Review: This book was a great attachment to the 1st book in the series. The writing is fairly easy to read yet written extremely well. The detail of the surroundings is amazing. Suzzane Collins does a great job explaining whats going through Katniss's head, her survival skills, her love for Peeta and her confusion of whats going on around her. She develops the charchters even more then in the first book. Specifically Prim and Gale who were rarely seen in the first book. I would recommend this book for anybody that enjoyed the first book and was waiting for more about thee world of Panem and Katniss Everdeen.
