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

Bad

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.

Mockingjay

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.

Mockingjay

This is a wonderful book. It has action but also slow at points. The ending was sadistic and was very emotional. Great book. I recommend this book.

Okay

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

Good

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.

Good

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.

Unpredicted

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.

Good

It was not the best book in the series. I felt the other books had more exciting and intense moments but this was still good

A Good Finish

This was a good finish to the series but I will say I missed all the arena action. I think this could have been made more interesting and sadly it wasn't as good as the first two. I was a little dissapointed but this book is still one of my favorites just the same.

Not Good

I pretty much wish I didn't read this book. I think the first Hunger Games could have stood on it's own. I can't quite put my finger on why I didn't like this one. I think it had to do with the writing, story telling and lack of character development. I also think that parts that could have just been summarized and skipped past were drug out way too long, and parts that had the most meaning and could have went into more detail were just skimmed over. This just wasn't a good book. At all.

Mockingjay

I've heard a lot of people say that the ending was disappointing, but I think it couldn't have ended better. I won't say anymore about the ending because I don't want to give anything away, but it's a good one, it wraps up all loose ends, and it leaves you thinking. The book, overall, was entertaining (though I really don't like that everything is told in the present tense). The story seemed to fit well with the first two books in the series. And I have to say, one of my favorite characters in this book was the cat. Don't let the naysayers keep you from this book. Give it a try and form your own opinion.

Okay Book

This book is pretty slow in the beginning. I would have to say out of the 3 books in the trilogy this one is my least favorite (although it is still worth reading if you have read the first 2). Katniss was a bit whiny in the first half of the book. Some things happened that I was not very happy about. I like how at the very end the author goes ahead in the future so you can see what Katniss's life had become.

nice wrap up

This 3rd book of the trilogy was a nice wrap-up. It was closure for the characters
