GUEST REVIEW: Mockingjay (Book 3 in The Hunger Games Trilogy)

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins – reviewed by Nic

Description from Goodreads:

Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Kattnis, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.

Pre-ordered the final book in the series expecting an “OMG – I can’t believe it” sequel, and was sadly disappointed.

Although I’m glad I read it, and enjoyed it, it was not heart pounding, as the summary suggests.  The book was uneventful for more than half… and then kind of cold and violent for the rest.  Katniss isn’t as strong a character in this one, and is idle in much of the book.

The greatest thing about Peeta is his wonderful personality, and you don’t get to see that.  The “love triangle” was pretty much ignored (and was a significant part in the first 2).  Things happen, exciting things, but it’s just not the same as the others.

Read it, definitely, but only to see where the story goes…
