It has been a long time since I have connected with a heroine the way I related to Katniss. Her struggles in both the battle dome and with her emotions makes her all the more real. The book has a Battle Royale fight to the death plot despite trying to make connections between the two in the beginning I quickly stopped when I realized this book was an entirely different beast.
If you are thinking about reading I highly encourage you to do so! It is well worth your time.
