Hey readers! My blog traffic has been increasing and I just want to say a big Thank-you to all my readers who read my posts with interest. Today, I’m going to review Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins which is the second book in the Hunger Games series. This review will not contain any spoilers from the second book but it will entail spoilers from the first book in the series. So, if you haven’t read The Hunger Games then please do so before reading this review.
The first book left us with Katniss and Peeta leaving the Arena alive with Katniss’s sly trick with the poisonous berries. Though, this act of apparent rebellion against the Capitol will not likely go unpunished. While Katniss is overjoyed and relieved after escaping the Arena, she doesn’t know that she’s still in peril. This impetuous act merely pulled to save Peeta is seen as an act of rebellion by the oppressed people in the other districts. Katniss’s sheer audacity of defying the Capitol and returning unscathed to District 12 inspires others to start a revolution.
With the impending 75th Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta are getting prepared to visit all the districts and the Capitol. But things are different this time. It’s the Quarter Quell. A Hunger Games with a twist. And trust me the twist is going to be the most unexpected one ever…
Like the first book, this one was pretty fast-paced as well but in regards to the plot, it was more than enough. It gave us a detailed storyline of life in the other districts and it really pleased me to know more about Panem and its residents. Other than that, the book is yet another Suzanne Collins classic. Thought-provoking. Exhilarating. Thrilling.
I recommend everyone to read this book. Sty tuned for more reviews.
