by Suzanne Collins
Just finished book 2 in The Hunger Games series, Catching Fire. Damn you, Suzanne Collins. Now I have to go buy the third book. In hardback. Because I just can't wait for a library copy to become available.
Didn't know where was left to go after the end of The Hunger Games, things seemed kind of wrapped up. Catching Fire starts kind of slow, and I was afraid it was going to be all politics. But about halfway through events take a twist you won't see coming, and then you're on an exciting ride to the end of the book. Make sure you have plenty of time to finish, because you won't want to put it down. And make sure you have the third book ready to hand, because you will want to start it right away!
(That's one good thing about getting in on this series late, at least I don't have to wait for the author to finish writing the next one before I can read it!)
I know this is a short review, but I can't really discuss the plot without giving away spoilers for those who haven't read it yet. Plus, I don't have time to write more, I have to go get the next book - like, right now, even though the baby's still napping and we're in the middle of a rainstorm.
