Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
Suzanne Collins continues the amazing story of Katniss Everdeen in this second novel of the phenomenal Hunger Games trilogy.
I was originally hesitant about reading this series based off the back of the covers. It originally seemed like all about a Dystopian society something along the lines of Brave New World and I didn't really want to read something like that.
Luckily I gave it a shot and I was not disappointed.
The first was awesome and unique and this one is right along the same lines making me grip the pages with excitement and sleeping less and less just to finish the book.
Part of me hates Katniss and part of me likes her. But all of me LOVES Peeta Mellark.
I find myself falling in love with this fictional character...not that its the first time but he very different from our Edwards, Patches, Sams, Jaces, Harrys, and so many countless others.
Collins brings her characters to life and make them seem like, although this future is somewhat unrealistic and realistic at the same time, they could be real.
It gripped my hearts strings... had me biting my lips ( I do like this new character of Finnick) and everything else that a good book should do to you.
