Catching Fire!

WARNING if you haven't read the book (or seen the movie) there are some spoilers! 

Last night I went with my writing club (which I will post about later) to see Catching Fire. It's been a while since I've read the book, but to the best of my memory, they did the story justice. And - that cliffhanger ending, just like in the book. Gah.

The movie made me cry where the book couldn't. When Katniss and Peeta are on their tour, and they talk to the families Rue and Thresh - I couldn't help it. It was so sad.

So because I knew the story, having read the books, I was able to notice a bunch of little things that weren't obvious that pointed to everyone (except Katniss of course) knowing the save-Katniss-District-13-etc. plan. It was pretty cool to look for. 

One thing that amazed me was how Beetee's glasses stayed intact THROUGH EVERYTHING. He must have some sort of special glasses. I never saw him wipe them, or anything. I WANT THOSE GLASSES.

In short: it was a good movie, it was close to the book, the actors were fantastic. There were a couple of Finnick-fan-girls in front of us, and when he first came on the screen, one of them shouted, "Woo! Finnick!" When he said, "Want a sugar cube," I heard her go, "Aahhh..." :-P
Looking forward to Mockingjay!

Have you seen Catching Fire? What did you think?



  1. Yay!! Those fan girls in front of us were funny :P The cliffhanger ending was the worst...

    1. YES we have to get together to watch Mockingjay!

    2. Absolutely! We'll have to wait a whole year for it, but still :) In the meantime, I'm going to go re-read Mockingjay so I'm not left with such a terrible cliffhanger.
