****Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 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 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plains--except Katniss.
The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's 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.
THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS
Mockingjay disappoints me maybe because my expectations were too high. Characters change so fast. The first few pages were so boring that made me sleepy, and I can't force myself to stay awake to read this because sleeping is my favorite activity. Hahaha. But still, I really liked this book, there are some scenes that kept me from reading this book. Suzanne Collins knew how to keep the readers reading the book even if the readers need to rest or something.
I liked Katniss in THG and in Catching Fire because she's a strong person, physically and mentally. She changed a lot in this book. She became weak and I don't understand her feelings. She agreed on having the last Hunger Games and she said it was for the death of her sister, Prim but I don't think that Prim would agree with her.
Rue and Mags were my favorite characters in previous books(The Hunger Games and Catching Fire). Now, Buttercup is my favorite character aside from Katniss and Peeta. I like Buttercup because he stays with Katniss in the end even though the hate each other, and he still love Prim.
I liked how the book ended. No Snow(Yes! Yes!). No Coin. No more Hunger Games(Weeeee! ^_^). I gave 4 noodles for this book because there are some things that disappointed me, but still I enjoyed reading this book. :)
