I think you'd enjoy it but would have some questions about some things. I've read some of the issue and flipped through the whole thing though. There might be a page in the front that will fill you in on what's gone on before.
I don't think you'd be lost. I think you'll get a decent idea of what's going on. You'll just be curious why things are the way they are.
I think you'd be okay. I thought there was a little too much exposition/recapping for the final issue of a 24 issue series, so it might just be enough to get you by.
There's always Wikipedia....

Here's what I did: I bought issues #23 and #24 yesterday. The only other issue of this series I have read is #0. I'll let you know what I thought of them after I've read 'em.
I did read the complete series and there is something that I think didn't make sense, perhaps someone could explain it to me.
Every resurrected character had a mission, once they fulfilled it their life was returned to them, and all of them managed to complete their mission except for Hawk, as a consequence he remains alive, but his life is not him, he will remain an avatar of war.
The thing that didn't make sense to me is his mission, until the last issue we didn't know how were things going to fall together, but once they did I don't understand why did the white lantern needed him to do what he didn't.
Captain Boomerang was supposed to attack Dove with a boomerang wich he did, Hawk was supposed to catch the weapon, wich he tried but failed to do, instead of him Boston Brand gets in the path of the weapon avoiding it to reach the girl and dying in the process, his death results in his life force passing to Alec Holland so he can became the Swamp Thing, it was neccesary that he died, and falling in love with Dove led him to sacrifice his life.
What would have happened if Hawk had been succesful when he attempted to catch the boomerang? neither he, nor Dove, nor Boston Brand would have been killed and therefore Alec Holland would have remained death, unable to be possesed by "the green" and unable to stop Nekron from destroying the world, therefore Hawk mission made no sense at all, is nice to have him around (altought I liked the female Hawk wich no longer is) but why did the white lantern bothered to making him live again?
