Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
In less then a week, I have finished all three books in The Hunger Games Trilogy. Mockingjay was an incredible end to an incredible trilogy.
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year. -Amazon.com
Read my review of The Hunger Games and Catching Fire.
Now this book is what I expected of Catching Fire: aftermath, rebellion and fallout from The Hunger Games. That's not to say it wasn't fantastic, just a little more predictable the the first two books. Even so, it still managed to be surprising, eventful and filled with suspense. The ending was a mixture of happy endings and horrifying loss. In a word - perfect.
On a scale from Totally Awesome to Horrifically Awful, I'd give it a Just Awesome. Although a perfect wrap-up after the first two books, I loved it less then I love them.
