Mockingjay follows straight on from Catching Fire, Katniss survived her second Hunger Games by being rescued by the rebels, Peeta was kidnapped by the Capitol and District 12 has been destroyed. Katniss is taken to District 13 and then given a decision to make. She can leave all the Districts to the wrath of the Capitol and never see Peeta again or she can become the rebels Mockingjay and lead the revolution. Either way the outcome will be her fault. But what will Katniss decide to do?
"Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding. It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plains - except Katniss. The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay - no matter what the personal cost."
I found Mockingjay slightly disappointing, this could just be because it's the final book (which is very upsetting) but the ending made me angry. I'm not going to tell you why because that would be a huge spoiler but lets just say it wasn't my desired ending. This book starts quite slowly but by the second part it starts to speed u, by the end I think it goes a little too fast so the ending is a little hurried. Mockingjay truly broke my heart near the end though I can't tell you why but I was very close to tears.Another thing is there was nowhere near enough Peeta, he needed to be in it way more! I would give this book 4/5 stars. I've heard very mixed reviews about this book so I'm interested to know, what did you think? Were you disappointed?
