Book Review: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Title: Catching Fire

Author: Suzanne Collins

Number of Pages: 391

Genre: YA Dystopian

Overall Rating: 3/5 stars

Summary From Cover: 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 her 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 in the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before…and surprising readers at every turn.

Discussion: Honestly, this book is not needed. Suzanne Collins could have stopped after the first one.

I liked it, I guess, but it got a little tiring. I didn’t like Katniss much, Peeta got boring fast, and the plot wasn’t great. It seemed like Collins was trying to hard to make it work.
