Sparks are on fire. There is a spread of flames. And that's what the Capitol wants. Katniss has won the Hunger Games against all odds. Peeta Mellark's tribute to her and her fellow District 12 is still miraculously alive. Katniss is supposed to be relieved and happy. She has come back to her... family and her longtime friend, Gale, after all. Yet the way Katniss wants it to be is nothing. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta completely turned her back on her. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol - a rebellion that may have been helped by Katniss and Peeta. Katniss has fuelled an unrest much to her shock that she is afraid she can't stop. And what scares her even more is that she is not completely convinced that she should try. As time draws near, the stakes are higher than ever for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the cruel Victory Tour of the Capitol. If they can't prove they're lost in their love for each other without a shadow of a doubt, the consequences will be horrific. Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire, the second novel in the Hunger Games trilogy, testing her more than ever before.. and surprising readers at every turn.

Quotes from Catching Fire

Gale is mine. I am his. Anything else is unthinkable.

In that one slight motion, I see the end of hope, beginning of destruction of everything I hold dear in the world. I can't guess what form my punishment will take, how wide the net will be cast, but when it is finished there most likely be nothing left. So you would think that at this moment, I would be in utter despair.

So it's you and a syringe against the Capitol? See, this is why no one lets you make the plans.

I'm so sorry," I whisper. I lean forward and kiss him.
His eyelashes flutter and he looks at me through a haze of opiates. "Hey, Catnip."
"Hey, Gale," I say.
"Thought you'd be gone by now," He says.
My choices are simple. I can die like a quarry in the woods or I can die here beside Gale. "I'm not going anywhere. I'm going to stay right here and cause all kinds of trouble."
"Me, too," Gale says. He just manages a smile before the drugs pull him back under.

I really can't think about kissing when I've got a rebellion to incite.

Really, the combination of the scabs and the ointment looks hideous. I can't help enjoying his distress.
"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.

Reviews of Catching Fire


Characters from the previous volume reappear to good effect...Collins has also created an exquisitely tense romantic triangle for her heroine. Forget Edward and Jacob: by book’s end (and it’s a cliffhanger), readers will be picking sides—Peeta or Gale?

There is definitely more of a sense of unity among the victors of all people, and the feel of a pre-war spark and the sense of hope that follows these uprisings. I would recommend this entire series to anyone and would give this book a 10/10.

The part where this book excels over 'The Hunger Game's is the fast paced action and electrifying moments that come in the last part of the book, yes you heard correct, THE LAST PART. Suzanne did an excellent job in making the horrors of the Hunger games arena...

I don't think what Suzanne Collins did is good or bad but the thrills, fights and emotions she captured in the first book are so captivating that they cannot be repeated.
