Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire By Suzanne Collins
Scholastic Press, 2009
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction

Official Description:
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. Suzanne Collins continues the amazing story of Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire, the second novel of the phenomenal Hunger Games trilogy.

My Thoughts:
After reading The Hunger Games, I rushed out to buy Catching Fire. This book did not disappoint my excitement at all. I really enjoyed returning to see more of these characters. It was fascinating to see the consequences of decisions made by Katniss and Peeta in the first book and how the two dealt with those consequences. I think that the pressures on Katniss made the emotional tone of the novel even richer. I highly recommend reading Catching Fire and its predecessor The Hunger Games- you won't be disappointed!
