    Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

    "Not as good as the first book."
    Overall

    As with many trilogies, the second book just doesn't live up to the expectations set by the first. This is not a bad book, by any means, but it could certainly have been better. The pace was a bit slow at times, and the main character seemed to lack depth in this book which made it difficult for me to connect with the main character in this book.

    Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she's made it out of the bloody arena live, she's still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge....

    "Very Disappointing"
    Overall

    I had high hopes for this book, but in the end I feel like this book should have been combined with the second, and both books would have been greatly improved. The pace was too slow, and the apathetic attitude of the main character becomes tiresome very quickly. I was tempted to fast-forward through sections of this book. The plot was also very weak, particularly near the end of the book. If I had it to do over again, I would have only listened to the first book in the series.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Teddy says: "The Book Deserves The Hype"
    "Excellent Book"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit. The story is very interesting, and keeps your attention throughout book, but not at the level of my absolute favorite books, so not quite a 5 star rating. The narrator does a good job, but there are times that she doesn't get the characters quite right. All-in-all, well worth the credit, and I highly recommend this book.
