Real or Not Real? Definitely real. Really, really real. And EPIC.This book exceeded all of my expectations for a 3rd book in a series. What an excellent way to end a trilogy. It was an emotional ride. There are absolutely no words to describe how I felt while I was reading this book. The floor is littered with tissues. My eyes are red and puffy. I am drained. Yet, I am satisfied and happy with the outcome.Suzanne Collins – you are a masterful author. You crafted a wonderfully dark book about a world full of despair and devastation. And within the book, there were rays of hope.If you haven't read this series yet, what are you waiting for? I am looking forward to more of Suzanne Collins' books in the future.
