This book had its high points and low points. I was a little disappointed as it wasn't as gripping as I was hoping it would be. I found it dragging in places with far too much telling and not enough showing. I didn't get to connect with the characters as I was hoping I would have. Katniss also annoyed me at times with her confliction of who to choose, Gale or Peeta. I always knew it was going to be Peeta. With such catastrophies going on around her, I found that it wasn't terrifying to read. I couldn't put myself in her shoes. Katniss just didn't jump off the pages enough for me to grasp her character.
To round off, the trilogy has been a good one, but not a great read.
