I will give nothing away. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Nichts. But what I will say is this: Suzanne Collins is a masterful author. Why? Because she can keep you on your toes for 390 pages, wrap up loose ends and still leave you feeling unsettled. But I suppose that's what a book about world war should do, regardless of which side is victorious.
Tomorrow, I will proudly wear my "District 12 Tribute" t-shirt that I purchased earlier this week and encourage all of my students to read this series (no offense to Stephanie Meyer, because I loved the Twilight Series, but this series? So much better). And I will say - simply for the benefit of those who know me well and know my rantings about how I felt that this series should end: Suzanne Collins, thank you for the ending to this book. It is perfect. Before I read it I wanted only one thing (which I will not divulge at this time). You presented an ending with the things that I wanted - needed so deeply - but didn't know it. And, sleep soundly. I was afraid if the book didn't end a certain way I'd have to hunt you down. No worries about that now though. In fact, I should probably bake you cookies or something.
And my humblest apologies to any author whose books I read in the next few months. Don't know when I'll come down from the high of this book.
