Catching Fire is one of the best books ever. That series is SO GREAT. I think the third book will be called Girl on Fire.

THIS DISCUSSION NOW CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!

Emily (readingmaniac777) | 737 comments Mod
I loved this book so much and the ending threw me so much, w/ the berries and everything. I loved when she pretended to be in love w/ Peeta but he was really in love with her the whole time, Peeta is SOOO sweet and I can't decide if I'm team Peeta or Gale but Peeta is winning currently though I could get a couple friends who could argue that. RUE! I loved Rue and I was soooo sad when she died. I loved cinna too he is awesome
AND THE CREEPY DOG THINGS....ugh the whole eye thing EWWWW
I'm afaid to give spoilers for catching fire.

My favorite character in the entire book is Cinna. He is so awesome and so different from the typical Capital people. I also loved Peeta and how good and gentle he is but there is a definite argument that Catniss is better off with Gale -- they are just alike and knew and loved each other before she even knew that Peeta had feelings for her.


message 25: by Emily (new)

Emily (readingmaniac777) | 737 comments Mod
yeah and Peeta loved her before they even spoke to each other


Holly's Little Book Reviews (hollyslittlebookreviews) | 141 comments Rue is my favorite character... The scene where Katniss says goodbye to her is so touching. I am probably more team Gale just because (like Karalee said) she is more meant to be with him (although she did have that story with Peeta giving her food when she was younger...)
The thing I really like about this series in general is that it has a political statement to it. Not like a book based on an election or anything like that, but just standing up for what you believe in and going against the higher-ups when things don't sit right in your mind. I think it's a great message to get out to teens who are getting ready to vote their opinions in real life :)

I totally agree, Holly!

Suzanne Collins said she wrote this book to write about the effect of violence and teens and adolescents
and the whole tribute thing was based on the sacrifices to the minotour in Greek mythology
I thik this is very interesting



Holly's Little Book Reviews (hollyslittlebookreviews) | 141 comments That's really interesting Em! Thanks for letting us know!!! It's always fun to know what inspired the author and what their "message" really was.

It's a great book! I enjoyed reading it... so much action and twists and turns in the story. I wasn't expecting that berry thing to happen at the end. I guessed that Katniss & Peeta would be okay in the end, but I didn't know that they would outsmart the capitol by pretending to eat the berries. I'm looking forward to reading Catching Fire! I need to read it soon. :-) My favorite character is Cinna. He is so nice compared to the other capitol people, and I like his personality, too. I think Katniss is probably my 2nd fave, because she's smart and brave and everything. She is pretty clever! As for being Team Peeta or Team Gale, I can't decide, but Gale seems to be the best for Katniss. I'll see what happens in the next book. :-)

Kim (777readersfan) | 518 comments Mod
So glad you liked it!! I love Cinna too - even more in book 2!!! Katniss is awesome too. I love her cynicism and the way she will fight for the one's she loves.


message 33: by Charmaine (new)

Charmaine (empress_charla) Cinna is mentioned in the 2nd book, too? Great! I'm looking forward to reading it. :-) Who is your most favorite character, Kim?


message 34: by Emily (new)

Emily (readingmaniac777) | 737 comments Mod
CINNA! OMG I LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!! haha I also luv Haymitch and Peeta and Gale and Katniss and Rue and Prim


message 35: by Kim (new)

Kim (777readersfan) | 518 comments Mod
I think I like Cinna the most too, and Katniss is a close second.
