If you enjoy mind bending, heart breaking, devious and underhanded outright evil, this may be the book for you. If not… well, then it’s not.
I will say that Suzanne’s writing was stellar in this book, just as it was in the remainder of the Hunger Games series.
It lured me in with a somewhat false sense of security
However, I will NEVER understand why authors take the time to make us fall in love with a group of characters… who they then torture and kill off one by one… and then they expect us to actually enjoy a back-story for the villain who is responsible for all of that torture and death.
If you do not have a big, soft, open heart – and you are not someone who actually wants to throw a book across the room when something horrific happens to a favorite character of yours in said book, you might actually enjoy this book.
If you are someone who obsessively must read every book that is even loosely related to a beloved series, read this book, but be forewarned. Snow is evil. Really. Just go in knowing that. I don’t consider that a spoiler. We all knew that years ago.
I am just glad that I didn’t buy the book. I borrowed it from the library. I don’t want this book in my collection. I don’t want this book in my house. If I could figure out how to get it off my borrow history, I would.
