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...This thrilling final instalment of this ground-breaking trilogy promises to be one of the most talked-about books of the year.
I had read the first book in the series to see if it was suitable for my kids. I did not expect to love it! I read the entire series within 20 hours over the holidays... I just could not put each book down, and had to grab for the next one to see how it ended.
This last book was a bit heavy on the war aspects of the story, making it irresistible to my son and quite disappointing for my daughter. Still, overall the entire trilogy has plenty of suspense, action and mildly gory violence for my son and just and a charming story of romance for my daughter. An excellent example of how young adult literature should be written: it's intelligent and gripping enough for adults (a.k.a. the parents) as well, and has valuable lessons about politics, ethics and morals for the kids.
The ending has stayed with me for over a week now. I rarely read fiction, but this has really touched something in me. As a parent, I shudder at the idea that anything like this happens - and no I am not talking about the Hunger Games, although I think MasterChef junior is similar (!) but that children are recruited to fight wars - and this is happening all over the world already...just a thought...
This book was great, just as good as the first two in the trilogy. It begins with Katniss picking through the ruins of her home District 12. Almost unwillingly she has accepted the role as the Mockingjay - or symbol- of the rebellion. In summary the success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, whatever the cost.
A fantastic end to The Hunger Games Trilogy. It continues the political intrigue as the rebels, now with the help of District 13, wage war against the dictatorship of the Capital. It was a little slow in parts and a little annoying how some of the characters ended up. However it was a great ending without being cliched and overdone. Well worth reading :-)
