I pretty much wish I didn't read this book. I think the first Hunger Games could have stood on it's own. I can't quite put my finger on why I didn't like this one. I think it had to do with the writing, story telling and lack of character development. I also think that parts that could have just been summarized and skipped past were drug out way too long, and parts that had the most meaning and could have went into more detail were just skimmed over. This just wasn't a good book. At all.
