Like the 2nd book, this one took a little longer to reach the stage of “can’t put it down,” and the 1st book was by far my favorite. I was not crazy about the ending in this one, though at least part of it was expected and needed. Can’t say more than that without spoiling.
I will say that if you need to take a break from heavy reading or non-fiction, this series is a fun, entertaining read all around. I am looking forward to the movie The Hunger Games coming out in March.
