Yes, this book was easily as exciting as the first and I raced through it so quickly that I know I missed some of the finer points.
Still I think I would have preferred a little less time in the Games themselves and a little more time spent on the background politics and personalities as the districts begin to break down. I also wanted to have some transitional scenes at the beginning of the novel with Katniss reuniting with her family and Gale rather than having it kind of glossed over to jump start the action.
Still, Collins knows how to make grand political and searingly personal statements in her writing and is very good at ending a book just at the place where it can't possibly end

So is there a third book after catching fire because it ended so weird and i want to know for sure if peeta is alive or not i hope he is

Hi Chelsie-
Yes! The 3rd book is scheduled to come out in August. I hope that Peeta is alive, too! I'd love to hear what you thought about the ending of Catching Fire!
