Catching Fire


         Catching Fire, written by Suzanne Collins, is the second book from the three book, Hunger Games series.  The second book opens up with Katniss in her new life as a victor. Even though she is very wealthy,  hunting is still a daily activity.  Katniss continues this talent because she wants to help Gale’s family, that is struggling to pay for food.  Katniss and Peeta prep to take a victory tour through the districts, to promote the next hunger games.  However, after the previous games, many uprisings against the capitol have been occurring in other districts.  This has caused commotion within the tour and has shown Katniss and Peeta what has been going on outside of District 12.  After the tour the two victors find out that the games will be fought by victors instead of newcomers.  Once in the games, Katniss and Peeta make alliances with other victors.  One of the victors discovers a way to cut off the power in the arena as well as the cameras.  A wire is wrapped around a tree and connected to an arrow.  When the recurring lighting strikes the tree, Katniss shoots the arrow into the wall and breaks the power.  When Katniss wakes up she finds herself in a plane with Gale and other victors.

In all I am a huge fan of the Hunger Games books.   I love the constant thrill and plot changes that Suzanne Collins plays out so well.  The story line and odd way of life are very intriguing to me.  I also really enjoy reading books that have some kind of love story and this book definitely satisfies that desire.  If you love to read action filled books and romance novels, then this is the book for you!
