Catching Fire

Okay, I will admit it. The day after I finished The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, I went to Walmart and bought the sequel, Catching Fire (the only copy on the shelf... my friend Jamie was mad at me), put it on the counter as a reward for making pear jam and cleaning up the kitchen, pureed, mixed, poured, froze, cleaned like mad, then dove in. Twelve hours of reading later (seriously, sauteing the zucchini as I read), I was done.  And, again, I am anxious for the third and final story, expecting big, but perhaps unintended things from Katniss, and a little more bucking up from Peeta. I thought he was a little soft in this one, but that is just my opinion. Gale, time to step up.
My son is reading Hunger now, and shakes his head at how good it is.
It's great to find an exciting book... and a series to go with it.

After I saw you refer to Hunger Games the first time I looked at it on Amazon and thought it was an awful sounding premise for a book. Everyone that has ever mentioned it to me loved it though so I read it over the weekend. It was very good, I have to admit. It takes some good writing to turn an idea like that into a great book! I'm on the prowl for number two now too.
