Hmmm. I'm not really sure what to say about this. It started out pretty slow. I took issue with all the lies that were being told. Katniss still seemed petty and shallow to me. I love Haymitch. I want more of this man. I don't know, this just wasn't as exciting as The Hunger Games. Although the ending was intense and made me really glad I don't have to wait to read the next book, it still only rates three stars for me. Maybe 3.5 stars.
