“Catching Fire” by Suzanne Collins.  The Second Book of THE HUNGER GAMES.

Our friend Abigail sent us all three books of The Hunger Games, which I had heard of but quickly dismissed as another pop-culture fad of entertainment.  My mom read the trilogy and loved it.  Abigail loved it.  There was a movie coming out.  Ugh.  The last thing I wanted to do was read these books.

Deana read the first one rather quickly, and after listening to her description of the story I thought I could jump in and plow through these and enjoy myself.  It might also make me a little more culturally plugged in, which is helpful for a father of two young people.

I enjoyed the first two books, and am slowly getting into the third and final book (newborn hours don’t help the situation).  In the end, I’m glad I’m reading the trilogy.

Abigail does not want books two and three back, so I’m going to pass them along.  Let me know if you are interested.
