Yay, finally we get some rebellion! There are lot of things to like in this one. Finally seeing the heart of the rebellion and finding out that the other side isn't all hippies and freedomlovers. The love triangle resolving itself without all too much drama and also becoming a bit ideological. Things turning even darker as death and torture take center stage. Prim's role as Katniss'es counterpart.

But just like in Catching Fire, after a great buildup events unfurl and head to a close to quickly, suddenly for my liking. I don't begrudge the epilogue, but the the results of Katniss's assassination are a bit too easy, too neat.

Still, great story and a a great series. In the end I think Catching Fire was my favorite, since the upcoming rebellion and Katniss's stupidity were so wonderful to watch. But it was good all the way.
