The unnecessary second volume,
This review is from: Catching Fire (Hunger Games, Book 2) (Paperback)Classic formula for a trilogy. Rip out the last 30-50 pages of a novel, add a short inconclusive chapter, and then go for a trilogy or a series.
This book contains absolutely nothing that could not have been completed in two chapters.
As a piece of writing, apart from plagiarising the first volume for most of its length, it's pretty much as competent, but the lack of almost anything new, coupled with the inevitable absense of suspense due to the first person narration, means that this is, frankly, very weak, and far too long for its content.
Hopefully vol 3 will add something more.
