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)

    "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.

    "Good narration, Good setting, Terrible characters"
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The socially challenged


    What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    She is an excellent narrator. Good emotion and great diction.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mockingjay?

    All the ones involving the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    Catness Everdeen is one of the weakest, self centered, idiot heroines that I have ever read. How this book series ever got the ratings that it did just proves how low people's standards are getting. It was a grave disappointment from beginning to end.

    "TWO THUMBS UP"
    Would you listen to Mockingjay again? Why?

    Listening again ... YES!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved everyone in the series. All the pieces fit into a great series.


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

    The Hunger Games series was a look into the human mind from several points. You not only have to think about the main people, but what drives everyone to attempt the bend everyone else to what they think is the "best" for all...


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I smiled and laughed several times. The series was written in a way to keep the "reader" having to second guess if what they were focused on was the true emotion or what an outside force wanted you to feel.


    Any additional comments?

    This series was an excellent "read" and I am sure the movie can not do it justice.

    "New boss same as the old!"
    Where does Mockingjay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's the weakest in the series but that's just because it ties up the first two books in a neat little package.


    What other book might you compare Mockingjay to and why?

    any rebellion story.


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

    she brings the charters to life.


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

    it was and i did try.


    Any additional comments?

    My phone didn't download the last 39 minutes of the story and I felt like a crack addict looking for wifi to get it.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Others were better


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    Very good.


    Do you think Mockingjay needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No.

    "Not a stirring finish"
    What disappointed you about Mockingjay?

    I loved the first book in this series; I was engaged in the 2nd book; but the 3rd book was a struggle to get through. It was as if Collins felt she had to extend this to three books but ran out of captivating material. Stephen King would have wrapped this story into a single book and saved us all a little money. I won't give too much away for those of you who haven't started the 3rd book, but I was really disappointed in how Collins handled the resolution of Catniss' decision over Peta and Gayle. As a fundamental theme in all three books, I was shocked that it was resolved in an "off hand" way near the end of the book. I wish I would have saved my 3rd credit.


    What was most disappointing about Suzanne Collins’s story?

    Resolution between Gale and Peta


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

    No

    "Hardcore, Strong Ending!"

    Everyone is right: the final installment is dark and gritty, but I thought it pulled together well. From the first book, this trilogy never felt like material for young-young adults. I think it'd meet a TV-14 rating and there sure isn't anything in this book that isn't already available to young adults via TV or video games. "The Hunger Games" left me yearning for more action: here are these gruesome games and we get very little graphic detail. "Catching Fire" showed that the characters were growing some backbone and took the series to a new level. "Mockingjay" barred none, and I respect it for that. If it had an abruptly "happy" ending -- good simply triumphs evil with no internal conflicts, everybody's all smiles and the people of Panem cheer as Katniss gets to marry both Gale and Peeta and float off into the sunset -- then I (and I'm sure many others) would've been highly upset. This book provides a realistic outcome, like it or not, and had it succumbed to the facade of a Utopian world to come, I think the entire message would have been lost. And I'm not sure what all of the complaints are about; the ending isn't far from perfect, in fact, it's perhaps the most plausible.

    My one complaint is that the book did crawl for quite a while and then throw everything into the last two to three hours. It still contained the most action of the series, but I'd say the first book was the most well-written and the second was the best at keeping my interest and keeping me guessing.

    If looking for another good series to jump into, I'd recommend Neal Shusterman's "Everlost" trilogy, and especially his book, "Unwind".

    "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.....

    "More of a whimper than a bang"
    What made the experience of listening to Mockingjay: Hunger Games Trilogy, Book 3 the most enjoyable?

    An interesting change of pace where the protagonists take on a more revolutionary role - think "Tomorrow when the war began" and a little bit "Red Dawn"


    Would you be willing to try another book from Suzanne Collins? Why or why not?

    I'd certainly give her stuff a go again - it is sufficiently good for parents (like me) to read their daughters books!


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book was the weakest of the trilogy. Whilst still well written it was stilted in places and felt a little like a clock running down rather than an exiting conclusion. It brought to mind Frodo's whinge trek through Mordor on occasions.

    "An exciting end to the story"

    In this final book in the trilogy we find Katnis in district 13 with a mentally unstable wristband on due to her experiences in the games and the fact that Peter was taken by the Capitol when she destroyed the arena in the 75th games.

    President Coin of district 13 and Plutarch want Katnis to be the Mockingjay. However Katnis is not sure she wants to until she visits district 12 and sees the remains of her old district for herself including skulls laying on the ground. On her return to 13 she sees a broadcast from the Capitol showing Peter asking for a ceasefire, which angers everybody but Katnis and Prim. Katnis is now worried that if the rebels win the civil war Peter will be killed as a traitor. Prim tells Katnis that she can demand almost anything from Coin in agreement to be the Mockingjay. So Katnis makes Coin swear that Peter and the other victors will be granted immunity in front of the whole of district 13.

    Katnis tours districts, Peter warns 13 of an impending attack, Coin rescues Peter who then tries to Kill Katnis because he believes she is a mutt. Katnis manages to get herself to the Capitol and joins Boggs, Gale, Finnick and others to battle their way to Snow's home.

    At the gates of victory Katnis sees Prim working as a rebel medic, bombs go off, Prim is dead.

    Katnis finds herself facing Snow who claims that Coin was responsible for dropping the bombs not him and assures Katnis that they promised never to lie to each other.

    Katnis is given the task of killing Snow with an arrow but instead shoots Coin.
