The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
Praise for The Hunger Games: I couldn't stop reading. -- Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly The Hunger Games is amazing. -- Stephenie Meyer Brilliantly plotted and perfectly paced. -- John Green, New York Times Book Review Praise for Catching Fire: Whereas Katniss kills with finesse, Collins writes with raw power. -- Time Magazine 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 * This concluding volume in Collins's Hunger Games trilogy accomplishes a rare feat, the last installment being the best yet, a beautifully orchestrated and intelligent novel that succeeds on every level. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
