Re: The Hunger Games

I've been tearing through Catching Fire the last couple days. I though it started slow, but now it's really heating up. In fact, what am I doing here when I could be reading!

I do hope this is a trilogy and not an ongoing series (), though, as I eagerly await book 3.
Yes it is a trilogy.

Spoiler Alert!

Re: The Hunger Games

Just finished Catching Fire about 2 minutes ago. Twice I was ready to be dissapointed in this book, and both times the book took a turn that I did not see coming.

Looked on Amazon and saw that book three is not due until 8/24/10...

Though you can pre-order it right now for $8.50 (normally $17.99).

I hope that's not actually the cover of book three, though. Looks kind of bland. I'm thinking a better color would be gold.

Oh well. If color of the title is the worst we have to worry about, then we're in good shape.

I wonder, though, if we'll get more news of the Hunger Game movie before book 3.

Re: The Hunger Games



I returned to the capital a couple night's ago and cannot put the book down. It's a good sign when you enjoy a book just as much the second time around.

Re: The Hunger Games

That is awesome. Thanks rednax, for posting the name of the third book. I cannot wait, and eagerly anticipate it's release.

Although now I have to wait six months. Now I know why it's called a mockingjay. The cover and title are litterally screaming "Read me!"

I teach seventh grade, and I read aloud to my students every day. As long as you choose the right book, you'd be surprised how much they enjoy it. I'm actually reading Hunger Games to them right now. Today, we finished the chapter immediately prior to the beginning of the games, and they freaked out, not wanting to stop reading.

That's great. We've got to spread the news about a well-written book!

Re: The Hunger Games

Yep. Yesterday was the last day before Spring Break, and we stopped at the part where Katniss is in the tree and Cato takes out his sword and decides to come up after her. The kids were so mad!

Do you plan on reading them Catching Fire as well, the sequel?
