ToryB's Catching Fire review
I loved this book. I think it's better than the first. Very imaginative. I thought I was getting pretty good at predicting plots but this one was very surprising. Although, quite a bit longer than the first, it is compelling nonetheless. These books are not just for teenagers. I'm a man in his 40's and I love them.

A Must Read Trilogy
A fantastic read, for all ages. I've read the three books several times, and now I purchased the CD's, which I can listen to while I complete household chores.

Looking for Part 3 Now
I don't normally like trilogies or follow-on books and movies but this was very well done. I'm waiting for part 3.

Read and enjoyed it.
The third book is a must read after reading the first two; however, it's not as engaging and a little harder to get through.
