Catching Fire

Catching Fire - Suzanne  Collins Thanks to the first few 1 star reviewers on Amazon - I no longer have to keep reading this book. Why can't people think about adding a spoiler alert before posting? Totally ruined what was a mediocre addition to this trilogy.

I had been having problems recreating the excitement I felt for the first two books and decided to see if others had the same thoughts I did. I got more than I bargained for.

I kept reading anyway thinking that these reviewers had it wrong...but they are correct. The author used this book for some other agenda other than to merely finish off the trilogy to anyone satisfaction. Granted, someone was always going to lose in the end...but so many?
Truly mediocre like I said; no growth for any of the main characters, too much razzle dazzle, Katniss just seems to be a MarySue in this book. Too much tugging on heart-strings instead of good solid writing and story telling.
