As most of you probably know, Mockingjay is the third and final book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I reread The Hunger Games and Catching Fire fairly recently, so I wanted to finish the trilogy a second time. The first time around, I didn't like Mockingjay nearly as much; I thought it was too violent. It's grown on me though. The first time I read it, I was going through really fast, and didn't pay enough attention to Katniss's struggle and grief. It was really heartbreaking. The second half is still a little to violent for my tastes, but I definitely enjoyed it much more.
Mockingjay begins basically where Catching Fire left off. Katniss, Gale, and Finnick are now at the District 13 rebel base. But Peeta is still in the hands of the Capitol. The story follows Katniss's transformation from a slightly deranged grief-stricken teenager to the Mockingjay, the symbol of the Rebellion, and back again. This is a good conclusion to the series.
