LoveReading View on The Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire

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 Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire Synopsis

 

After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen returns to her district, hoping for a peaceful future. But Katniss starts to hear rumours of a deadly rebellion against the Capitol. A rebellion that she and Peeta have helped to create.

As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless Katniss and Peeta can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying. This is the terrifying sequel to The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire Press Reviews

“It not only lived up to my high expectations, it surpassed them. It’s just as exciting as The Hunger Games, but even more gut wrenching, because you already know these characters, you’ve already suffered with them. Suzanne takes the story places I wasn’t expecting, and she’s never afraid to take it to very hard places. Stunning. You won’t sleep when you’re reading this one. I suggest beginning in the early morning and clearing your calendar for the day.” Stephenie Meyer

"A blindsiding development hurtles the story through its second half and matches, if not exceeds, the unfiltered adrenaline rush of the first book... Aside from being tremendously action-packed Sci-Fi thrillers, these books are also brimming with potent themes of morality, obedience, sacrifice, redemption, love, law, and, above all, survival." - Booklist


"Beyond the expert world building, the acute social commentary and the large cast of fully realized characters, there’s action, intrigue, romance and some amount of hope, in a story readers will find completely engrossing... A humdinger of a cliffhanger that will leave readers clamoring for volume three" - Kirkus Reviews
