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.
I’m going to admit that I wasn’t too crazy about the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I felt like I was reading the whole Hunger Games once again with some tweaks here and there so I was a bit bored. :-( Plus things were quite too obvious from time to time and somewhat predictable. I’m just hoping that the last book, Mockingjay, is so good that it was all worth it! :-)
By the way, every time I talk about this book and its concept to others, they all think it’s just an awful story. Well, I thought so too at first but I kinda like it now. I wonder if there’s something wrong with me…you know, mentally! :-)
