Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


For an adult, a lot of what will happen is foreshadowed a little too neatly. But this is not really a book intended for adults!

This really is a retelling of the idea of panem et circenses for modern teens. As I hand this book off to my 18 year old to read, I can't help but think that this is the perfect book for his generation who often feel that everything is futile and that they have neither hope nor power to change what is going on.

They feel, like Katniss Everdeen, that they are: "Used without consent, without knowledge."

Some of the ideas in Catching Fire may serve to kindle the sleeping embers of dissatisfaction.
