Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster children for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull’s-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol…
Collins does it again. This addition to the Hunger Games series is another emotional rollercoaster and a joyride of unexpected twists and turns. Catching Fire continues the journey of Katniss and those she knows. As expected, it is not an easy path. I enjoyed the new characters, and appreciated the development with the old. Some of the twists I realized before Katniss, but others were quite unexpected. Overall, I’d highly recommend this book to anyone who read the first novel, fans of dystopian fiction, science fiction, young adults, and anyone that thinks they might like the series. You won’t be disappointed.
