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.

Catching Fire (The Second Book of the Hunger Games)
Average rating
4.4 / 5
Just wow
September 4th, 2015
Personally, I believe this was the best book of this trilogy! Suzanne Collins is able to make you feel 10 different emotions in every chapter, from anger to excitement, from joy to sadness, and if that's not what a good book is made of, I don't know what is.

This book was astonishing. After finishing the first Hunger Games I was looking all over for this one, and it did not dissapoint.The suspense was everywhere, and I couldn't stop reading. I can't wait to read the next book, and watch the movies. =)

Kept you on the edge of your seat
January 9th, 2015
I loved reading this book. I had seen the movie first and then read it, I have to say it was far more interesting reading it. There was so much more to keep you reading and wondering what will happens next. I felt like I was seeing every thing that Katniss had done. There was so much detail I Could not put this book down had to know what was going to happen next.

Catching Fire
December 30th, 2014
I myself, thought that Catching Fire is the best book I have ever read. Katniss takes a perilous walk through the Hunger Games that leads her to the Quarter Quell. The characters in this book play an excellent roll when getting to know the story plot. So, if I were to rate this book, it would be a 5 star rating due to the fact that it draws readers in so it seems like you are the one about to get slaughtered or hurt.

Just when you thought your were out...
November 14th, 2014
Catching Fire is an action-packed follow-up to the Hunger Games. While the story opens with a more settled Katniss, post-victory of the 74th Hunger Games, you can't but help feel a dark, foreboding feeling that her troubles are not over yet. Collins manages to make lightening strike twice with an exciting, dark, and thrilling story that delves deeper into the unrest that threatens the status quo of Panem, and the power of the Capitol. Arguably, Collins' pulls off an amazing feat of writing by capturing the same sense of thrilling plot twists of the original Hunger Games, without the story feeling tired, or formulaic.

A good sequel to an amazing book
November 5th, 2014
The second book in the Hunger games series continues the great writing and page turning action of the first book. It is rare for a series to maintain momentum throughout all the books but Suzanne Collins manages to do this well.

Compelling conception
November 3rd, 2014
A well-conceived and fast paced sci-fi thriller with a story interesting enough to get the reader passed the histrionic irrationality and indecision attributed to the teenaged protagonist. The geopolitical issues underpinning the plot line are worth examining.

Well constructed and suspensful. I don't much care for YA lit--protagonists tend to be so self-righteous & quick to judge others. Also I wonder what's happening to our youth that they seek such sad & violent stories. But old me found the story engrossing and I definitely want to read the 3rd book.
