Title: Catching Fire (The Hunger
Author: Suzanne Collins
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.Marshmallow thoughts:~
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.
Whooop! I really love and enjoy this book! It is even better than the first! I never get tired of reading it even though now is already the third time I'm reading it!
The story continues when Katniss and Peeta won the Hunger Games. Really and odd thing to happen since they should only be one victor. They should be happy and rejoice for their winning but they know though the games has ended, a new thing has started. Things they have no idea that they are the one who cause it. President Snow, the maniac and crazy butthead, threatens Katniss and tells her that the crazy berry-suicide attempt will only bring harm and death to her loves one. Desperate on saving the lives of her family, Katniss have to act and convince that she is madly, insanely, and maniacly in love with Peeta.
When I read this book, I am on a turmoil, crying and cursing for all the injustice and heart wrenching moments that really make me want to just jump into the book and kick President Snow's ass myself! But off course, I can't. Katniss Everdeen, my beloved heroine will have to fight this alone. But wait! She's not alone! Without her knowing it, she is actually is just another piece in a game that is being used and her life seems to spiral out of control. Peeta was taken as a prisoner at the Capitol.
This book is even better than the first! The story is fast pace and it will make you sit on the edge of your chair not caring the itch on your leg and only stop to sip the Chocolate with Marshmallows from a straw on the table! Really, it is that amazing!
