I didn't like the setting as much in this book as in Hunger Games and Catching Fire. It wasn't as exciting or suspenseful. The arena scenes were more interesting and intense to read. But on a positive note, I didn't even think the setting of this book still existed in Panem, so it surprised me when everything took place there. It was nice to see a different outlook of Panem.
The theme of this book was very strong, and I support it all the way.I'd say the theme is about how war is so terrible and so many innocent people die. And also a dystopian society and too much government power. War is more pain than glory. Killing and violence is not the answer, it just causes more problems. This is demonstrated VERY WELL in the book. So well I got teary eyed!
Pretty good I'd say. I got to see a whole new side of all the characters and that was great. Katniss and Peeta were still more exciting in the arena, but I liked them outside of it too. The reader gets to see more of Gale then in the other books. Too bad I hate him now. If you read this, you probably will too.
Wow. This did not end how I expected it to, and I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. Some parts made me want to throw my kindle down and not believe what I just read. Guess it's good there was a twist but still GRRR.
My rating is 4 out of 5 stars. Mockingjay was my least favorite of the three books, but it is still deserves a read. If you read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, you need to read this.
