PRE- Catching Fire editorial

Catching Fire (The Pre-Review)


In preparation for the much anticipated “Catching Fire”, I have been rereading the novel.  I have avoided seeing too many of the previews until right before seeing “Thor: the Dark World”.  My breath caught in my throat when I saw Katniss Everdeen on screen once again.  Almost immediately I began to worry that it was going to let me down.  How could it possibly live up to what I felt while reading the books?  Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed the first film but with this one I am hoping for more.  We need more depth in character relationships (especially for those who have not read the novels).   With the addition of Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Plutarch Heavensbee) to the already stellar cast I’m optimistic that “Catching Fire” will do just that.

I am attempting to stay away from all the reviews out there already (though I keep hearing most of them are positive).  I want to go in fresh and come out like I did from “Hunger Games” utterly emotionally destroyed with growing defiance….two days to go!
