(Finished December 9, 2011)
FINALLY. I borrowed books two and three of The Hunger Games from Kira and devoured them. Book two was pretty good. Book three, you will see, was not so much. Both were predictable.
In book two, Katniss and Peeta are forced to return to a special edition of The Hunger Games. To celebrate the seventy-fifth anniversary of Panem, the past tributes from each district must compete. This means the broken, the strong, the young and the old will all fight one another to the death.
Of course things are complicated because Pres. Snow threatens Katniss. He sees her has a threat against Panem because of her suicide attempt the year before. He’s creepy, that’s all I have to say. And I wouldn’t want to cross him. (The creepy roses…)
To make a long story short, Katniss and Peeta find allies during the games and at the end of the book, they really stick it to the Capitol. And thus begins book three…
