This is my review of the book “The Hunger Games – Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins”, which I have just finished. This is the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy. The story line continues one month on from the end of the previous book “Catching Fire”. Normally I don't read one book after another with the same author, but the suspense left at the end of the last one made me want to just start reading this new book.
It continues the story line of Katniss Everdeen, and her friend Peeta Mellark. (Though is he still her friend??). Katiness has managed to escape from the last “Game” along with some of her fellow victors, and is now a leading light in the uprising against the power of President Snow in the Capitol.
Sadly to get to this point they have suffered badly both mentally and physically, and need to recover before they can prove their usefulness.
Katniss as the Mockingjay has come to symbolise the rebellion. As such she needs to be filmed fighting for the revolution, as an inspiration to the fighters, but obviously this has significant risks.
Sadly Peeta was not rescued when the other competitors escaped, so they need to mount a rescue mission to free him from President Snow's grip.
The story then progresses through a series of battles to the Capitol – Can Katniss get the president or will the peacekeepers, along with various automated defensive horrors kill her off first.
This book is a fantastic end to the story line portrayed in the trilogy, and keeps up the suspense right to the end of the book. It is as much a page turner as the previous one.
A really good, enjoyable, exciting, story – all be it in three parts. his was book 26 week 19 fiction 23 (audio book 5) non fiction 3. Half way through my 52 books that make up this list.
