Book Review: Catching Fire

Here is my review on book 2 of The Hunger Games, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins:

      At the start of Catching Fire, they talk a lot about Katniss and Peeta's lives in Victors Village. That is where the winners of the Hunger Games live. Katniss' only neighbors were Peeta and Haymitch. Then, President Snow makes an announcement. The victors will compete against each other in the Quarter Quell. Next, they got new peacekeepers. Peacekeepers were the people who made sure that all citizens of Panem follow the rules of the Capitol. The new head peacekeeper whipped Gale because he found out about Gale hunting illegally. He almost bled to death from the whipping.

      Most of the arena was water. Instead of the weapons and supplies being in the Cornucopia like usual, they were in a pile on a mountain. Katniss was allies with Peeta, Finnick, and Mags. There was a force field in the arena. Peeta ran into it. He was dead for awhile. Then, Finnick brought Peeta back to life with mouth to mouth. Next, a deadly fog came. Katniss and Finnick could not carry both Mags and Peeta, so Mags ran into the fog to death. Later in the games, they added Johanna, Wiress, and Beetee to their alliance. Wiress realized that the arena was a clock. There was the fog, the big wave, the monkey attack, and other things that happened at the same time every day. Then Wiress died. After that, Peeta, Katniss, Finnick, Beetee, Johanna, Enobaria, and Brutus were rescued by Plutarch and Haymitch. Then, the part that happened at the end shocked me, especially the last sentence. Peeta and some of the others were captured by the Capitol. In the last sentence, Gale said, "There is no more District 12" to Katniss.

      I rate this book an A+ and it is by far the best book of the three in the Hunger Games trilogy.
