This book is a love story, now don't get me wrong, I read a lot of love stories, and usually enjoy them, but this one just didn't do it for me. At first I was intrigued about the idea of a diary, and what type of secrets might be revealed, but as it went on I almost put the book down. The diary is for Nicholas, written by his mother Suzanne,which she started before he was even born. In it she describes how she met his father, Matt, how they fell in love, and how he has changed her life.Read More
I was very disappointed with this book, it was almost sad how bad it was, the beginning not as much as the ending, it's as if Collins was given an hour to finish it and this is the best she came up with. She didn't do the justice to her characters, at all. We get to know them, love them and then they leave the book and she doesn't even think twice about them. I would have liked to know a little more about all the characters and not just what Katniss is thinking 24/7. And I'm not even gonna go there, Katniss doesn't seem to grow at all in these books, I thought she was a lot stronger in The Hunger Games, she's supposed to be the rebel thats gonna change the lives of people in Panem, but all she does is complain most of the time, running around in the hospital in a daze. Again months pass in just a few pages and we don't really get the full story. I wish this book had an extra 100 pages or so to tie up the loose ends. The ending is "realistic" but we only see what happens to Katniss and Peeta, no one else is really mentioned, I would have liked to know more. I really thought this book was a big disappointment compared to the first two.
