Book Review #2: Catching Fire

Another book review of The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, it is the second book, Catching Fire. Finally I have finished reading both of them. Phew!

♦♦♦

In the 75th hunger games, which is the third Quarter Quell, President Snow announces that the participants of the 75th hunger games are those who won at another hunger games and still alive. This announcement makes the only winners from District 12, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, have to fight in the arena for the second time.

Katniss and Haymitch, their mentor, agree to keep Peeta safe though saving Peeta means killing Katniss. In the arena, they meet another 22 winners, 2 from each district. They make a team with Mags and Finnick Odair from District 4, Wiress and Beetee from District 3, and Johanna Mason from District 7.

While they are fighting in the arena, many districts start the rebellion against Capitol. Mockingjay, the symbol of rebellion, are everywhere. And Katniss begins to think that District 13 has not gone, at all.

That was a short synopsis of Catching Fire. This book is as terrific as The Hunger Games! Must read 🙂

Book Review #1: The Hunger Games

I am going to make a review of one of my favourite books: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Well, it is not a new released book, actually it was released in 2008, 3 years ago. But I just bought it few months ago. Quiet late, isn’t it? Hahahaha.

♦♦♦

A 16 years old girl named Katniss Everdeen lives with his mother and sister in the poorest district in the country of Panem, District 12, with Capitol as its capital. There used to be 13 districts, but the 13th district is gone when a rebellion against Capitol happened.

Every year, Capitol held a TV show called The Hunger Games. It is a ‘game’ with 24 participants of 12-18 years old boys and girls, and each district has to send one boy and one girl. Only one person could be alive.

Katniss volunteers for the 74th games replaces her younger sister, Primrose Everdeen. With Peeta Mellark from the same district, they go to Capitol where the start point is. There, they meet Haymitch as their mentor, Cinna, Effie Trinket, Avox girl, and many more.

In the arena, they find it difficult to trust anyone, even your partner from the same district. They kill each other to be the only winner and stay alive. They are fighting against death.

That was a very short review of The Hunger Games, and the most exciting parts are not there. I must say, The Hunger Games is a trilogy, the second book titled Catching Fire and the last is Mockingjay. I haven’t read both, but I have to read it soon.
You must read it! I’m sure you will not be disappointed 🙂
