I wasn't sure what Suzanne Collins could do that would possibly top The Hunger Games, but somehow she managed to create a book that was equally good if not slightly better than the first. This book was just as good as the first, and just as good as the movies. He produced The Forbidden and Salome to lukewarm response.
I do want to read the next book though. Of course, I loved Peeta! I know I'm in the minority, and part of me is glad about that.

A day that each district is required to offer two tributes, a boy and a girl aged 12 to 18 years to participate in the games. It often requires a strenuous suspension of disbelief. I appreciate the strength of Katniss as a heroine who commands our attention and holds our love whilst still being what some would consider unlikable; I appreciate the balance of beauty and horror that Collins delivers on every page, treating us constantly to both the darkest despair and rays of hope; and I also - amazingly - appreciate the love triangle.

I want to die as myself. However, I will admit that the violence has the highest potential of being objectionable content.

In the second book of the trilogy-Catching Fire-, once again we follow the story of Katniss Everdeen, now 17 years old, who must deal with the fallout from her act of defiance during the ending of the Hunger Games. One more outcome that I feel from other reviews is that Katniss is definitely heroine of the story but why make other 10 kids villain. Not that I'm shaming the movies; I enjoyed them but you never can include everything the written narrative has to offer.
Some are as young as 12, though the narrator is 16. But since I've put it in my top 20 favorite books, isn't there an obligation to review it? Is this a believable character? I was also inspired to create the Jackniss after I read a discussion that deeply disturbed me. To be fair, I know that the book is supposed to serve as a warning, and in some respects, I think it did. I suppose they had become inured to it, but on the other hand, that meant they knew the horror of it. That I'm more than just a piece in their Games. In seeing some male reactions to The Hunger Games, I am reminded that most men do not identify with female protagonists the way women have been trained to identify with male protagonists.

I would like to thank this book for such amazing description of dystopian world. Her name is Katniss Everdeen. I know I'm in the minority, and part of me is glad about that.

They tortured him for information about the rebels, but he didn't have any, as told him nothing. And did I mention the dialogue at all? Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Overall, I can't recommend Catching Fire and the series in general highly enough. Such a popular series, so many people have read it or watched the movies. So much was left out of his character development in the movies; here he appears even-tempered and a stable comfort to Katniss while in the movies I felt he was more whiny, needy, and clingy. On the positive side, there are many wonderful messages to be gleaned from this book about loyalty, love, courage, friendship, what it means to be a family, and doing what's right in the face of evil. There is a 'romantic' setting as well.
It is still a movie that can be enjoyed though, and I did enjoy it enough. Scream like a frikkin banshee with a frikkin laser beam on it's forehead. While I found myself still indifferent toward Gale's character at this point in the story , I found myself much more connected and sympathetic toward Peeta. Let's try a little visual aid.

But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. It wouldn't even be a choice. And this side by side. What really annoyed me about the writing style was that I knew paragraphs before if something exciting was going to happen.
