Still hungry? Listen to more Hunger Games.

"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)
As good as the first two books.
Have had a hard time limiting myself to only listen while on a trip.
Yes, it was time well-spent. I was driving on a 5-6 hour trip and it kept me entertained for the trip down and back.
Yes, I just downloaded the third book in the series
She was very easy to listen too. She managed the different voices with ease.
Definitely. I did see the movie tied in to book 1 and I would go to see this one in movie format too.
A slow start but stay with it. The arena experience is satisfying and now I am enticed to read the final book in the series.
In a word... letdown. The story plods along, rehashing and re-telling old stories until the last few chapters where things get interesting only to have the main characters enter a pointless struggle, then alot of tedious, boring fill in the blank storytelling. A weak ending to a decent trilogy.
The the right people come out on top. There are a lot more characters involed in this story
Level voice and we are able to connect with the character
I hope that there's another one
I have loved books every since I could read. During my elementary & high school days I spent my time in libraries getting books to read.
A riveting, emotional, and more than expected ending to a well written spectacular arena's beginning.
A realistic story line.
Everything in the capital city. The pods? Inane.
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.
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.
