I thought this had great potential at the start. Unfortunately the romance element was silly and childish, the story line was dull and we just didn't get anywhere! I loved the idea of the flawed theme and the branding etc but I was wanting real uproar, rebellion, something! Another one bites the dust.

The book was a little slow to get into but just helped you get to know the characters. As the story went on, the pace picked up and the story keeps you hooked! Loved the way it was written and the narrators did a great job. Definitely worth a listen.

A great finish as Katniss grows as a person and the story grows into something bigger than the games. It's an adrenaline pumping, nerve wracking, heart wrenching journey that you take with katniss, Peeta and all the rest
