weekend where you don't have a lot of plans. Once these books get going, they're hard to put down. Report back!
