Book Review: Catching Fire (Hunger Games #2) by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire is the highly praised sequel to Suzanne Collin's The Hunger Games.

Book Description (spoiler warning for Hunger Games!):
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 book was a complete surprise to me. I did not see the events coming, and Collins hit it out of the park. Again.

I said it in my review of The Hunger Games, but I'll say it again - this book (series) was a major page turner for me. At this point in the series I started buying extra copies for gifts.

If you haven't started the series yet, make it so.



Love, Delphyne

  2. I just finished Mockingjay yesterday and am still trying to digest everything. I enjoyed Catching Fire and was very surprised by the conclusion. Also, I just started the Gunslinger and am anxious to read your reviews after I finish!
