I was so heavily invested in this series and in this story that there was only one conclusion I was willing to accept when I started reading Mockingjay — my 5-star rating illustrates that not only was I not disappointed, I was fully satisfied. The provocative ideas in the final book of the trilogy have me considering questions about what we choose to believe about our friends and also about our perceived enemies. Ultimately, our enemies aren’t others as much as they are the movements or ideas that would encourage the destruction of our fellow human beings. Sometimes WE truly are our own worst enemies. We often have to fight for and discover what’s REAL and true — and that’s the battle that rages in Katniss, Gale, Peeta and others in this final book.
