Catching Fire - Suzanne  Collins The Hunger Games was shocking, exciting, and left me feeling bad for having liked it. Catching Fire cannot duplicate those effects. However, here the excitement is more subdued, and the shock factor is gone. I'll still admit to a good story, at least for a while...

This is a pretty typical middle-book of a trilogy where the first third rewinds where we are, the middle continues the story, and then just as the story gets interesting, you realize you are just being set up for the cliff-hanger lead-in to the final book.

I was told I had to read this book to help understand where the story arc was going. I will agree, but now that I have seen, I am not sure I need to bother reading the conclusion.
