Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Katniss made herself on the top of the Capital’s hate list. She found out how much trouble she was in when President Snow showed up at her new house threatening all the people she loved. The Capital feared an uprising, caused by her defiance at the games. If she didn’t fix the problem soon she would pay by the Capital harming her family and Gale. They couldn’t kill her because the people would know why and be angry so the Capital sought revenge a different way. The revenge they chose, Katniss never saw coming.
Suzanne Collins did an amazing job with the second installment to this series. A lot of the time with series’ the books after the first are good but not as good, with this book it was just as good if not better.
I was surprised time and time again as the story went along. I wasn’t expecting a lot of the events to happen and at times I was completely shocked. This book pulled a lot of emotions out of me. I found myself getting angry along with the characters or even feeling the terror they felt.
Suzanne Collins took me into this amazing world and I didn’t want to leave. I was with the characters until the end. The author has the ability to capture my attention. She holds it until well after I have finished. I can’t wait to read the final book, Mockingjay.
