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)

    "What happened to the Love Story?"
    Any additional comments?

    Yes, the trilogy is about government corruption and the evils of war, but it is also a love story. Collins fully develops the former in the first two books and the third book Mockingjay gives a 'satisfying' and realistic conclusion. However, I was left disappointed and frankly ticked off that the conclusion of the love story was an afterthought. Throughout the trilogy Collins develops a love triangle. The developing love story was emotionally charged. Who doesn’t enjoy a good love triangle? In the last chapter of the Mockingjay, the love story finally comes to its's climax. ..and…and…she ends the book mid thought. My mouth dropped open, my stomach churned and I wanted to holler - I did. I wasn’t asking for much; not even a happy ending. The last chapter didn’t resemble the rest of the book – full of detail and imagery. Did she even write the last chapter? Did she give it to an intern for an assignment in ‘how not to write?’ Collins had me emotionally invested. She built up my interest and enthusiasm then didn’t deliver goods on one of the most important subjects of the book. Her main attention was inhumanity – which I’m not saying wasn’t important. It was a darn good part of the book. Even when there is a measure of peace the casualties still walk the earth – the living. They are daily reminded of their lost loved ones and the horrors they witnessed.

    It seems as if Collins’ goal was to highlight vices of a corrupt government, war, and its aftermath, not to satisfy our need for details of a love story that she developed in the first two books. It’s not fair, but I have to accept her literary viewpoint.

    Even with my criticism, Collins is a master at writing emotionally charged; sit on the edge of your seat stories. I would love to read more of her books.

    "No Don't Let It End!!! Wish there was more!!!"
    Would you listen to Mockingjay again? Why?

    Yes,I already have.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mockingjay?

    When the children were in the square and the bombs exploded.


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

    They all were good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, the whole series was.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish there was more to the series. I saw the movie and I think that they could have dne a better job. after reading the books I was disappointed in the movie because it changed some key points of the book, like where Katniss got the pin. I just felt the could have stayed more true to the books.

    "Unexpected Storyline"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mockingjay to be better than the print version?

    I would not consider this to be the case, because you can't just skim over the parts where Katniss is whining.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was disappointed and felt as though there was no true conclusion; things abruptly ended.


    Any additional comments?

    The reader was fantastic, but this story was nothing like the first two. Katniss just came across as a whiny little girl, and while I understand that she has been through alot, that is not what I want to hear about. I wanted action like the first two novels, and got alot of drag in the plot.

    "A children's book? REALLY? NOT!!"

    I wish that I would have not listened to the hype about this trilogy.I wish that I could erase the fact that I read/listened to them at all. I wish that I never bought them at all.

    Hunger Games was the tamest of the three, but all of them detailed starvation, deranged so-called "leaders" who were just plain SICK in all ways imaginable. This book and the trilogy in general just left me with a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. That the Hunger Games was filmed in my state just made it all that much worse. It has been a really long time since a work of fiction has made me feel so much rage for the characters. I felt rage at the injustices thrown at them, the abuse heaped upon them, and the games that these kids were subjected to. **Sigh** How it was classified as a children's book totally astounds me. Do NOT read this book if you have ever suffered any sort of abuse in your life, as triggers are written all through the 3 books.

    "Gave into the hype...VERY DISSAPOINTING!"
    What did you like best about Mockingjay? What did you like least?

    the lead character is whiney, selfish and annoying. I loved the concept of the future USA in this book and the hunger games, etc...but I think the book "jumped the shark" when it introduces the mutt/wolves/dogs/dead character/being things. When they were introduced I exclaimed" ARE YOU SERIOUS! THAT IS SO DUMB!" I listened to all the books, hoping it would get better, the main characters would mature... to no avail. Thats what I get for reading/listening to a book with teenage characters...I cant relate...


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    I did like the narrator.


    Was Mockingjay worth the listening time?

    no

    "Readers voice"

    I loved this book, the story was great! The voice of the woman who read it however, was a different story! Her voice was grating and she made Katniss sound like an overly anxious and awkward girl instead of the strong, brave, even though sometimes desperate girl I had imagined. I'm not sure if the tinny sound of her voice was due to poor quality of the recording or if it was the woman's voice but it was irritating to the point that I wasn't sure I would actually finish listening to the book.

    "Reading superb, story a let down."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Mockingjay to be better than the print version?

    Yes .


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would change nothing about the reading. Carolyn McCormick was so good that when I tried to read the book myself I would go too fast to get as into it. Her pace and skill at dramatic reading takes the reader through every moment. So listening to her really maximizes the experience.

    As for the story itself: the things that "worked out" in the end did not make the agony worth it. The author cheated us out of satisfaction. I can respect her realism and avoidance of a typical "happy ending," but something was missing. I think Collins could have at least given us a good couple chapters on the reconciliation and love between Katniss and Peeta.
