Catching Fire!

This is probably my favorite book of the series! It was a hard book to put down! I definitely recommend this book, and series, but only to ages 12+ because of the violence

Catching Fire

This is another great book. I liked it just as much as Hunger Games.

Decent book

Pretty decent for a sequel book.


The way the author writes about the scene is very detailed and realistic but it's almost a repeat of the first book

Not just YA

This was my favorite in the series. It's not just for teens.


Catching Fire is the sequel to the Hunger Games.
Overall, it's well written, but I honestly liked the first book a bit better.
It's a really good read though.:)

Very fun

Just like the first. equally fun sequel

Good sequel

Very good. Lots of good details.


It is the best book in the series, of having problems after the hunger games. It is such a great book that everyone should enjoy taking the time to read

Not as good as the first

Y'know... this one just didn't catch my attention the way the first one did. I felt like the first half of the book was EXACTLY what I would expect of every single character/entity in the story. And while the announcement that shaped the second half of the story was completely *unexpected,* once there, again... I felt like everyone was working according to an incredibly predictable script.

I'll still read the third and final installment of the trilogy, but am really hoping it will recapture some of the magic and innovation of the first book




This book was super good, it was awesome! I liked that they went back to the arena, which brought action to the book.=)


this is an amazing book, cant wait for the movie to come out!!

Good book

Things are starting to spiral down for Katniss. In the first book, everything was okay. Nothing was really going on except for the games which was ordinary. But in Catching Fire things start to go amiss. Snow starts threatening her and districts are revolting. 3rd book is even more sickening.


This is an amazing book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Loved the series

Catching Fire was an interesting book. I really like the series that Suzanne Collins wrote. But the Hunger Games was better.

Fun book

I enjoyed this series, but I would have to say that I liked the Hunger Games a little more than this book. However, I still think it's a great book.


It wasn't as great as the first book but it was still kind of good

not as good

The first book was better:-(

a decent middle book

This wasn't as well executed a book as "The Hunger Games" but still a very thrilling tale with characters you couldn't stop thinking about.
