Still hungry? Listen to more Hunger Games.
©2009 Suzanne Collins; (P)2009 Scholastic, Inc.
"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)
This was an amazing novel. I loved the first installment in the Hunger Games Trilogy. I huger games was an interesting book with a cliff hanger at the end. I will say i was not the only fan to the book store the minute its sequel was released. I was pleasantly surprised with the Novel and found it was totally unexpected. Even after hearing the plot-line from a friend who had acquired a ARC copy of the novel i was still greatly surprised with many of the things in the novel. I overall believe this was a sequel that does not disappoint but will surprise beyond belief.
I enjoyed this book almost as much as I enjoyed the first. One thing to note; this isn't the kind of series where you can skip the first book and have the second book make much sense; the drama in Catching Fire relies heavily on some of the character relationships introduced in the first book, The Hunger Games.
Both books are essentially young adult fiction; the protagonist is a 16 year old girl, but the world she lives in is brutal and jarring.
Overall, an engaging listen with a great narrator.
If you loved "Hunger Games" than you will love this! "Catching Fire" was an amazing sequel to the "Hunger Games". I didn't think I would like this one as much because I totally loved the first one. I was very surprised at how much I loved this book! It really makes you want to read Book 3!! It has alot of the same elements as the first book and leaves alot open for Book 3!! I work at a library and not only to the kids love this series, but the adults do too!
If it leaves you wanting more, it can't be all that bad, can it? I can hardly wait for the next book! Love the characters!
I loved "Hunger Games" so much I recommended it to my kids. They loved it so much we bought the book and it has been passed around all over the high school. "Catching Fire" is JUST AS GOOD!!!!
I'd recommend it to young adults and "older" young adults.
This book left me waiting for more. It definitely builds on the last one and I like this series even more than the Gregor books.
