Mockingjay (spoiler free)

by Suzanne Collins
Book 3 of The Hunger Game Trilogy
audiobook: 11.75 hours
narrated by Carolyn McCormick

*** About the Book ***

Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games)Since this is a spoiler-free review I'll keep this short: Katniss continues her fight against the Capital. 'Nuff said.

(I also did a spoiler-filled review - click here to check it out.)

*** Why I Listened To It ***

I was convinced by several friends to give The Hunger Games a try even though I wasn't interested in the book at all.  Book 1 was just "meh" in my opinion, but I agreed to continue with the series.  Book 2 was much better and really got me interested.  And when it ended on an enormous cliffhanger I HAD to get to Book 3 right away.

*** My Thoughts ***

Again, since this is a spoiler free review, I'll keep this short: I LOVED this book.  I think it made complete sense based on the previous books in the series.  At the same time it had enough twists to make it interesting and definitely NOT predictable.

For those of you who have read this, stay tuned for another post later today which WILL include spoilers. I figure that's the best way to open up discussion and see whether we agree on this book or not.

As a side note, Carolyn McCormick did a great job narrating this series - I'll definitely look for her name on other audiobooks.

*** Your Thoughts ***

If you are into the Hunger Games books but haven't read this one yet, why not?  If you have read it, look for my 2nd post later today and share your thoughts on it there!

I really enjoyed the book, too, and thought it was a suitable conclusion to the trilogy.

My favorite of the trilogy was Catching Fire, but I definitely felt like Mockingjay tied up all the lose ends and solved the things it needed to solve!

I think I'm going to be the last person in the world to read this trilogy.

Anna - Glad to see someone else who agrees with me! It seems like so many people didn't like the last book.

Helen's Book Blog - That's exactly how I feel!

bermudaonion - I'd never have picked up this series if not for several IRL friends pushing it on me. LOL
