Summary/Review: The final installment in The Hunger Games trilogy is the strongest of the series. The whole series is built on moral ambiguity and in this novel Katniss Everdeen finds herself among the revolutionaries in an austere and militaristic society. She once again finds herself being used as a symbol for propaganda and uncertain who to trust. Collins does a great job of detailing the unromantic truth of war and the ignoble motivations of those involved, even the “good guys.”
