Catching Fire - Review

Title: Catching Fire
Author: Susanne Collins
Published:  1/9/09
472 Pages

Sparks are igniting, flames are spreading and the Capitol wants revenge. 

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 fuelled 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.



Catching Fire is the second book in The Hunger Games Trilogy. I absolutely loved the first book in this trilogy, and was so glad I enjoyed this book just as much.
I love dystopian books, and I think this one is definitely one of my favourites from the genre. I do love the idea of the Hunger Games, even though it seems so brutal.
I definitely think that Susanne Collins couldn’t have written a better sequel. This book is chock full of action with some romance also. It keeps you at the edge of your seat, and I love that. This book was so thrilling and I devoured it, I just wanted to know what was going to happen next. The author definitely knows how to suck a reader in from the first page.
Overall this is an excellent book, and I definitely recommend it to everyone who has read the first. I give it:

P.S. I really want to say more about this book but I’m afraid I’m going to ruin it for you guys. So I’m just going to leave it at that. I know it’s short but it is my first review.
