This is such a How Suzanne Collins captured the characteristics of such good people, is a mystery. Before I read this book, I read many bad reviews saying that it was the worst book in the trilogy, and that no one would like it.
I disagree with many of these insults, but, however I do have one complaint. It ruins the whole story and yes, I know I wrote that it was incredible amazing eta, but Y'no what I mean. She tried to make another Hunger Games, changed a few rules and called it something else. The Games where the whole point.
The first book revolved around the Hunger Games, and the second was supposed to revolve around Katniss being in trouble with the Capitol, not a stupid spin off of the Games.
I just think that it would be a LOT better if the Capitol forces all the earlier victors to compete as a new idea, not something that has been around for a while. The Quarter Quell is a ridiculous idea. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go rush off to buy the third and final in the trilogy.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review. I hope it helped gather perspective. Catching Fire is another great instalment in the Hunger Games Trilogy. They are soon to embark on a victory tour of the districts to reinforce the strength and domination of the Capitol, and remind the people of their place in the pecking order.
With her success in the Hunger Games, Katniss has unwittingly created more of an impact than she realises and the rumblings of a rebellion are coming to the boil. As the name of this book suggests, the spark of defiance that she showed during the games is slowly but surely catching fire across the districts. Katniss has become the symbol of defiance and hope.
She needs to tow the line to keep her family and friends safe, and continue the on-camera romance with Peeta. It seems that the more Katniss tries to remain cool and calm, the more her charisma gives courage and hope to the downtrodden. The fate of the old man who saluted her from the crowd gave warning of worse things to come. Once the big twist is revealed and the victors find themselves heading off to the arena again, the pace and drama picks up. I had hoped that there would be some sort of united stand and refusal to play the game by the contestants.
I watched the movie after reading this book, and easily spotted the sections that had been dropped eg. Katniss meeting some runaway girls in the cabin who were searching for the fabled District So, which one did I like the best?
Well, I try not to compare books to movies, and to just accept them as different ways of telling a story.
