Publisher's Summary

Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

Still hungry? Listen to more Hunger Games.

©2009 Suzanne Collins; (P)2009 Scholastic, Inc.

What the Critics Say

"Collins expertly blends fantasy, romance and political intrigue (so who needs vampires?)." (People Magazine)

"Catching Fire not only lived up to my high expectations, it surpassed them. It's just as exciting as The Hunger Games, but even more gut wrenching, because you already know these characters, you've already suffered with them." (Stephenie Meyer)

"...enough action to please Hunger Games fans and leaves enough questions tantalizingly unanswered for readers to be desperate for the next installment." (School Library Journal, starred review)

    "Best in Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Catching Fire to be better than the print version?

    No, but more convenient for commuting. The narrator does a great job, but for me audio books supplement print rather than replace.


    Have you listened to any of Carolyn McCormick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    One of my favorite narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    Exceptional series, marketed as a YA book, but I really enjoyed reading it with my kids 22, 20 and 12. Lots of good conversation starters in this series.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Catching Fire?

    There are so many twists that come out of nowhere and just when you think you might have it figured out, it twists again! Downloading Mockingjay as I type!

    Very enjoyable, but as it is the middle book, it leaves the listener waiting to know what happens next.

    While lacking a bit of the freshness of book one, it is still a worthy companion

    Story
    "Great book...but not as good as Hunger Games."
    Would you listen to Catching Fire again? Why?

    Yes...I'd listen to it again. It was a great adventure espeically once the Quarter Quell names were selected. I wouldn't mind going through that again...very exciting and full of drama.


    Which character – as performed by Carolyn McCormick – was your favorite?

    Haymitch Abernathy. I love this character...mainly due to his comic relief.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Espeically after the quarter quell names were selected!


    Any additional comments?

    As with most trilogys the second book wasn't as good as the first. However, that was a tall order to beging with. Book one was just SO good. The concept of the Hunger Games isn't real original...but, this version of it was written well and timed perfectly!

    I really loved the direction and action that happened at the end of book two. A lot of stuff happened in a short amount of time! I'm skeptical of how everything can be wrapped up in just one more book. But, I'll be reading to find out!

    "Stimulating."
    Would you listen to Catching Fire again? Why?

    The story was exciting. The book kept the listener interested throughout the entire story. I immediately wanted to listen to the next book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I did not have a favorite character. Each character made choices depending on their relationship, reality, and current environment.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    Ms. McCormick kept the listener continually interested by frequent changes in choices depending on perspective of the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I felt disgusted with the control the City and Sector 13 had over it's people. I also was angry that one person made political decisions over the lives of so many people.

    What did you love best about Catching Fire?

    The story was very entertaining.


    What other book might you compare Catching Fire to and why?

    People compare this series to Twilight but it didn't feel the same. It's much more of an adventure series than romance.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    Her characters were clearly defined but not over voiced.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The characterization of President Snow
