- Catching Fire
|08.30.11|| I wasn't intending on reading this series until Bob at work mentioned that it was a lot like The Running Man. I'm a real sucker for this genre... Running Man, The Long Walk, Battle Royale... Love it. So here I am.
This really flew by. Thanks to the survival bent and the deathsport driving each chapter, I could hardly put it down. I'm definitely curious if I'll enjoy the next two books as much without the Games themselves to interest me, but we'll see. I can also tell from the end that there might be a young adult love triangle that will be hard for me to take but again, we'll see. This book I'm kind of surprised is categorized as Young Adult considering the amount of brutality on display. Kids today...
Good book. On to the next one.|
