Blurb (Goodreads):

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.

My Thoughts:

*Spoilers might be sprinkled to some parts of this review. :)

I do not understand why people didn't liked Mockingjay. I was thinking..maybe because the Games didn't appeared this time? Or Peeta was nowhere to be seen til halfway through the book and when he came back, he lost his memory? Or because there are events that happened they did not liked? Or because in the ending, Katniss ended up with the guy they didn't want for her?

I don't understand them. Because I loved Mockingjay as much as I loved the first two books. True, I've been frustrated with the events, what happened to some people, but oh God. It was amazing. Breathtaking and unforgettable.

It wasn't easy to say goodbye to a series, especially if that series was the most amazing set of books you've ever read. Well, one of. :) The Hunger Games was a bomb into my reading life. It was one of the books that I didn't saw myself reading and loving at the same time. Catching Fire was an AH-MA-ZING sequel to THG and I thought it was the most amazing thing ever. Did I use "amazing" two times in one sentence? There you go.

Mockingjay was the perfect series ender. I couldn't thought of better scenes, events or alternate ending. And I loved the guy Katniss end up with. Until the end of the book, there's still the mystery of what life they will be having after freedom. Suzanne Collins seriously rocked this trilogy. And I want to ask for more. Please, more from her, if not THG.
