Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survivied the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena live, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss.


Mockingjay is an intense ending to an amazing trilogy. If you haven’t read the books yet I’d start now! So much drama, bloodshed and anticipation. So many unpredictable events occurred and the Epilogue took my breath away. Although I wanted to cry many a times throughout, but I had to keep my composure throughout since I’m at work and crying over an audiobook would be deemed a tad pathetic. Anyhow, yes, Katniss is fighting for her life on more than one occasion. Peta’s gone mad after being abducted by the Capitol during the games. There’s just so much happening. Prim isn’t a child any more and has taken a great responsibility for District 13.

The mutations that smell of the perfumed roses that President Snow wore every day that pursued Katniss and her team as they scurried through the underground passages of the Capitol. As they hid in an hideaway hole of a shopkeeper’s store they plan a glorious infiltration  to gain access to President Snow’s mansion and attack, but things go wrong.

President Snow’s head has been figuratively put up for highest bidder for target practice however in a twist of events President Coin from District 13 takes a hit. It’s so much! You don’t want me to undermine the entire book by giving you a review with spoilers. 

Gale gets separated from Katniss in the end, even though they knew throughout that they were meant to be, but there was something that official kept them apart. Peta gets better – kind of.

I can’t really confirm or deny a happily ever after. For some perhaps, for others not so much. I’ll let you decide which best describes the ending of this trilogy.

  1. A lot of people don’t like how things end, I thought it was great. Even if there were sad parts. I can’t wait for the movies to come out for this book though! Glad you enjoyed t!
