Are you mad at me yet? Good! Book clubs are the most fun when everyone stops being polite and starts being angry at everyone else's dumb opinions (in typically articulate, respectful Sparkler fashion, of course).
To kick off today's discussion, here are five controversial claims.
Note that there are SPOILERS GALORE in this post! If you haven't read Catching Fire yet, go away and come back when you're
