Catching Fire (Hunger Games, Book 2)

Catching Fire  - Suzanne  Collins Enjoyed it more than the first one. It helped that there's pretty much no mention of weapons or combat for the first two thirds-ish of the book. Of course, then it's back to arrow "sheaths" and good lord, I hope she didn't mean that bow and arrows were made out of actual GOLD because that would be really stupid. But overall that last bit was mercifully brief. And the book had some actual teeth this time, rather than just a bunch of random, nameless, faceless characters being killed off way off yonder while our heroine scratches around in the underbrush.Just sayin'.
