From Goodreads: “Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster children for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull’s-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol…”
I devoured this book whole, unable to part with it while anxiously awaiting the 3rd in the trilogy. If you haven’t read the Hunger Games or Catching Fire I just have one thing to say to you: WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Read this now!!
I wasn’t sure how Suzanne Collins would continue with the trilogy after the first book. Her choice of story line for the second book was a pleasant shock. I did not see it coming. I don’t know how to jump in to describing the books’ plot without giving everything away, so I’m going to spare you. Just know that this book is worth the read. It is a well written Young Adult book that I feel transcends well to Adulthood. No matter your age, give it a go! It has romance, action, family dynamics and strength among the people of the Districts, even in tough times.
Now I need to get my hands on Mockingjay!
Rating – 5/5
