The second edition to The Hunger Games Trilogy; Catching Fire.

I didn't really know what to expect for this second book, since the first book was all about the hunger games and how Katniss and Peeta survived. Even if I read the wikipedia plot in the past, I was still not quite sure what to expect; plus I forgot what I read in wikipedia, since it was months ago.

Since Peeta and Katniss won the 74th annual hunger game, they both have been busy getting ready for their Victor Tour. During the tour, intimate things happen between Peeta and Katniss, they were forced into a marriage proposal by the threats of President Snow. After the tour, preparations of the wedding were being made. It was then announced that for the 75th Hunger Games, it would be apart of the Quarter Quell, which only happens every quarter of a century. On this 75th Hunger Games the tributes will be the living Victors of the past hunger games. Now 24 past victors will compete to fight to the death, with only one winner.

I knew that this book would have another hunger games involved, but I wasn't quite sure on how it was going to end. Catching Fire is absolutely unputdownable. I had to force myself to stop reading so I can do my other stuff. It is very very creative. I really think Collins did a fabulous job with this. I enjoyed reading about the new characters and knowing more of the other districts. The flow of the writing was utterly there, hence the fact that it was unputdownable.

I genuinely want Peeta and Katniss to really be together. I want Katniss to really fall in love with him, and leave Gale. I'm not really fond of Gale for some reason. Peeta gives out this vibe that allows you to feel loved, I love him.

The game were written very creatively, I thought they would be in similar to the past hunger games with the forest and all.

Their plans went well in the end I’m guessing, besides a few drawbacks here and there with Peeta kind of being captured.

Overall, the book was fantabulous. I loved it. It was something that I bet no one can put down. It was very creative and original to me. Collins has a lot of creativity in her, you can tell by her writing.
I recommend this book to those who have read the Harry Potter books, and to all the young adult readers out there.
