I couldn't stop reading this one until I got to the end. I refused to let my lunch be over until I inhaled the rest of the book along with my tacos.
The action was much more intense than the first book and also much smarter. I liked that the tale is told from Katniss' perspective, and so as a reader following along, I had no idea how the rest of the story would unfold or what was happening behind the scenes until it was boom, dropped right in front of my face, kind of like a sponsors parachute.
I loved how this book ended and I need to get my hands on the third installment to see what's going to happen next and how this wonderful trilogy will end.
Suzanne Collins is a remarkable author and I hope she goes on to write more books that are just as good, if not better, than this series.
