Go read Catching Fire, the sequel to the Hunger Games, right now. You asked me to give you my recommendation. There it is. It’s that good.
And everyone else who wants a friggin’ fantastic social commentary, super real characters with understandable motivations and problems, and even better–tension between them (Gale versus Peeta! Agh! I don’t know who I like better!), an amazingly built post-apocalyptic, dystopic world… well, you better as heck pick up the first two books in them, too.
Seriously, I finished Catching Fire and immediately wanted to start over and read the whole thing again. That good.
(I didn’t reread it, because I have six other books in my TBR pile. Am now reading the Forest of Hands and Teeth.)
