This book was okay...it was definitely not the best book of the trilogy though. It's a very slow book, and sometimes it was hard to get through the book. It's the saddest though ;( I won't give any spoilers though ;)

So so

I think the first two books are much better. Too much politics!


Good book
Very descriptive
But not the best in the series


I was expecting a stronger ending to this trilogy since the first two books were so good; this one fell flat. It lacked the Katniss/Peeta dynamic, and Katniss just seems like a weak character in comparison to the other books. It's still worth a read, but don't expect it to be as good as the others!


As the third in the Hunger Games Series, I expected a grand finale, this book was not it. It caused you to hate the characters, killing or instilling some form of Dementia among entire families at some points. It's not satisfying, or even saddening, and you begin to grow bored after the first few deaths. Katniss is a horrid mess, and it's shameful to be put in her perspective. Maybe it just unsatisfying, but I thought it was just plotted poorly.

Good Book

Good book, but when it ended, I was like, whoa, that's a sudden ending.

Pretty good

This book is pretty good, but the first 2 books were better.
I didn't like how the ending went by so fast though.

Trilogy went downhill

Definitely not as good as the first ones. Was very slow and felt rushed at the end. I didn't like the ending


Not as good as the other 2 books

Loved it

I couldn't put this down, and read it in approximately 12 hours, including picking my kids up from school and making dinner.

I really liked the *process* that the characters go through in this book. Katniss is used by nearly everyone in her life other than her family, Peeta, and possibly Gale. Quite frankly, this is what would happen when politically motivated adults had a "culturally hot" teenager available to them. But figuring out their agendas, making her own decisions to go along or thwart the plans, or to create her own agenda... that's what drives Katniss and what drives the story.

Parts of the story (especially Katniss taking over the military team) felt less realistic to me than much of the rest of the story (or the entire first book), which is most of why this did not get five stars for me.

Great trilogy, but I must add, wildly not for kids. Several fourth graders in my son's class have read at least the first book, and I am quite appalled.


This was a good read. Not as much action as the first two books, but it continued to delve into the personalities of the people in the book.


It was good but not as good as the others in the trilogy


This book was good, but not as good has the first one. I think the lack of action in the beginning could be changed. This is probably because there was no arena in this book. I liked the ending a lot though, that part definitely had action! Even though this book may not have been as good as the first two, it is still worth reading.=)

Not bad

In Mockingjay the real war is played out, and while there is no official Games the same story line of the games plays out. The romance aspects are tied up by the end of the book. This was my least favorite of the triology. To me it seemed like the most violent and militaristic of the series, and that is saying something. I wish Katniss had grown a little more during through the stories.

Okay... not good ending

The districts are now in a full blown war. Kind of amazing that it just started from some berries. The book was filled with action but was gruesome. The ending, however, seemed to wrap up rather quickly.

The ending

Mockingjay was the last book in the trilogy, but I thought the other two books in this series were better. The ending was a little boring, but overall, the whole trilogy was a nice read.

Last book in the trilogy!

I thought the ending could've been a little better than this, but I still thought this series was amazing. I enjoyed reading the books and I think Suzanne Collins is an amazing author.


This was a good book. I have to say, the first book was WAY better than the second and third books. The ending for this book wasn't that great, but was still a great series I would recommend to all people who don't mind a little blood and gore.


Who would've known they would hijack peeta???

A little disappointing

Once again, thought provoking and exciting page turner. My only complaint is that because of the first person narrative from Katniss' point of view, this and the second book miss out on a lot of interesting things happening in the revolution elsewhere - very narrow world, with too much post-event "tell" instead of showing us the revolution and conflict - not to mention that the Gale/Katniss side of things just completely petered out with little resolution, and the "happy ending" should have been expanded on more.
