Catching Fire

This has taken me quite a while to get around to this book.  That was completely unintentional.  My wife has been bugging me for quite some time to read it so we could discuss the book.  She read both books in the series after some prodding by myself.  She really enjoyed the books.  A few more people have also read the books at our recommendation.

I took a couple days this last week out of my vacation to read this book.  I like a book when the story is captivating and I find it difficult to put the book down because I want to know what is going to happen.  Some aspects of the book were predictable – only because hints were given early in the book that lead to a conclusion about the hint.  The story was well developed and kept me anticipating.

At this very moment I still find myself anticipating and wanting for more in the story.  The next book should be coming out this fall and I will be reading it!!

In continuing tradition, I rate this book with an A-.
