Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won the annual competition described in Hunger Games, but the aftermath leaves these victors with no sense of triumph. Instead, they have become the poster boys for a rebellion that they never planned to lead. That new, unwanted status puts them in the bull's-eye for merciless revenge by The Capitol.

I have become deliberately addicted on The Hunger Games. Thanks to my friend, I wouldn’t love this book. Well, as you can see… I am now! I awarded myself a complete set of the trilogy a few weeks ago. And I didn’t disappoints me for the second time. Let’s see what I thought about Catching Fire.

The Plot. The first book really is great. The fight sequence, dramas and all. Catching Fire totally reached to its new level. It became darker and menacing. The feeling of excitement and anticipation drives you to finish reading it.

Details of the story is so precise, you’ll actually feel that you’re in the actual book. Collins amazed me on how brilliantly she wrote Catching Fire. It was do amazing it really blew me away. I was completely breathless. The contents of originality was in depth and precise. Every intensive action was literally to be loved.

In my love of action on the arena. Catching Fire never disappoints me. At first I thought there were no games involved at all. Well, I am definitely wrong. This part is not a spoiler, if you think so jump on the next part of this review. The part two of this book is about The Quell. That is more I could say and I’ll let you discover it more about it yourselves. That is my most favorite scene ever written on this book. Awesomely, it was described perfectly and very fresh. I was applauding on how cool that was. I was surprised about it, when I found the most detailed explanation about the arena. Goodness! I really love this book! :]

There are more from this book than it appears to. Unexpected and unwanted events truly make me marked this one as my most favorite book of the trilogy. Allegiance, trust, lies, sacrifice and all of that – totally a great piece of work!

The Characters. I am amazed by the progress of the characters. There are new faces to acknowledge and some are taken off the picture. [No spoiling here] I am proud how Katniss grew on this one and how obvious how vulnerable she is without Peeta. Ohhh… Peeta! Lol! Aside from them. Gale has been one on the focus. Remember that he usually mentioned by Katniss on The Hunger Games. Well, fortunately for him, he has a part here now. You will learn how he truly acts and not just by mentioning from Katniss herself.

Everything has changed from the first book. I mean everything. I am glad to know about Finnick, Johanna and a lot more. They contributed much and it makes this book more interesting and alluring to read.

Well, this does involves Gale and wondering who I will choose for Katniss. I should say, I am still voting for Peeta. Just like I mentioned about my review of The Hunger Games last month. I vote Peeta for Katniss! Peeta! Peeta! Peeta!  :]

Flaw? Nope. This is a remarkable piece of art. It truly devours me so much on loving it more. It’s been awhile I read this book and I only posted my review about this just now. I can still remember that whole scenario of the book. No flaws can’t take my eyes off this one! :]

A great 2nd installment for The Hunger Games Trilogy. It is promising that I am definitely sure you’re gonna love this one! I extremely recommend this book! Collins really caught me off-guard on Catching Fire! A great salute for this one! *applause*
