Publisher's Summary

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)

    "Great Narration"

    Great narration easy to listen. It's not going to (or at least it shouldn't) win any awards, but it was worth the $.

    "Book 3 of Hunger Games"
    Where does Mockingjay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In terms of novels it's ok...not normally my genre of literature, but I thought I'd give it a try. .


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    What I discover is that the story becomes redundant...like Harry Potter, these books seem to capitalize on a theme, over and over again. I wouldn't purchase another of her books.

    "still worth reading."

    Not the best of the trilogy but still worth reading. I felt that the story was dragged out a little too far in this book, it should have concluded after the second book.

    "Not as good as the first two."
    Where does Mockingjay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have to say this ranks pretty low. It wasn't nearly as good as the first two books. The turned Katniss into a weak and whiny character until the end. Even then she doesn't show much character. I think this could have been done better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the very end when Katniss finally ends up with one of the boys and has a family. I won't say which in case someone hasn't listened to this book.


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

    Of the three I have listen to, this ranks last. But, that isn't her fault it was the material I disliked.


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

    When her sister died was the most heartfelt portion of the book. You could almost see it coming however.

    "If you liked the first book, you'll like this one"

    Mockingjay is a strong continuation of the Hunger Games story. It is still filled with action and suspense making for an entertaining read. At this point, the characters are getting more annoying with their obtuseness, but that is by design, and doesn't really detract from the story.

    "How to ruin a perfectly good story"

    Collins is a talented writer, no doubt, but she may be as clueless as her protagonist.

    Every story has a protagonist, of course – the hero. Throughout the first two books, I kept hoping that Katniss would eventually "get it" and stand up for the noble principles that she appears to know instinctively, even if she can't verbalize them (which she hints that Peeta might). At one point, the author teases at what that noble cause is, but then Katniss completely dismisses it and turns to selfish motivations – even stupid ones. From that point on the story fell from such great kinetic height that it felt like the the book developed a bottomless pit.

    If Collins was trying to make a point of how horrible war was, she'd accomplished that well before that moment. Since she completely hijacked the nobility of the protagonist, all that was left of substance was her statement on war (which she'd already made). As the book continued, I was left feeling as if she was trying to say that it would have been better for them to live under the oppression of the Capitol than to aspire to something greater. Really?

    In the end, Katniss' name became quite apropos. She transformed to be as fickle and self-centered as Buttercup – the cat she hated – and any other character she'd fought against throughout the story. Collins made me not care about her protagonist – even dislike her. That's how you ruin a perfectly good story.

    I'm left with two thoughts. "We hold these truths to be self-evident." Katniss knew instinctively what was right. And "Give me liberty or give me death." This is the ideal – the line in the sand that I had been waiting for, which never came. Collins intentionally sabotaged her story, including any redemptive quality that might have been found in a tragic ending. Awful.

    "I wish I'd not read this one"

    I found it hard to reconcile this book with the first two in the trilogy, it was as if the author decided to radically change the direction of the characters without any real reason provided for the change.

    In this book, previously strong characters become weak shadows of themselves. Katniss herself spends most of the book in some sort of mental and emotional paralysis. Instead of the strong leadership she portrayed in the previous books, in this one she seems unable to cope with her reality and retreats into just being a pawn in plots dictated by the other characters. I spent most of the book waiting for her to wake up and take a grip on herself, but alas it never happened.

    A great opportunity for a classic trilogy was wasted.

    "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.....

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The readers voice was too slow and had a 'posh american' accent that distracted me from the story.

    "The voice gets less annoying the more you listen"

    I love the book. I've read it and listened to it at least 10 times combined. The narrator might be annoying to British listeners but me and mother both found that after about an hour you get used to it and actually it makes you find her different and the narrator almost became Katniss in the end. I recommend that even if you dislike the narrator when you try a trial to stick with her.

    In terms of the book, well, it's famous! Look at real reviews!
