I'm surprising myself by giving the second in a series of books a 5 when I think I gave the first one in the set a 4.

I found the first in the Hunger Games series to be a tad predictable and I wasn't really sure how I felt about the protagonist. I think Katniss is more real in the second book and there were moments that actually surprise me in the second volume. I found myself entranced even if there were a few sections that seemed a bit over the top. Then again, I'm speaking of a post-apocalyptic series of novels where children have to go to battle each other as tributes so . . .

I've seen some pretty varied ratings on the 3rd book in the trilogy, but I'll definitely read it. I'll probably have to wait until March when I can borrow again from the Kindle Lending Library. 30 days and only one book? That's like being a kid and being only allowed to take two books out from the library.

But, hey, it is free.

Telly McGaha I did not like it as much as the first one. Still have to read the third and final one...

I liked it, but I don't think I'm in love with it as much as everyone else. That being said, I think I'm interested enough to at least read the second book in the series just to see what the author does with the characters after the games.
