Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)

Mockingjay (The Hunger Games #3)

First off, are they really going to split this into 2 movies?!  Because that seems somewhat ridiculous.....
But overall this was a pretty satisfying conclusion to the series. In true angsty teenage-centric and aimed books, a 17 year old girl is the key to victory (insert rolling of my eyes at this).

In a reflection of the modern world, the propo's are given almost as much value to the war effort as the actual conflict with the Capitol. And of course as the Mockingjay, Katness is key for this effort. There really wasn't any question about the eventual end of President Snow, but the last couple of chapters were an interesting turn of events.

And yes, as a cat person the most moving part of this book involved Katniss and Buttercup, as they meet right at the end of the book... Both of them hurting and finding comfort in the other after a long period of studied indifference between them.
