The final book of The Hunger Games Trilogy is titled ‘Mockingjay. This books takes place right after Katniss is rescued from the second Hunger Game her and Peeta were forced into. Unfortunately Peeta was not rescued with her. President Snow has officially declared war on her and she is now the figurehead, Mockingjay, for the rebellion against the government. While there is a lot of action in this book, as with the previous novel, there is also a lot of time spent within Katniss’ head. She is trying to figure out what she really wants to do. Does she want to be a figurehead of this rebellion? Who can she really trust out of the people around her? What is her purpose in this life?

In the mean time the districts are rebelling against the government with the help of the long thought dead District 13, which is the rebellion headquarters. There are a lot of new characters and places in this book. We especially what District 13 has been up to for all of those years. President Coin is the person in charge of the rebellion and seems to have her own personal agenda on top of getting the districts free.

Overall, the book was amazing. As with the second book, I cried my eyes out. In fact I cried pretty much throughout the whole book. Every other page it seemed like something happened or Katniss went through something that just touched me. The ending wasn’t all happily ever after, that wouldn’t be realistic at all. Nothing was miraculously better once they won the war. But it made sense and the story still felt like it ended well.

This entire series was amazing and original and fun. I consider it a must-read to pretty much anyone. I’ve heard that a movie is supposed to be coming out in a year or two based on the first book. I really hope they don’t ruin the spirit of the book, because it’s a really great story that deserves to be told well.

  1. At the end of this book I was SO exhausted. It just took everything out of me (in a good way:D). I’m glad to see you liked it a lot!! Suzanne Collins wins at writing good books!
