The first half of this book was a little slow moving compared to its predecessor, but the second half was every bit as action-packed as you could hope for. There's a bit much of Katniss's teen angst coming through for my taste. Totally realistic, for sure, but also makes the read a little more frustrating.
Great page turner. Ends on a serious cliff-hanger. Going to read the third and final book in this series for sure.
