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. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.
It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans--except Katniss.
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 personal cost.
In case you haven’t read my reviews on the other books in this series you can read them here and here. It should be known that of all the books in the series I liked this one the least. I won’t give away spoilers, but at one point I was so upset at Suzanne Collins, that I threw the book across the room. I felt horrible for Katniss in the end because even though she was a Hunger Games victor she was not able to live the life she truly wanted in the end. Also, I definitely thought that the ending could have been better. I would recommend the series because it is an interesting read and I will probably see the next movie when it comes out.
See you in my next review!
