review by . December 04, 2010
When The Hunger Games first debuted in 2008, I began to read it and I was stunned by the books excellent pacing, amusing characters and the amusing situation of throwing several people into an arena to see who comes out alive.  It was, for the most part, a rather simple book.  One that was dark, violent and mysterious but it never glorified the act of violence, nor were the more violent moments hard to swallow.  For all intents and purposes, The Hunger Games was a fantastic book.    …

MockingJay: Great Book But Not The Best (Spoiler Alert!)
Warning! Don't read if you plan to read book 2 and haven't yet. There's a few spoilers for those who've not read book 3 yet but not many. You've been warned, read at own risk. Otherwise, enjoy.      The Hunger Games Series has been a wonderful ride. Suzanne Collins has created a wonderful world of the ashes of the USA and North America. Panem is the country where you meet Katniss Everdeen from District 12 and are introduced. Then readers learn fully about …

Dystopia, Big Brother and post-apocalypse are themes that have been included in novels so often that it could well be a life's work for a librarian to prepare an exhaustive catalogue of titles. But, in terms of quality, the devil is in the details and Suzanne Collins has justifiably taken the world by storm. Suzanne Collins HUNGER GAMES trilogy, inspired by the legend of Theseus and the Minotaur, is an innovative, dare I say unique, young adult twist on the recurring themes of violence, cruely, …

I was fully prepared to rave about 'Mockingjay,' the last book of the Hunger Games series. I was ready to love it as much as I did the first two, and to channel that love into words of high praise. So imagine my surprise when I finished the book and was left with an unexpected feeling: disappointment.    I got a sense while reading the book that Suzanne Collins was making an attempt to create a big finish ending, which is another strange thing, because I felt like 'Mockingjay' …
Quick Tip by . December 24, 2010
Suzanne Collins' brilliant conclusion to the HUNGER GAMES trilogy, graphically showcases the horrors of war - loss, heroism, courage, death and destruction, bravery, leadership - and injects horrific new meaning to the "terror" in "terrorism". Her depiction of the aphorism "Power corrupts but absolute power corrupts absolutely" is spellbinding.

   It's all back!  The drama, the great characters, the relentless pacing and the delicious politics.  It's all back with Suzanne Collin's "Mockingjay" -- the 3rd and finally installment in the "Hunger Games" trilogy.      And for those of you who didn't get a chance to re-read the series, don't worry, Collins does a great job in the beginning chapters of firing things up again.  She ignited my own sense of loss …

Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire, the spark that started a revolution, once again finds her life in chaos. Rescued from the Quarter Quell and whisked to District 13 and the seat of the rebel cause, Katniss is expected to take up her role as the figurehead of the rebellion; as the Mockingjay so ready and willing to fight the Capitol. Peeta is captured. Probably dead–it would be best if he were dead. District 12 is gone. And Katniss finds she can no longer hide from the war she never meant …
review by . September 20, 2010
Mockingjay is the third and final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, and again, author Suzanne Collins, leads expertly straight into the story, weaving just enough reminders into her character's thoughts to bring readers up to speed without needing to slow the action to explain. The author has an amazing talent for clarity in a complex tale, for balancing showing and telling, and for describing action and introspection each with fearful intensity. She keeps the reader glued to the page, and keeps …
review by . August 30, 2010
The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins comes to a bloody end with Mockingjay, the series' final volumes. (I reviewed the first two volumes here and here.)      The story takes place in North America, sometime in the future. A civil war between the Capitol and its thirteen districts resulted in the annihilation of District 13 and the imposition of the Hunger Games on the remaining twelve. For seventy-five years, each district has sent one girl and one boy between the …

Never has a series touched me like The Hunger Games series. Every moment, every heart ache, every bit of dialogue is real. The characters reactions, moments of clarity, moments of insanity, pain, loss, love, hate, anger, hurt, even their drug induced stupors are real, real real.    Parajunkee loved this book? Real.    REVIEW: The culmination of Katniss' adventure comes to an end in the 3rd installment of The Hunger Games, Mockingjay. She has been pulled from …
