Publisher's Summary

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

Still hungry? Listen to more Hunger Games.

©2010 Suzanne Collins (P)2010 Scholastic Audio

What the Critics Say

"At its best the trilogy channels the political passion of 1984, the memorable violence of A Clockwork Orange, the imaginative ambience of The Chronicles of Narnia and the detailed inventiveness of Harry Potter." (New York Times Book Review)

"Unfolding in Collins' engaging, intelligent prose and assembled into chapters that end with didn't-see-that-coming cliffhangers, this finale is every bit the pressure cooker of its forebears. [Mockingjay] is nearly as shocking, and certainly every bit as original and thought provoking, as The Hunger Games. Wow." (Los Angeles Times)

"Fans will be happy to hear that Mockingjay is every bit as complex and imaginative as Hunger Games and Catching Fire." (Entertainment Weekly)

    Story
    "Decent books,but mostly a " Bodice ripper".."
    What did you like best about Mockingjay? What did you like least?

    Giving soap operas and "Bodice Rippers" their due, I stayed commited to the listening of all three books before my judgement was made final. It has remained the same throughout. The target audience here would not be male in general. There were a few instances that crossed the lines of gender association, for lack of a better description. Simply put, I prefer Jason Bourne/ Dirk Pit type charactors.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    If I wanted to examine a charactor's innermost feelings as they seem to rise and fall with the cycles of the moon, I'd be a woman I guess. For me, it's just not what I enjoy. A woman torn between love and lust. Anguishing over the betrayal of a steadfast and totally devoted man. ARRRRRGH! Blech! Get to the ACTION and REACTION! Get technical! While the author was graphic and many times gave a masculine descriptive in her writing, the relaying of the protagonist's feeling felt like a squealing piece of chalk on a board to me. I know, I'm a guy... not in touch with my inner self, or my deepest feelings, yadda, yadda, yadda, Those episodes of introspection detracted from my full enjoyment of the books.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I kept seeing the face of Al Bundie's wife from " Married with Children" when I listened to her. This isn't to say she was bad. In fact I enjoyed her naration very much. I just could'nt shake that image, despite the main charactor's being a teenager.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't change your style or type of writing. Just realize you appeal to some readers more than others?

    "Great story, poor narration"
    What didn’t you like about Carolyn McCormick’s performance?

    The narrator gave almost every character in the book a royal English accent, which became very distracting throughout the entire book.

    "I loved this series!"
    If you could sum up Mockingjay in three words, what would they be?

    A perfect ending.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Collin's futuristic version of our world -- and the warning it has for all of us.


    Have you listened to any of Carolyn McCormick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I have listened to all three Hunger Games books. I found McCormick's narration good.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Of course Mockingjay will lead you to an extreme reaction. You have to feel for this heroine and the other characters -- as well as examine your own life and our culture.


    Any additional comments?

    I know there have been a lot of negative reviews of this last book in the series. These reviews kept me from listening to this story for several months. BUT I am so glad I finally let go of what others were saying and took the ride. It was amazing. I disagree with the negative views of how the story ends -- no, it is not a "perfect ending" for all the characters (are there ever perfect endings?) but it was perfect ending for this story. I loved it. I was moved by it. I am sad that I will not get to spend any more time in Collin's Panam, but I feel sated and happy with how this story wrapped up. If you've enjoyed the other books, but feel hesitant about some negative reviews -- DON'T -- download, listen and enjoy!

    "Satisfying Conclusion"

    I've thoroughly enjoyed this series of books. As others have mentioned, Mockingjay is the darkest installment of the three; rebellions are violent events that often involve a heavy toll. Given that, I wasn't expecting "...and they all lived happily ever after.", but hoped that some good would come of things. Suzanne did not disappoint me.

    "What happened to the Love Story?"
    Any additional comments?

    Yes, the trilogy is about government corruption and the evils of war, but it is also a love story. Collins fully develops the former in the first two books and the third book Mockingjay gives a 'satisfying' and realistic conclusion. However, I was left disappointed and frankly ticked off that the conclusion of the love story was an afterthought. Throughout the trilogy Collins develops a love triangle. The developing love story was emotionally charged. Who doesn’t enjoy a good love triangle? In the last chapter of the Mockingjay, the love story finally comes to its's climax. ..and…and…she ends the book mid thought. My mouth dropped open, my stomach churned and I wanted to holler - I did. I wasn’t asking for much; not even a happy ending. The last chapter didn’t resemble the rest of the book – full of detail and imagery. Did she even write the last chapter? Did she give it to an intern for an assignment in ‘how not to write?’ Collins had me emotionally invested. She built up my interest and enthusiasm then didn’t deliver goods on one of the most important subjects of the book. Her main attention was inhumanity – which I’m not saying wasn’t important. It was a darn good part of the book. Even when there is a measure of peace the casualties still walk the earth – the living. They are daily reminded of their lost loved ones and the horrors they witnessed.

    It seems as if Collins’ goal was to highlight vices of a corrupt government, war, and its aftermath, not to satisfy our need for details of a love story that she developed in the first two books. It’s not fair, but I have to accept her literary viewpoint.

    Even with my criticism, Collins is a master at writing emotionally charged; sit on the edge of your seat stories. I would love to read more of her books.

    "No Don't Let It End!!! Wish there was more!!!"
    Would you listen to Mockingjay again? Why?

    Yes,I already have.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mockingjay?

    When the children were in the square and the bombs exploded.


    Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

    They all were good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, the whole series was.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was more to the series. I saw the movie and I think that they could have dne a better job. after reading the books I was disappointed in the movie because it changed some key points of the book, like where Katniss got the pin. I just felt the could have stayed more true to the books.

    "Unexpected Storyline"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mockingjay to be better than the print version?

    I would not consider this to be the case, because you can't just skim over the parts where Katniss is whining.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was disappointed and felt as though there was no true conclusion; things abruptly ended.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader was fantastic, but this story was nothing like the first two. Katniss just came across as a whiny little girl, and while I understand that she has been through alot, that is not what I want to hear about. I wanted action like the first two novels, and got alot of drag in the plot.

    "A children's book? REALLY? NOT!!"

    I wish that I would have not listened to the hype about this trilogy.I wish that I could erase the fact that I read/listened to them at all. I wish that I never bought them at all.

    Hunger Games was the tamest of the three, but all of them detailed starvation, deranged so-called "leaders" who were just plain SICK in all ways imaginable. This book and the trilogy in general just left me with a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. That the Hunger Games was filmed in my state just made it all that much worse. It has been a really long time since a work of fiction has made me feel so much rage for the characters. I felt rage at the injustices thrown at them, the abuse heaped upon them, and the games that these kids were subjected to. **Sigh** How it was classified as a children's book totally astounds me. Do NOT read this book if you have ever suffered any sort of abuse in your life, as triggers are written all through the 3 books.
