It’s not often that I get to read fiction any more. I may get to read one fiction book a year. Most of my reading is related to what I do: reading and studying the Scriptures, books on church planting, leadership, and preaching. But when I went to see Man of Steel the second time with a group of friends from church, the first trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was shown. After showing my wife the trailer, she insisted that I pick up Catching Fire and start reading. How much did I enjoy it? I finished it about midnight last night and immediately picked up my wife’s copy of Mockingjay. Yeah, it was that good.
I’m excited to see Oscar, Academy Award, and SAG winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman as Plutarch Heavensbee as I believe he’s one of the best actors alive and he’ll make a great addition to an already amazing cast that features Academy Award and Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, brother of Thor (Chris Hemmsworth) and man who seems to have Greek god DNA Liam Hemmsworth, two time Golden Globe winner Donald Sutherland, two time Oscar nominated Woody Harrelson, multi-Prime Time Emmy nominee Elizabeth Banks, and multi-Grammy winner Lenny Kravitz.
Enjoy the trailer and read the books if you have the chance.
*I actually like Josh Hutcherson and Zathura was a cute kids movie. Firehouse Dog on the other hand…
