|Second book in the Hunger Games Trilogy |
by Suzanne Collins
Just when she thought she could finally relax and get on with her life safe in the knowledge that she's forever exempted from any games, President Snow throws a curve. I thought the couldn't be any way the Capitol could torture her, they came up with a whooper! It's enough to make anyone frustrated. The Capitol thought she's the reason there's unrest in the districts. Now, she has to pay.
The new characters are quite engaging. I am very surprise to like them...perhaps even better than Katniss sometimes. There's minor things I wish were different. The first third of the book was told in summary form, so I didn't get to 'be there' when Katniss meet Gale for the first time after she came home from the Hunger Games. I didn't get to experience their first kiss. However, I am very much looking forward to the third book in the series. I'll see if the library has this item available now.
The Hunger Games movie premiered a few minutes ago in Dallas. I would have gone, except that I have to work at 1 AM. What's even more frustrating is I cannot watch it tomorrow because I'm taking my 3 younger children camping in the wood with other cub scouts family.
