Catching fire by Suzanne Collins
Reviewed by Moirae the fates book reviews
Sparks are igniting, flames are spreading and the Capitol wants revenge.
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol-- a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
In Catching Fire, the second novel of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before... and surprising readers at every turn. (Synopsis provided by goodreads)
I really liked book 2. I liked getting to meet new characters and seeing the new arena. I absolutely loved Finnick, I found him to be hilarious and such a treat to the book.
Sadly, I had a large part of this book spoiled for me so I knew what was going to happen before it did, so I can't say what I would have thought or if it would have been a surprise.
I can't wait to read book 3, even though again I had parts of it spoiled for me. Even with book 2 being spoiled, I stilled liked it more then book one. I think this has a lot to do with Finnick, Johanna and Beetee, all of them were awesome! I hope to see more of them in book 3.
It's really neat how in book 2 we really go to get into the heart and underlined message that the books present. I highly recommend this series.
So say we all!
