It was a very good and interesting book for me. I never knew how teenagers would read this amazing story. I knew it was violent but I read it well. I liked the character Katniss Everdeen in the book series. I thought the book involves the Mockingjay pin in it. I knew that Katniss has survived in the Hunger Games. The book has inspired me to achieve anything I do. I would recommend this to all my friends & family. I really enjoyed reading this book in my English class. I would give this amazing book a very good review.

Spoiler free review. It's hard to rate this book since I did enjoy reading it, but at the end of the day it comes down to expectations and what Katniss represents to you as a reader. I jumped into the Hunger Games trilogy looking for a strong female lead character, one that could also potentially be a literature role model for my daughter, and I don't think I found it in Katniss Everdeen. Not all is bad: the story is well written and the first person narrator works great through the trilogy, it gives us great insight into Katniss' inner thoughts, fears, and emotions. Another thing the book does very well is present the reader with the losses war brings: there is no sacred character in the book that you feel sure will survive, and in fact many of the lead characters die in what feels like quick succession, and without time to mourn them; in this the book accurately represents war. What bothers me is the following: Katniss' reaction to the events that unfold might feel much more realistic than the archetypal hero we so often read in male characters - she is NOT the chosen one, wasn't born with a gift, or is the descendant of a famous general of old; she does NOT embrace the hero role and charges into battle with newfound purpose and surprisingly efficient results. She is just another pawn in a conflict that is much greater than her, and apparently her biggest role in this effort has more to do with fashion and looking the part than actually being the revolutionary leader that I expected her to be. In this the trilogy presents us with a "realistic" protagonist who is emotionally devastated, confused and wary. The problem is that the hero archetype serves a function. We don't read Harry Potter, Spider-Man or Captain America to find the realism of characters who doubt themselves at every turn, we read them to find characters that will do the right thing whatever the cost. These characters are self sacrificing and represent the best in anyone: given a hard choice they will always choose what they believe to be the best instead of shutting down and letting the circumstances drive them until they randomly end up in a situation that benefits the plot. These are characters you would follow in battle because of their unwavering will and their heroism. Katniss Everdeen, albeit well written and fun to read and watch, does not make the cut to join Lyra (His dark materials trilogy), Aenea (Hyperion Cantos), Hermione (Harry Potter series), Carol Danvers (Marvel NOW! Captain Marvel), and Wonder Woman (DC Comics - especially in the New 52 series) as strong heroine role models.

this book was so sad but also pretty good. not as good as the other ones though. SPOILERS: i cant believe what the auther did to Peeta! it was so sad. and when Finnick died i was like WHAT? and then Prim died! and Boggs died! and then she shot Coin! (that wasnt really a problem with me) and then Gale left Katniss! and then (good part) Katniss and Peeta get married and have 2 little kids <3 <3 <3 i thought it had a good ending, but the rest of the book was so sad it was kinda hard to forgive

THE REVIEWS BELOW THIS ONE CONTAIN SPOILERS-avoid them. If you read the first two books you will read this one, so don't waste your time on the reviews.

This book is not as good as the first two. Things happen too quickly, and things with Peeta are really weird ;( But the ending is alright. SPOILING ALERT!!!!!!!!!!! Katniss and Peeta get married, it doesn't really make sense.

Prim dies? Thank you for spoiling T.T i like the first two books, idk about this one. Let's read!

Not as good as the first two books in series. Great action sequences but the inner turmoil Katniss lives through becomes quite tedious and stops the narrative flow needed to sustain a "I can't put book down" vibe.

So this is the last installment of the Hunger Games series. It wasn’t that great in my opinion but it was a great improvement over the previous novel. This book didn’t really have a lot of character development to add on to. Being the last book everything was already said in the previous books. This book, like the others, was written in third person in the perspective of Katniss Everdeen our heroine. In terms of how fast the plot moves in this book I did like the flow. The writing style felt like there was never really a lack of any action or interesting events. One of the things that I don’t really like was that there was way too much detail for my liking, but if you like detail it might not bother you as much as it bothered me. I think that in terms of the ending this book had a pretty strong ending, but at the same time I expected that ending to happen which may be a weak point because it wasn’t very unpredictable like I would have wanted it to be. Another little thing I liked is that the author did include some jokes in throughout the more boring or somber parts to try and lighten the mood. All in all I recommend this book to anyone who has read the other novels. Obviously I wouldn’t recommend just picking it up without reading the other 2 novels in the series because you would probably be lost with what is happening. I give this novel a 4 out of 5

This book was the best. You should all read the epilogue. Many people don't read it at the end, but here in this book you should. What happens is so cute, adorable, and romantic. This book was sad, when a few people died. FYI two sets of couples get married. YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!

Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. In fact, the dangers seem to be escalating: President Snow has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.

Katniss Everdeen is the Mockingjay. She's the leader of the rebels, staged against the Capital. She's assigned to take it down, to motivate people, to encourage the rebellion. But with Peeta in the Capital's hands, saying rebellious things to the world, District 13 is absolute sure that Peeta is a traitor, however, Katniss does not. When it is arranged for a rescue, Peeta comes back enraged, and controlled by the Capital's tampering. Katniss soon loses hope in Peeta, and begins to train for the offical day of the rebellion. When it is time, Peeta comes along, better, but still suffering torturous flashbacks. Through the mission, they lose Jackson, Leeg 1 and Leeg 2, Boggs, Finnick, and many others. When they finally reach the Capital, Gale, Peeta and Katniss part ways. When Katniss reaches President Snow's mansion, she is severly injured by a bombing there in the mansion. She wakes up, discovering Prim, her younger sister, is dead, but the rebellion is won, and District 13's president, President Coin, is now the ruler of Panem. At the execution of President Snow, Katniss does the honours. However, she shoots President Coin instead. She is captured, and put in a room, then later released, with no consequences whatsoever. She goes back to District 12, feeling the effects of war and battle, but slowly recovers. In the end, Peeta and Katniss fall in love again and get married, having two children. However, they're aren't any Hunger Games, happening. But even in twenty years, Peeta and Katniss could never forget these events, haunting them for a lifetime.
