As my friend K.M. said, I am so glad this series is over. This was, by far, the most violent of the three books and I feel like I just returned from a war zone. The detail of the grisly violence was a bit much for me, but I kept on reading because in the end I really did care about Katniss and Peeta and the many other characters of this book. But what a miserable life they all live in this world. Even the "happy" ending isn't all that happy and I was left feeling kind of deflated and sad at the end of this series.
