My sister loaned this to me, thinking I would really like it. She knows me pretty well, considering I could hardly put it down.I am usually not fond of much of anything that has romance driving the plot, but in this case, it made the plot that much more interesting. It wasn't the usual star-crossed lovers scenario that I typically see in literature, but rather a more realistic relationship of a guy who wants to give a girl everything, but she is unsure how she really feels about him while also possibly having feelings for a guy who may or may not have feelings for her.I am really excited to read the next book in the series because an author's writing tends to improve with each successive book they write. However, I am not sure how she is going to keep the level of excitement, because the games are over. Perhaps a rebellion occurs, or Katniss has to go on the run. Either way, I'm intrigued.
