Book Summary Mockingjay

Updated on February 9, 2016

The trilogy The Hunger Games has won many awards. The book Mockingjay is the third book. The trilogy is a Number One New York Times Bestseller. The Hunger Games began with a girl named Katniss who volunteered to take her sister's place in the dangerous games when her sister was unfortunate enough to be chosen at random. There followed the second book Catching Fire where Katniss has to continue to stay alive.

The author of The Hunger Games trilogy is Suzanne Collins. Mockingjay is the third book in The Hunger Games series. The first two books, The Hunger Games and Catching Fire were both New York Times Bestsellers. She also authored the Underland Chronicles. These are all very exciting and excellent books.

In this third book Katniss was nearly killed the games arena this time. She was rescued at the last minute. The uprisings in the districts became a full blown revolution. Katniss became a symbol of the people's revolutionary spirit, even though she didn't necessarily want to be that. The much rumored about District 13 is real and is the headquarters for the resistance to the Capitol.

Readers of the previous books already know all the characters. This makes the book easy to read as the readers are wondering what will happen to those they have come to know and care about in the past two books. There is a great deal of violence in this book since this represents the final showdown.

This book is a really satisfying end to the trilogy. The revolution is resolved and there is fast paced action throughout as expected. The other two books had established a love story between Katniss and Peeta. The love story continues as well. Katniss and Peeta's love seems hopeless in the scope of all the violence. How in the world could love thrive in such an environment? Many times Katniss and Peeta are pitted against each other. Just reading it may cause the reader to wonder how love could win out when the two lovers are directly in opposition to each other out of necessity. Do they get together in the end? Read it and find out.

The book is full of action and is as fast paced as the other two in the trilogy. It does have a surprising plot twist toward the end. The entire trilogy is riveting. Mockingjay like the previous two books is a special contribution to the Young Adult genre.
