Book Review: Catching Fire


We're back in the future in this second book of the Hunger Games series. Katniss is back home but her life is vastly different now. Without revealing too much to those who have not read The Hunger Games yet, this sequel takes us on a tour of all twelve districts and presents a very special 75th Annual Hunger Games. This book gets deeper into the way people in the districts live, the rumors of a secret district 13, and talk of a rebellion.

I read Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins in about two days. Although I think The Hunger Games was better in that it was unique and exciting because it was new, Catching Fire is an excellent sequel. I could not put it down, and felt rewarded with interesting storylines and more character development, in addition to lots of action in the 75th Annual Hunger Games.

If you loved The Hunger Games, you'll absolutely enjoy this book. Although you may want to wait until the next one comes out, because it's tough to have to sit and wait for it now! Catching Fire definitely leaves you hanging...even more than The Hunger Games does.

My Rating: 5/5
