Revolution is taking place in every corner of Panem. Katniss has taken on the role of the Mockingjay, the face of the rebellion. We still get to see Katniss' kick-butt attitude and fire, but I feel that her character isn't as strong this time around. It seems that she spends a little bit too much time not doing anything to avenge the lives lost in District 12 and a little bit too much time being made up to be on television.
Even though I felt that this was a bit of a let-down after the amazingness of the first two books, it is still a worthy read. There were moments that I found myself cheering for Katniss- especially during one particular scene at the end (I can't give it away, but it was awesome!). And though this was not my favorite of the series, I still recommend it to readers. It would be impossible to try to read the first two books and not finish the series. I can almost guarantee that once you start this series, it will take only a matter of days to power through it. It is a fast paced journey that you won't soon forget.
