Review - Mockingjay

NOTE: If you have not read any of the trilogy, DO NOT CONTINUE. There will be spoilers!

This is the synopsis from Amazon:

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 one 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.

My review: 3.5 stars

Plot: With as much as I liked the first two books, I was very disappointed with this one. It was a very slow start, and made me wonder where on earth the book was going. The ending just stopped; there wasn't much closure.

Characters: Katniss is VERY annoying in this book. She is constantly whiny! Also, the way Collins developed Peeta's character made me MAD! I seriously considered not finishing the book. And she killed off to many characters throughout the ending, ones that should not have been killed.

Setting: I liked that Katniss finally got out and saw the war from other districts' eyes. It really made her cause more believable.

Overall: As I said before, I was very disappointed with the ending of the trilogy. I was hoping for more closure, rather than the passive ending there was.
