Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster boys for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull's-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol...
What a breath-taking sequel. I'm sure most of you have read this book already, so no need for a long review, and I do think that most of you will agree with me that this is just a clever and riveting book as The Hunger Games.
Katniss, as usual was all I would ever want for a heroine, she's just as courageous as ever. I grew loving this girl. I mean she's high-spirited person, flawed but that makes her perfect doesn't it? I admire her for swearing to protect Peeta in the Arena, her life for his. Her love for her sister, and her mother and everyone she cares about. I felt her lost, her sadness, her desperation and her frustration. I promise you, you'll experience goosebumps moments while reading this book.
And Peeta, I'm just head over heels with this guy, his undying love and loyalty for Katniss makes me want to give Katniss a shake for her to realize Peeta is the one for her.
This far-out world that Suzanne created was just wicked. But I need to really say this, I hate President Snow so much, he's no.1 on my sh*t list now, Voldemort went down to no.2 hahaha.
So for those who have not gotten around this series yet, you should start now before it comes out in the movie next year. Really really need to read the 3rd installment soon. Highly recommended.
