(Oct 2010) I really, really liked this series! This third book in the set read a little more slowly than the others for me, but I didn't mind that. Sometimes when I fly through a book too quickly, I end up feeling like I've eaten a great meal without tasting much of it (and I imagine I'll end up re-reading these before too long so I can "taste" them, so to speak), but I felt like I was able to take my time a bit more with book 3. I know some people have been unhappy with the way things turned out for Katniss, personally, in the end, but I wasn't. I felt like things were just as they should have been, and that Collins had made her case for it well.
