Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

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.

I completely understand why this series has gotten so much good praise and publicity. Catching Fire is the second book in the Hunger Games series. Suzanne Collins is a truly talented writer. She captures the characters nicely and makes you want their lives to be better. Towards the end, it got a bit confusing to me. Overall, the story was fantastic. I can’t wait for the next Hunger Games book.
I liked the first book better, because this one didn’t draw my attention as much. It was still addicting and wonderful, but I wanted more action and emotion. Sadly, Peeta was kind of annoying in the beginning this book. I found that he lost his drive and sulked a bit too much. I’m still Team Peeta though.
The Hunger Games is a series that you can’t miss! It is addicting, emotional, and just plain amazing. I loved it and hopefully you will love it too.

Nice review, Zoe, I definitely agree with everything you said. I was a bit disappointed by how slow it started, but it was as addictive as ever!

Got to agree about the ending, too. I had to reread a few paragraphs just to get what was happening.

Can't wait for Mockingjay! ;)
