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)

    "The Hunger Games Trilogy does not disappoint."
    Any additional comments?

    The Trilogy is written with a 7th grade vocabulary, but written so well a voracious reader will not object.

    "Carolyn McCormick did not cut it"
    Any additional comments?

    Overall I enjoyed this series but I wanted to echo what some other readers have already said: I didn't think the narrator was right for the job. The voice (Katniss) wasn't too bad but the performance seemed very off, there was strange emphasis on words that didn't allow for sentences flow and I didn't enjoy any of the other character voices. I definitely won't be purchasing anything else read by Carolyn McCormick.

    "Well narrated...Horrible book"
    What disappointed you about Mockingjay?

    Was there a rule that said there HAD to be a third book? That's how it feels while you are listening to the story. I was very disappointed and even annoyed at the character by the time the book drew to a close. The first two were good. This one was really bad! I wish I had gotten something else.

    "Worst of the series"
    What did you love best about Mockingjay?

    Loved books 1 and 2 - by the time book 3 came around, honestly it was just more of the same. I really wanted to love it, but didn't.

    "Revolution less satisfying as a story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The trilogy starts with its strongest book and ends with its weakest. Collins is at her best when she describes the Hunger Games and the dystopia behind it. When she writes about the process of revolution, however, the result feels less compelling to me. She tries to give too much of the big picture through Katniss. Also, Collins is too casual in killing off characters toward the end.

    "So Incredibly Disappointing"

    Here is where writing for a teen audience destroys this series. Katniss has turned into an angst ridden, mopey teenager. She's lost her sweetness and approachability and has become a whiney and self destructive train reck.

    Maybe from a teenager's perspective it would go down easier but a 17 year old with this much control: coming up with speeches off the cuff powerful enough to intimidate a president and carry an uprising is thoroughly ridiculous and completely out of character for her. Then there was the action movie cliche of disobeying orders an barely escaping while saving the day. Blah, blah, blah.

    By the end of this book, I hated every single character except Gale. I was so stunned by the terrible ending that I was unable to express my disappointment for hours. How could she write 2 books so well and flop so badly on the last? It truly ruined the entire series for me.

    "this is a very good book"

    It is so sad i cry in some parts. I love the series but this is the best.
    I thank that some series put so much in book one & book two that there is not a lot in the 3rd parts of the series but this is just right.

    "Could have been better"

    Maybe I'm just too old, could have had more substance at the end. I'll leave the kids books to the kids.

    "Not good."

    This book was terrible compared to the first book. The second book was just okay. The whining by Katniss in the third book was so annoying. I can't believe how badly this series went down hill. Read/listen to the Hunger Games then pretend that was the last book so your not disappointed.

    "Unbelievable, terrible..."

    The first two books in this series were good, not as good as the reviews here, but good.

    This book is nonsensical. Characters are thrown away without any common sense, the main character's hero complex is blindly followed by adults in the story... totally unbelievable. This here has no special ability, no super powers, just a bad attitude and severe mental issues... but that is good enough for characters to just dash after her to their demise.

    Then to top it off, the goose chase in the last 2/3 of the book comes to an end with a big empty nothing.

    The ending was okay, but the first 3/4 is like wading through trash.

    The narration was excellent at times.
