Still really intense and awesome, but I was left just a little less excited about it all by the time I'd finished. I think it may have been because I wasn't anticipating them having to go through the Games again, and was really eager to see how the rebellion would begin, at least as Katniss experiences it. But that's apparently the third book.
But it was a really enjoyable read. Great characters, great writing, and yes, an amazing plot, all brilliantly put together.
