Mockingjay, Suzanne Collins

The world as we know it has fallen apart. District 12 has fallen apart and Katniss and Peeta have been separated, but at least they are still alive. Katniss has woken up in a strange place, after seeing the arena fall to pieces, it turns out that she is in District 13, a place which she has been told all of her life was destroyed. Luckily Katniss’ family was saved by Gale even though Gale’s family didn’t quite make it out alive. Distric 13 is a whole new world with schedules, and rules, and order, something that Katniss isn’t quite ready to take a hold of after what she had gone through in the arena. She slowly meets in the people in charge of defenses and it turns out they want her to lead the rest of the districts in a rebellion against the Capitol. In a sense they want her to truly be their Mockingjay. Or at least act like one. Katniss has to step into the role that she was placed into, but she doesn’t know who to trust. The gamekeeper who put her in the game, the fierce woman who runs district 13, and where is Peeta? Gale has become apart of the defenses or the army as you might call to help fight, and Katniss’ mom and Prim have taken up their places helping people in the infirmary. During her time at 13 Katniss will be tested once again in more ways than the arena tested her, she will have to step up and be a leader, and she will have to continue to fight for what she believes in and what is right no matter what the consequences might be.

Of course I loved this book, this book distracted me during many calculus classes during the semester. I don’t know how I got so far behind on my posts because I finished this book about 3 months ago. Hey, better late than never. Just like with the other books from the trilogy this one was just as exciting as the rest. I loved it from the beginning to the end though the ending may have not been my favorite, or really the near end. A lot of the fates of our characters I thoroughly enjoyed, while others I wished had stayed near. As for Katniss and Peeta, I’m happy for them. I’m glad that they found each other and were able to accomplish the goals that were set out before them. If you have not already done so, you need to read these books. They are amazing and would recommend them to people of all ages.  Until Next Time
