Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Published by Scholastic Press
Date Published: September 1, 2009
Rating: 4.5/5

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!

No questions asked – I absolutely loved this book! Even though I loved The Hunger Games, personally I enjoyed his one more. I would describe this book as a “divine uprising enveloped in conspiracy.” From the beginning, Katniss begins continues her life after winning The Hunger Games. It was time for the Quarter Quell Hunger Games for this was the 75th Hunger Games. I was thrown a curveball as I read this because I didn’t know that the Hunger Games would be brought back into it, which is okay with me. But I never thought I would see Katniss and Peeta in the games for a second time. This book deals with the rebellion of a nation against the government for a chance at a life of freedom without consequences. By the end, I was attached to Katniss again and wanted to see her escape as much as she wanted to escape. So far this book is my favorite one of the year! It kills me to have to wait for Mockingjay but I absolutely cannot wait to read it! District 13 here I come!
