Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12.
I am still in tears. I held it together until the last 10 pages or so and then I just lost it. This is how I know a book affects me deeply… I lose all sense of time and place and I have a visceral reaction. To this I was anger with Katniss, happy with Katniss, and then sad with Katniss. I am in turmoil over the book. That’s not to say I didn’t love, because I absolutely did. It’s just that I am sad about the consequences of actions in the book and that it then ended. So sad. This series will not be leaving my library. I am definitely going to keep this and reread it (sooner rather than later). And btw, I’m still and forever will be Team Peeta.
