this _has_ to be some of the worst best-selling writing ever, right? it's like bad-beginner's-writing-workshop bad. it seemed like every few pages there was something like, "the ruthless pain in my arm continued to throb, but i could barely feel it compared to the hard lump in my throat. i fought against my salty tears, but they forced their way out of my eyes and drenched my face until i was rendered unconscious by an emergency dose of morphling the others were forced to administer to me."
ew, kill me.
While still the weakest of the 3 books, it's a lot stronger than I remember it being. Perhaps I just read it too fast the first time. All in all, a good ending to the Hunger Games trilogy.
A little disappointed by the ending, but overall very impressed by the trilogy. Definitely exceeded my expectations. Now, onto the movies...lol.
I put off reading this book for six years.
I still wasn’t ready for that ending. I don’t know how I managed to go into this blindly (no movies, no spoilers) but I’m so glad I did. Now to cry forever.
Collins is absolutely ruthless in her depictions of war in all its cruelty, violence, and loss, leaving readers, in turn, repulsed, shocked, grieving and, finally, hopeful for the characters they've grown to empathize with and love. Mockingjay is a fitting end to the series that began with The Hunger Games (2008) and Catching Fire (2009) and will have the same lasting resonance as William Golding's Lord of the Flies and Stephen King's The Stand. However, the book is not a stand-alone; readers do need to be familiar with the first two titles in order to appreciate the events and characters in this one.
The series ends on an ostensibly happy note, but the heartbreaking effects of war and loss aren't sugar-coated. This is one YA novel that will leave you thinking about the ramifications of war on society, not just the coming-of-age of a young woman.
All in all, Mockingjay confirms what we've suspected already — The Hunger Games isn't just a powerful saga about a unique, memorable hero struggling to do the right thing in the public gaze. It's also an important work of science fiction that everyone should read, because if you don't, you'll be left out of all the best conversations.
The novel's biggest surprises are found elsewhere. Hope emerges from despair. Even in a dystopian future, there's a better future.
Fans will be happy to hear that Mockingjay is every bit as complex and imaginative as Hunger Games and Catching Fire.

Sista rafflande delen i Hungerspels-trilogin De två första delarna i trilogin om Hungerspelen har gått som en raket på den litterära himeln, bland annat som etta på New York Times bestseller-lista. Rebellerna har gjort uppror. Katniss är räddad. Distrikt 12 ligger i ruiner. Peeta är kvar i huvudstadens våld. Finns verkligen distrikt 13? Kommer Katniss och Peeta att återförenas eller tar huvudstaden Peeta från henne. Var är hennes mamma och lillasyster? Och vilka andra från distrikt 12 har undkommit? I de två första delarna av Hungerspelen vävde Suzanne Collins en otroligt tät intrig, nu kommer upplösningen. Hungerspelen har blivit en internationell försäljningssuccé världen över. [Elib]

REVIEW: The final book in my Hunger Games reread! This book was how I remembered it – a really exciting book and a little bit of a rough read. But all in all, a good end to the series (especially since I’ve always been Team Peeta).
Mockingjay picks up where Catching Fire ends, with Katniss recovering from her injuries from the arena. I can’t really give much more of the plot because of spoilers, but this book is much more militaristic and war-like than the others. That’s good in some ways, although I also miss the time in the arena from the other two.
I really enjoyed this book, although I was pretty upset by some of the deaths that occurred in it that I thought were totally unnecessary. Other than that, I really enjoyed this book and the series all together.
Definitely recommend, if there are still people out there who haven’t read it! ( )
