So-- I am not really going to review this one right now, I might whenever people have plenty of time to read and process.I will say that I loved it, Collins writing gripped me once again. I flew through this book, and felt all sorts of emotions. Her writing is superb, and she weaves a beautiful story. I give it 5 stars, and I appreciate the way that she ended the book. I am not quite sure what I wanted but she did better than I ever could. It is as happy an ending as could be warranted by this series.
Katniss remains strong and true to her character, though she is of course drug through even more hell. I do wish we could have seen a little more emotion, but given what the girl has been through, I would be more than numb.
I also am very sad and frustrated about one of the deaths (not really a spoiler, I mean come on, you KNOW someone is gonna die) because I wish that this person could have just been able to extend their happiness.
The light note in the story was Buttercup. I love it. Hiss. :)
Please let me know what you thought and link your review if you would like. I would like to hear other opinions.
