At first, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this as much as I loved The Hunger Games. I was pleasantly surprised that it moved along at just the same quick pace. This is going to be a short review. There’s not a lot I can say about this book besides the fact that I loved it.
Unfortunately, I moved on so quickly to read Mockingjay that I honestly don’t remember a lot besides basic plot and stuff between Katniss and: Peeta, Gale, and Haymitch. The story moves through Katniss’s Victory Tour around all 12 districts, and she is informed that she must quell the possible rebellions. Knowing her skill with speech, she doesn’t do so hot. This leads into the third Quarter Quell — the 75th Hunger Games. I won’t give anything else away, if you haven’t read it already… get to it!
I really enjoyed this book, it was almost as brilliant as the first. It was a quick read, which brought more tension to the Gale/Peeta decision and deepened my liking for Katniss. It also introduced quite a few new interesting faces that brought many new things to the table.
Although it almost ended too quickly for my enjoyment, I was indeed lucky to have started reading the series so late that Mockingjay was out. I do not know what I would have done if I had to wait to finish this series… Anyway, I would absolutely recommend continuing with the series if you liked The Hunger Games.
