Catching Fire
Suzanne Collins
391 pages

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster boys for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull's-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol. (Goodreads)


I have just finished Catching Fire (the second in The Hunger Games trilogy)and I feel breathless.

I don't know where to start because I do not even want to remotely give anything away. I loved this just as much as The Hunger Games, if not more! I can't wait to purchase Mockingjay and eat it up too.

Katniss Everdeen, after winning The Hunger Games with Peeta Mellark, has found herself an icon of rebellion after the threat of double suicide with the poison berries in the last Games. This has not pleased those who run the Capitol. There are many changes taking place in her home in District 12, and as she learns, the other districts as well.

They are many twists and turns as the 75th annual Hunger Games is approaching, marking a Quarter Quell, in which makes for a sick twist in the way the Games are played.

I don't want to say much more about the plot because it is so exciting. There were many moments I cried and a few I laughed (mostly Haymitch had something to do with it) but I mostly felt solemn and afraid for the whole lot of them. I had a hard time putting this one down and I feel you will too!

What I give this book:

I also loved this book! I'm so excited for the Hunger Games movie, and I think if they do it right, then they'll be able to do Catching Fire after!

Samantha said...

Absolutely. I hope they don't ruin the movie! I am seriously addicted to this series though. I have a feeling I will read them over and over and over!

This was definitely my favorite of the three. The ending is seriously shocking. You will probably be in shock after the first couple chapters of Mockingjay. I totally had to reread the beginning.

Samantha said...

I am going nuts waiting to buy Mockingjay! I seriously can't stop talking about these books.

Beth said...

I loved this one!!!! But I didn't love Mockingjay as much.

Samantha said...

That's what I keep hearing from everybody.
