Catching Fire & Mockingjay

Previously I reviewed The Hunger Games, the first book in Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games Trilogy.

Shortly after reading the first book, I went down to the store and picked up the next two books in the series at the same time. I tore through them in less than a week.

Catching Fire is the direct sequel to The Hunger Games. It picks up several months after Katniss survives the 74th Hunger Games. She, Peeta, Haymitch, and the rest have to do tours to all of the cities in the country of Panem. Along the way, President Snow decides he wants Katniss dead and… well, the book ends with one of the biggest cliffhangers I’ve ever encountered (the other big cliffhanger being the ending to The Girl Who Played With Fire, which should be reviewed here shortly as well).

Mockingjay. A creature that’s the cross between a Jabberjay and a Mockingbird. The Jabberjay was created by The Capital to spy on dissidents, they can hear words and recite them back in the voice of the original speaker. And a Mockingbird is well, a Mockingbird, a bird that it’s a sin to kill.

Katniss has found herself as the figurehead of the Rebellion. She wants Peeta back. She wants Snow dead. Will she get her way? I’m not telling. This was a great trilogy and I would not be surprised if a 4th book comes out. Well, I would be because this book ended so nicely, but I’d read it. You know I would.
