Review: Mockingjay

Posted on Updated on

Mockingjay Book Review
4 of 5 stars to Mockingjay, the third book in the “Hunger Games” young adult trilogy published in 2010 and written by Suzanne Collins. Although I loved this book, it’s my least favorite of the three in the series, as it’s less about the actual challenge to survive against the other districts, which is what made the books so fun for me. It’s all about revolution against the government and who is really fighting for the cause. Full of commentary on the world and society in general, the book is a struggle to obtain freedom and fix the errors of the past. All the favorite characters (who are still alive) are fighting. Several perish. Katniss makes her choice among Peeta and Gale. Families are put to test. Loyalties are shaken. It paints a bleak picture, but one worth fighting for. It’s a fitting end for the series, but it also makes you want to go back to re-read all 3 books over again. Good memories. 🙂

    I agree that Mockingjay is definitely the weakest book in the series, which is unfortunate since Collins built such a vivid and intriguing world but didn’t quite knock it out of the park in the final volume. Great review!

    I loved these books when I read them but it’s been so long ago I think it might be time for a re read.
