LOVE i loved this book. i loved the new characters. I liked the development between katniss and peta.
“I wish I could freeze this moment, right here, right now and live in it forever”
This is my favorite book of the three. I love the way you start to see Katniss‘s true feelings for Peeta even though she continues to deny them. I also loved the overall idea of the set up of the arena and how they worked together to figure it out and outsmart the game makers.
Published 2009. The second novel in the trilogy by Suzanne Collins. After winning the Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta begin their victory tour, visiting each of the 12 districts. For this years Quarter Quell, the tributes are picked from the remaining victors. Katniss and Peeta return to the arena on a mission to protect the other. They form alliances with other tributes and navigate the challenges of the games.
300 Books read! I spent most of my life shrugging away books, just never had an interest. Basically spent all my free time gaming and, well, not reading. I can say I did start feeling the pull towards books for a few years before 2015, like Anakin Skywalker trying to resist the dark side. And like Anakin, I succumbed to the pull on 10/15/15…walking through a store.. I grabbed a book on a whim…and that was it. 7 years, 300 books, ~42/year.
Catching Fire was an excellent follow-up to
The Hunger Games. The romance, the plot twists, and all the newly introduced characters added up to make an exceptionally intense and keep-you-up-all-night novel. I really don't think I could have asked for a better sequel.
“Poor Finnick. Is this the first time in your life you haven‘t looked pretty?” I say. “It must be. The sensation‘s completely new. How have you managed it all these years?” he asks. “Just avoid mirrors. You‘ll forget about it,” I say. “Not if I keep looking at you,” he says.
This book is by far one of the best books I have ever read. It is the perfect sequel to the hunger games and I love how the author manages all her sentences. It has just the right amount of description, perfect and fitting dialogue, and overall a fantastic book. Dystopian fiction is amazing. I would recommend this to loads of people.
Overall Rating 5⭐ | Narration 😍=Amazing
(Re-read on Audio)
This still holds up as one of my all-time favorite dystopian series. It is the series that started my love for this sub-genre of science fiction. The narration was once again top-notch and I highly recommend the special editions of these books with Tatiana Maslany‘s narrating. I‘m looking forward to listening to the final book in the series, soon.
This is not a quote but why do people think that forcing someone to marry somebody is going to stop war! Like umm if that is the case 2 years olds would be married. You never know what they people would do! Anyway the point of this is that if you are ever running a country DONT FORCE PEOPLE TO GET MARRIED please. Ok thanks for your time! Bye and have a good day. :D
On every subsequent re-read, I enjoy this series but there was something different going on with Tatiana Maslany's narration that I love.
The way her voice catches, the sighs and small dips in her voice. The confusion of her emotions from the last games through this victory tour and into the Quarter Quell really echoes through Tatiana's voice and brings another dimension to the role.
#audiobook Finished the second book and man what an ending! I was just as taken aback as Katniss; no one ever seems to let the reader know the plan 😉 Looking forward to finishing the trilogy!
A great follow up! The plot is really thrilling, but the characters are also well written out. I would have liked for the time in the arena to be a bit longer, but this was also very nice. I liked how the 24 participants reacted in the trainingsarea. Katniss can be a bit annoying at some points, but she is still very strong and powerfull. Loved it!
Another exciting story. I had expected a different uprising. Unfortunately I was a little annoyed as I found Katniss clueless and needlessly hostile and at times calculating (which was good) and then impulsive (which was bad). It got a bit on my nerves. Haymitch was right. Nevertheless I liked the story and I'm adding the third book to my wishlist.
TBR since forever; 391 pages.
Although both Katniss and Peeta have won the Hunger Games, neither has achieved their fairy tale ending, especially with rumours spreading of a rebellion against the Capitol - one that they may have helped ignite. Catching Fire, an excellent sequel to The Hunger Games, revolves around the aftermath of Katniss and Peeta surviving against all odds, and tackling the unforgettable memories that terrorize them at night.
