Een waardig vervolg op [b:De Hongerspelen|10857048|De Hongerspelen (De Hongerspelen, #1)|Suzanne Collins|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1300957619s/10857048.jpg|2792775], en lekker te lezen boek.

Het boek begint wat langzaam, met een deel van de Toer die Peeta en Katniss na het winnen van hun Hongerspelen, moeten maken.

Echt beter wordt het pas na de bekendmaking van de Kwelling, als Peeta en Katniss opnieuw in de arena aan de slag moeten. Het plan was mij eigenlijk al vrij snel duidelijk

Wachten wat het volgende deel ons gaat brengen ( )

This one had some very sad and memorable momemts and while a high a caliber as the first one, the story was different engough to still be engaging. ( )

The first book of a trilogy benefits from presenting a world that is brand new to the reader. A brand new landscape can give your plot wings that it might not otherwise have, or at least distract from the fact that you might be starting off slowly. The trick for the second book then is to move forward without the advantage of being a whole new world. Collins does this quite nicely by viewing that world through newly opened eyes. Very early in the second book, CATCHING FIRE, the life Katniss looked forward to living after surviving the Hunger Games is shattered. It is revealed that the Games continue outside the arena. What she has experienced of life, true of most teenagers, is barely the surface of what is really going on and that forces are at odds behind the scenes that she had no idea were at play. For YA fiction, the book does a very nice job of allowing the creeping ill will of life under a dictatorship to grab the reader and slowly begin to tighten it's grip. A sickening dread pervades the book extending even to the love triangle--Katniss cannot separate her small picture from the larger one. While still prone to teen flights of emotion, Katniss is shown to have grown and when forced into the games again, does so with a new maturity. While the twist at the end of the book was something I suspected was coming, it was not accomplished in a predictable way. If I had a quibble with the follow up, the second half seems a bit rushed. There are a slew of new characters thrust upon the reader and I didn't completely have a grasp on them before the action took off. On the whole though, the seond book works on its own as well as setting up for the final installment. ( )

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?
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.

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.
Haiku summary
Katniss and Peeta
fight the odds once again, but
rebellion's afoot.
