Catching Fire By Suzanne Collins

This is a review of 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.


This is the second book of The Hunger Games Trilogy and after the brilliant first book i didn't know whether this too would be good or not. I read it within one day and i have to say it is just as good as the first one. It didn't disappoint as it was filled with even more action.

This book starts shortly after the previous one left off, when Katniss and Peeta are back home in District 12. Both now have homes in the Victors village but Katniss isn't very happy, even though she managed to survive the Hunger Games, she outsmarted them, much to the disgust of the President Snow.  Now back home Katniss begins to see the consequences of what she did and she isn't sure whether she likes it or not. She misses how everything was before the games but everyone knows there's no going back. Katniss tries to came to turns with what she has done, when the Capitol reveal whats going to happen at the next Hunger Games, the special Quarter Quell. When all is revealed, not many people are happy about it, especially Katniss. You'll need to read the book to find out more.

Once again i really enjoyed this book, we got to learn more about Katniss and how she struggles to come to terms with what she did, which seems hard enough without choosing between Peeta and Gale. The book was once again left at a cliffhanger which leaves you wanting more. This book doesn't disappoint and i really recommend reading it as it is a brilliant book which anyone can read and relate to. It is also another book which will be hard to top.
