By winning the annual Hunger Games, District 12 tributes Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark have secured a life of safety and plenty for themselves and their families, but because they won by defying the rules, they unwittingly become the faces of an impending rebellion.
Once again, thought provoking and exciting page turner. My only complaint is that because of the first person narrative from Katniss' point of view, this and the third book miss out on a lot of interesting things happening in the revolution elsewhere - very narrow.
This book was very unexpecting. I mean, who knew Katniss would get thrown right back in the arena while District 12 was being destroyed? It was still extremely thrilling and just as good as the Hunger Games. Suzanne definetly knows how to get people hooked and reading!
This book was probably my favorite of the trilogy (I also really liked the first one, but having seen the movie before reading it I knew what was going to happen so I was not as surprised). There were a lot of plot twists which made it very interesting. Once I started reading this book it was hard to put it down.
A great follow-up to the first. Catching fire continues to comment on our culture while telling a captivating story. Make time to read this one twice - all the pieces come together at the end and I enjoyed it even more the second time (read it twice back to back - seriously!).
This book was a lot of fun to read, for multiple reasons. First and foremost, it revisited the characters and the world that had been built up in the first Hunger Games book. But it did more than just revisit them--it built on them in new ways. It was interesting to watch Katniss evolve over the course of the story as she struggled with nightmares and the terror of the arena that had never really left her. It was also interesting to read about previous and new Hunger Games--not just the previous one, but the one featured in this book, as well as one from twenty-five years ago, when Haymitch won. The story was just as good as the first one. If you liked The Hunger Games, don't miss this!
