Concise alliteration and resounding adoration are featured prominently in “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” by Richard Roeper.

The challenge presented to the author is a formidable one, considering the aura preceding it. However, he steps up to the task brilliantly, reaffirming his aptitude at concise literary analysis. No plot twist slips under his radar, no nuance goes unnoticed no matter how minute. He brings them all to the forefront as ardently as a master detective solving an ancient mystery. This is a master craftsman at work, and he is making a masterpiece.

A trait that truly sets Roeper apart from his peers is his unbiased approach. While acknowledging the expectations riding on the source material, he rejects preconceived notions and instead formulates judgement on the subject’s own merits. Thus, the finished product is an impartial, reasonable assessment that is as reverent as it is original—a breath of fresh air in an industry tainted by corruption.

The future of writing just got a little brighter, and Roeper’s newest contribution valiantly redeems the shortcomings of the past. The reader would do themselves a tremendous favor in giving “Hunger Games: …” their attention. It is a worthy effort by an accomplished author, and a fine contribution to decent literature in general.
