Mockingjay Book Review

Sep 13, 2010

It’s finally here: the third and final book in Suzanne Collin’s amazing Hunger Games series—Mockingjay.


After surviving the Hunger Games twice, Katniss Everdeen finds herself leading the rebellion against the corrupt Capital and the even more corrupt President Snow. It was Katniss’s actions in the first Hunger Games that originally defied the Capital, sending the 12 districts of Panem into a pandemonium.


District 13

The capital has already destroyed District 12—Katniss’s home—forcing the citizen’s to seek refuge with the rebels in District 13—an underground district that was destroyed and rebuilt years ago. Unwillingly, Katniss has become the face of the rebellion. A pawn in the rebels’ game. She must always be camera-ready so that the rebels can broadcast clips of their fight against the Capital to the nation.


Katniss’s Vengeance

But Katniss is a fighter. She has the best shot with a bow and arrow in all of Panem. And she wants to be on the front line in battle, to kill President Snow for the pain he caused her: for being devious and manipulative, for destroying her home, and for capturing and torturing her Hunger Games partner Peeta.


The Bottom Line

Mockingjay is different from the first two books in the series. For starters, there are no Hunger Games. Their nation has fallen into complete and utter chaos, and the war occupies the entire story. There is still a good mix of savagery and technology that made Suzanne Collins’ post-apocalyptic world so unique. While Collins is one of the best teen authors out there, Mockingjay is quite a lot to take in. So make sure you have the time and a clear head when you read it.

Driving isn't really a big deal. I waited until I was 18. Don't wait that long, but you don't need to rush.
