105 Ways to Give a Book

Catching Fire

Catching FireI’ve spent the last few hours with this book, but it’s too late for me to write anything and still be careful to not give away any part of it. So, before I get some much needed rest, here’s a quick reaction to Catching Fire from my seventh grader, that I will now echo.

While she was reading and I was on another book, I asked her a question as she was on the last pages. She shushed me. I laughed. A few minutes later she closed the book and uttered the following:
Whoa. That got freakin’ awesome. The first part was boring, then about three-fifths in it gets exciting, but the last twenty pages are so exciting and amazingly... whoa.
Personally, I wouldn’t call the first part boring, but maybe a bit slow. I agree with the rest, but especially the whoa.

I picked up this book at our 48 Hour Shopping spree yesterday. It is my goal for the day. Hoping to go out on the patio and not be bothered for a few hours. We'll see!

Me too! I was like, closing one eye as I read your review. On one hand, I want to know even the smallest thing about Catching Fire. Oh the other hand, I want to read it for myself.

Decisions, decisions.
