Does this instalment live up to the previous two? In my mind, no. It seems very rushed by comparison, things happen, then don't happen, then everything is over before you know it.

I can understand that this may be intentional on the part of the author. Since we see everything through Katniss's eyes, we also feel her confusion and frustration at events. Things happen that are beyond her control. This leads to a disjointed feeling; the book doesn't flow easily.

Saying that, I still enjoyed the story. I would give this book a 3.5 if there was that option. I was fairly satisfied with how things worked out but there are a lot of questions I would like to have had answered too.
