I’m going to review this book quickly, so I can read the final one in the trilogy before the end of the day. I can’t handle any more nights of staying up past midnight to finish a book.
This book packs a much stronger emotional punch than the last, because Katniss is being forced to face so many of her fears. And…it’s just so honest. I love her for admitting that she’s afraid to fall in love or have children because she can’t bear the thought of losing any more people who are dear to her.
We live in a broken world. Loved ones die. Marriages fall apart. Friends hurt each other. And when I sit and think about all of these realities, I understand Katniss’s motivation. It would be so much easier to stand back, not get involved, avoid the risk of loving. But, even though Katniss hasn’t yet reached this realization, I trust that she’s going to figure out that the risk is worth it.
(I’ll talk about this more in my next book review. I actually finished another book this morning, which isn’t a part of the Hunger Games trilogy.)
