Still Hungry

Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well. Of course she won the games, and managed to set a first ever record of having two winners, so the evil president hates her and wants her dead and all of that, causing her to fake a relationship that will turn into a real relationship (with the wrong guy), and a rebellion will start and I now know how the rest of the series will go but still am somehow in suspense.

More cautions keep coming the longer I keep reading: there is a sexual overtone to the books that is disquieting. The girl is seventeen and keeps being interested in first the one guy, then the other, but never is anything remotely akin to marriage even referenced, which is aggravating. Also, the violence is downright disturbing. So, again, not kids books.
