Synopsis: The final book in the ground-breaking HUNGER GAMES trilogy. Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena alive, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what's worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss's family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.

My Review: I really enjoyed the final installment of The Hunger Games and I am really looking forward to part two of the movie.

So at the end of Catching Fire you will remember that Katniss got rescued from the Quarter Quell and she is now hiding out in District 13 with a few members from the Quarter Quell, while Peeta was captured and is being held in the Capitol with a few others from the Quarter Quell. It was believed that District 13 was bombed and was just a barren wasteland but it turns out that the Capitol made a deal that the remaining people of District 13 could live underground as long as they keep it secret so they have been hiding underground this whole time.

While Katniss and Peeta were in the Quarter Quell President Snow bombed District 12 - there home - and Gale helped to rescue as many people as he could including Katniss' mother and sister and he took the survivors to District 13.

While in District 13 Gale and Katniss train to fight to take down the Capitol and President Snow and save Peeta and Katniss' mother and sister are training to be District 13 nurses so that they can help to cure the sick.

For a while I thought that they would never rescue Peeta and the others from the Capitol but they did it but with a massive price to Katniss' family.

I thought that the ending was great except for Primm's death - I cried so much at this - and I didn't like the fact that Katniss ended up with the wrong person.

I think the story was written perfectly and all the new characters came to life and I could just imagine everyone of them and every scene. I really hope that a spin-off comes out about Katniss' Gale's and Peeta's life after The Hunger Games and having to survive living in District 12 and the aftermath of Katniss' decision of her kill.
