Catching Fire

Catching Fire - Suzanne  Collins My friend told me not to read this book because it would make my IQ drop, and after finishing it, I kind of agree with her.

I think Collins threw in a greater variety of sentence structures compared to The Hunger Games, which was nice, but the book just seemed too short. There were many scenes that made me I scratch my head and think This makes no logical sense. It felt like everything was underdeveloped and in a rush. I couldn't enjoy the book as much as I thought I would. I read through it very quickly, but when I finished I couldn't believe that was the end. It lacked a lot, I think. I think the ideas are good, but how the ideas were written didn't work for me. There wasn't enough substance to make me believe in the story.

Maybe things were underdeveloped on purpose because we were stuck in Katniss's head, and lots of secrets were kept from her.

Good news: I didn't want Katniss murdered this time, so I guess that's an improvement from The Hunger Games.
