Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people in District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collin's groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.
MY OVERVIEW: It is hard to finish a book when you don’t like the main character, never mind an entire series. If the bigger picture of the whole story wasn’t there, then I wouldn’t have finished the series. However, I honestly did like the society problems and wanted to see how everything would turn out.
PROS: Because I liked the story, all the rebellions were really interesting to follow. I liked seeing all the Capitol vs Districts. I just wish we had seen more of the “after-Capitol-take-over”.
CONS: Why do you insist on killing off all the great characters??? And not the ones I want you to???? As usual, Katniss. I also really didn’t like Gale in this one. He seemed to change a lot and not in a good way. Peeta was also his old annoying self too.
MY FINAL THOUGHTS: I am glad it is finally over even if it didn’t end the way I hoped. I just wish I could have seen more of the rebellion through other people’s eyes instead of just Katniss.
