OMG! This has been the best and the worst day for me. Let’s start with the worst part first…
I forgot my phone this morning, and I didn’t realize it til I got to work…and then when I reached down to take it out of its case and it wasn’t there… can you guess what word came out of my mouth?!? Yep, it was the eff word. I was running a bit behind so going back and getting it was not an option. This was disastrous on so many levels…do you have any idea how long 4 hours without my phone is?!? Yeah ok…4 hours, but it felt like 4 bajillion hours. I know some of you are nodding your head and sympathizing with me…Now comes the best part…
Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games: She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol-a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
In Catching Fire, the second novel of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before…and surprising readers at every turn.
I liked this second book of the Hunger Games trilogy as much as the first one. No, to be honest I liked it even more. It’s probably because I was already familiar with the characters and I had witnessed their struggles and (deadly) endeavors in the first one, so that I found myself really attached to them while reading “Catching Fire”.
Suzanne Collins delivered another sensational adventure where Katniss, Peeta and Gale are thrown into a new vortex of danger and that kept me glued to the book page after page.
