My Thoughts: Becoming The Mockingjay

      The final book in the Hunger Games Trilogy, Mockingjay is a book that had me on edge with tension, excitement and in tears by the end. Filled with action and emotion the book brings your characters beloved characters to a conclusion in a very trial by fire way that only the Mockingjay herself could have endured. In anticipation of the Mockingjay Part 2 being released I've started my 5th re-read of this book and I can't help but remember how much I love this trilogy.
     Having just been in the 75th Hunger Game with Peeta fighting for her life, Katniss Everdeen, is struggling to figure out friend from foe. Katniss is finding it hard to live in the rebel encampment of District 13 with her mom and sister Prim along with Gale where life is seems to be moving on as normal after the destruction of their own district. However, Katniss can't help feeling guilt over the loss of Peeta who is being held captive by the Capital. President begins to make it clear it's Katniss he wants and He will stop at nothing to end all who oppose him starting with the Mockingjay herself.
     Overall, this Katniss at her lowest and craziest as she picks not only whom she'll stay with but decides to take on the persona of the Mockingjay. The first half of the story is a lot of Katniss' inner dialogue as she weeds through everything that has happened to her and is happening to her. The second half is more interesting filled with intense action and emotion as the trilogy concludes and the ending about breaks your heart. So if you haven't read the book yet and are planning to see the movie soon go for it the movies are a great companion to the books and this one is sure to be the same.
