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.My thoughts: This is the final book in the Hunger Games Trilogy. What a fantastic series this has been.
Synopsis from Goodreads
What a dark, thought provoking book this was. Out of the three books I actually found this one the hardest to read. After the first 100 pages I had to put if down for a day before carrying on.
Katniss Everdeen has been through the Hunger Games twice and come out alive. The question is, will she be alive for much longer with President Snow baying for her blood? And poor Peeta! How he has suffered at the hands of the Capitol.
The children ... at that scene I had to put the book down again and go make a cup of tea as a pretence to hide my tears.
I don't think this book is quite as good as the last two. So much darker and quite scary and therefore I've only given this one four stars, but if you've read the first two you really MUST read this one. It might not be quite as good as the others but it is still great!
My rating: 4 stars
