Catching Fire – Book Review

Brian & Sam review Suzanne Collins' Catching Fire (Hunger Games Book 2) on the Thrice Read Books blog

About the book:

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. (From Amazon.com product listing)

Brian’s Review:

Book 2 to the Hunger Games trilogy, and this book is no disappointment.  Collins continues to build on her great characters and entraps your mind with them.  Again I can say if you love the movies you’ll love the books.  This is a series you will not want to put down.  I don’t recommend trying to read these books one at a time, as while you wait for the next you’ll be chewing your nails.  Just better to get them all and enjoy them as one.

Thrice Read Books reviews of Suzanne Collins' Catching Fire (Hunger Games book 2), reviewed by Brian and Sam

Sam’s Review:

The second installment in the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins doesn’t disappoint this reader, being equally good as the first. The title is Catching Fire.

Katniss and Peeta have been chosen for the Games yet again, and they have possibly started an uprising. President Snow is after Katniss, which makes this a whole lot more fun. Not! I feel really bad for Katniss.

This book was extremely fun, just like the last one, but i was slightly confused in the beginning because it just launched right into the story. Don’t worry though, everything was explained over time, which is good.

Brian’s Review:

This is book one to a great trilogy.  I highly recommend reading this book before you endeavor on seeing the film.  Filled with twists suspense action and all out making you cheer for the underdog, the Girl with the Dragoon Tattoo will have you cheering and fearing page after page.  Word of warning, once you open this book you will not want to stop reading until you have read all 3 books in the series.  If you love books, if you love words, you love justice, then you undoubtedly love this book.
