WHY didn't I wait to read this book until the final one came out?!?!?! It has been a loooooong time since I've actually looked forward to the next installment in a series.
This book was just as suspenseful,
fast-paced, and engaging as the first one. Maybe I'm just easily
surprised, but I really felt like there were a lot of twists and turns
in the plot that I didn't see coming. (And, unlike some books, I found
the surprises to be believable and validated.)
Like the first book, I felt that even though the plot itself was somewhat dark, the main characters were inspiring.
gave it three stars instead of four or five because I felt like there
were a few slightly inappropriate scenes which would keep me from
recommending these books to some people. I tend to be fairly picky when
it comes to morality, so even though there wasn't anything very explicit
or highly descriptive, it was enough to make me worried there was going
to be more as I made my way through the book.
I can't deny though, Suzanne Collins' writing style has me hooked, and I definitely enjoyed this book.
