My name is Katniss Everdeen.Why am I not dead?I should be dead.
Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.
It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans--except Katniss.
The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay--no matter what the personal cost.
|I read this book about a week after reading the first two book in the series, I had to wait to get the book in from the library. It was the longest week in recent history!
I was so excited to see how the series would end, and I admit – I was definitely a little disappointed with this one. I still LOVED it, but it didn’t have quite the same amount of, I don’t quite know, flavor? that the other two books had. There was just a little something something missing, and instead of reading the book in one night like I did with the first two, it actually took me a couple of nights.
I admit to be dying to reread the whole series again, however, because I suspect that rereading this book a second time will give me new insights into the book.
