Big Type

Catching Fire

Some time ago I bought the three books The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins from

When I had finished reading The Hunger Games and opened Catching Fire I got very surprised. The type was BIG. Looking at the cover it actually says Large Print Edition… That was not what I ordered, and part one, The Hunger Games, had normal sized print. Checked the third book, Mockingjay, and found that it had large print as well. So, out of three books, one had normal print, the others large print.

I’ve never before read a book with large print and it feels a bit odd. Easy to read, yes, but it disturbs my typographical sense as the text is ugly when that big. Of course books can be read anyways. It is the content that counts.

Are they any good? Yes. They are. Even grownups can read them, though targeted at youths.
