9/10





Wow! This book had me hooked from the start and took my breath away several times. This is one of those rare books I will never forget and can only describe as being brilliant!

It definitely surpasses the previous book. I never once hoped for something else to happen and I loved all the great surprises! It was gripping, thrilling and has truly fantastic characters!

Suzanne Collins is a visionary!

I cannot wait to read Mockingjay!

"We star-crossed lovers of District 12, who suffered so much and enjoyed so little the rewards of our victory, do not seek our fans' favor, grace them with our smiles, or catch their kisses. We are unforgiving.
And I love it. Getting to be myself at last." 
 
SPOILERS:
 
"But I have to confess, I'm glad you two had at least a few months of happiness together."
I'm not glad," says Peeta. "I wish we had waited until the whole thing was done officially."
This takes even Caesar aback. "Surely even a brief time is better than no time?"
Maybe I'd think that, too, Caesar," says Peeta bitterly, "If it weren't for the baby."
