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.
I know you've probably read a lot of other reviews of Catching Fire all saying the same thing - that they LOVE it and that it's even better than The Hunger Games. Well, the same goes for me. I am simply amazed with Suzanne Collins and how she can just keep on getting the plot more exciting and having readers on edge even more!
I love that every chapter of the book seems to always end (I'm pretty it's always) with something unexpected and major. Reading the book is an adventure - a heart-pounding, teeth-biting adventure at that, that even when I was aching to know what'll happen next, I was sad to see the book coming to an end. And end it did, as always (of course), with this cliffhanger that guarantees you'll be out getting a copy of the 3rd book as soon as it's released!
I'm telling you, it's the CLIFFHANGER OF ALL CLIFFHANGERS! (At least, for me. :D)
As for the Katniss-Peeta-Gale love triange, I'm happy to say I'm still on Team PEETA! Though of course, I must admit Gale's okay too. :p But still, Peeta is Peeta. *sigh* :)
Book Love: 5/5
