How do you rate one of the most anticipated books I've ever seen? Most will love this third and last installment of The Hunger Games. There will be a lot of speculation on which of the three books is the best. Many will be outraged at the ending. Sorry, no spoilers here. Let's just say there are some deaths and the author becomes a virtuoso in poetic irony. I will also say that this is one of the best trilogies I have read and makes me rethink my innate prejudice of that odd hybrid of fiction called the young adult novel. Mockingjay is the equal of both preceding books and you can consider the five stars not only a rating for this book but the entire trilogy.
