Caithness Everdeen is the main character in this trilogy, but I found myself always wondering about Peeta. I adored his unrelenting affection for Caithness, even though she seemed unable to think about the possibility of a serious relationship with anyone. I was a Peeta fan through all three books. He was smart, strategic, soft, and even sly when he needed to be.
In the beginning I thought Peeta might turn out to be the brians in the operation of this threesome, but at the end I felt like it was Haymitch all along. Maybe Peeta and Caithness woke up the person inside of him.
At first, I didn't really like the narrator, but by the middle of the first book she had really grown on me.
There were a number of unexpected plot twists that kept me wondering what would happen next. It could have been a predictable ending (and started out looking like it might be) but it wasn't.
There were a few good ones but I don't want to give any spoilers.
I think the prologue was my favorite.
THE WRITTER SHOULD HAVE STOP AT BOOK TWO THIS ONE LEFT YOU KIND OF DRY. I THINK SHE SHOULD HAVE FINISHED IT UP IN THE SECOUND BOOK.
I loved this book. I'd rather be reading this book than anything else. I enjoyed the characters in this book and found the story line interesting.
Catness was by far my favorite character. She was brave and would do anything to protect those she loved.
Maybe Peter. He always stuck to his beliefs.
The part where Rue died made me cry when she started singing to her.
A wonderful wrap up to a great series! Again, Carolyn McCormick voice carries throughout the entire story and brings to life all the memorable characters that I love from this series. I highly recommend these audiobooks!
I think she is a master of bringing the different characters to life.
A lot of surprises.
This last book was not as enjoyable as the first two. The first two, I could not put down. This one I wanted to fast forward to get to the end..and then the end was a little disappointing.
You definately need to finish the series, because the first two leave you hanging. This book makes you feel satisfied enough... don't need to wonder anymore about the Mocking Jay.. it was OK, but not as good as the first two.
The performance for the audio was well done by the reader.Otherwise, I thought the story spun down into darker and darker depths. The Hunger Games was a novel idea, but the following books were just a continuous series of tales about the worst of the human spirit. Can anyone count the number of deaths and horrid ways to die and be tortured that are encountered in the two-book followup. The book should have just stopped at Hunger Games - each person's imagination about what would come next would be far better than the story that Suzanne Collins decided to write.Sad, ugly, don't get this audible tape.
No, never, not in a lifetime.
I thought she was a good reader of the unfortunate book.
No. Mockingjay was an unfortunate continuation of the Hunger Games. If it can be withdrawn from the book and audio shelves all the better.
I am not expecting cute fairy tale endings but this book was simply grotesque and torturous for both the characters and the reader. Dear reader/listener -- You have been forewarned ! Don't get this audio book!
