Book Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Title: Mockingjay
Author: Suzanne Collins
First Published: August 24th 2010

Genre: YA, Dystopian
Pages: 390
Rating: 5 out of 5

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? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

 At a Glance:
I read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire back to back last year. I really loved them! I always wanted to read Mockingjay, but I got the chance to read it this year. I'm so glad I read it! Few friends told me that the book is a dissapointment, and that it's not as good as the first two. I don't know what they were talking about! Mockingjay was magnificent! I loved it!

There isn't a lot of romance in Mockingjay. I mean, almost not at all. 

A LOT OF ACTION!!!!! Every single chapter was filled with action! It made the plot go so fast! 

Katniss Everdeen is my favorite character of all times! I mean, she is so strong, confident and yet, she is herself! In these three books she goes in soo many emotional rides, I feel sorry for her. Those two deaths at the end almost broke my heart!

Peeta, Finnick and Gale... All great heros! They did all to protect Katniss, their loved one. Though, Suzanne Collins decided that three heros is a lot, so decided to break out hearts and kill one of them. 

Things I liked:
I liked that it was full of action. I liked District 13. I liked the epilogue. 

Things I disliked:
Sometimes I thought that the writing style was like... to much. Like, sometimes I'd forget what Katniss was trying to say or think when she started that thought. 

Would I recommend it?
YES FOR SURE. This book is a total must read. Like it's preceders, it's an action paced, full of greatness novel. It will make you think about yourself and the world around you.

5 out of 5 stars

*Thanks again to Mrs Michelle for sending me this book. You are so good and so nice! I have only good words to say for you. Thanks!

Mockingjay was a beautiful book, I literally cry with this, a beutiful end... The book it is so amazing, Katniss, Peeta, and my favorite Finnick (I still hate you Suzanne you know why).

Obviously my favorite will always be The Hunger Games.
great review!

FINNICK. <3 Oh how I loved him. I cried SO hard in Mockingjay! And Gale, how could you?! Ahhhh this was such a great ending to the trilogy (although I wish we could get like a spin-off series from the future). And I agree, Katniss is one of the best female characters!

Cinna is still my favorite character of the whole series, though! </3
