Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - Book Review

6 years ago

Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games)

Catching Fire is the second book in Suzanne Collins' trilogy, The Hunger Games.  I found this book to be just a riveting as the first and read it from cover to cover in a matter of hours.  So engrossed was I in the pages, it was 3 a.m. before I knew it.  I paid for it all the next day by walking around in a fog, but it was worth it.

 
Catching Fire begins where The Hunger Games left off.  Katniss finds herself back in District 12 after she and Peeta have both been declared Victors of this year’s annual Hunger Games.  No easy feat to accomplish, she should be reveling in her victory.  However, Katniss is anything but.
 
She quickly realizes her life can never go back to the way it was.  Peeta, the only person who can understand what she’s been through, won’t even acknowledge her existence.  Her best friend Gale has become so cold she may die of frost bite from his hard stare.  And not to mention, she fears she may have started a Revolution among the Districts by her actions in the Games.
 
As she and Peeta must set out by Capitol mandate on the Victor’s Tour of the Districts, she begins to see that the game isn’t over.  She and Peeta are still in a fight for their lives.  Proving to everyone and President Snow of their undying love has now become a matter of life and death.
 
This book is a must read to anyone who has already read The Hunger Games.  For anyone looking for a good series with a diabolical plot, violence, murder, and romance, then this is for you.
 
Catching Fire will keep your mind sharp as you navigate through the twists and turns of Katniss’ and Peeta’s latest adventure.  Suzanne Collins has you guessing until the end and throws in a few surprises you didn’t even see coming.  You will be anxious to read the trilogy’s conclusion, Mockingjay .
