From the Publisher
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
"The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge."
And revenge is exactly what the Capitol dished out. I did not expect the story to go as it did. Fabulous, really didn't think that I would be as interested in this book as I was with The Hunger Games. Suzanne Collins has done a fabulous job so far.
I started the third book immediately, looking forward to the movie version of this series.
Definitely a must read. I've recommended these books a few times. My husband read them first and I was hard pressed to get his full undivided attention until he was finished.
Signing off till next time.
