This is the third book in The Hunger Games trilogy, and really the weakest, yet most violent of the three. Most likely, there are plans to make a movie from this volume, but it will be very lucky to get anything lower than a PG-13 rating. We have met with the players of this speculative future dram in The Hunger Games and followed their trials a tribulation from there first games to the Quarter Quell in Catching Fire, where they bring back the survivors of the older games from the past seventy-five years. Some of these players are in their prime, and some are way past it. But those games are over now, and we are following the chronicle of Katniss Everdeen as she and her family becomes citizens of the strictly-coded underground living of what was once thought to be lost, District 13, run by a severe woman, President Coin.

Catching Fire is the second book of The Hunger Games series and picks up a few months after the first one ends. The story that Suzanne Collins weaves for us is full of twists and turns that you would not expect to see in a novel written for youths to read. The plots and situations in the book are vary mature in theme and might have kids asking a lot of questions of their parents after they read it. This is not a bad thing as it just might open lines of communication that seem to be lost as children and teens grow up. Any parent seeing their children reading these books should snag a copy themselves so that they can better understand and be prepared for their kids.

At first I was apprehensive in reading this book considering all the hype that went along with it and the hype that went along with the Twilight series. I expected it to be another sappy stupid romance about a girl who hates herself and the world. You know how the teens are right now these days, no disrespect to those teens that do have a sense of self and self respect. Suzanne Collins is a genius in the way that she weave the take that she has to tell and does it in such a way that you can not help but be drawn into it and can not get out of the raging torrent until you have finished the book entirely. It is one of those books that will stick with you and have you looking forward to actually reading the next one. Many series writers are more dry in their approach, seem more cautious in their writing but not Collins. She pours herself into the story and you know that she feels each and every one of her characters. Read more...(994 words, 5 images, estimated 3:59 mins reading time)
