Hunger Games - Book 2 - Catching Fire Why read this one? Having recently enjoyed the first book in the trilogy I had to read this one - I was desperate to know what was going to develop next for Katniss, Peeta and Gale. The books are on offer at lots of retailers at present and I ordered from Amazon for £3.49 brand new. Bargain. Short synopsis... Having endured the reality TV death trial, The Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta return to apocalyptic District 12, their home. Now that they are victors they will live with their family in victors housing - much different from the struggle for life that they had prior to the games. It will soon ... Read the complete review

Catching Fire is part two of a trilogy of books written by established author Suzanne Collins in the late 2000s, and recently made very popular since the first novel was made into a film. The book is set in a futuristic America, known as Panem. Life is not as we know it now, but the country is divided up into 12 districts, with the Capitol City ruling the country. The country is run by a President Snow, who lives in wealth, while the districts that provide all the goods and services for the country live in poverty. The highlight of the year is the annual TV reality show, the Hunger Games, where a male and female aged between 12 and 18 from each ... Read the complete review

'Catching Fire' is the sequel to Suzanne Collins's popular bestseller (and now feature film) 'The Hunger Games' as the second of a trilogy. As someone who thoroughly enjoyed the first book I couldn't wait to dive into this instalment- but is this instalment as good? ==---Story---== In the previous book, both the main character Katniss Everdeen, as well as her friend and fellow District 12 tribute, Peeta Mellark, have been victorious in The Hunger Games- a brutal televised battle to the death between children (known as 'tributes') for entertainment enforced by the governing regime. Several months on, the two of them have to do usual public ... Read the complete review

After watching the new film, The Hunger Games, my love for this series has been rekindled and I was eager to get back into reading the other books in the series. Faced with a stack load of revision I decided that this was going to be the holiday that I picked up a good book again. Not one that's on my English reading list, but some good old teenage fiction. It is fair to say that I was slightly distressed when 30 pages into reading this novel, the select button on my Kindle decided to stop functioning rendering it useless. I immediately ran for my laptop determined to keep reading this captivating novel and I haven't moved since. Six hours later, I have finally finished . Read the complete review

Another three days later and I finished the sequel to 'The Hunger Games'. I was so eager to find out what happens to Katniss and Peeta that I just couldn't wait and whizzed through this one- and again, left wanting more! ~~~THOUGHTS ON PLOT~~~ Back in District 12, Katniss and Peeta get ready for their victory tour around all the districts. Having defied the Capitol with her rebellious action during the games, she gets a visit from President Snow to warn her that uprisings may occur if she portrays herself in the wrong way. Confused about her feelings towards Gale/Peeta, she puts off dealing with it and during the tour returns to her role as the ... Read the complete review
