This book is much better than the first, I think, because the reader knows somewhat to expect when the plot takes a twist. I hope you all read this book! :)

Catching Fire picks up right where Hunger Games left off. Victors from the 74th Hunger games Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are on the victory tour to all the districts. Prior to the tour Katniss is visited by President Snow, who explains that he is angry with her for breaking the rules at the end of the last Hunger Games. Snow informs Katniss that when she defied the Capitol, she inspired rebellion in the districts. He tells her that she must convince the entire country of Panem that what she did was not an act of defiance, but that she was too in love with Peeta that she wasn't thinking straight. They then learn that for the next Hunger Games, the Quarter Quell, former champions are to be the competitors once again. Katniss and Peeta are going back into the arena. Catching Fire is everything The Hunger Games was and more. More of the story takes place outside the arena than within, and though there is plenty of action-packed combat, there is more on the power and politics of the Capital and the topics of sacrifice, morality and oppression. A 5 out of 5 stars.
