  1. I don’t think this will be in the running for the Newbery, because it depends so strongly on the two other books in the trilogy, The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, but it’s still an awesome book. Collins puts you right back in the arena again! I particularly liked the way neither side in the war was actually, totally the “good guy,” and I also liked the way the romantic elements were settled in the end – although I won’t say anything more about that! Just read the book! (But read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire first.)

  2. This book surprised you by being a sequel that was actually just as good as the others in the series. Even though it isn’t Newbery material it was still a good book. AWESOME read! Just couldn’t put it down!

  3. Yes, I agree. It did depend on the first two books a lot, (but I couldn’t really tell because I already them first…) I was HOOKED! It was really good! But, not Newbery. I was kind of disappointed in the end, because all of Katniss problems seemd to suddenly melt away…..

  4. Like the first two books this one was great. Unlike the first two books i was a little bit bored because of all the talking about war and rebellion even though there wasn’t that much action until near the end. And, so sorry to give away part of the ending, but i really DO NOT THINK that Prim should have died. Yeah, it did give the book more feeling but i hated it. I do like books with feeling but the whole thing started when Katniss took Prim’s place at the hunger games so Prim would not die, but she ends up dying anyway which seems pretty hopeless. I guess you are spost to feel hopeless but i did not like it that extreme. I prefer the first two books when there was lots of feeling but not as dramatic.
