Before reading The Hunger Games trilogy, I had more than a few people tell me the first two books were good, but the last one was lacking. I couldn't disagree. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. "Collins ratchets up the tension in the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. With a host of well-drawn new secondary characters and more lives on the line.

When I read the first book of the Hunger Games trilogy three years ago, I wondered how the author, Suzanne Collins , would continue the story.

Catching Fire

I thought it was a great action-packed book, but it seemed clear to me that it revolved around one event, The Hunger Games, one fight and also one story. When you know how the Games have ended, you know how the book has ended.

Well that is what I thought In her second book, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Collins has managed to continue the story. After their victory tour through the twelve districts, Katniss and Peeta have to enter the games yet again.

But times have changed - all through the land there are uprisings against the Capitol and with it President Snow.

Katniss, who after threatening to kill herself and Peeta with the poisonous berries in the first games, is in serious danger from President Snow, because by not playing by the Capitol's rules she has become the Mockingjay - the symbol of rebellion. And rebellion is the basis on which Suzanne Collins continues the story. Katniss and Peeta ally themselves with Finnick Odair from District 4 and Mags , his year-old mentor.

Mags sacrifices herself to allow Finnick to save the weakened Peeta. Wiress reveals that the arena is arranged like a clock, with each danger occurring at a fixed time and place for one hour. However, Wiress is killed, and in retaliation Katniss and Johanna kill the tributes of District 1.

The remaining tributes work on Beetee's plan to harness lightning to electrocute the District 2 tributes, who later interferes and disrupts the plan. Katniss uses her bow and arrow to direct the lightning into the force field, destroying it and knocking her unconscious. Katniss wakes up en route to District 13 with Finnick, Beetee, and Haymitch.

She learns from Haymitch and Plutarch Heavensbee, the Head Gamekeeper, that there has been a plan to rescue Katniss, now the living symbol of the rebellion. Enraged that Peeta, along with Joanna and tribute Enobaria, have been captured by the Capitol, and for not being confined with the plan, Katniss attacks Haymitch.

She later learns from Gale that, though her family and some other residents have escaped, District 12 has been destroyed.

Themes[ edit ] The main themes of Catching Fire include survival, sacrifice, and the conflict between interdependence and independence. They are both helping each other to survive. As a matter of fact, they want the other one to survive more than they do themselves.

After suppressing the first rebellion, the Capitol establishes rules in order to restrict and control the citizens' lives. Examples noted by Dill include that, "the 75th annual Hunger Games have 'new' rules that cause Katniss and Peeta to be in danger once again.

More 'Peacekeepers' are placed in districts to diminish any hope that the citizens started to have after the last Hunger Games. Other themes in the book include morality, obedience, sacrifice, redemption, love, and law.

An eBook version was also published on June 3, Publishers Weekly wrote, "If this second installment spends too much time recapping events from book one, it doesn't disappoint when it segues into the pulse-pounding action readers have come to expect.

She has written a sequel that improves upon the first book. As a reader, I felt excited and even hopeful: could it be that this series and its characters were actually going somewhere?

Not to mention primed for part three. The same review from The Plain Dealer expressed displeasure at how, "after pages of romantic dithering, I was tapping my foot to move on.The book started moving at a really fast pace after that point, with Katniss and Peeta preparing for the next Games, and I was like "wait, what? But will he even come? He's frikkin hotter than the guy playing Peeta!

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins - review

Everyone loves Katniss. Perhaps it's even okay to let the odd one slip if you do so happen to be so lucky as to get your shitty novel published.

The straggling ideas at Katniss mind between the fleeing away or stand for the rebellion..
