Book Review: “Catching Fire” by Suzanne Collins

Catching fire

Genre: Fantasy

2 Watertowers(The Hunger Games Almost Redone)

*************Spoiler Alert…just so you know***************

The first 200, or so, pages were really good.  After that we have to suffer through another Hunger Games (under a different name, and this time, with the old winners). Yes it had some surprising moments that lend themselves to the overall goal.  But overall, not fun (I skimmed the last 100 pages).  I wish the book would have continued on the path taken in the first 200 pages…..

I understand why it was done (now that I have finished the book), but, I would have preferred a new direction to get to the finale which has promise for book 3.

I am only looking forward to the movie because I heard they went to Hawaii to film the games.

UPDATE:  The movie is TERRIFIC.
