Mockingjay (the Hunger Games, Book 3)
Mockingjay (the Hunger Games, Book 3)

Christia, January 1, 2012

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this series, having originally somehow thought the "young adult" genre designation would indicate a relatively fluffy read. I couldn't have been more wrong. Ms. Collins has crafted an intense, dystopic version of Northern America in which young girls and boys are forced to fight to the death in a televised spectacle for their oppressors, and despite the brutal world, introduces intensely sympathetic characters. In this third riveting book, the battle is on for the future of society, and Katniss, is once again thrust into a world of political intrigue and physical danger. Mockingjay does not shy away from the implications of life in such a brutal world, nor of the potential for moral grayness in those who fight back against the oppressive system.
