Critic Reviews

"At its best the trilogy channels the political passion of 1984, the memorable violence of A Clockwork Orange, the imaginative ambience of The Chronicles of Narnia and the detailed inventiveness of Harry Potter." ( New York Times Book Review)
"Unfolding in Collins' engaging, intelligent prose and assembled into chapters that end with didn't-see-that-coming cliffhangers, this finale is every bit the pressure cooker of its forebears. [ Mockingjay] is nearly as shocking, and certainly every bit as original and thought provoking, as The Hunger Games. Wow." ( Los Angeles Times)
"Fans will be happy to hear that Mockingjay is every bit as complex and imaginative as Hunger Games and Catching Fire." ( Entertainment Weekly)

Conflicting Emotions

Ah... I think after the strong ending in "catching fire" that mockingjay might become more action oriented.

What I didn't bargain on was the book becoming so dark and for so long. I guess Hunger Games and Catching Fire had element of colourful naive adventure in them. Mockingjay is not colourless but dark, confronting and causes a ruckus of emotion in the listener.

I can understand people not liking the book - because it isn't what they had signed up for. They had signed up for light YA games. This is the mature adult reality of life. Suzanne Collins causes the readers to grow up to these issues quite quickly. They need to realise that the book is still beautifully written and narrated. There is still a story and a message.

I think the ending gives closure but not the warm pleasant feeling of a happy ending. Everyone must wish that certain bloody events didn't occur.

Definite worth listening but be warned - don't expect everyone to come unscathed and DO keep tissues handy.

You will NOT be disappointed - fulfilling finale..

I have read many poor reviews for this final book in the Mockingjay series - to the extent I almost did not read it. Thank goodness I decided to put those aside and form my own opinions. I don't leave this series full of disappointment , frustration or angst. I depart feeling saddened but encouraged - knowing a long due resolution and sense of completeness and hope was provided to the much abused characters.

I was worried I would regret investing in the main characters, but the opposite is true. The author provided both a compelling storyline and a fulfilling resolution to the many difficulties faced throughout this series.

As to those who lament the darkness of the story, the destruction of life, or the poor development of characters - I say they must be idealistically naive souls who have yet to face the realities of this life. There was no indescriminate destruction of life, but a sorrowful depiction of what so often occurs during those horrible situations so commonly arising during war. As to character development, how would you imagine a teenager thrown into horror movie scenarios in an attempt to protect her little sister's life, only to lose so much to the very people she thought were on her side in the end would be affected? To have all illusions shattered at such a critical and tumultuous age would be mind-numbing and life altering at best. Most people would never recover to the point they could live normal lives following such torturous abuse. These strong characters manage to give others hope by not only surviving, but in choosing to LIVE. If you were to lose all that mattered most to you, be physically tortured and mentally attacked brutally and repeatedly, would you be strong enough to face your fears and choose to continue? To be part of a new and hopefully better world? I commend the author for her depth of commitment to an honest depiction and her strength imbued to characters enabling them to embrace the hope needed to survive.

A Tad too violent for me

Having listened to the previous 2 books, I still dislike the narrators flat, monotone voice as the main character...they should not have let her sing for sure. Having said that, her characterisations/voices are better than the main characters voice, which is unusual.

I personally found this final book a little tedious, in spite of the action and was in fact relieved when it was over. Too much tummy button gazing with the internal monologues and spoken thoughts for my taste.

I also found that there was uncessary level of detail on the torture and violence, which was almost continuous throughout the book.

Having said that the plot was interesting with some surprises in store, so if you liked the prevous two books, you will not dislike this one...but not as good as the others in my view.

Weakest of the trilogy

Having listened to the first two books I had to finish the series. I had hoped that Catching Fire suffered from 'middle book of trilogy syndrome' and Mockingjay would be an incredible ending... but sadly it was the weakest book of the lot. I found it hard to invest in Katniss and the other main characters (something that wasn't the case in the previous two books) and the plot was far weaker than either of the previous books. I wasn't expecting a happily ever after ending but I was still dissatisfied with the actual ending. It just didn't sit right with me. It is worth listening to if you have read/listened to the other books, but keep your expectations low.

The realistic ending makes this book

A lot of this third installment is the story line you expect, but a couple of things make the work unique. The first of these in that the protagonist has a realistic reaction to the events, suffering from post traumatic stress rather than taking things in her stride. The second is that the book ends with a focus on this confused protagonist, rather than posting the world as a rosy paradise.

All in all, the third installment makes it worth listening to the second and rounds off the first.

Not as good as the first 2 but satisfactory end

Where does Mockingjay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not sure.. But Mockingjay is a slight let down on the first 2 Hunger Games books.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Peeta, he's just a good person through and through. Sad that he had to go through so much suffering. :(

What does Carolyn McCormick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

She expresses the intention of the character's words well. Gives the story more atmosphere :)

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2, Like hollywood is doing!!!!

Any additional comments?

Its a long book and the story seems to become a little tired. I think this is because i this book the author leaves the "in the arena" formula that was so successful in the first two books. But I can see why the depart from the formula was necessary in this third book. I was disappointed by the ending a little. It would have been good to me to have had a happier ending, i would probably feel more satisfied. But its still an excellent book especially if you have read the first two hunger games books.
