Book Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Goodreads Summary:
Young Katniss Everdeen has survived the dreaded Hunger Games, not once, but twice, but even now she can find no relief. President Shit has declared an all-out war on Katniss, her family, her friends, and all the oppressed people of District 12. The thrill-packed final installment of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy will keep young hearts pounding.
This book, for me, was a big disappointment when compared to the first two books of this trilogy. I had a hard time even getting through it, where with the first two books I read them in a couple days each, it took me almost a month to get through this one. I really didn't feel like anything was really resolved, and there were only more questions left to answer.
I was really disappointed with Prim's character development and how the author just seemed to discard he'd like yesterday's leftovers. The story didn't even really start to pick up until about three-quarters of the way in.
