About the author

Biography of Collins, Suzanne

Suzanne Collins was born on August 10, 1962. She was born in Hartford, Connecticut and graduated from Indiana University with a double major in Drama and Telecommunications. Collins went on to receive an M.F.A. from New York University in dramatic writing. Since 1991, she has been a writer for children's television shows. She has worked on the staffs of several shows including Clarissa Explains it All, The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo, Little Bear and Oswald.

She also co-wrote the Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! and was the head writer for Scholastic Entertainment's Clifford's Puppy Days. Her books include When Charlie McButton Lost Power, The Underland Chronicles, and the Hunger Games Trilogy. Book one of this trilogy, The Hunger Games, became a major motion picture in 2012 with Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence portraying the main character of Katniss Everdeen.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-09-16)

In its first week of publication, this third book in Collins's "Hunger" trilogy rocketed to the top of the best-seller lists, proving that teen-reading adults are interested in something other than vampires and boy wizards. For the uninitiated, The Hunger Games (2008), which began the series, posited a world where the United States is no more and a cruel capitol rules over 12 districts that must each offer an annual tribute of two children for a televised fight-to-the-death.

In this final volume, a rebel movement goes to war against the capitol. The costs are high, causing the reader to question the moral rightness of any war, even one against a ruler as evil as President Snow, whose breath smells of "blood and roses". For the past week, Mockingjay has been the topic of backroom discussion in my libraries as friends and coworkers debate its shocking conclusion.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.8 out of 5★ by 127reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Mockingjay was a real disappiontment I was really disappionted in this book. The first two books in the series were two of my very favorite books. In Mockingjay however there is no redeeming factor. Everyone keeps dieing so quickly, the reader doesn't even have time to be mourn their loss. The romance dies and it just ends without making anything better. I hated Mockingjay, and was so disappionted since I loved the first two so much. 09/14/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Captivating I can't begin to describe the overwhelming feeling that I have to read this book once again. The final book of the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay, is enthralling and heart-wrenching. The sheer betrayal amongst the character's morals is nothing short of insane. It not only questions human nature, but delves into the abyss of our history; allowing for yet another connection between the dream world of literature and the reader. Anyone, ages 10 to 110, could devour this book with similar rapt attention. It is uncertain that one could close this book without making an emotional connection with each and every character. Although horrifying in nature, Mockingjay is one of the most beautifully written novels that I have come across. There is so much to learn from literature. This book is of no exception. 08/24/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great value!!!---Great book!!! I couldn't believe that this cost so little.....at big bookstores this would have cost be 20.00-25.00 bucks...here i got it for 8.00 on preorder!!!i have just finished this book its GREAT!!! 08/30/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Really good book I'd been waiting a couple of months for this book to come out and I was not disappointed at all with it. Anyone who has already read the series will enjoy this. If you want to read this but haven't read the other Hunger Games books, read those first or it won't make a lot of sense. The ending was kind of abrupt and some things were rushed but it was still good. 08/30/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I bought this book for my kids. They have read the other books and wanted the last on in the series. It did not disappoint. It can make a good gift for the coming holidays as well. 09/13/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great series for adults and teens!! This is one of my favorite books. It is the third book in the series; the first book is, "The Hunger Games" the second book is, "Catching Fire". These books are very well written and engaging. The series is however, rather violent for young readers. 09/12/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good Book Bought this book for my daughter at her request. She loves it just as much as she loved the previous 2 books. 11/23/2011
