Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
(Scholastic, 2010, 390 pages)
“Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this [is the] thrilling final installment…” – Amazon.com
After I saw the “Catching Fire” movie over Thanksgiving break I had to re-read Mockingjay because I needed a refresher on how the series ended. As with all the Hunger Games titles this was a book I got through quickly. You can’t help but fly through it. I’ll be curious to see the film version of this final book.
