Mockingjay, the final book for the Hunger Games series continued to be just as versatile and absorbing like the first two books (Hunger Games and Catching Fire). The depiction and development of the epic tale can never be taken anything for granted. The genius writer, Suzanne Collins, was able to cultivate all characters splendidly, so much so that Ifeel concerned about them. Actually, some of the characters’ brutal deaths can be a bit hard to take.
The book is an ultramodern war story that might distress some people since the battles and hostilities are depicted as horrible yet genuine. But for me it was one of the strong points of the magnificent story. Though I am a big fan of The Star-Crossed Lovers (Katniss & Peeta), Mokingjay definitely did not left me frustrated even if the love triangle story (of Katniss, Gale and Peeta) took a back seat because that’s how I guess it should be for it to be a brilliant novel. The potboiler tensions in the story are thickly laid on, which makes it a real page turner.
Aside from the incredible cliffhangers, what I love most was the ending. It left me with the consciousness that life should go on. It was a realistic viewpoint that scars of past will linger in the present and the impact of the hunger games lived on with the remaining characters trying to face the future to live a more normal life.
What I have always fond of about series is its ability to inspire thoughts. It is just ridiculous to read one of these books and not contemplate the deeper value behind the events that occur on every page. Overall it has been an excellent series. It is actually one of the best book series on this planet
