Oh my, what can I say about book 2, Catching Fire? Fantastic! Again, let me say that I'm not really a fan of hostile government books, but I started this one and couldn't stop. Just when you think the government can't get any worse you turn the page in this book and there it is something more terrible than before.
After the Hunger Games, we believe that life will go on. The desperate attempt to stay alive in the games somehow turned around on the victor and became a sign of rebellion against the Capitol. People from around the country are using the Games as a cause for an uprising, when all the victor wanted to do was go home to see their loved ones again.
This year is the 75 year of the Games and a Quarter Quell is called for, an extra Game set up half way through the year as an extra reminder of the past. Who will be chosen for these Games? The story takes you back into the arena again following tributes through the horrible tortures designed by the Capitol.
I highly recommend this book after reading the Hunger Games.
As for my reading challenge this is book 8 of 33. By my reading tracker on Goodreads.com I am 2 books ahead of my goal. I'm quite impressed with myself.
