  1.  Ok this is almost like two seperate books to me in one 21 November, 2014 On Amazon.com
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Ok this is almost like two seperate books to me in one.

    The first is the boring beginning, where we see the consequences of the first book. I understood there would be a strange love triangle here between Katniss, Gale, and Peeta, but it got very tiresome very quickly because there were other things going on that should have eclipsed it, but didn't. Anarchy all around them, the world falling into chaos, and deaths of innocent people, and the possiblitily of her own death at any moment and still the only real thought Katniss has for over a third of the book is whether she should be with Gale or Peeta, and how much she loves Gale, but thinks she has to be with Peeta, it gets very tiresome and very very very annoying.

    But if you see my rating you will see 4 stars and that is because the rest of the book after this was fabulous. Once we get back to the capitol, learn President Snow's plans for the games, the games themself, and the rebellion it is great. We meet new characters like Finnick and Johanna who are fascinating and keeps you endlessly guessing what is going on with them. The plot is meant to have plenty of surprises in it, including the end. I was not surprised at any of them though, I solved the mysteries that are going on much quicker than Katniss or any of those around her so all that fell a little flat, in fact I think what was suppose to be the most surprising moment in the book I had worked out way back in the first or second chapter, the clues were all there and I wasn't even trying to figure it out, I like to be surprised, but no real suprises here.

    Katniss as a lead is still not very interesting or strong of a character to me, but the world Suzanne Collins has created is so amazing that it will keep me reading right to the end.

    Very thought provoking. How can a people live under a dictatorship? People do it everyday in our world. How can we make our world more harmonious without a revolt? This book shows people trying to do the best they can when forced to be leaders of a revolt.
