Mockingjay by Suzanne Colins

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year (

This book JUST came out so I am not giving away any spoilers.

This book is the most painful book that I have ever read (in a good way). My heart was in a choke hold for the entire book. It's incredibly powerful.

Throughout the three novels Collins creates characters that you fall deeply in love with. And then they die. Brutally. My heart has been broken numerous times by these books.

Towards the end I was in tears. After reading the end I still feel off and I think this book is going to stick with me for a while.

I wondered throughout the book what hidden meanings Collins has within this story. What do you think? Does this society compare to ours in any way?

This is one book that you do not want to miss out on.
