    Description

    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 book

    Book 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.
    The characters introduced to us in Book 1 are developed further and you will feel all the emotions of fear, joy, pain and relief with them.

    Milking the proverbial cash cow

    Having 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.

    While there were some noteworthy chapters in the book, overall the story felt forced. I got the impression that Collins did what most authors in her position generally do - capitalize on the popularity of your first ...

    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 exciting

    I'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.

    Well, it's not really true, in my opinion. Where in the first book the story took had people being smushed and action-packed awesomeness at every turn, in the second book it takes on a very political tenor.

    This plot occupies itself with all the scheming and political battles veiled under smiles that goes on. This book isn't just a 'bridge'...

    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 helples...

    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 disa...

    Amazing Sequel To Hunger Games

    If you thought the Capitol couldn't get any more twisted... you were wrong.

    The highly-anticipated sequel to The Hunger Games is the kind of novel that has you pulling back to take a breath and go, "How did the author think of this?" (if you can stop turning the pages long enough to breathe)

    Catching Fire picks up right where Hunger Games left off. Unrest in the Districts is growing at an alarming pace and Katniss unwittingly finds herself the figurehead for the movement against the Capitol...
