MOCKINGJAY

Author: Suzanne Collins
Genre: Mockingjay is a young adult science fiction novel. I know this because it has many impossible non-realistic elements that are impossible in today’s day in age, for example the technology the Capitol uses against the districts is sometimes unbelievable and they haven’t been created yet.
Protagonists: The main protagonist is Katniss Everdeen. Katniss is a persistent young women and she overcomes many obstacles over and over again in this series. Gale is another protagonist in this book. Even though he has been in the other books this is the first time he’s played a major role. Gale is a courageous young man who has very strong feelings for Katniss even though she doesn’t return the feelings. Then, there is Peeta Mellark. He’s another protagonist. The book brings him up a lot but due to his capture and then mental breakdown he kind of takes a little bit of a back seat role for the majority of the book even though he is still very important to the book. Peeta was very affectionate towards Katniss in the beginning but then the Capitol captures him and alters his view of her.
Setting: The story mostly takes place in District 13 in Panem. District 13 is perhaps located in or around today’s Pennsylvania. It is an underground facility where people live. Above ground it looks like an abandoned ruined city. These remnants are from the time the Capitol attacked them many years ago and destroyed their city. District 13 and the Capitol have a top-secret agreement to avoid any type of conflict in an effort to avoid nuclear war. There are also important scenes in the Capitol and District 12.
Conflict: When Katniss comes back from the Quarter Quell arena she finds out her home has been destroyed by the wicked Capitol. Although her mother, Prim and Gale are safe, Peeta has been captured by President Snow’s evil pawns. All the districts of Panem are rising up against the Capitol. Katniss now has to become the

    MOCKINGJAY Ladies and gentleman of the jury I find the book mocking jay by Suzanne Collins in 2010 to be very good at keeping me in suspense and keeping me interested. However, there were areas in which the book was not quite as good such as giving all the details, being too violent, and isn’t good for little kids. The book is a good book and I liked it but I didn’t like it as much as I did the first 2 books and this last book disappointed me. I was expecting some amazing ending to the series of…
