A refreshing look at rebellion

I really enjoyed the last book in the series. Here we see a different take on rebellion than the more violent upheaval of the Hunger Games. One of the best parts of this book is the use of poetry in the rebellion which allows for a detailed discussion of the poem's meanings, how meanings change over time, and the power of literature and artwork. I really liked Cassia's thoughts on creation and what she tries to do to give people the power of creating back. The violence in this book is nothing compared to the second one. The plague continues and we see people die of it plus some other deaths but nothing compared to the scale in the last book or the scene of charred bodies. There is romance in the book but no sex, just kissing again.
