Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins

This is my review of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.

Description:  My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead.

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans -- except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay -- no matter what the personal cost.

Review: This is the third and final book of the Hunger Games Trilogy and what a ride its been for both us and the characters. This is a fantastic ending of the trilogy with its fast paced action and a never ending roller coaster of emotions.

Mockingjay picks up just where Catching Fire left off. District 12 has been destroyed and Katniss has gone back to see what is left in the remains of her old home but it isn't long until she's whisked back to District 13, the place which everyone thought had been destroyed long ago but instead there is an underground society of all the survivors. It is here where Katniss has to take on her role of being the Mockingjay and lead the rebellion to victory, but can she do it? Will she put aside all her feelings and do what everyone else believes is right? Well you're going to have to read it to find out.

In this book you get to see Katniss struggle with her emotions more than in the previous books, especially after previous accidents has made her unstable. Katniss remains strong throughout this book and does what she believes is right, not caring if other people tell her she's wrong. I'm going to miss Katniss's strong will and fierce attitude to fight for what she thinks is right. Peeta is this book goes through a lot both physically and emotionally. We get to see the darker side of Peeta and there's only one person who can bring him back. We also get to see more of Gale and see more of his personality.

Finally Katniss needs to choose one of them and i think she chooses the right person. Throughout the series, i liked Gale first then Peeta and so on it went until this book where i saw that she could go on online but she doesn't of course. The ending was brilliant and satisfying for all readers.

I really don't want to say goodbye to these characters (Can you tell?) but I'm afraid all things have to come to an end but this ones a good one. I really hope we will see more of these characters in the future. I still stand by what i said that this is the best trilogy i have read and probably will ever read (it's that good). So go out and get it then begin reading it and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. This is definitely a series you don't want to miss.
