"Collins expertly blends fantasy, romance and political intrigue." --"People Magazine"
Praise for MOCKINGJAY
"Fans will be happy to hear that Mockingjay is every bit as complex and imaginative as Hunger Games and Catching Fire." --"Entertainment Weekly"
"Suspenseful... Collins' fans, grown-ups included, will race to the end." --"USA Today"
"At its best the trilogy channels the political passion of 1984, the memorable violence of A Clockwork Orange, the imaginative ambience of The Chronicles of Narnia and the detailed inventiveness of Harry Potter." --"New York Times" Book Review
"Unfolding in Collins' engaging, intelligent prose and assembled into chapters that end with didn't-see-that-coming cliffhangers, this finale is every bit the pressure cooker of its forebears. [Mockingjay] is nearly as shocking, and certainly every bit as original and thought provoking, as The Hunger Games. Wow." --"Los Angeles Times"
