Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty.

    • Why do you have to say that? If you didnt like it, then just keep your fuckin comments to your self, asshole

    • Well ok joe BIGDICK if you really think people are going to take your opinion seriously when you call yourself stuff like that then just wow. these books are amazing and 8000000000x better than twilight because stephanie meyer cant write. the peeta gale katniss love triangle was important to the storyline and if they didnt have it the 2nd and 3rd books would have no plot because the rebellion would have never happened if peeta and katniss didnt pull the stunt in the first book.i understand why your saying this but i dont agree at all. i guess i cant change your opinion.

    • We have some similar thhoguts on this one! I loved the first two in the series but this one was so different for me that it just left me feeling somewhat disappointed. I think it was real in the way that war changes people and so the characterizations here were understandable to a point. It was just so excessive and extreme. I would have enjoyed it much more if the changes were more subtle and reflective. I also had issues with the pacing and the end. But I won’t ramble on too much or you might ban me from commenting ever again, haha.Michelleb4s last [type] ..

  • Does anyone have any good book series suggestions. I really need a new series to read.

    • Read the Gone series so good and a lot like the hunger games. new favorite series. hope it helped.

  • OMG just read the book it is sooo awesome and i cant wait till i read Mockingjay it sounds sooooooo good!

  • Omg i love this book why was there only three?????:(

  • wooooooooooooooooot i love this book

  • Mockingjay was a brilliant conclusion to the trilogy. I can only compare it to “Ender’s Game” – and that is extremely high praise, indeed.

    When I first closed the book last night, I felt shattered, empty, and drained. This book is my favorite of the series, hands-down.
