Book Review: Mockingjay (Hunger Games Trilogy, Book 3), By Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games, Book 3
By: Suzanne Collins

With Peeta captured and her home gone – Katniss has no choice but to join the rebels. Is freedom even possible or will humanity be destroyed?

Many books present horrific circumstances and show a good and admirable way to fix or weather them – This is not one of those books.

Mockingjay is the final book in the Hunger Games Trilogy and is just as addictive as the prior books, although the ending leaves many questions unanswered. 

Readers should be aware that this story contains gruesome images, horrific death, killing, torture and drug use. 

Parents should be aware that in this book Katniss is motivated by hate and a desire for revenge. She checks out of life, behaves badly and frequently needs to be sedated. Her shining moments are when she looks at the world and situation around her with common decency, but these instances are few and far between. Our “Good Guys” increasingly resemble our “Bad Guys”, right and wrong, good and bad, and true and false are helplessly jumbled – never to be made clear. Ultimately this book provides many interesting discussion points without much if any enlightenment.

  1. I absolutely loved Mockingjay! I think that Catching Fire would have to be my favorite though. :)
