Wow. What a sequel. I can’t believe it. This book was absolutely crazy. But so amazing. This book carried on the story from The Hunger Games perfectly, and added so much to the series. The idea for this book, the story line, the staging, everything was so perfectly done. The situation that Katniss is in can only be described as dire, and I was feeling every single emotion with her. I was so invested in this book! So many things happened and when I finished I literally sat there for like 5 minutes with my mouth hanging open thinking “What the heck just happened”. Warning, this ending will kill you. It was so thrilling and out of the blue, you will not believe it. There are several twists in this book, and I will admit that I saw most of them coming. In fact, I figured it out pretty early on in the book, but other things I couldn’t quiet get right, and I loved seeing what I was missing and also if I was right in my original guesses. You guys, this book will leave you an emotion wreck…in a good way.
Who loves hot new characters? I DO! I give you Finnick Odair. I love this man. I seriously do. His personality, sexinnes, and spirit made me love him immediately. As for Katniss and Peeta, I feel about the same as I did in The Hunger Games about them. I did really love the addition of a few new characters, such as Johanna and Beedee. I really loved them both as well.
As I’m writing this review I have actually read the entire trilogy, and I have to say that this book and The Hunger Games are my favorites from this series. What an amazing book and sequel!
