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)

    "Not a stirring finish"
    What disappointed you about Mockingjay?

    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.


    What was most disappointing about Suzanne Collins’s story?

    Resolution between Gale and Peta


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

    No

    Story
    "Hardcore, Strong Ending!"

    Everyone is right: the final installment is dark and gritty, but I thought it pulled together well. From the first book, this trilogy never felt like material for young-young adults. I think it'd meet a TV-14 rating and there sure isn't anything in this book that isn't already available to young adults via TV or video games. "The Hunger Games" left me yearning for more action: here are these gruesome games and we get very little graphic detail. "Catching Fire" showed that the characters were growing some backbone and took the series to a new level. "Mockingjay" barred none, and I respect it for that. If it had an abruptly "happy" ending -- good simply triumphs evil with no internal conflicts, everybody's all smiles and the people of Panem cheer as Katniss gets to marry both Gale and Peeta and float off into the sunset -- then I (and I'm sure many others) would've been highly upset. This book provides a realistic outcome, like it or not, and had it succumbed to the facade of a Utopian world to come, I think the entire message would have been lost. And I'm not sure what all of the complaints are about; the ending isn't far from perfect, in fact, it's perhaps the most plausible.

    My one complaint is that the book did crawl for quite a while and then throw everything into the last two to three hours. It still contained the most action of the series, but I'd say the first book was the most well-written and the second was the best at keeping my interest and keeping me guessing.

    If looking for another good series to jump into, I'd recommend Neal Shusterman's "Everlost" trilogy, and especially his book, "Unwind".

    "I haven't had as much fun since Dragon Tattoo!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mockingjay to be better than the print version?

    Don't know. Didn't read the print version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I had read some reviews that said it wasn't as good as the first two-- I thought it was just as good. It was different; but I thought it was a great ending to a great trilogy.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't say. It'd spoil it for someone.


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

    Yes... Unexpected death of someone close...


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't had as much fun since the Steig Larson "Dragon Tattoo" series.

    Any additional comments?

    Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I read the first two book and I loved them. The ending has a great TWIST and she ends up with the right guy! (I won't say who he is! lol!)

    "Too much unecessary"
    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I understand that this was an opportunity for Collins to make her social commentary wrap-up. I just wish she didn't beat me over the head with it.


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

    Katniss was my favorite character to the end.


    Any additional comments?

    You have to read it to finish the trilogy. I enjoyed book I and book II immensely more than the III. Although well done, I don't really agree with the execution of the story line. Not that I wanted it to be predictable, just the word that comes to mind is 'unnecessary.'" There are open questions that don't get resolved and resoltions that don't make sense. It is almost like after Collins finished her solical commentary, she just wanted it to be over. I loved the first two books, the third no so much.

    "Not so grand finale"

    Hunger Games and Catching Fire were both excellent books. I expected the trend to continue with Mockingjay, the finale of The Hunger Games trilogy. I was disappointed. This book picks up shortly after Catching Fire ends, with Katniss in the hospital. It was disappointing to see exactly how much of the book she spent in hospital. The book starts slowly, picks up steam in the second act, and ends basically on a whimper. Peeta is a non-actor for a large part of the book. I understand that she was trying to show the psychological damage Katniss suffered up to this point, but she mainly succeeds in painting Katniss as a stubborn and sullen girl who wants nothing more than to sulk about in District 13.
    Still, it is the conclusion to the trilogy and if one wants to journey with these characters to the end of their journey, one must read this book. It is still a good book despite its shortcomings, and Carolyn McCormick delivers her usual strong performance despite the weakness of the material. I recommend getting this book, but if you can use a credit or a discount for it, do so.

    "Needed for the series, but boring start for boys."

    Although the series is great, this book starts out boring for the first 9-10 chapters, and especially for boys (mine is 13). But when it picks up it is great.

    "Great Conclusion"

    After listening to Hunger Games, I finished the two final books in a 2 week period. I listened as much as possible and was pulled into the story. The books were so well written and I truly enjoyed the ending. I highly recommend this series!

    "The Ending Worth the Series"

    Mockingjay is very different from the first two installments. The book's structure is different, not centered around the games. It is slower, reflecting the mundane life in a confines of a secluded district. I would encourage you to look beyond your expectations of the action-packed events set up in the first two books. The main fire is burning inside our heroine. She does not know it yet, but from a clueless survivor she transforms into a solid, contemplating, mature human being.

    The ending is beautiful. The last main event questions everything and puts everything in its place. Oh yeah, and she ends up with the “right” boy and for the right reasons.

    PS By the third book I got used to the annoying narration by Carolyn McCormick. And her voice and pace finally fits for the last 20 minutes of the book
