I stayed up until 2 a.m. last night finishing this bad boy. All I have to say is that if you haven't read the Hunger Games series you need to start! I loved this book! I thought it was a lot better than the first book. Usually I am disappointed in the second book because it is not as good but Catching Fire had so many unexpected twists I just couldn't put it down. The last book in the trilogy comes out August 24.
