Katniss is the Mockingjay – the face of the revolution. With her cooperation, the refugees of District 12 along with the citizens of District 13 will take down the Capitol, save Peeta and kill President Snow.
They just need the other eleven districts to join the revolution first.
Going into this book I only knew half of what was going to happen. I had seen Mockingjay Part 1 while it was in theaters, so I pretty much flew through the first half of the book. The pace of the book actually seemed much faster than the movie counterpart.
Then again, they took a relatively small book and made it into two movies. I mean, the book isn’t exactly the size of the final Harry Potter book.
Once I was past the events that I had seen on screen, it was a new world for me to read a part of the Hunger Games world and now know what would happen. It was definitely exciting for me. There were some parts I was definitely expecting, like Katniss getting shot in District 2 and the deaths of certain characters (I won’t say in case anyone doesn’t know who). It was a little upsetting at how quickly characters were picked off.
Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book the most out of the three, because I didn’t know how it would end and I was actually happy with the ending. And I was so excited to have actually read the book before seeing Mockingjay Part 2, that I went out that night and got it from Redbox so I could see the end of the book in action.
Did you read the Hunger Games trilogy? Thoughts on it?

Ooh interesting, I’ve watched all of the Hunger Games films, but I haven’t read any of the books – I know, I’m doing it all wrong! I could see how the final book would move at a faster pace than the 2-part film though. Mockingjay Part I was the most forgettable for me, but the ending was great. :)
Haha, that’s okay. I saw the first three movies before I read the books… but I was determined to finish Mockingjay before I saw Part 2. I liked the ending as well :D
