Katniss and Peeta have made it home, but not all comes up smelling like roses. Peeta has given Katniss distance, Gale is unsure what is real or fake. As they go through their victory tour, dissent in the Capitol is visible. Katniss has found that her actions have rung throughout the districts, even though her actions were her own personal ones and for her own personal reasons. Soon Katniss and Peeta find themselves going into the games once again. This is not something they prepared for, but as a reader, I could feel it comng. The President is trying to quell the districts into submission. Peeta drops a bombshell, again, during his interview. The President has been blindsided, again. Who will survive the games? Who is an ally and who is in the dark? Can they trust the other players or should they withdraw any alliances and go off on their own? As the clock ticks away, choice are made and the dome of prison is fragmented into a million pieces.I just can't get over the writing. Suzanne Collins puts you right there with Katniss. You feel her hopes, defeats, pain and love as you do with the other characters. You see through Katniss' eyes. I think this is what really brings these books together. When you're not reading, you're wondering what's going on. You're trying to figure out how it's going to end, who is working with who, and why.
