Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, 504 pages, read by Rachel, on 11/05/2013

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

I loved the first and second books. The final, however, left me a little confused and disappointed. The plot took off and left character development in the dust. I frequently went back to re-read and thus, found it difficult to get lost in the story.
