The Hunger Games Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. Pub.  Scholastic, 2009

The second book in a series is often the hardest to write but Suzanne Collins has not shown any signs of trouble in this brilliant sequal to the Hunger Games, reviewed below.

Starting off where the Hunger Games left off,  Katniss and Peeta tour all the 12 Districts and are feted in the Capitol. Things are not right. President Snow is not happy at the way Katniss manipulated the ending of the Games and links her with a rebellious atmosphere that has spread throughout all Districts. Katniss and Peeta detect this in their tour and realise they are becoming the focus of opposition to rule from the Capitol.

As things tighten up, the President announces that the 75th games will have competitors selected from all the past winners, so Katniss and Peeta have to do it all again.

The action is brilliant, the changes in plot continue to surprise and Suzanne Collins proves a master at this adventure /survival/fantasy storytelling.

To say any more would ruin it for you. Just get out and read it.

Hunger Games3 is out from Scholastic this year. I can’t wait!!!
