With Christmas and everything going on I hardly read in December. I started this books about a week ago but was only reading a chapter or so a day, as I wasn’t really in a reading mood. It wasn’t until I sat down and just read that I really started to enjoy Catching Fire!
It started out a bit slow (but that was mostly because I wasn’t reading consistently and was only reading a bit here and there) but in no time your back into the swing of things and your hooked!
I’ll say it again, this book, this series, it’s beyond clever! I am in awe of the author!
At first I thought Catching Fire was good but not as good as good as the first, but as I moved further into the story it only get better!
The characters return and are better than ever! On top of that you are introduced to a whole new bunch!
Because this book is awesome and I didn’t want to stop reading it, yet I also wanted to go on the treadmill, I decided to do both at once: read while walking on the machine. Let’s just say, not a good idea! Here’s what happened: I was reading and something out of the blue happened that shocked me. So here’s a future warning: No matter how good the book is, don’t operate exercise equipment at the same time… it could be deadly.
What a way to end the book! Those last and final, chilling words! Seriously, luckily I have the next book at home, otherwise I wouldn’t be a happy camper!
Overall, I loved this book and was surprised at how well the sequel turned out!
