The Hunger Games .. Mockingjay # 3.. By Suzanne Collins

The final book of Hunger Games is a mixture of battles and politics with an amazing but slightly predictable end of the series.

Katniss Everdeen, a sixteen-year-old girl, who outlasted two Hunger Games - a deadly fight for survival, becomes the symbol of a rebel to overthrow an evil empire for its unspeakable cruelty towards its citizens. 

"It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart."

I have a mixed opinion on this book because, on one hand, it had an amazing characterization and a lasting impression, despite which it fails to generate the level of excitement created by the first two installments with less of adrenaline-driven power acts and more of sorrow and destruction. 

This time it is not about the actual challenge to survive against the other districts, which is what made the Hunger Games books so much fun for me, but it is more about the revolution against the government and the struggle to obtain freedom. Although the book is beautifully written with all the emotions rightfully expressed and with a wonderfully laid out story, it fails to draw the reader into the plot as it did with the other two books.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed the series very much with its perfect amalgamation of sci-fi and fantasy, which is enough to steal the heart of any youngster.

Please check out my reviews on its previous two books:

"Here's some advice. Stay Alive."

Happy Reading!!!
