Before I ever read it, I heard that Katniss was somehow sent back into the ring, and I could not think of a way for that to work out well, since the whole point of the survivors was to be 'champions' that didn't have to worry any more about anything. Of course it was some kind of ruse by President Snow to 'get back' at Katniss, but I couldn't think of how he could get away with it. I was pleasantly surprised.

Katniss, on an instinctual level is dangerous and incredibly observant. Her intuition is almost flawless when dealing with people who are her enemies, but friends and family she can be a bit self absorbed, and even worse, people who honestly want to help her, she almost always gets wrong, assuming they have ulterior motives.

But other than wanting to slap Katniss across the face a couple times to make her see what was going on, I was hooked on the story and I hope to find time soon to finish the trilogy. ( )

It was good, I mean, if it wasn´t for Finnkick I would´ve stopped reading. Nice twist in the end though...

Not as strong effort as the first book, as the heroine Katniss suddenly becomes this maudlin character trudging through scene after scene of regret, anxiousness and suspiciousness. Her character becomes extremely unlikable and it seems strange that anyone would want to be associated with her let alone care about her. Disappointing. ( )

Collins has done that rare thing. She has written a sequel that improves upon the first book. As a reader, I felt excited and even hopeful: could it be that this series and its characters were actually going somewhere?
Set down your worries about a sophomore slump. Suzanne Collins has rekindled the crackling tension of her 2008 smash novel, "The Hunger Games." Once again, Katniss Everdeen must fight for her life.
The author describes her wearing a series of Cher-worthy costumes in which she confronts poisonous mists, deranged monkeys, and a flock of ''candy pink'' birds equipped with long beaks used to skewer human necks. Great stuff, this. Unfortunately, such startling apparitions too quickly appear and disappear, baubles randomly affixed to a story that's been stretched to gossamer thinness.
I found the pacing less urgent than that of the first book, but Catching Fire was still very engaging and left me eager to read the final installment.
These books are bloody amazing! Suzanne, love your work and I will be forever grateful that you wrote these!

Book description

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her longtime friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol — a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she's afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she's not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.
