Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. (from Goodreads)
For once, I was able to get a book on the day it was released AND read it from cover to cover. I was terrified someone was going to spoil it for me, so I will be very careful not to spoil it for anyone myself.
I knew going in that this book could not have a happy ending for everyone and it doesn’t. However, it does have a satisfactory ending. All the loose ends are tied up and nothing is left hanging for an additional book.
There is one thing that happens that I see the need for in the plot development, but I totally hated. In another scene, something happens that I was hoping for. I actually stopped reading long enough to shout “yes!” when I got to that part. That, however, was the only time I was able to stop reading until I finished the entire book.
This is a series that I would like to read from beginning to ending without interruption. It will be a long time before I get Katniss, Peeta, and Gale out of my mind.
