I indulged this weekend. Rather, I was trapped by this book. Somehow my hands were chained to the hardcover binding and flipping pages madly. I simply couldn’t put it down.
So I ignored all other life around me and barricaded myself in my office to read Suzanne Collin’s gripping sequel to The Hunger Games (see my previous post).
If The Hunger Games was one of the best books I’ve ever read, I’m not sure how to classify Catching Fire. It surpassed the high standard set by its predecessor, digging deeper into the characters and setting. In this book, nothing is exactly how it seems, and you are left breathlessly waiting for more.
My only regret – having to wait until 2010 for the third book to come out. How can I possibly wait that long!?
