Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins – Book Review


The Girl on Fire has survived two Hunger Games, which she will never be able to forget.  After being pulled out of the arena by the rebels, she is starting to realize that things will never be the same again – Katniss is now the face of the rebellion, inspiring the rebels in her new position as The Mockingjay.  Peeta is now in the capitol and, under the influence of President Snow, is trying to persuade the rebels to order a ceasefire. Katniss, however, will do whatever it takes to destroy the capitol. Will the Mockingjay flourish? Will Panem turn to her in their time of need?

Katniss wasn’t as strong as she was in the other Hunger Games, which meant that she spent quite a lot of time in the hospital. I know she has been through a lot, and she is finding it hard to cope, but I would have liked to have seen a bit more of her confident personality she showed in The Hunger Games.  Nevertheless, it was still a fast-paced read. I think this is a fitting end to the trilogy and I had hoped it would end the way it did.

I am really looking forward to seeing the film, so I can compare and see which I prefer. Which is your favourite?
