So far, this book is certainly not living up to the hype. It's a great story concept, but the execution is a little disappointing, to say the least. I was slightly annoyed with Katnis from time to time with her complaints about two boys being in love with her. Pick one already, for crying out loud.
For a long while, the story was dragging along. It seemed as if nothing much was occuring for almost a half of the book, and then they are told they are going back into the game, and slowly, it starts to pick up. I think what the book is missing a lot of is suspense and that gripping tension that has you holding onto your seat.
If you haven't finished the first book, The Hunger Games, go run to the library immediately before reading the rest of this review.
So you've survived the first games have you? Are you sure you're ready for more? Katniss Everdeen sure isn't. As she tries to settle into her new life as a Games victor, she wonders more about her feelings for Peeta and how the Capitol could ruin her life and everyone else she cares for. A shocking surprise jolts the new winner as a certain president pays her new home a visit and other unwanted visitors arrive. Can Katniss fight? Or should she run? Will she even have the option?
