As soon as I finished the Hunger Games, I grabbed this one from the pile on my dresser. The first book wraps up nicely, but you want to know what happens to Katniss. What’s life like back in District 12? Where does the story go?
I have to say that Catching Fire surprised me. I thought she might be a part of more uprising, but the twist with the Quarter Quell surprised me. I won’t give the story away, but despite a simple premise, easy reading, and simple characters, I found myself drawn into the story and struggling to put the book down.
This was a joy to read and it ends with a cliffhanger that had me looking for the third book as soon as I was done.
