Mockingjay Review

MockingjayMockingjay by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mockingjay was AMAZING! I don’t think that any review will do this book justice so I just want to touch on a few reasons you should read this book:

There is never a moment where you want to put this book down.

War is not pretty.

You will cry.

Everything you wondered about the first two books will be answered.

The ending is so worth it!

Katniss is the best character ever!


  1. Oooo wow.
    This may be the best review I've seen of this yet :)
    I have Mockingjay on my shelf and have not been able to bring my self to read it.
    I don't think I want to let go yet.

  2. Mockingjay is amazing. I don't understand the hate. It's a very realistic conclusion to the series. Sad? Oh, yeah. Epilogue? Beautiful. But there was one sad thing that I could've done without. (Parachute created by so-and-so that killed so-and-so..brutal, Suzanne, brutal!!)

  3. Gee: I haven't seen any hate reviews. I loved it from start to end. yep the parachute part was so emotional.

    Juju: Drop everything and read it asap!

  4. I didn't really get into this book. Hunger Games was so amazing I finished it in one sitting and immediately order the second. But I felt like the second and third books just dragged a little. I hated the ending to Mockingjay. It just didn't make sense after getting to know Katniss. I don't feel like that is what the girl at the beginning of the series would have chosen.

  5. You liked it that much??? I hated it with a passion. I thought she went far from what the first two books were like into this weird psychological drivel. the entire time I was reading it I wasn't sure that it was really the same series, if Katniss was really the same character I fell in love with in the first two books. She took out everything from the first two I loved, the complicated relationship with Peeta, the "enemy can be your friend" concept etc. and turned it into something strange and unlikable.

  6. I'm afraid I was a bit disappointed by this book. As a piece of literature, it is excellently written, but I wish things had turned out differently with Peeta. The author was consistent, though, I'll give her that: Katniss stays true to herself. Ultimately, you really can't complete the series without it.
