Teresa I LOVE this book. I also LOVED Hunger Games.
The question is: Do you LOVE this the same or more than Hunger Games?


Kyle I loved the entire series. I don't know if I could pick a favorite out of the three, because there are pros and cons to each. But ultimately I would say I love all three equally.

Teresa I'm reading the second book, on page 226. I LOVE this book. I was sad when the first one ended.
This one seems like it's got a lot more things going on. My most favorite Characters are Katniss, Peeta, and Gale. I HATE President Snow. That man is eerie. It would scare me to meet a man like that. I would probably pee on myself or something.
It seems that Katniss has a good head on her shoulders and she always has the right answers for people that say things to her, whether it be nice or mean.
Gail is a friend to Katniss through thick and thin, then goes off on his own, because he doesn't seem to be able to talk to her or want to be around her, because she has a love for Peeta.
Peeta is sweet too. Katniss and him seemed to hit off, even though to me it seems that they were suppose have been two sworn enemies. They fell in love instead.
The book is very well written and explained very well, too.
The book has its sad moments, thinking about all the kids have to chosen to go to the Hunger Games. It is a Game of survival.
And it's a book about family, every day living, but not really having a life, because they're all videoed all the time.
Can you imagine a life like that? Waking up, doing the things that you do all day, then going to bed at the end of the day being videoed day in and day out?
On top of that not knowing what you will face each day.
I couldn't imagine ever living a life like that, not that I think we would have to.
But still the book has its sad moments. It's kind of depressing to think about a life like that.
There should always be love, not hate in this world of ours.


Christina i loved this book better than the other books. i don't know why, I just feel like it gave more detail about the uprising, and I feel like the middle of a series is always the best. The best adventure happens then.

i kinda love this book


Leslie I think I liked this one best but it's really hard to say. You know, I think of them as one long epic novel that was just broken into three volumes for ease of handling.

Stephanie yes i lllllllllllllllllloooooooooooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv the book


Lostshadows Overall, I really loved the series, but I found this book a bit too much of a retread of what happened in the first book.


Marisa I liked this book but I freaking hated the ending! It made me so mad! I think I threw the book across the room. haha


Daniel Heaphy i liked it as it explored katniss's personalty more.
yet, i felt more scenes could be added as it slightly drags

Hahahaha i no a big cliff-hanger


Seaspray13 This was my favorite book out of the three! <3333


Jaclyn Lore - Edwards YES I LOVE THIS BOOK! THIS BOOK IS MY FAVORITE BOOK OUT OF THE WHOLE SERIES! THIS BOOK IS MORE THAN JUST A BOOK, IT IS AN IMORTANT DOCUMENT OF AMERICA AND SHOULD NEVER BE DETROYED!!!! haha


Britney Smart i really love this book it is awesome and is not predictable at all.


Stephanie Yeah, I loved it slightly more than the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games was like setting the plot, I think, for the rest of the books. When this one came, it was like the climax of the series, and it was incredible! It was the stories all Catching Fire. (:


message 33: by Isabelle (new)

Isabelle awesome! loved it a lot more than mockingjay


Marden Zelaya OF COURSE!!!...IS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS


message 35: by Isabelle (new)

Isabelle yup:)


Karin Alexandersson I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! and the hunger games

1. catching fire
2. Hunger games
3. Mockingjay

Dont like mockingjay that much it's so rushed :( I got real disappointed reading it


Melanie Loved the triology! I was very disappointed the with ending of the final book. :( It's as if the author got tired of writing and just stopped.


Black Queen I love every second I read these three books!!:D I just can not wait for the movie to come out 18 more days to go..:D


message 39: by Anna (new) - rated it 5 stars

Anna YES!!!!!!!!!!! Catching Fire was my favorite book in the whole series!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Amanda (Gale's Chosen One) Potter It's my favourite book in the series.
I guess my intense love for Gale Hawthorne has a small part in that ;)
haha but nah it actually was great. I really enjoyed it. We got to see the love triangle develop and did i mention we got introduced to that sexy tribute who goes by the name Finnick Odair? :D


Abbie YESSSSSSS! I LOVED THIS BOOK!

What do you mean the worst book? You've got to be kidding me. Really? I don't agree. I LOVE this book, better than the first one.


Sawyer Zundel Who doesn't love this book?

Same! I hope they get it right :) who do you think should play him?


Sydney Carlson I love Catching Fire more than The Hunger Games. I think this because I feel The Hunger Games was more predictable. You pretty much knew that Katniss was going to win, but Peeta was just an added bonus. I feel the writing improves as Catching Fire goes on. The beginning was pretty slow though and I do not think the climax of the story was until they get called for the Quarter Quell. After this it got very exciting. I was not expecting them to have to go back to into the games but I did read the inside flap of Mockingjay so I almost knew that they were going to escape some how. When they met the people that were trying to get to District 13 I could tell that this was foreshadowing. I love Catching FIre the best!!


Elizabeth Fraas Personally, I liked the Hunger Games better than any if the other books in the series. I felt like the beginning if Catching Fire was slow, and would have to say I liked Mockingjay the least. I was extremely confused by the ending. Overrall, I loved the whole series! I'm hoping to go to the premiere!


Michelle Garthe I enjoyed the Hunger Games but found the other two to be redundant. I got tired of the sameness and was glad when I finally finished the final chapter in the series. They read like a movie. The first one had me but I don't see why everyone is so in love with this triology. Just my two cents worth.


Zaira I love all three books but Catching Fire was my favourite!!


Isabelle I loved this book
