Description

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived 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....

©2010 Suzanne Collins (P)2010 Scholastic Audio

Ce que les critiques disent

"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)

Book Better Than Film

I really enjoyed listening to the book much more watching the film. And that goes for the whole series. Very imaginative and keep me listening. I definitely would listen to a sequal.

An End to the Trilogy

I listened to all three for the sake of having the whole series finished. I'm unhappy with the ending, but I'm still pleased with the narrator. Nothing buoys up a bad book like someone good reading it. #Audible1

As memorable a trilogy as I've ever finished.

outstanding performance...awesome story line as enjoyable as it gets. Grippimg scenes not for the faint of heart. This is no fantasy but a political military statement drenched in humanness.

Passionnant et haletant

Qu'avez-vous aimé le plus dans cette histoire ?

L'histoire, que j'ai découverte dans la série d'audiobooks, est haletante, l'héroïne est attachante, tellement semblable aux adolescentes d'aujourd'hui.

Auriez-vous pu écouter ce livre audio en une seule fois ?

Si seulement j'avais assez de temps pour écouter les 11 heures d'audiobook d'affilée, je l'aurais fait ! Un vrai plaisir, une lectrice formidable !

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 very satisfying ending

After reading some of the other reviews I was not sure how much I would like this last book. However I knew I had to read it so I would know how the story ended. I am so glad I put the opinion of others aside and read with an open mind to decide for myself if it was a worthy read.
I don't think the book could have ended any other way. This is not a story about sunshine and roses (no pun intended). It is about children forced to pay for the sins of their ancestors. The whole subject of the series is dark and disturbing and if you go into it knowing it is not going to be a feel good story your appreciation of the ending is greatly enhanced.
Katniss is not a super hero she is a teenager who has been physically, emotionally, and mentally abused. She has been put upon a pedestal against her will and expected to know all the answers, when in fact she is just a child trying to make her way in a harsh cruel world.
I like the fact that she doesn't have all the answers, that she breaks down and not always does what is expected. This makes her a much more believable character, much more human. If you pay attention to the personalities of the characters in the story they are all flawed, so it would not fit if she always knew and did the right thing.
This is a story about real people with all their faults, not super heroes, which is what makes the story a much better read.
The story line is dark and tragic and if you are not able to read about bad things happening to children this is not the series you want to read. It is not a feel good story, but it is very thought provoking. It will make you have second thoughts about the state of our world as we know it today.

Not what I expected, but . . .

My first reaction to the conclusion was that the book lacked a certain sense of triumph. I wanted good things to happen to characters who I'd come to love. However, I have listened to the book twice, read it once and re-read the last few chapters a number of times. I think Collins point was to make the book as war-like as possible. There is loss. There are many, many things that the survivors will never recover from, yet they live. I thought Collins conveyed the sacrifice of change very well. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it.

A Warning for Our Time

Katniss Everdean is a hero. I love this character. She is a survivor, but she survived with class. She kept her humanity intact in a crazy world. I am wondering how I would do under the same circumstances.

I read Elie Weisel's must-read autobiography, "Night", just after I finished "Mockingjay". Weisel was a jewish teenager when he was taken by the Germans to Auschwitz. He doesn't know why he survived to tell the tale, but he did. The comparison of these two stories hit me hard, and I didn't know which was worse, the true story or the fiction. I think, as bad as Katniss had it, Elie Weisel had it worse. How can we treat other human beings so badly? It is way, way out of my ken, and yet, our society is edging closer and closer to that sort of thing every minute of every day.

The Hunger Games trilogy is a warning to us to hold on to what we have, and most especially, hold on to our humanity.

As always, Carolyn McCormick is an outstanding narrator.

Just a Pawn

This trilogy has to be one of my favorite book series, and this book is a fantastic end to a fantastic trilogy, with a twisted ending. As with all the books it is a quick read, and I think the target audience really is for both adults and teens, but not any younger.

The characters all have major faults and change throughout the book in what I would call a realistic way. One major point to remember is that Katniss is NOT the heroine of the story, but rather a pawn of politics, if you are expecting her to be the great hero in the story you will be sadly disappointed. This book has a different feel than the two other books which are based around the actual Hunger Games, this one's setting is the battlefield between the Districts and the Capitol. This book is very much a tragedy and does not have the type of happy ending ending I was hoping for, although it does tie up the loose ends and I think tried to make the best of the situation and had a very natural and realistic end.

I feel love and hate for this book.

What did you love best about Mockingjay?

It was awesome, this book has everything; love, hate, action, war, you name it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I was always rooting for Gale, but this book made me love him even more. He loved Katniss so much that he was willing to make any sacrifice for her; what girl wouldn't fall for that?

Any additional comments?

I loved all the action of this book, it was truly amazing, but I didn't love how Katniss fell apart, and I didn't love the end. The way it is written makes complete sense, and is probably how a person would handle it, if it were real life, but I just didn't like it, I wish she was strong and unbreakable to the last moment. This doesn't say anything about the author or the writing, just my preference.

Not as bad as the reviews imply

I guess I disagree with most of the negative reviews... I don't think it was that bad. It wasn't as great as the first two books, but it tied things up reasonably. Yes, Katniss was a little whiny... but she's just 17 years old, so I think it is realistic. If no one dear to Katniss died, then it wouldn't be realistic. I am not disappointed at the ending... if the ending was a completely happily ever after ending, it would have seemed fake. Overall, I liked the series. I am looking forward to the movies b/c the author will be involved in the project.

I Loved This Series but...

I was completely in love after reading Hunger Games. I anxiously waited for Catching Fire and likewise counted the months, then days for the release of Mockingjay. I finished the book, and was just sitting, staring. My husband asked me if I was okay. I wasn't sure. The book was jarring and left me depressed.

The author is a wonderful writer and narrator was great, but the story was grossly disappointing. It always seems that the last chapter of trilogy books are a fast forward, tying up loose ends but there is no depth, just a few words of resolution for the reader. Mockingjay feel into that trap. I adored the first, less so the second because of its abrupt ending, but I was very disappointed in the final installment.

Well done... but bitter-sweet...

As to be expected whenever a book that you have grown to enjoy comes to an end, you get a bitter sweet feeling. It gets worse when the book ends in a way that you don't really perceive it...

The book was narrated well enough; I think it was done far better in this book more due to the fact that the mental state of the characters in this book suited the narrator's strong area. The narrator does tortured/confused very well... you'll get what I mean when/if you listen to the book.

The book was bitter-sweet at the best. I feel sorry for how scarred and broken most of the characters ended up IMHO and the end of the book seemed somewhat rushed to me. It was good... but not great, definitely not up to the standard of the previous 2 books, but it was good enough. Not horrible to the point where it is unreadable of course, just bitter-sweet overall...
