Book Review: Catching Fire

Half way through the book I literally exclaimed "I love this freaking book!" And I do.

This book is the second in the 3-part Hunger Games series.  Just like the first, we see hunger, famine, death, class warfare, and romance.  But this book has a new theme: revolution.  As a sociologist (I'ma keep saying it until y'all believe it) this book draws on the themes of the discontent and subsequent organization of the underclass.  Did I just compare the Hunger Games to The Pedagogy of the Oppressed?  Why yes, I did.

Next Up: Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain
