Summary:

“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:

I’m still in love, and think I’ll always be in love, with this series. This final book is just as great as the first two.

 It’s all-out warfare in this final installment. Katniss is the face of the rebellion, whether she likes it or not. The whole political conspiracy part of the book really got to me, as it does in most books. The idea of not being able to do whatever you want, to have someone else controlling your every move . . . I wouldn’t like that one bit. Katniss is dealt some serious blows in Mockingjay; will she rise above to obstacles set before her?

All questions are answered in this book: Who will win, the Capital of the rebels? How many lives will be lost in the process? And, of course, the most important question: Peeta or Gale? :D I know for many readers that’s all they care about.

Yet Mockingjay is more than just a love triangle. It’s about the fight for justice. It’s about where to draw the line during that fight. And it’s about love, hope, family, and friendship.

Mockingjay gets 5/5 stars from me. Go read it! :D
