Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, Book 2)

Catching Fire - Suzanne  Collins This is the second book of a trilogy. I read the first book, the Hunger Games, a little over a month ago. I enjoyed the Hunger Games very much, but felt that it was missing something. The time spent in the arena was not as suspenseful as I would have liked, although the world Collins created was special.

This follow up was even better. It picks up right where the first book left off, and it continue to explore the world that Collins created. It is hard to review this without giving too much away, but I like the whole possible rebellion angle that the book takes. For a book that is considered to be a young adult title, there is a good amount of violence and death that makes the story real. My only criticism of the book would be that the central character, Katniss, sometimes seems to be too naive. She can't really see anything coming. However, that is part of what makes her endearing, so it is not a strong criticism.
