Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Forgive my ignorance but isn't this just a re-telling of Hunger Games?

Book 2 of The Hunger Games Trilogy finds Katniss at the raw end of the President's stick. The Capital wants to end whatever goodwill Katniss and her partner, Peeta have created in the districts.

In order to stop a possible uprising, The Capital decides to return all winners of the hunger games back for a rematch. Katniss and Peeta are back at it only this time they are fighting the heroes.

While reading this and particularly the ending I kept thinking this book was primarily written as a place holder until the third book when it all hits the fan.

The arena in which the games are played is different but the characters return to rehash the same places and scenarios as the previous book.

So maybe you die hard fans can right my sails. What was I missing in this rehash of a sequel?
