Review and Summary of The Novel Mockingjay

***Warning Spoilers Below This Point***

The tale begins with Katniss who lives in an underground world of District 13. Here, Katniss is struggling with its fears, losses and mental issues but still manages to become a Mockingjay even when she did not like to become one at all. She realises that in order to save her loved ones she needs to take up this highest grade of rebellion and she accepts the challenge even when she did not like the idea.

Katniss is a real warrior; she lost a lot in the war but ultimately survives. In the end, she marries Peeta and they have two children. Together they write a book in the memory of their lost loved ones.  Although, the terror and destruction of war still flashback in their minds they still manage to comfort each other.

The Hunger Games ended by the Paylor’s administration. The gaming arenas turned to the memorials but still, Katniss suffers from the past’s scars and the grief of the lost loved ones. She is afraid of the day her children will get to know about their parent’s past. However, she loves her contented life and wants to forget by playing comforting games and try to overlook the past.

Final Say on The Novel Mockingjay

Terrifying hunger games and subsequent consequences form part of this novel. The storyline surrounds our protagonist Katniss who tries to save her loved ones and converts into the Mockingjay. The novel makes you understand how war possibly feels.  It presents a thrilling and emotional end where Katniss finally settles contentedly. Unfortunately, the continuous struggle and the intensity let you stop reading the book for a minute.  In my opinion, the novel remains interesting and a must-read, therefore, I decided to rate it as 8 out of 10.
