The Lovereading4Kids comment
Hot on the heals of the adrenaline rush that was Hunger Games comes the equally excellent and relentles sequel Catching Fire. Katniss's hopes of an easy life after she was top dog in the leathal game show are short-lived after she becomes embroiled in a rebellion against the Capitol.
The second book in the ground-breaking Hunger Games trilogy.
A review of The Hunger Games written by one of our Lovereading Review Panel, Amrit Bunet, age 14.
This roaring tale filled with love, action and darkness is one that has constant suspense. From start to finish you will not be able to put this book down.
Suzanne Collins has written this amazing story in a unique way making sure that you won't be able to take your eyes off this novel for a moment.
Katniss is a simple girl providing food for her family after her father died, but she sees death before her when she is thrown into the arena to face the terrifying Hunger Games. By making a promise to her little sister to return home she sees herself falling in love with her opponent, one that either she will have to kill or be killed by him.
But wait...once reaching the ending of the book that leaves you on edge there are two more books to go. Yes! The Hunger Games is part of an amazing trilogy that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Suzanne Collins is an amazing author and writer; she has a writing technique that makes one feel that they are part of the Hunger Games. When finishing this book you would have been Katniss fighting for your life against your opponents. It's now up to you. "May the odds be ever in your favour."
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta return to their district, hoping for a peaceful future. But their victory has caused rebellion to break out ...and the Capitol has decided that someone must pay. As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the districts on the Capitol's Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless they can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. Then comes the cruellest twist: the contestants for the next Hunger Games are announced, and Katniss and Peeta are forced into the arena once more.
