Our customer reviews

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.show more
