Book Review: Catching Fire


I know, you’re probably shocked I read Catching Fire, the second book in the Hunger Games series, after my scathing review of the first book. But here’s the deal – my issue with the first book was that it was entirely about kids killing other kids for the entertainment of adults. I mean, who wouldn’t be disturbed by that?

The second book, however, was not all about that. Sure, there was a little bit of kids killing kids, but (and I won’t give away the ending), it was for a good cause. As much as I struggled to finish the first book, I could not put this book down – in fact, I read the first 50 pages on Thursday and then the rest of the book in its entirety on Friday night after work. It was THAT good – and a really quick read.

So I feel like Cheryl has been vindicated. She told me I would like the second book better than the first, and she was absolutely right. Well played, friend.

  1. It’s like you read my mind. I saw the post title and thought “now why did she do that? She didn’t like the first” but am oh so pleased you gave it a shot and am so glad you liked it. :)
