"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)
A book can get you out of your house, your town, even out of the country. I'm an avid reader believing reviews help find the good ones.
I loved the first book the Hunger Games but this last one just dragged on and on. Every chapter seemed to be the same, she gets hurt, she is healing, she is confused... on and on.. I could not wait to get to the end. Was very disapointed with it because I so enjoyed the first book and the second one wasn't bad either... this one stunk!
Yes I would listen to Suzanne Collins again... it seemed like on this last book she hurried through it and ran out of steam or was bored herself.
She was PERFECT.... she really captured each character! I enjoy listening to her, its like listening to music. Please keep her around.
The entire district 13 crew...... didn't care for the part of the story.
I had to buy this book and I am pleased the tables turned.
one word - Victory.
yes the whole series but I do have to work.
I came to know and care about the characters and their relationships. I loved the first book, really liked the second book, and only, kinda, sorta liked this third and last story. I gave it 4 stars because there were many shocking twists and turns as the District executed their plan to destroy the evil Capital and stop the Hunger Games. But it wasn't all good against evil because the methods used by the District to prepare and fight were many times dark and ugly, like a war without ethics, and it went on and on, over and over they conquered what the Capital threw at them. That was why it became tedious to me. It was like, "Take this! Take that! Take this! Take that!" All right already, can we move on?
The end finally came, bringing the original Hunger Games theme to fruition. The end included a good message, but it left me unfulfilled because those battling on the District's side were not pure and righteous, they too did things that would burn in their hearts forever. it was tragic and sad. I really wanted to feel happy and content when I finished this last book, but instead it left me restless.
As much as I enjoyed the first two installments of this trilogy, in the end, Mockingjay could have been much, much more than it was. Collins spends the first two books establishing a beautifully orchestrated political commentary, then instead of spending this book bringing the commentary to a head, barely touches upon the newly-established themes involving District 13. The finale seemed thrown together instead of developed, and in the end there are still too many unanswered questions for this to be a worthwhile conclusion to the story.
It was pretty good but not my favorite. I wasn't a big fan of the narrator. She sounded a bit whiny,
The socially challenged
She is an excellent narrator. Good emotion and great diction.
All the ones involving the main character.
Catness Everdeen is one of the weakest, self centered, idiot heroines that I have ever read. How this book series ever got the ratings that it did just proves how low people's standards are getting. It was a grave disappointment from beginning to end.
Listening again ... YES!
I loved everyone in the series. All the pieces fit into a great series.
The Hunger Games series was a look into the human mind from several points. You not only have to think about the main people, but what drives everyone to attempt the bend everyone else to what they think is the "best" for all...
I smiled and laughed several times. The series was written in a way to keep the "reader" having to second guess if what they were focused on was the true emotion or what an outside force wanted you to feel.
This series was an excellent "read" and I am sure the movie can not do it justice.
It's the weakest in the series but that's just because it ties up the first two books in a neat little package.
any rebellion story.
she brings the charters to life.
it was and i did try.
My phone didn't download the last 39 minutes of the story and I felt like a crack addict looking for wifi to get it.
country music nurse
Not as good as the Hunger Games first part.
Others were better
I loved the first book in this series; I was engaged in the 2nd book; but the 3rd book was a struggle to get through. It was as if Collins felt she had to extend this to three books but ran out of captivating material. Stephen King would have wrapped this story into a single book and saved us all a little money. I won't give too much away for those of you who haven't started the 3rd book, but I was really disappointed in how Collins handled the resolution of Catniss' decision over Peta and Gayle. As a fundamental theme in all three books, I was shocked that it was resolved in an "off hand" way near the end of the book. I wish I would have saved my 3rd credit.
