    Description

    Mockingjay is Suzanne Collins’ dystopian novel, in continuation of The Hunger Game series, featuring the brave young protagonist Katniss Everdeen, in her quest to unify Panem.

    Summary Of The Book

    The culminating novel in The Hunger Games trilogy of novels authored by Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay follows the story of Katniss Everdeen, who has twice survived the brutal and violent Hunger Games.

    In this novel, she reluctantly accepts a proposal from District 13, the group behind the rebellion in Panem, by agreeing to be ‘Mockingjay’, the symbol representing the rebellion spearheaded by them, and their president Alma Coin. In exchange, she is assured immunity for all the past Hunger Games’ tributes including her closest friends, Finnick Odair, and Peeta Mellark, as well as the sole privilege of killing President Snow upon his capture.

    To fulfill her end of the bargain, she must participate in a series of films entitled Propos, as propaganda for the rebellion. Meanwhile, the Capitol’s secret plan of bombing District 13 comes to light, and the rebels launch their own military strategy against the Capitol, in retaliation. For this purpose, Katniss is sent on a coverup Propos assignment to Capitol, along with her teammates, and Peeta, under the orders of President Coin.

    However, the assignment in a supposedly ‘safe’ zone, goes drastically out of control, leading to complete and utter disaster, forcing Katniss to take charge. The book is marked with deadly ambushes, ruthless kills, monsters, and explosions, as the violent combat between the rebels and the Capitol ignites to a feverish pitch, leaving no one safe.

    How will Katniss’ own fate unfold, following the deadly aftermath and the unfortunate casualties of war? Written in three parts, with each containing 9 chapters, Mockingjay is a thrilling novel depicting the physical hardships and moral dilemmas that the primary characters experience, under extreme circumstances.

    Mockingjay fared exceptionally well, selling 4,50,000 copies in its first week alone. In 2012, it was decided that the book would be filmed in two parts namely, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, and Part 2, scheduled for 2014, and 2015, respectively.

    Stop with the spoilers.

    Hey Nayantara Sam, Stop it. I was halfway through reading your review, and you had practically given away the whole story, and spoiled the book for a lot of people, you know. So just remember in the future not to do this. Because it irritates some people enormously. Btw, the book is great, people!(Since I do have to write something about the book as it's a review)

    Fantastic quality!

    Mockingjay was voted the Goodreads Best Book of the Year in all Genres of 2010 and the best hero and heroine votings went to it too! An awesome ending to an awesome trilogy, a perfect blend that captivated the minds of all readers.
    I received the book I'd ordered alongwith Catching Fire and The Hunger Games, all published by Scholastic, but available in Flipkart in the same quality but a lesser price.
    Thank you Flipkart!

    Good and Nice Conclusion - A MUST BUY

    This was a brilliant conclusion to the trilogy. I can only compare it to "Ender's Game" - and that is extremely high praise, indeed.

    When I first closed the book last night, I felt shattered, empty, and drained.

    For the first two books, I think most of us readers have all been laboring under the assumption that Katniss Everdeen would eventually choose one of the two terrific men in her life: Gale, her childhood companion or Peeta, the one who accompanied her to the Hunger Games twice. She'd...

    the end is too abrupt. you just keep wondering WHY!(i would have elaborated but then that would mean 'giving the story away' to those who havent yet read.)
    otherwise a fine gripping read!
