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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

Not much I can say to add to the crowd of reviews.

Where does Mockingjay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love this story, love the characters, highly, highly recommend. Not a huge fan of the narrator, but she's ok. I only wish it was a 6 book series..I would buy them all.

I was crying like a baby!

Any additional comments?

I was in my shop... crying... I wasn't creating beautiful things for brides and crying! But a happy cry you know the kind! I read the first book saw the movie then thougth I would listen to the others while I worked. Great YA books. There was a few parts that shocked me. I really didn't see it coming and I always think I know what is coming!

End to the series

Where does Mockingjay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book was kind of bittersweet throughout. But I rank it with the books that I will reread again and again.

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

Haymitch

Any additional comments?

The end was sort of abrupt for me. There is a definite ending so don't worry about loose ends, but I just thought there would be a little bit more. Overall, the series was a good one, the odds never seemed to be in favor for the characters but it was suspenseful.

Downward Spiral of Attrocities

Would you try another book from Suzanne Collins and/or Carolyn McCormick?

The Hunger Games story is well advanced by the time you start reading/listening to Mockingjay. It's a brutal story, with characters you've grown to care about being subjected to horror after horror. And that pretty well continues all the way through, ending with a slight glimmer of redemption. I wanted a little more sunshine, a little less carnage.

If you’ve listened to books by Suzanne Collins before, how does this one compare?

This is my least favorite in the series, though as somebody who needs closure, I had to finish the story. It would be very hard to stop after the first or second book.

What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She does a fine job.

Did Mockingjay inspire you to do anything?

Pray the world doesn't fall subject to despotic power mongers.

Perfect wrap-up for the trilogy.

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

I only purchased the audio version of all three books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Katniss, of course. She was human in a very real and compassionate way. She revealed all of the insecurities most of us feel as well as the bravery born of love.

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to list!

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

You bet!

Any additional comments?

The Hunger Games Trilogy is not a genre I would normally be interested in, but I was thoroughly enthralled right from the beginning of book one until the end of book three.

3 for 3

Would you listen to Mockingjay again? Why?

A must "read" if you liked and read the first two. Can't say too much, don't wan't to give anything away.

Do not buy this until you've read the first two in the Hunger Games trilogy.

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

I listened to the entire Trilogy. She's good in all three.

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

No. I READ books in one sitting, but audible.com is strictly for the commute.

Love this series!!

i admit, at first it is a bit disturbing to get used to the concept of "hunger games" and what that entails but it's all very well done and exciting--you never know for sure what's going to happen. the narrator does a great job and you really get lost into this whole "hunger games" experience. i highly recommend this series. it's one of the best i've happened on in a while.

Love it wish it was more!!!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I am not a big reader so when I found out about audible.com I thought let me give it a shot. I heard about this author through the blogs and internet and decided to give her a try and honestly I am glad I did. I have listened to all three books and just to give you and Idea it only took me 3 days to finish all 3books that's how good it was I couldn't put it down. I found myself listening all night. The details, descriptions and vivid pictures from the author are so awesome. I recommend anyone to listen to this one you will LOVE it!!!

What did you like best about this story?

Catniss the main character I loved her story and her growth throughout the novel.

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

No I have not but I will definitively give them a shot

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Rebellion and Love how do you live with them both!

Very creative and vivid imagery.

What made the experience of listening to Mockingjay the most enjoyable?

Disappearing into an audio book revitalizes me and Mockingjay gave interest to "What's next".

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved Peta. He is a constant hero in the book. Even when he did something you didn't understand, you knew why and loved him more.

What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

Depending on how she used her voice told you about which character she was.

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

If I could have, I would have.
