Where do I even start with this book?! Unlike the first part where watching the movies first had an impact on my reading experience this one still managed to give me goosebumps everytime during a significant or even a trivial scene. At first I thought 472 pages were a lot to describe the plot and that the story would be stretched a lot like the 1/3 part of the 1st book. But to my surprise it wasn't. I felt everything was perfectly paced. Even though almost the first half of the book describes everything happening BEFORE the main plot announcement somehow it still doesn't get boring. There are so many things happening, from Katniss's relationship with Gale, her mum, Haymitch, Peeta, President Snow, the wedding, uprisings in other districts, the problems faced by her own district that it's impossible to get bored.

I loveed how all the characters had something unique to offer to the plot and none of them carried a cliché personality. With that said I want to talk about Haymitch. I fell in love with him...more like a pitiful one. As you read you realize that all these nightmares Katniss and Peeta have been having since a year, Haymitch have been having them since 25 years but because of the way he deals with them (alcohol) nobody takes his personality that seriously. In the book they also describe the Games Haymitch had won. The 25th. A Quarter Quell. With double the amount of tributes. He's strong, he's focused, he's ambitious but the games overshadow it everytime with its horrors😢 If they ever made a movie or wrote a book about Haymitch's younger self. The one that won the games. I wouldn't be surprised if I instantly fall for him.
