Suzanne Collins continues the amazing story of Katniss Everdeen in the phenomenal Hunger Games trilogy. 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.

This book almost had me clawing my eyes out, raking my nails over my face and drawing my own blood in frustration, anger, disbelief, grief, amazement and a dozen other emotions I have no name for. I'm not even aware that I'm capable of feeling these mixed emotions all at once. It's a perfect follow-up to The Hunger Games and it did a really good job of keeping me on the edge of my seat until Mockingjay. This is beyond good, beyond awesome. But oh, Cinna.. Kind and gentle Cinna.. I don't think I could ever get over him just as I'll never get over Rue.
The moment Plutarch showed Katniss his watch with the image of the mockingjay on it, I was sure he was on Katniss's side. But he rubs on me the wrong way and I can't help but distrust him. The opposite can be said about Finnick Odair, though. At first I was suspicious of him. But well, I'm glad he turns out to be a friend. It's just so sad about what happened to Mags and Wiress. They're victors and yet the Games made them into pawns. Expendable. But for me, they turned from victors of the Games into real heroes. Immortalized heroes that even the Capitol won't be able to take away from the people.
Suzanne Collins amazed me again with the second book of The Hunger Games trilogy. The writing is superb as usual, the action is nerve-wracking and the world-building is realistically creative. A worthy sequel to The Hunger Games, this is one book you wouldn't want to miss out.

Is the cover the orange one? meaning is it the one which is shown in the book details? because I have book 1 and it's the same edition of the cover shown above and I'd hate to ruin the set if it isn't.
