Big Book Read #19
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Part two of the Hunger Games Trilogy starts off where The Hunger Games left off. Katniss’ survival has struck a chord with the other districts and now there is a movement growing against the Capital and Katniss is their unwitting figurehead; ‘The Girl on Fire”.
In Catching Fire we follow Katniss and Peeta as they begin their new lives as “Victors” while President Snow (creeeeepy) comes up with a horrible way to punish them for stirring up rebellion in the districts.
Like The Hunger Games, Catching Fire is full of action, violence, romance (of the PG variety), horror and drama. Although I didn’t like it as much as The Hunger Games, it is the second book of a trilogy and is a great transition novel for the exciting conclusion.
