Mockingjay Book Review

  1. 1. ==== ====Mockingjay: Who Do You Think Should Pay For The Unrest? Check This Out ====Mockingjay is the third and final installment of the Hunger Games trilogy, following Hunger Gamesand Catching Fire. If you havent read these books, I would highly recommend them. They arentuplifting, humorous, or light but a good read still.At the beginning of Mockingjay, Katniss is in the hands of the rebels in District 13 while Peeta is inthe hands of the Capital and President Snow. The rebels want Katniss to be their symbol of hope,their "leader" in a propaganda sort of way. When people see her, they will want to fight. WhereverKatniss goes, a TV crew is right along her side, and they are able to infiltrate the Capitals systemand show her on TV around the different districts & capital, hoping to stir up the rebellion. What Ilike about Katnisss character is she isnt a good actress - but what she does is because of herown decisions, and instincts. She is a fighter, she feels sorrow & pain, and she feels confusion.The Capital brings Peeta on the TV, begging Katniss & the rebels not to start a war - that too manypeople will be killed and no one will be left. He begs her to stop, but Katniss does what she feels isright. War is inevitable - the Districts are tired of being under the control of the Capital, but is thenew rebellion government what they need?The story itself is rather dark and dreary - it is a war book. People die, you get frustrated with therebels, you are enlightened about other Hunger Game victims, and confused by what is right.Katniss isnt the perfect character, but what human is? Do things get resolved in this book? Yes. Isit a happily-ever-after book? No. How could it be? Katniss has experienced having to kill people,having her friends killed, the Capital poisoning the minds of her friends, toying with her mind, theloss of her home, etc? What kind of person would you be after experiencing all that?This series is depressing, but engaging. I couldnt put down any of the books, and am relieved thatthe series is finished. No more waiting!Bonnie Chambers manages, a web blog offering book reviews onvarious forms of literature.Article Source:
