A fantastic end to a fantastic series. The emotional roller-coaster the series as a whole - and this last book in particular - took me on has left me somewhat dazed, but certain in the knowledge that this is one of the best series of books I've ever read. It is perhaps not for the faint-of-heart, because the setting of these books is most assuredly not a nice place, and the twists and turns of the plot are likely to leave you crying as often as cheering. But it is definitely worth your time to read. Thought-provoking, exhilarating, shocking, emotional, instructive - The Hunger Games is all of this and more. I'm torn between sadness and relief that my journey through this world with the characters is over, but I feel richer for having spent time with them.
