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

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)

Slow Going... But Worth It

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, it was time well-spent. I was driving on a 5-6 hour trip and it kept me entertained for the trip down and back.

Would you ever listen to anything by Suzanne Collins again?

Yes, I just downloaded the third book in the series

What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

She was very easy to listen too. She managed the different voices with ease.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Definitely. I did see the movie tied in to book 1 and I would go to see this one in movie format too.

Any additional comments?

A slow start but stay with it. The arena experience is satisfying and now I am enticed to read the final book in the series.

OK... but disapointing

In a word... letdown. The story plods along, rehashing and re-telling old stories until the last few chapters where things get interesting only to have the main characters enter a pointless struggle, then alot of tedious, boring fill in the blank storytelling. A weak ending to a decent trilogy.

Every chapter was like the last......

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I loved the first book the Hunger Games but this last one just dragged on and on. Every chapter seemed to be the same, she gets hurt, she is healing, she is confused... on and on.. I could not wait to get to the end. Was very disapointed with it because I so enjoyed the first book and the second one wasn't bad either... this one stunk!

Would you ever listen to anything by Suzanne Collins again?

Yes I would listen to Suzanne Collins again... it seemed like on this last book she hurried through it and ran out of steam or was bored herself.

What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

She was PERFECT.... she really captured each character! I enjoy listening to her, its like listening to music. Please keep her around.

What character would you cut from Mockingjay?

The entire district 13 crew...... didn't care for the part of the story.

It Was Pretty Good, But..

I came to know and care about the characters and their relationships. I loved the first book, really liked the second book, and only, kinda, sorta liked this third and last story. I gave it 4 stars because there were many shocking twists and turns as the District executed their plan to destroy the evil Capital and stop the Hunger Games. But it wasn't all good against evil because the methods used by the District to prepare and fight were many times dark and ugly, like a war without ethics, and it went on and on, over and over they conquered what the Capital threw at them. That was why it became tedious to me. It was like, "Take this! Take that! Take this! Take that!" All right already, can we move on?
The end finally came, bringing the original Hunger Games theme to fruition. The end included a good message, but it left me unfulfilled because those battling on the District's side were not pure and righteous, they too did things that would burn in their hearts forever. it was tragic and sad. I really wanted to feel happy and content when I finished this last book, but instead it left me restless.

A great series of opportunities wasted

As much as I enjoyed the first two installments of this trilogy, in the end, Mockingjay could have been much, much more than it was. Collins spends the first two books establishing a beautifully orchestrated political commentary, then instead of spending this book bringing the commentary to a head, barely touches upon the newly-established themes involving District 13. The finale seemed thrown together instead of developed, and in the end there are still too many unanswered questions for this to be a worthwhile conclusion to the story.

Petty Good

It was pretty good but not my favorite. I wasn't a big fan of the narrator. She sounded a bit whiny,
