“[Suzanne] Collins writes with raw power...The Hunger Games and Catching Fire expose children to exactly the kind of violence we usually shield them from…[which] just goes to show how much adults forget about what it’s like to be a child.”—Time Magazine.
Those awaiting the conclusion of the stunning film-optioned Hunger Games trilogy—take a deep breath. In Mockingjay, the danger never abates, hitting the adrenaline-pumping highs you’ve come to expect from acclaimed author Suzanne Collins.
Katniss Everdeen has twice survived the Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV...but she still isn’t safe. Her heroism and her skill have transformed her into a symbol of defiance for an oppressed population. With uprisings wracking the nation, the Capitol thinks Katniss should pay for the unrest. Worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one she knows is safe either. The mysterious District 13 may provide sanctuary...or even more danger. Beset with doubt, Katniss forges ahead, but will her strength hold up or fold before the might of the Capitol?
Powerful and haunting, this resounding final installment of the groundbreaking trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

I blew through this trilogy-each book in less than a day! It was a pleasure to have that "I can't put this down" feeling!
Loved all three, expected a little more out of the third ending.
If this had been the first book, I doubt there would be three of them. The first book was pretty good (not great - not on par with HG Wells or Verne by any stretch of the imagination) but they went down hill from there. The author seemed to have more and more trouble developing a plot and cahracter as she went on.

It looked like the author got stuck on the ending and had to reach hard.
I loved the first book. The second book started out boring, then became predictable. Sorry to say but this last story line was so unsatisfying. So much death and gore for little reason. I believe Ms. Collins forgot to write the story of the independent-minded, "heroine" persona of Catniss Everdeen. This story made her look like a tool.
