Today’s review is for the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games). In this book, Katniss and the gang finish what they started in the second book. This book’s formatting is different than the other two, in that the book is more focused on war and fighting than the other two.
In this book, Katniss is the icon of the resistance. She spends a lot of time making videos about how important she is while being kept mostly out of danger. This is frustrating to her, as she really wants to actually help. Eventually, she convinces the resistance to allow her to go into real battle, with surprising consequences.
I liked this book nearly as much as Catching Fire, but not as much as the original Hunger Games. I thought that the focus on the media war was more of a political statement about modern warfare than related to the actual story, but it wasn’t too distracting. I give this story three stars.
