After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen returns to her district, hoping for a peaceful future. But Katniss starts to hear rumours of a deadly rebellion against the Capitol. A rebellion that she and Peeta have helped to create. As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless Katniss and Peeta can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. The terrifying sequel to The Hunger Games.
I read the first book in the series to see if it was suitable for my kids. I absolutely loved it!
This second book was not disappointing at all, as many middle books in trilogies/series tend to be. It sustained the suspense of the first book and followed through on the plot points, including the romance. Overall, the entire trilogy has plenty of suspense, action and mildly gory violence for my son and just and a charming story of romance for my daughter. An excellent example of how young adult literature should be written: it's intelligent and gripping enough for adults (a.k.a. the parents), and has valuable lessons about politics, ethics and morals for the kids.
This book is the 2nd in the series. It answers allot of questions you had left from reading the first book. The second book is by far a better book. You are introduced to some new characters and get to know the older ones better. A must read if you liked the first one.
The Hunger Games was awesome, Catching Fire even better and I can't wait to read the third. As with the first this book has you on the edge of your seat the entire time. And if you love cliff hangers this book ends with one that leaves you hanging for the conclusion. Excellent read!
You need to read The Hunger Games before reading this. Catching Fire takes the reader on a journey that for me was not where I was expecting to go. A lot of twists and surprises. Sets up the third book nicely.
Oh, man. I think this book series has become my favourite.
It's original and thrilling, I have gotten overly attached to
the characters. Its like you're in the book alongside Katniss,
though in most circumstances you wouldn't want to be. I would definitely
recommend this book series to anyone, you won't be disappointed
After the success of The Hunger Games, I have to admit my expectations were high for the second, but I am happy to say that after reading it, it has definitely surpassed them! While the first book was adventurous and set up the trilogy, Catching Fire focuses more on the political intrigue of Panem. Though this book does feel slightly transitionary, as most middle books in Trilogy's do- it was in a good way, and the character development in this book is very good. Most of the reviews I've read for Catching Fire say that they prefer Catching Fire to The Hunger Games, and I agree with them. After the cliffhanger ending, you will definitely be eagerly anticipating book 3!
