Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.
Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

apparently prim gets blowed up by the mine and at the end katniss will either end up with Petta , or Gale
u had to say that!, I am just about to start the book in about a week or so when I get it. Now I want to go to the library right now, and its 10 o clock PM!
i hate the "team" stuff. they make it sound like a stupid love triangle. mockingjay was good, but it depressed me. its not that its not a good book, its just super depressing.

I so agree with the whole annoying "team" thing. This isn't twilight. I actually find there's a lot of adult topics in there with the social commentary stuff, but sadly it's wasted on most kids. I visited the hunger games page to rate it and got a headache after 2 minutes of the omg peeta is so hot, team gale, omg I love it, omg it's so cool, your cool if you read this, and your not a reader if you don't read this. Yes, because the hunger games far outshines literary classics and if you don't read it your a not a true reader (think I heard a literary critic say that once). Uggh...I hate it when I find a good YA novel because I know what's coming. Most of the point of the book is missed. I have to say though when I do see youngsters that read and critically think about a book and really READ it, it warms my heart and I say a little prayer because maybe not all is lost in the literary world.
we should make a book club dedicated to the hunger games series!!! ok ima create it, and its just gonna be called "The Hunger Games!" okay? omg this is gonna be great!
I completely agree! I hate to say it but it was a complete let down. I mean sure an ending like that wouldn't have been realistic, but who cares! We've already bought into the fantasy of it anyway. I don't know what Collins' problem was, maybe she just got lazy.
I want to read it sooo much.... is it really a bad ending??? :( My friend told me it was bad.... I hope it isn't plz don't tell me what happens!!!!

This is not the best book of the series, it is rather depressing and rather gruesome, but still... more
