I have to wonder if the author didn't make all the characters unlikeable by the end just so she could be done with this series. She even managed to make Perfect Peeta unlikeable. I don't think I've ever still been enamored with a series by the 3rd book. Maybe I'm just not a series girl. Or maybe the problem is that good characters often have character flaws that run too deeply for me to continue to want to read about their flaws.
