Katniss and Peeta are taking a well-earned break. After all, they have brought home a victory for District 12. Soon, Katniss considers the possibility of District 13, and thinks that the district is not completely destroyed, and there is more behind it. With Katniss and Peeta the face of the rebellion, they have to pull out the stops to make the rest of Panem fall for their ‘star-crossed lovers’ act in their victory tour. However, seventy-fifth Hunger Games can mean only one thing: the Quarter Quell is back. Everything changes when Katniss is told that she will have to fight again. Will Katniss pull through and prove that she has what it takes to rise above the rest?
Catching fire has not failed to disappoint. I was doubtful about it at first because I thought Katniss’s days of Hunger Games were over, but the story has been cleverly arranged so there is not one dull moment. This one isn’t as gory as its predecessor, because of the nature of the games. I also loved the twist at the end which makes you want to read the third book, which I shall definitely be buying and reviewing. The ending is clever as it has been left open for anything to happen in Mockingjay. All in all, I think that Catching fire should be read without hesitation after The Hunger Games!
