As the final book in this trilogy I expected a certain amount of new elements. I was not disapointed, there is a whole host of new dinamics involved. However they were not clearly addressed or resolved. The end was rushed and barely tied up. I was so upset that the final end to the war was not caused by Katniss, there was no great reunion scene with Peeta, and Gale just disapears! Epic let down after a nail biting run.
