@TheWholeDamnShow: The cave is Katniss' and Peeta's hideout, seeing as Peeta is wounded and can't walk. The Dress made of Fire was very cheesy, but it didn't bother me as much as some of the excessive description of clothing in the second book (I blame that on the lack of plot that happens throughout most of Book #2). Besides, it's a sort of special-effects-show thing where the tributes show off the glory and flashiness of their homes to people who have never seen them and never will. And if you're from the shown-off district, you see the face of the person you know, all flashy and you're proud of them. From a propaganda-standpoint, it's actually really effective. So I could see that happening and looking pretty good at that as well.
Book #2 is a bit rubbish, but you'll need to read it to understand the third book, which kicks ass again. The first one still is the best, but the ending has quite some surprising elements in it and it doesn't end at all like you'd think.
