Weekend Book Club: Catching Fire
After devouring The Hunger Games last week, I sure was happy to have the sequel, CATCHING FIRE, on hand.
And yes, it was every bit as good as The Hunger Games.
Here's the blurb:
After winning the brutal Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen returns to her district, hoping for a peaceful future. But Katniss starts to hear rumours of a deadly rebellion against the Capitol. A rebellion that she and Peeta have helped to create.
As Katniss and Peeta are forced to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. Unless Katniss and Peeta can convince the world that they are still lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying...
Loved the deeper characterisation in this book, as we get to know Katniss and Peeta more.
And while I was shocked they had to enter the arena again for another round of games, I found those pages flying by till the surprising end. More please!
MOCKINGJAY, the 3rd and final book in this amazing trilogy, is released in 3 days.
Watch the stampede!
