Catching Fire Book Review

Author: Suzanne Collins
Publication Date: 9/01/09
Grade: B
Gender: Male and Female
Age: 12+
Genre: Science Fiction
   I liked the original better. I have to say that. Yes, if you like violience it was violent. Even though it didn't satisfy my violent needs since I like a lot of gore. Yet, I didn't think this book was nearly as good as the first. In my opinion it spent a lot of time recapping all the stuff from the first book. My favourite character, Rue was obviously not in the book. That made me very sad. I think Katniss was to weepy threw out the book. One big thing I didn't like is that it was going through a patten that followed the first book. I also don't like the idea of them going back to the Hunger Games. Even though it is a good idea. Ok does that that make any sense? It is a good writing idea and good for the story, but it makes me upset. Also the whole entire Hunger Games went extremely fast and near the end I got a little confused. So that is pretty much all I have to say about this book. In all as I stated at the beginning I thought the first book was much better, but I will still read the next book.


  1. Awww, it's too bad you didn't enjoy Catching Fire as much. I admit that The Hunger Games was better, but I'm still looking forward to Mockingjay!

  2. Aww thanks for the honest review! All the things you said were true, but I still loved it. I'll admit I did get a little confused at the end, but after I discussed it and re-read it, it got a lot more clear.

  3. Yea I am still going to read Mockingjay and the cover is really nice. I guess it really just isn't my genre. Thank you for commenting.

  4. Oh I thought both books were simply Brilliant!! I think this idea is so clever and catching. It really got me!!
