Not much to say except that I liked the second book in this series very much. Although, I admit that there was nothing new that author introduced in the dystopian side of the story( by which I was disappointed but I am willing to overlook it).
As like the first part, story is gripping and fast paced. You can't help but love Peeta again. There are Hunger games to entertain the Panem city and as well as you. You can't help to think and feel the same way Katniss does, trusting no one, scared, confused and angry, since you are in her head. I would have liked the story to much greater extent if we could have gotten the glimpses of Peeta's mind(his POV, like the Game of Throne's multiple characters POV), then this would have been pure gold. There were some deaths which did not make any sense to me at all( but its again overlooked).
I should warn if you don't have last part (book) of the series then you should not start this book. The ending of this part will keep you hanging in middle, you will die out anxiety before you can buy the last part.
The second book in the series starts off right where the first book had ended. After 74th hunger games, a rebellion has started in districts against the Capitol. In a special edition of 75th hunger games also called 'Quarter Quell' , Katniss & Peeta are once again put into the arena along with 23 other tributes. This book dwells deep into the character of Katniss Everdeen, the romance angle between her & another tribute from her district Peeta and her childhood friend, Gale. Unlike in the previous hunger games, Katniss has to save two lives with difficult opponents and more brutal challenges. This book also deals with relationships, interdependence and pride. The book is simple, easy to read and thrilling till the end. Watch out for the ending!!
Similar to previous book, the print quality is good. Pages are of great quality & the font size is adequate & very spacious. This is book is definitely recommended to anyone who is interested in Young adult fiction.
Katniss and Peeta won the Hunger Games and made the Capitol look like an idiot, they must pay-back. And the price is one that Katniss could never imagine. In middle of her inner-war, a greater war is knocking at her door.
Also, Very apt for current times.
The story keeps you gripped and makes you alert at each time if you start lagging,very furious.
I'd the feeling like what is going to happen next..read in two days,and didn't even realised the fact that i's on the last page.
Go for it..it'll meet all your expectations plus you have to read for sure if you wanna get ahead with the first book.
Amazingg!! :D and ya good job done by amazon,ver nice quality obviously and fast shipping.
One more thing for amazon, please include a bookmark in every book. Sometimes I prefer flipkart only because of these bookmarks.
