Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12.

My Review:

I’m going to go ahead and say something controversial here: I did not enjoy Mockingjay. Now before you go all torch and pitchforks on me, may I point out that you’re not supposed to? Mockingjay, and the whole series really, is meant to make you uncomfortable. It is meant to create cognitive dissonance. I can see this book being taught in 50 years alongside the famous dystopias like The Giver, Anthem and The Handmaid’s Tale

There has been a lot said about this book, so I’m not going to say much more. Besides, after finishing, it feels like there’s only one thing to say:

A Moment of Silence for those who gave their lives in this series:
Though you were fictional, you still left your mark.

    I wasn't particularly fond of Mockingjay, either, though for slightly different reasons. Looks like we may read some of the same genres.

    I actually thought this series was really good but didn't particularly enjoy the last one. I can't really put my finger on why but I just found the ending disappointing.
