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.
This book carries on the excitement that we felt in the first one. The characters are as real as ever and the plot is more intense. Yes, the violence is still there, but more in the second half of the novel.
Catching Fire is more of a political novel than anything else, but towards the end, we get back to the violent and inhumane feeling of its predecessor.
We also get to see progress in Katniss’ and Peeta’s relationship. It is really amazing how Collins is able to make a love story between teenagers original.
The ending is stunning and I never would have seen what happened coming. This book is awesome!
