Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3) by Suzanne Collins




Synopsis at www.goodreads.com

My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plains--except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay--no matter what the personal cost


My Comments:

Not only Book 2 left off with a cliffhanger ending. I was at lost too as my friend only have Book 1 and Book 2 of the trilogy.

No matter what, I HAD to know the ending. Hence, I took a gamble and googled. Found FREE e-book of the Mockingjay online. Usually I HATE reading e-books. It gives me headache but beggars can't be chooser, right.

I can say that the pace of this book was rather slow for me. Maybe too much time spend on writing about military stuffs and rules? It makes me feel as if the author not sure what else to write and how to close this book.

Adding so many new characters at this stages did not really makes the story seems to be more enjoyable

There are some pointless loss of lives in this but as everyone knows there are always lives loss in War . However, it still seems pretty pointless to me especially Katniss "mission" to kill President Snow.

The ending in my opinion does not really justified

Nevertheless am rating this book 3 stars as I still love it. I brings an ending to the story. The ending may not be to my liking but it's still an ending. At least, the author did not left me hanging and wondering the relationship between Peeta, Gale and Katniss
