1. Katniss is just not her normal, ass-kicking self. Instead, she is diluted to being a self-medicating zombie who hides in a closet all the time (no joke.)
2. Many of the characters I have grown to love over the past two books are suddenly killed off.
3. The conclusion (if it can even be called that) seemed rushed, unsatisfying and contradictory. When I closed the book after reading the final words, I felt almost cheated. This book just does not reach the level of awesome as the former 2 in the series.
