Mockingjay (Library Binding) by Suzanne Collins
Mockingjay (Library Binding)

cas031462, January 31, 2011

Mockingjay is the final installment of The Hunger Games, a thrilling trilogy in which a young girl, Katniss Everdeen, comes of age in a terrifying future world. In dystopian Panem, the masses live in bleak, impoverished districts, supplying and in subjugation to the Capitol, a corrupt city wherein all advanced technology, leisure and luxury are concentrated and confined. The Capitol rules through fear, and the Hunger Games are a chilling exercise in terror -- a spectacle of violence through technology -- both in the construction of the games, and the use of media to turn the games into entertainment. In Mockingjay, the people challenge the Capitol's power using technology to level the battle field: using the master's signal, as it were, to dismantle the master's programming. At the symbolic center of the struggle, Katniss is ambivalent, reluctant, brave and fierce. I will miss her!
