 So they brainwashed Peeta ??? Or is Snow putting him there like a hostage so Katniss relents.

Answering that question would be a spoiler. But you are on the right path, more or less, in both scenarios.

Very cool. Love this. I know a lot of the fans didn't like the last book, I'm in the minority that loved it more than the first one.

Lots of traces of classic sci-fi movies like Logan's Run. Soylent Green, etc...

 ElBaz13...I too, heard that the third book was a disappointment to those who enjoyed the first two but on rare occasions a movie can be better than the book it was adapted from.  I know it's difficult to edit a novel down into a coherent  2 to 2-1/2 hour movie (without losing something important), but sometimes in the course of doing that ugly fat (boring minutiae) gets trimmed away and the leaner movie version of the story is more interesting and exciting.

 @ElBaz13 - I enjoyed the third book as well. Although the first was my favorite, all three were enjoyable and the third took the story in the right direction.

@blankczech - I agree with your thought. I look at the Game of Thrones show as the most recent example. The show is just plain awesome because it is able to take the key story points and present them in a dramatic fashion while the books can be very tedious, drawn out and boring for very long chunks. The show is so much better than the books.
