Catching Fire - Suzanne Collins

Posted by on April 24, 2011

Synopsis: Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

Review: To me, this was every bit as good and enjoyable as the first book in the Hunger Games series. I am so attached to these characters! I felt their despair when they were told they would be participating in the Hunger Games yet again in the Quarter Quell. I felt angry for them at the injustice of it all. I felt torn that both Katniss and Peeta would be both participating again and worried about what this would mean.

I am really loving the Katniss pretending to love Peeta, but Peeta really loves her storyline. It was cruel but captivating and kept me turning the pages. The Katniss - Peeta - Gale love triangle has had me fascinated since the first book and Catching Fire continues this part of the story in a big way!

President Snow starts showing his true colours, and he is a true villain. You start to understand how evil he really is in this book!

So much to love about this book - a must read!
