About the book:
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.(more)

My Review: 2 stars

Everything was quite predictable to be honest though it was nice to read the continuation of it all.I felt how much pressure Katniss was bearing, all those pretentious star-crossed lovers effect took its toll which need more convincing power,relationship fallen and shaken,safety,security,family threathened and all that oh my goodness!

I like the arena this time it's a bit confusing at first but I got a hang of it.The Quarter Quell this time around is too much of a torture OVERKILL that's one way to put it for it extinguished the hope that's left or is it? There are some tear jerker parts for me it's always when somebody else's died for a cause like to save another tribute/others, for the greater good,good people with good heart and intentions.I love how they utilized the mockingjay either as a pin or whatever as a sign of which side you're on or either just to blend in to fashion statement at the Capitol and of course the watch of this year's Quarter Quell Gamemaker is to die for! it's so beautiful I wonder where I could get and avail one.

The ending was so much of a cliff hanger I hope book III is action pack.
