I'd actually argue you're better off not reading CRISIS. Barry's death scene is underdone hugely in it, compared to the major death the issue thereafter. A much better take on it is in the Secret Origins trade, if you can find it.
Or you can totally avoid the tpb track and pick up the CRISIS novelization, which, since it's narrated by Barry, gives his sacrifice the attention it deserves, and has an epilogue involving Iris and Impulse that's heart-wrenchingly sweet.
