Suzanne Collins has written a very observant, shockingly familiar, social and political criticism as a sub text to her young adult series.Shaming as well as shameful To date, I wonder how many children have been sacrificed in wars around our world How many countless children suffer near starvation on this planet, when half the world throw tons upon tons of food into the garbage How trivial is our obsession with appearance plastic surgery, boob jobs whilst thousands upon thousands of children don t even have clean water to drink.If you think Ms Collins has written a thrilling dystopian novel, you re right, she has Now read it again the message is Loud and Clear Because something is significantly wrong with a creature that sacrifices its children s lives to settle its differences And she s not talking about the Capitol. Really enjoyed this book I had seen the films and wanted to read the books as usually I read the books before watching the films However I was impressed that the films capture a lot of the books The books, though, have an additional element to them They are less about the love triangle of the films, and about capitalism, politics, government and understanding how close our society could become to a similar dystopian future An excellent read, and I thoroughly enjoyed the series The first two books were available on Kindle Unlimited but I was hooked and had to purchase the third and final instalment. Finnick I say, Maybe some pants He looks down at his legs as if noticing his outfit for the first time Then he whips off his hospital gown leaving him in just his underwear Why Do you find this he strikes a ridiculously provocative pose distracting I laugh Boggs looks embarrassed and Finnick looks like the guy I met at the Quarter Quell Suzanne Collins, MockingjayThe third book in the hunger games trilogy is much better than the second, I was quite relieved Unlike the second where I had a sense of dejavu this was back to its original uniqueness yes, I have decided that is a word You re still trying to protect me Real or not real, he whispers Real, I answer Because that s what you and I do, protect each other Suzanne Collins, MockingjayWe carry on in this book where the second left off Peeta is still being held in the capitol and everyone else it still in district 13 There is a lot of action some quite gruesome deaths ,some of which are of a couple of quite beloved characters I have to admit you start to loose the will to live along with Katniss when reading this book What I need is the dandelion in the spring The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses That it can be good again Suzanne Collins, MockingjayMockigjay was a book I didn t want to put down as I was desperate to see who got to the end The ending is good, not corny, which I was worried it would be It is defiantly worth getting through catching fire to read this book I give it four out of five stars I clench his hands to the point of pain Stay with me His pupils contract to pinpoints, dialate again rapidly, and then return to something resembling normalcy Always, he murmurs Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay My Name Is Katniss Everdeen Why Am I Not Dead I Should Be DeadKatniss Everdeen, Girl On Fire, Has Survived, Even Though Her Home Has Been Destroyed Gale Has Escaped Katniss Family Is Safe Peeta Has Been Captured By The Capitol District 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 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 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
