A super short review. I hope you don’t mind. 🙂
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games, #3
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.
Well, I’ve finally come to the last book in a trilogy that was not meant for me, but is still pretty fascinating. I wasn’t satisfied with the ending, but I don’t think I was supposed to be satisfied. After all, after all the hecticness, could we possibly end on a peaceful note? I think not. Still, it was disturbing. Of course, the whole series was disturbing.
This story is absolutely heartbreaking. Even more so than the other books. I enjoyed it … but it was sad. However, it was a well-written, interesting story – despite the depression.
There’s not much to say about this book that I didn’t say about the previous two books. I mean, seriously. We have pretty much the same characters and the same writing. The plot was very original and intense. It moved so fast that, at times, I was kind of spinning.
Violence and drama. No language or sexual content, really.
4/5 stars. Although it was an amazing story, it was super sad.
