it was ok
Read from July 03 to 19, 2012

An "okay" resolution to the Hunger Games trilogy, but probably the weakest of the three books.

I had to struggle to get through this one, as much of the tension and drama seemed forced. I never like it when dramatic situations come from characters failing to do reasonable things.

Also, I'm not sure if I'm supposed to like Katniss after this book...but I don't. In fact, I didn't really like any of the characters that survive... except perhaps Hamich and Joanna Mason.

I would have liked to see a little more about post-war Panem, but apparently the author was more interested in waxing about Katniss and Peeta's future than actually resolving her story.

I recommend this only to those readers who have read "The Hunger Games" and "Catching Fire" and *really* want to see how the trilogy turns out. Overall, if someone asked about these books, I might tell them to read just the first, and skip the others.
