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.
