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)

    "Pretty Good Finale for a Great Series"

    If you are a Hunger Games fanatic, it is probably essential that you read all three books, as the trilogy gives you the fullest possible view of this intricate and rich world that Collins has built. Being a politics junkie and also someone who loves a good dystopian story, I enjoyed Katniss' travels through the Hunger Games, her home district, and the trouble that followed her through all three books.

    I have to admit, however, that my alertness tended to decrease with Book Two (Catching Fire), and then decreased a little more with Mockingjay. There's nothing terrible about this book, and in fact it's quite good, but I think Collins started the series with such an exceptional book that the other two can't quite keep up the intensity. In The Hunger Games, Katniss is thrown into a terrible situation as soon as the first chapter, and we learn about her twisted nation only as a backdrop to her gripping journey.

    In Books Two and Three, the backdrop is now the main story. And it feels like all the political intrigue becomes a major information dump, as the characters must deal with the fallout of Katniss' performance in the first book. So I would argue that Book One provides the biggest thrills, and the next two books are all fall-out from that, despite Collins' efforts to imbue Two and Three with high-stakes events.

    Overall, though, I would definitely suggest all three books as comprising a satisfying story, despite my slight reservations above. And McCormick's performance of all three books is flawless, too.

    "Wrecks the whole series"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who likes abrupt anticlimactic endings, which explain nothing.


    What could Suzanne Collins have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Actually created an ending. It seems she just strung some random events together and doesn't bother explaining the hows and whys. It is very frustrating. I am still waiting for closure in the story!


    What didn’t you like about Carolyn McCormick’s performance?

    She sounds like an older woman. More like my sweet grandmother.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. Total and complete Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    If you read one and two, just stop. Make your own ending it will probably offer more closure and explanations than the real one.

    "I couldn't put it down"
    What did you love best about Mockingjay?

    The story is disturbing in many ways, but it was also fascinating and addicting. I couldn't stop listening to it and couldn't wait to get out of work to keep listening. I even spent one whole weekend listening to the trilogy of books. I've encouraged my kids to read all three books in the trilogy as well, as I really think it's an easy way for them to understand the historical background of such horrific events as the holocaust. It makes our natural human reactions to threat and intimidation much more understandable. Particularly if your teen has expressed the sentiment that Nazi Germany couldn't happen here......think again, it can happen anywhere. This is a fun and fascinating way to examine the underlying beliefs, and human impulses that we all experience, only in an exaggerated way. I'm a therapist specializing in PTSD and this is certainly an excellent characterization of our natural responses to dangerous and horrifying situations.


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

    Yes, I couldn't stop listening.

    "Total letdown"
    Would you try another book from Suzanne Collins and/or Carolyn McCormick?

    I wouldn't try another book read by Carolyn McCormick. I would probably try another Suzanne Collins book because I did like the first book in this series but this 3rd book was a total letdown. The series went from good to ok to horrible.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    My next read will probably be something funny and up beat.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Carolyn McCormick’s performances?

    Absolutely not. The reader was clearly reading the book and this was not much of a performance at all. Boring, monotone and lacked enthusiasm.

    I love audiobooks! They allow me to do my daily chores and get a book read at the same time.

    Story
    "Very well done and a great talent"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mockingjay to be better than the print version?

    Nothing is better than the book itself. I usually don't like audiobooks but I thought I would try it with this series because I love the books so much. The talent that is reading does a great job, she really emits the emotion of the characters and she does well developing their voices to distinguish dialogues. I love listening just as much as I love reading this story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love everything about this story. The type of story, the characters, setting, plot, and the energy. This story always keeps you moving. There is never a dull moment.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    She really did well with the voices. She made the dialogues real. I was skeptical at first. A woman doing all the voices of the characters male and female, but she did phenomenal.


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

    No, I would listen at work, in the car, and at home.

    "Not as good as the first"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    You won't miss anything but skipping this one. As, I enjoyed the first book about hunger games and wanted to know what happens next I picked up the last two. Unfortunately, this did not meet my expectation. There was no former intensity and it felt quite flat.

    "Who's still playing The Game?"
    Where does Mockingjay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It ranks third in the series of the hunger games series. And as for series the Hunger games ranks third in all my listening of books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Make me think of what our world may become if things don't change.


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

    Sorry no


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Katniss shot Coin, I think she has finely started to think about the future and figured out that both Coin and Snow had played her and nothing was going to change with the Hunger Games. Snow was going to die anyway (cuoghing up blood as he was) so her only shot at trying to get things changed was to shoot Coin at that time and place.
