  • I get that you don't want to make your main character some overly-perceptive sort who just stays on top of everything without blinking an eye, but I don't think you want to make her stupid, either
  • I liked the set-up of the new arena in this book, and the interesting dynamic between the contestants
  • I enjoyed the bits of humor thrown in here and there, and I appreciated the emotional struggle as I did with the first book
  • I was initially underwhelmed by the first book, just because everyone else raves about it and it's this huge, baffling sensation, but I found this sequel engrossing enough that it's safe to say I'm at least a fan of the series

      After reading the first book and at least being hooked enough to want to know what happens, I finally got my hands on a copy of the second installment in the Hunger Games series. And I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

      I don’t necessarily feel like the writing itself was better than the first, but for some reason I did really enjoy this one. I felt invested


      in the characters and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next, just because it was a fairly high-stakes story this time around, even more-so than the first.

      I was a little annoyed with the main character’s thought process sometimes, because she just seemed so oblivious to things that the author made obvious to the reader. I get that you don’t want to make your main character some overly-perceptive sort who just stays on top of everything without blinking an eye, but I don’t think you want to make her stupid, either.

      little disjointed to me was the time-frame of events. The time leading up to the time spent in the arena was pretty dragged-out, leaving the actual time in the arena to feel a bit rushed. This might be okay because otherwise it would just be a repeat of the first book, but it felt a little strange to me.

      I’m still not sure if I’m rooting for Gale or

      Peeta, but I find the dynamic going on with each of them interesting and investing. We will see what happens in the next installment! Can’t wait to read it! I was initially underwhelmed by the first book, just because everyone else raves about it and it’s this huge, baffling sensation, but I found this sequel engrossing enough that it’s safe to say I’m at least a fan of the series.
