Review

Praise for Mockingjay:
#1 USA Today Bestseller
#1 New York Times Bestseller
#1 Wall Street Journal Bestseller
#1 Publishers Weekly Bestseller
A New York Times Notable Children's Book of 2010
A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice
A 2010 Booklist Editors' Choice
A 2010 Kirkus Best Book of the Year
A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2010
"Fans will be happy to hear that Mockingjay is every bit as complex and imaginative as Hunger Games and Catching Fire."
-Entertainment Weekly
"Suspenseful... 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

From the Inside Flap

"My name is Katniss Everdeen. Why am I not dead? I should be dead."

Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Though she's long been a part of the revolution, Katniss hasn't known it. Now it seems that everyone has had a hand in the carefully laid plans but her.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay - no matter what the cost. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

My teenage sister recommended this to me so I thought I'd try it. I loved it so much that I read it in one day straight, and then went and bought the next 2 and read both of those in a day each. This is teen fiction done at its best. I've ended up having great conversations with my sister about propaganda and all sorts of things she'd never really thought about before. making these things accessible to teenagers whilst having writing and a story that appeals to all ages is a rare gift :)

The story begins with the reaping and Katniss volunteering to take her sister’s place. Written in the first person singular we know her thoughts, feelings and motivations. “How could I leave Priim, who is the only person in the world I’m certain I love?”

Like many dystopian novels this world is ruled by an oppressive regime which seeks to remind their citizens of the price of rebellion. Every year they take a boy and a girl from each district to fight in the gladiatorial arena. The leader is this regime is President Snow, an ironic name given that he is anything but pure in his motives. His symbol appears to be genetically modified white rose, heavy in its perfume it disguises the smell of blood, caused by the poison he made his enemies drink over the years. Almost like a sinister and benevolent Stalin, who rids himself of the competition, not quite the night of the long knives, but just as deadly.

The subsequent books in the series give more detail about the rebellion. There is the presumed destruction and abandonment of district 13, now the rebel base. The Quarter Quell where victors of the games compete in a special anniversary tournament. At first I felt this was merely a repetition of the themes of the first book, but it soon becomes clear these games are less of a competition and more about working together in support of the rebellion.

When the force field surrounding the arena is destroyed Katniss and her allies are rescued, but Peter is captured and tortured by the Capitol. Used in their propaganda war, his mind is manipulated so much that he no longer knows what is real. When he is rescued he becomes a liability, even trying to kill Katniss. Eventually the balance of his mind does return, but you do feel he’ll be forever scarred.

Despite describing a tradition going back to the Roman gladiatorial games, that has been rehashed countless times since, the Hunger Games manages to approach it in an entirely magical and new way. What’s more, in such a way that proves to be very appealing to young adults and teens. The main protagonist, Katniss, is completely riveting, interesting and relatable. This mix of excitement, character and brutal action (that remains very much human) drives the success of this novel – with equal appeal across gender, age, and interests.

Well-written, well-paced, enjoyable, a page turner. Any book that I want to pick up and continue with is on to a good thing. I enjoyed the story, characters and twists.

I wasn't so keen on the use of the present tense - I'm so used to reading novels in past tense that this regularly grated. I was also a bit surprised at a few errors, considering the book will have been edited so many times and made so much money - publishers cutting back on polishing books? For example "I know one has found me and the others will be honing in". Should be "homing in" (though it is a common error). There's also some badly-planned sections that come across as unconvincing placeholders. For example, Katniss decides she wants to hunt alone because Peeta is noisy, then come back for him, but doesn't think he'll agree. She hasn't said anything about it aloud but immediately he states that's what she should do, for those reasons. It's the kind of thing an author writes because they have an omniscient view, but later editing should remove the too-obvious god hand.

I should also go and fuss the big grey thing stood in the corner. When I started reading The Hunger Games I knew little about it, having avoided mentions and spoilers and films. I just had a vague thought that it was popular and was dystopian sci-fi, maybe like 1984 – I switched off whenever Hunger Games was mentioned online to avoid knowing more. As such I was surprised as I read it that it seemed so familiar – and immediately connected it with Battle Royale. I kept thinking “Wow, that’s similar, surely it can’t be an accident?” Suzanne Collins says she never read Battle Royale or knew of it as she was writing Hunger Games. I can accept that, though it still seems strange to me.

Some minor spoilers within.

I have read the hell out of these books in the past week - all three of them. It's a tremendously satisfying series of books and every single one of them was hugely enjoyable. However, the last book suffers (a little) from several issues. The first is that it just doesn't feel as coherent as the first two - without the driving force of the Games themselves, it has to be a very different book and the characters don't feel quite so credible to me. The second is that the ending seems to undermine most of the central messages I took from the book. It just doesn't gel - it's a jarring misstep to my sensibilities. The third is that the horror of the central plot-line loses a lot of its impact with the half-hearted way in which events are described. Certain characters, I feel, deserved better in their final send-offs.

Don't get me wrong - it's still an intensely good book, and a reasonably good cap-stone to a tremendous trilogy. It doesn't take away from how good the first two books are, and it stands up well as a book in and of its own rights. It's just I came away from it feeling a little colder than I think I would have if some other paths had been taken.
