So like a while back I was all, 'OMG OMG READ THE HUNGER GAMES, YO!'
If you have not done so, STOP READING THIS RIGHT NOW AND GO READ IT, or else I'ma slap ya.
If you HAVE read it, then you can read this, because Catching Fire is the SEQUEL.
'Cause you know, this is a trilogy, and the third one, Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games) comes out August 24th in the US, just in time for Angela's birthday, but sorry Ange, it comes out in September in the UK.
Anyway, this one is comparable to the first one when it comes to plotting, excitement, characterization, joy of reading, orgasmic delight, killing people, and so on.
So if you've finished The Hunger Games, you know that Katniss, in all her badassery, comes out alive, but refused to kill Peeta and he refused to kill her, and so they got to go home.
But the Capital was Pissed Off.
And they said, 'we cannot let them live. they are bad children who must be beaten. or preferrably killed. and so on.'
So they come up with this brilliant plan to make all the districts send two winners BACK TO THE GAMES. Meaning, 'oh Katniss and Peeta, you are so going to have to kill each other now OR ELSE.'
Or else means, of course, some other badass will kill you, muahahaha.
But remember District 13? The one they say was totally obliterated after their little uprising?
Well . . . . there's something going on there.
Not sayin' what.
I mean, you probably won't really know what's up until Mockingjay (The Final Book of The Hunger Games), anyway.
But I have my mockingjay pin, so you know I'm part of the revolution.
