- Author Suzanne Collins
Overall, this trilogy is great. The first book remains the best and I found them gradually decreasing in my favour, but this final book is still a good way to finish everything off.
I don’t know if it’s because I read the second and third parts back to back, but I did find this one exhausting. Nothing ever goes right, people are always getting hurt, and at one point, even Katniss admits no one should be able to survive what she’s going through. She’s constantly breaking down and having to rebuild herself, just in time for something to break her down again. It is pretty gruelling and draining to read.
I was confident of the ending as soon as I started reading, it seemed quite obvious which way she would go, but I did not predict her greatest loss. It left me feeling that actually, considering why Katniss went into the games in the first place, it was all a bit of a waste of time.
However, I’m happy I read it, I would recommend it, and I still can’t wait to see the film.
