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)
Love the horror genre but read all kinds of stuff! I'm 40 something, a wife, mom and Project Manager for a large Construction Company.
The narrator had a good sense of the character and her inflections were added in all the right places to help give you the feel of the emotions behind the scene.
When Katniss killed President Coin instead of Snow. I was beginning to get sick of how this book portrayed her as weak and unsure (even though she went through so much), and at that moment, she was "back" to her old self, coming to her own conclusions and making her own decisions about what was right and what was wrong. Her survival instinct kicked in-again.
It's hard to say a favorite scene. The book just moves you along with it from place to place, so it isnt like there are individual scenes.
I was surprised and sad when Prim died. I guess it was necessary to uncovered the agenda that Coin had and it underlined the fact that Katniss's life would always be filled with pain and loss.
Can't wait for the other movies to come out!
Why does Book 3 pick up where it does with so many gaps that a reader has to hope some of it gets explained later in the book. I am perplexed by the missing pieces of the story line.
Suzanne is fine.
How about a follow up to Book 2 that is cogent.
The third book in the hunger games trilogy was a seriously lacking for me. The story became convoluted and I found myself struggling through to the end just so I could finish it.
To be fair to the story though, the narration began to grate on me so bad that I found myself hating most of the characters. Katniss sounds like a simpering, selfish, idiotic girl who spends most of her time whining like a 3 year old but again, I think this is because of the narration and not because of the story.
Maddie and I, are a dad-daughter combo who love audible books. She has recently started to write reviews also. I hope you can differentiate.
This is a very fitting end to one of the most depressing and violent trilogies I have ever read. Don't get me wrong, this is a well written tale, all the more so for how realistic Ms. Colling makes her heroine and her exploits. This is not a tale of unrealistic triumphs, and Disney endings...this tale moves and ends in a mostly realistic manner. Our heroine is revealed as not a indomitable force, but rather as a 17 year old girl in over her head in a cruel cold world. This novel will make you want to weep at times and rage in others...but It will never make you cheer or laugh, but in the end leave you satisifed.
Satisfying Ending, Frustrating
Gale because he brings a change to the story.
When Peta and Katniss are reunited.
Thrillers zombies and action make my day! Fast moving stories and characters worth reading. New twists to a great genre will always get me
What a great story! Captures your attention right at the beginning and makes you want more. This one is suspenseful, energetic and imaginative. You're right there with all of the characters.
This book's target audiance may be teens but this is a greeat read for any age that enjoys adventure, romance, survival and sci-fi .
If you read the first book, then saw the first movie & belief in fairy tales then don't read this book or the second book. Like so, many trilogies this series ends in a big flop. You can guess from the second book how this book will end. No 'SPOILERS' here. The story is a good one just predictable which makes it worth reading if you want to confirm your own thoughts on how the series will end. To me this is just like the 'His Dark Material' series by Philip Pullman.
Yes, I love all the hunger the series.
Katniss last decision between Gale and Peeta, and the reason why she chose ..., totally touch my heart.
Retired 35 year policeman from So CA, relocated with my wife to South Carolina with "Toby" our cat. I listen to two books a week
If the author is not the reader, most audio books are better then print versions
She brought the book to life.
Book was a perfect conclusion to the trilogy.
Wish there were 3 more
Had to read the second and third books to find out what happened in the overall trajectory of the series, but ultimately I found the second and third books disappointing, a little boring at times, only held together by the occasional plot twist, and finally I was glad to be finished.
