Book Review: Catching Fire

Title: Catching Fire
Author: Suzanne Collins
Rating: 5 Stars

Review: The Hunger Games - A series of games that happens every year where 12 boys and 12 girls are put into an arena where they must fight to the death.

Quarter Quell - An event that happens every 25 years during the Hunger Games where a special rule is introduced.

Rebellion - The moment when every district notices that the Capitol will go down and begins to revolt.

Deaths will be inevitable.

Katniss and Peeta did everything they could to survive the Hunger Games. They flipped the rules and made it so that either both survive or none of them do. Either way, the Capitol loses and they are furious. Now that they are out, people are seeing their move as an act of rebellion. And this is where everything starts.

Panem is in chaos.

Districts are revolting, going against the Capitol and being punished with mass murder. New Peacekeepers are being assigned by the hundreds, equipped with machineguns and other various weapons. And it isn’t much of a surprise when President Snow finds a way to put both Katniss and Peeta in the Hunger Games again, thinking they will both die off while facing 22 other previous victors.

But the joke is on them.

Catching Fire begins to show us that people are starting to take action for themselves. How the Capitol are ruthless people who do anything they want. And how those who find previous events entertaining are forced to take sides. People we have learned to love are being attacked. People we finally meet are being killed. And those who we already knew, are forced into a life or death situation.

From the very beginning to the shocking and unforgettable ending, you are taken on a ride that will leave you breathless and begging for more. Suzanne Collins brings forth her ideas and imagination to create something that we have never seen before. Making us fear for the characters lives and thanking our own government that this is not happening here.

But either way.

Catching Fire forces Panem to change. And that change is not good for any of us.

I cannot wait for Mockingjay!!!!! I think that someone will have to die...not sure who but I'm hoping Gale and Katniss will end up together. Suzanne Collins ended her other series, Gregor the Overlander, with a somewhat sad ending so I'm thinking we won't get a Stephenie Meyer ending for Hunger Games either.

I think a lot of people are going to die. Maybe some new characters. A few old ones. I mean we still have to learn of what happened to everyone in District 12. It will be crazy and I can't wait for it any longer lol
