Catching Fire is the sequel to The Hunger Games. It follows Katniss Everdeen’s and Peeta Mellark’s return home to District 12 in Penam country after the end of the 74th Hunger Games.
Summary Of The Book
Peeta and Katniss are on a victory tour of the country after emerging as winners in the 74th Hunger Games. An angered President Snow comes to see them at their District 12 home for they owe their victory to Peeta breaking game rules in the final round. Snow tells Peeta that her actions have caused rebellions in the districts of Panem. Her first visit is to District 11, home to Hunger Games ally, Rue, where a tribute is made to her memory. She proceeds to visit all 12 districts and learns that her visits have not managed to subdue revolts. Her public proposal to Katniss also fails to placate President Snow.
Soon after their return home, they hear the announcement for the 75th Hunger Games in which 24 previous victors will be forced to participate. Both Katniss and Peeta will participate. Katniss vows that she will try her best to ensure Peeta’s victory in the 75th Games. What happens in the 75th Game, which packs its share of new rules and surprises and with rising tension amongst the people of Penam against the Capitol in the backdrop, is what the book is all about.
Overall, the book received positive reviews worldwide. It stood fourth in Time magazine’s top 100 fiction books of 2009 and eighth in People magazine's Best Books of 2009. It was decided that a film adaptation of Catching Fire would be released in November, 2013 to be directed by Francis Lawrence.

Perfect sequel to the 1st bookBook 2 is just as good as the first one. It is perfect page turner, and just as you think you have figured out some of the what is going to happen, Collins throws you in a completely different direction.

Milking the proverbial cash cowHaving read rave reviews about the Hunger Games trilogy, I went ahead and purchased the box set containing all three books. I will admit that the first one was genuinely brilliant. The second one, though, didn't quite match up to, or even come anywhere close to, my expectations.

Simply Stunning.........Wow....what a sequel! This 2nd book narrates 75th HG. After reading 1st book, i immediately ordered the second and i am not disappointed. Though the 1st book engrossed me instantly after 1st chapter, this one kicks after end of 1st section. But when it starts, you will find it hard to put it down. I have to admit that Hunger Games Triology is my second favorite after Harry Potter and Suzanne Collins my most favorite author.

Not disappointing, not as excitingI've heard a lot of people complain that like most authors, Suzanne wrote the second book with a weak plot as a bridge to the next one in her trilogy.

Why you should read Catching Fire when you disliked THG!The first book of the series is fine enough, but not that gripping and less convincing at places. However, the Catching Fire will certainly make you fall in love with the series and oblige you to read the third book. In this book, for the first time we discover Katniss Everdeen as a girl beyond a ruthless shooter. We get a more closer view of the despotism of the Capitol, we get to sense the magnitude of hatred of the districts for the Capitol. The traumas and dilemmas of Katniss, her helplessness yet strong will power against every odds brings her closer to our hearts. This is a must read eve… (Expand)

not impressed.Honestly, I really expected Catching Fire to be way better than The Hunger Games, the first book. But I'm really disappointed. I think the story's been dragged too much. there are places where you feel the same excitement that the first book gave you, but you can't compare. I bought Mockingjay too, from here. I finished Catching Fire about 5 minutes ago, thought maybe i could help y'all by writing whatever i thought. I want to say more but my policy = no spoilers. so yeah, basically, I'm disappointed, but I'll still read Mockingjay hoping it to, you know, make up for it and stuff...let's see w… (Expand)
