Es muy repetitivo. La parte romántica ya me molestaba un poco en la primera, pero ahora se hacía mucho peor. Las situaciones y motivos de los personajes son realmente simples y tontos. Las situaciones tramposas son demasiado evidentes. ( )

We continue to follow Katniss & Peeta onto the 75th Hunger Games, and it is as fun and fast paced as the first book. ( )

Great continuation of The Hunger Games. I felt the book was on par with the first book. Might have even ranked higher. If you didn't read the first book then you shouldn't take on this one. This one tended to follow up where the other book left off. ( )

great. even better than the hunger games -- a bit more political intrigue. greater number of interesting characters. interesting set up for the games. some shocker plot developments. in other moods, might give it a 5, but trying to limit those. ( )

I didn't love it as much as the first, but part of that is the fact that I had higher expectations.

I get annoyed with Katniss and how clueless she is, although I think it's a legitimate part of her character, and not necessarily poor writing. I think it would have been much more exciting to follow someone who was involved with the uprisings, instead of Katniss, who was clueless until the end. I mean, did she really not understand Plutarch Heavensbee (lord, what a name) at the party with the pocketwatch and the [b:mockingjay|7260188|Mockingjay (Hunger Games, #3)|Suzanne Collins|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1282388315s/7260188.jpg|8812783]? I was disappointed in the plot twist that put them back in the arena, because it seems like a ploy to recapture the suspense of the first book, and just led to more bloodbath, but I didn't care about those characters, and I already know how evil the Capitol is, so why have that whole sequence in the arena? Why not just move on to the rebellions? I think there was enough fuel for it.

I wonder how Katniss is going to fake the rest of her pregnancy. Or are they going to say she lost her baby in the arena? Now are we in for a big rescue of Peeta?

I think I have to declare a camp: Peeta or Gale. I feel like Gale should understand that Katniss's life is not her own anymore, and she is not free to make her own choices. And she could do a lot worse than Peeta, and I'm not convinced that she doesn't love him. I haven't really seen enough of Gale and Katniss together to want to fight for them. I believe that they have a close and special relationship, but I think what Peeta and she have gone through in the arena surpasses that. I will have to read the boarda and chat groups to see if I've missed anything important.

I am very intrigued by the world that Collins has created. It's a great dystopic vision. I've very curious about district 13. I like trying to figure out where the districts are in relation to the real USA. Is District 13 California? Alaska? Hawaii? Some how I doubt it's Maine or Florida. Texas? ( )

Collins has done that rare thing. She has written a sequel that improves upon the first book. As a reader, I felt excited and even hopeful: could it be that this series and its characters were actually going somewhere?
 
The author describes her wearing a series of Cher-worthy costumes in which she confronts poisonous mists, deranged monkeys, and a flock of ''candy pink'' birds equipped with long beaks used to skewer human necks. Great stuff, this. Unfortunately, such startling apparitions too quickly appear and disappear, baubles randomly affixed to a story that's been stretched to gossamer thinness.

Book description
SPARKS ARE IGNITING.
FLAMES ARE SPREADING.
AND THE CAPITOL WANTS REVENGE.


Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol — a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
Haiku summary
Katniss and Peeta
fight the odds once again, but
rebellion's afoot.
