I enjoyed the other two books in this series immensely. The reader is excellent and the story is good. It is very realistic and I think perhaps that's the problem with it. The other two were slightly more divorced from reality. In this one you see Katnis endlessly struggling to hold onto her sanity. The war it depicts is brutal and brings out both the best and worst in people. Despite what others have said I did find there was character developement involved. Katnis endlessly struggles with what she must do, even as she hates it. She has been manipulated all along the way and now must determine what is real and must not.
The author made so unusual choices in this book concerning who lives and who die. Some of thsoe who die make choices made in previous books irrelevent. While I know that's how the real world works the end of the other books gave you a sense of accomplishment, that they lived and there was hope. This one the characters lived and you're just glad it's over so they won't suffer any more.
Definitely read this book if you've read the other two. Just be prepared that it won't be pleasant and it ends well, but not necessarily happily.
