Catching Fire

Suzanne Collins once again weaves a amazing tale with action and suspense, the conflict of following heart over duty, and courage to take a stand against evil. How one girls act of defiance brings courage to a nation to take action against their government.

After defying the Capitol by ensuring that both her and Peeta survived the Hunger Games, Katniss returns home to find that she she has fooled no one outside the Capital with her faux show of love for Peeta. On her victory tour she discovers that there is unrest in many of the districts, and that she is to credit as the spark of defiance that is catching fire in the country of Panem.

In a final attempt to subdue any uprisings the president increases the presence of peacekeepers in the districts and announces the 75th anniversary of the Hunger Games: The Quarter Quill. The new games seem to withdraw all the rules and make no exceptions. With rumors of uprisings through out the country, will Katniss continue to be a catalyst for the rebellion, will she run into the wild with her family, or will she find herself once again fighting for her life in the arena.

This was another great read! I found myself up, once again, turning pages while burning the midnight oil. Really you should go read it...

Learned? What is best is rarely what is easiest.
