The third book of the "Hunger Games" trilogy, written by Suzanne Collins, and released in August 2010. Many of the fans of the books series agree that this conclusion of the series, entitled "Mockingjay" was indeed a letdown. Reasons why include: (spoilers ahead)
1. Katniss is just not her normal, ass-kicking self. Instead, she is diluted to being a self-medicating zombie who hides in a closet all the time (no joke.)
2. Many of the characters I have grown to love over the past two books are suddenly killed off.
3. The conclusion (if it can even be called that) seemed rushed, unsatisfying and contradictory. When I closed the book after reading the final words, I felt almost cheated. This book just does not reach the level of awesome as the former 2 in the series.
Mockingjay is nothing like its predecessors, Hunger Games and Catching Fire. It was a major letdown.
The Mockingjay sang sweetly as the sun
1. the third and final book in the Hunger Games
-major letdown after the first two books (hunger Gmes & Catching Fire). The ending was rushed and sort of disappointing, plus the fact that some awesome characters I've come to love were killed off.
2. a combination of mockingbird
and a jabberjay
-hunger games creature introduced in the beginning of the trilogy
1. It seems like Suzanne Collins
got bored and just decided to sum up the entire Hunger Games trilogy in one week.
2. I'd love to have mockingjay! Those are some kick-ass birds!
From "The Huger Games
"Funny birds and something of a slap in the face to the" oppressive government which had bred the all male Jabberjay
as information gathering homing birds. The rebels used them to spread miss-information and the government abandoned the birds "to die off in the wild. Only they didn't die off. Instead, the jabberjays
mated with female mockingbirds
, creating a whole new species that could replicate both bird whistles and human melodies."
A symbolic icon worn by Katniss Everdeen
, first as a symbol of protection and a totem from her home district.
The origins of the Mocking-jay pin differ in the book and the movie.
