Age Recommendation: -
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
This book was really good, I thought that the storyline was very entertaining and it kept me interested the whole way through, I didn’t want to put it down. I did find this book to be a little confusing with all the other tributes we were introduced to in the book, and also the storyline towards the end of the book did confuse me a bit. But in saying that this book made me love Katness and Peeta’s characters even more. There were also a lot of unexpected things that happened in the book especially the last few pages which I was not expecting at all. Overall this book was really entertaining and was a great continuation on from the first book and I am really looking forward to reading the third and last book “Catching Fire”.
