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)

    A realistic story line.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Suzanne Collins again?

    Probably not

    Everything in the capital city. The pods? Inane.


    Any additional comments?

    I have no idea why I finished this series other than they were my first books from Audible and it was something to listen to while driving to work or walking the dog

    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.

    "Every chapter was like the last......"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Suzanne Collins again?

    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.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    She was PERFECT.... she really captured each character! I enjoy listening to her, its like listening to music. Please keep her around.


    What character would you cut from Mockingjay?

    The entire district 13 crew...... didn't care for the part of the story.

    "It Was Pretty Good, But.."

    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.

    "A great series of opportunities wasted"

    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.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The socially challenged


    What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    She is an excellent narrator. Good emotion and great diction.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mockingjay?

    All the ones involving the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "TWO THUMBS UP"
    Would you listen to Mockingjay again? Why?

    Listening again ... YES!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved everyone in the series. All the pieces fit into a great series.


    What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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...


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    This series was an excellent "read" and I am sure the movie can not do it justice.

    "A Tad too violent for me"

    Having listened to the previous 2 books, I still dislike the narrators flat, monotone voice as the main character...they should not have let her sing for sure. Having said that, her characterisations/voices are better than the main characters voice, which is unusual.

    I personally found this final book a little tedious, in spite of the action and was in fact relieved when it was over. Too much tummy button gazing with the internal monologues and spoken thoughts for my taste.

    I also found that there was uncessary level of detail on the torture and violence, which was almost continuous throughout the book.

    Having said that the plot was interesting with some surprises in store, so if you liked the prevous two books, you will not dislike this one...but not as good as the others in my view.

    "Weakest of the trilogy"

    Having listened to the first two books I had to finish the series. I had hoped that Catching Fire suffered from 'middle book of trilogy syndrome' and Mockingjay would be an incredible ending... but sadly it was the weakest book of the lot. I found it hard to invest in Katniss and the other main characters (something that wasn't the case in the previous two books) and the plot was far weaker than either of the previous books. I wasn't expecting a happily ever after ending but I was still dissatisfied with the actual ending. It just didn't sit right with me. It is worth listening to if you have read/listened to the other books, but keep your expectations low.

    "At the edge of my seat"

    As I had been waiting for since around the end of the first book or the beginning of the second, the Rebellion is in full swing. And while it does not play out like I had expected, it keeps the sense of realism which hooked me on the first book. The unexpectedness of the series in general is one thing that I really like about it.

    There are no easy fixes for our main characters, but at the same time it is not all hopelessly dark either. Even though in this book, more than the others, the bright spots are few and far between.

    If you have already read the other books, you definitely need to read the ending to the story. But if you have randomly stumbled upon this, and are reading the reviews to see what it's about, go and read/listen to the first book in the series; The Hunger Games.

    Because this series does what really great SciFi does, it makes you forget it is about the future, and merely uses a made-up environment as a backdrop to explore the human condition. Though this one is hauntingly close to what we could find real. I found this book to be a wonderful conclusion. True, there is no Hollywood ending where every this is made okay, but it is not a greek tragedy either, where everyone are doomed from the beginning.

    This series is quickly become one of my favorites, and I really like Carolyn McCormick's narration of it.

    "Game Over... but do they live happily ever after?"

    Katniss Everdeen is still fighting for her life. The Rebels have taken up their weapons in a seemingly useless war against the Capitol and its leader, the maniacal President Snow. Katniss has been used as a catalyst for war, manipulated into becoming The Mockingjay: a figurehead of political resistance, by another would-be-totalitarian leader, when all she ever wanted was to protect those she loves and live out a relatively peaceful existence.

    However, the final book of The Hunger Games trilogy offers anything but peace. This is, by far, the most harrowing of the series. The book has received criticism from some for being "too dark", but surely Suzanne Collins needed to be dark in order to deal with the subjects of political oppression, identity crises, PTSD and familial loss? She affords her YA audience the respect of not "dumbing down" the messages of her series.

    District 12 is gone. Katniss' best friend, Gale, is slowly becoming as ruthless in his methods as any of the game-makers ever were. And Peeta is gone, his mind "hijacked" by the Capitol so that now whenever he looks at Katniss, he feels the overwhelming urge to kill her. Katniss is slowly losing everything she has and everything she is to the war. And there's more to lose.

    If you're looking for happy endings then I can't say that this is a book/series for you. After losing so much, fighting so much and both feeling and causing so much pain, how could Katniss get a fairytale "happily ever after"? She's fighting a war and thus there are inevitable casualties... some of them heart-wrenching.

    If, however, you're looking for a great read with characters whose plight will keep you gripped, writing which echoes the dystiopia it weaves, and a heroine who is pretty darn cool, then I can't recommend The Hunger Games Trilogy enough!

    "poor ending!!!!!"

    Last book in the trilogy, but really a dissapointing end to a excellent series. The third instalment is poorly paced and at times very badly written with contradictions of things which were mentioned earlier. Leaves a few questions un answered, and with the ending we are given leaves you wondering what was the point of this book being written in the beginning, as it defeats itself in the point it was trying to make.....
