In the finale of the three part thriller we find Katniss heading up the revolution against the Capitol in the fight for freedom. However with Peeta in the tight grasps of Katniss’s powerful and scheming nemesis, President Snow, the last thing she feels like is raising the hopes of her Rebels when she has none.
Katniss’s home has been lost to the bombs of the Capitol and she must realise that she must fight and keep the fires of hope burning throughout the districts if she is to bring a brighter future to the people of Panem. To do so she must face the reality that lives will be lost, hearts will get broken and she must step up and be Mockingjay.
An addictive, page turner that keeps to reading. With horrific and emotionally harrowing events Mockingjay isn’t to be read by younger readers. Even at 15 I struggled to face the realities of distopian Panem and the cruelty inflicted upon the characters. However I would recommend it in a second – one of my favourite reads.
