Collins' fans, grown-ups included, will race to the end." - USA Today "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 "This concluding volume in Collins's Hunger Games trilogy accomplishes a rare feat, the last installment being the best yet, a beautifully orchestrated and intelligent novel that succeeds on every level." - Publishers Weekly , starred review,Praise for the Hunger Games series:"Whereas Katniss kills with finesse, Collins writes with raw power."-Time Magazine"Collins has joined J.K.

A complete let down
What an absolute let down. After reading this book I was upset with myself for reading the first two. I got the feeling that Collins quit thinking after the second book.
It is anti climatic, boring, and dissappointing.
The story continues where book two ends, the revolution is underway and army training in District 13 is being conducted. The first 24 chapters builds you up for this highly anticipated show down. Then over the next three chapters, Katniss (who has the least amount of training and experience) is in charge. Although the story starts loosing it's plausability you read on, then right when the most important battle of the history of Panem takes place, she's unconcious, wakes up after the battle and we missed everything. Then she has a change of view and the story takes place without her for a chapter. The final chapter tells us what went on but it is such a let down and so dissappointing I have no desire to even see the movies when they come out.
Bottom line it was a waste of time.Read full review

Worth finishing the series
The final book does a good job of showing the effects of the war on all fronts. I didn't like how clueless Katniss continued to be throughtout the book when it comes to Peeta/Gale and how war works. Despite everything she and everyone else went through she still had this annoyingly naive and childlike view most of the time. Her constant back and forth views and sometimes downright ungrateful and spiteful actions were sometimes hard to get through. I would have liked for the ending to have been more detailed and much less abrupt like the writer was tired of this story and just decided to say a b and c happened the end.

The title sums up the third book in the series. Great!
The final book in the Hunger Games series is even more gripping and exciting than the first two which were amazing in themselves. Katniss Everdeen, the heroine, has an extremely difficult journey to undergo. She is a very brave 17 year old girl, but she often doubts her choices and actions. This undercurrent is part of what makes this such a wonderful book. She is strong and fights hard but continually wonders how her actions are adversely affecting the people in her life and the people she loves. Suzanne Collins keeps us guessing right up to the end in regards to what people will stay in Katniss' life. As with the other two books in the series it has a great deal of violence and cruelty, but they are necessary in order to tell the story. It is wonderfully written but I would not recommend it to anyone under the age of twelve. For anyone who enjoys stories where goodness finally wins, with a little magic and a lot of blood, this is the book for them.Read full review
