Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss's family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.
It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans -- except Katniss.
The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss's willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels' Mockingjay -- no matter what the personal cost.
After I stop crying and get some sleep, I'll figure out what to say about this book. :'(
*Posted on Goodreads right after finishing this book*
So after taking a few days to take in what I'd read... I think I'm able to write my review.
I am still in shock about the things that happened in Mockingjay. Like... basically everything!! I read a few people's reviews about being disappointed with the third book, but I don't feel disappointed whatsoever. I think everything that happened in this book, should have happened. The way Katniss does the propos and tries to be the Mockingjay for the districts. Its admirable. I think I cried whenever someone died, especially a certain someone who I will not name.
(If you've read this, then you'll know exactly who I am referring to).
I gave Mockingjay 5/5 Butterflies!
