This is a series book, please do not read unless you have read Hunger Games first!
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
In Catching Fire, the second novel of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before...and surprising readers at every turn.
Wow. Can I just say that? Wow. I am left hanging on the edge of my seat, and luckily I waited for the next book to already be out before reading this one because I was able to pick up the next book instantly and continue the story. We were left off with Katniss embarking on a new journey now that the games were over, only the question was if this journey was with Peeta or Gale. (I personally was rooting Gale) Yet there is the lingering finger of the Capital that so menacingly likes to wedge their way into everyone's lives and push their agendas. (Yes, that is my personal anger rising a level, proof that this book has hooked me rather well)
This review earned five hearts. I was enthralled so well with this book, again I was able to feel the ripple of emotions as Katniss has her dreams shattered, her heart broken and her body fed to the wolves (of the capital of course!) Well done Suzanne Collins for another winner of a book!
Thanks for listening to my opninion!
