really liked it

I loved the continuity of the book it went straight back into the story as if it hadn’t ended. This book seemed to be moving the plot story from just the life of Katniss to what is going on a national level.
I’m happy about the character development of the characters from the capitol. They seemed to have developed some empathy.
Katniss in this book seems very hard on herself and confused not really seeing the larger picture until it is explained to her by haymitch. She feels a like she a little bit lost and indecisive.
Peeta wasn’t very memorable for me in the book he seems a little bland for most the story. There is one part where he does demonstrate a deep devotion for Katniss in a speech where he tries to convince her that she should be the one to live. The cynical among us could say the speech shows us that he doesn’t value himself very highly.
Overall it is a very strong continuation of the story. I would definitely recommend this to any dystopian YA fans.
