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 her 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. (more via Goodreads)

  • After reading ‘The Hunger Games’, I could not wait to get my hands on ‘Catching Fire’.
  • Luckily for me I bought the trilogy.
  • In the beginning I was hyped because of the first book.
  • Near the middle I was a little bit losing my interest. ‘Losing my interest’ is a big word, but the flow and rhythm was a little bit out of the story.
  • Near the end it got all my attention back, and I was eager to read ‘Mockingjay’.
  • The above is the reason why I gave it four starts instead of three.
  • About the story, it continues where it left of at the end of the first book.
  • More drama than the first book, however, adventure is still a big part of the story.
  • I’m not going to disclose too much of the story, due to possible spoilers.
  • However, if you liked the first book, go grab the second one!
