Synopsis: Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

        Catching Fire, sequel to The Hunger Games. The plot of this book focuses on the victor’s tour on the 12 districts, more of the Capitol’s cruelness was introduced and the stirring revolution of the people of Panem. President Snow was introduced in this book, the cruel, selfish, greedy leader of Panem, who’s breath stinks of blood. On the previous book, Katniss made something that slapped in the face of the Capitol and now President Snow is angry. He threatens her, and wants her to undo the stirring of the revolution. But President Snow is not pleased. Although Katniss and Peeta have survived the arena and they made it alive, there’s still a lot of consequences at stake. They are still pawns to a larger game outside the arena.
            In this installment we get to see more side of the characters. I’ve learned what Peeta really capable of. Plus Gale is not just hidden in the background this time, there’s more of his scene in here unlike in Hunger Games. And Katniss, still she’s fighting for the safety of her love ones. Still the tough girl we knew from Hunger Games.
            It’s a pretty sequel to Hunger Games. Still a fast paced plot. There’s still surprises at every end of each chapters. Once I started reading it, its hard for me to put it down. Like in Hunger Games, the plot is well delivered and it ended with a flawless cliff hanger that readers will die in anticipation for the final installment.
