"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)
I never really thought I would love the series because I normally like more of the supernatural series, but I happened to see the preview of the 1st hunger games and read some of the reviews on here and thought why not take a chance. I will tell you in was not a waste of my time I was able to read all three books in under a week I could not go without knowing what was going to happen next!!! the only thing is I wish they would have gave more in the end of the book ....... when you read this you will know why!
there is another series called the Uglies series by Scott Westerfield that you most likely will feel the same about it has a bunch of twisted and turns but its more real then most science fiction books out there.....
I honestly could not think of just one spot that was my favorite all the books were heart stopping and I could not put them down
Love, Fantasy, Action, and Reality
The last book concluded the trilogy beautifully as Collins didn't sugar coat the ending. Collins made the whole story very real with the true color of war at its ugliest and how slowly the main characters are recovering from their devastating ordeals for the past two books.
I am new to audiobooks and I amazed at what an artform narrating a book can be. McCormick does a masterful job of making the listener believe that characters are actually speaking.
Satisfying ending to the series, believable transformations in the characters, whole are still tangibly endearing throughout their growth.
The performance was good, just as in the two previous books in the series. Just my personal opinion here - but I found it this particular one to be depressing and lacking the excitement of the others. I still enjoyed the series overall and would recommend at least the first two books. This one, maybe not quite as much though.
Say something about yourself!
I really enjoyed these books... can't wait to see if the movie will be as good. I hope so.
This is one of the best series I've read in a while! It has everything...action, suspense, gut-wrenching emotion, political corruption. It made my 1-hr commute to work each day seem to last only a few minutes.
The final book of the three was crushing, thought provoking, and had you on the edge of your seat. I read a prior review of this third book that stated the end was "disappointing" and I was waiting for the disappointing or inappropriate ending that never came. It had me reeling for days after the book ended.
Same complaints as with the other books. Annoying inner dialog from Katniss. Annoying pseudo-relationships between Katniss and the boys. Annoying narrator. You just want to know how it ends. And the ending? Kind of a let-down. Maybe I'm too old for these books.
After reading all three books in the trilogy, I can say that my least favorite is Mockingjay. I did enjoy it, but it was definitely not my favorite.
