50 Books Challenge 2011 - # 49: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Author: Suzanne Collins
Story: 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.
Start: september 10th 2011
End: september 16th 2011
Comment: The last book in "The Hunger Games" series. The second book topped the fantastic first installment, so I was really excited to read this one. When Katniss thinks it's finally all over, everything gets even worse. She isn't safe yet and neither is her family and all the people who are close to her. The story had a different take, Katniss grew in her personality and became an even stronger young woman. She fought even harder than in the first two books. It didn't suck me in as much but it had some surprising moments. It was intense and again a lot of action. I wasn't pleased with the ending. Not the epilogue, because I loved that, but just who Katniss ended up with. I never liked Peeta and I never will. I do love that you feel connected to the characters, some more than other, and that you can feel their sorrow if they go through another dramatic moment. Suzanne Collins managed to write a great series, but this is the least favorite of the three. Still a great one though!
