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

Amazing

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

amazing

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.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

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.

Ok

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.

Well written, action-packed read

This book kept my interest throughout the entire thing. I read it in two days and then wished I had made it last a little longer! I definitely reccommend this book.

Very Good

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.

SO GOOD

I love the plot of this book- It's just as good as the first book in the series which is really hard to do!

a have-to-read kind of book

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!

awesome

intense book

Good Book

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.

more twists

I found that this book was even more interesting than the first - there were more twists in the plot

The Best

The Hunger Games are awesome and easy to read!

Awsome!

very good book but not as good as the first one in the series
