On My Nightstand - Catching Fire

Catching Fire - By Suzanne Collins (391 pages)

On the back cover:
Against all odds, Katniss has on the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol – a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.
Much to her shock, Katniss has fuelled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. Was time draws hear for Katniss and Peeta to visit the district on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
In Catching Fire, the second novel of the Hunger Games trilogy, Suzanne Collins continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, testing her more than ever before ... and surprising readers at every turn.

My thoughts:
I loved, loved, loved The Hunger Games (first book in this trillogy), so I could not wait to read this book.
When I finally bought it and started reading it, I devoured it in 2 days.
I think Suzanne Collins is a great author, she has a wonderful imagination and so great at painting a picture for us about a world so different than what we know.

I would recommend this book, but you have to read the first one, otherwise you will be completly lost.

My rating: 4 1/2 out of 5.
