The book that I have just finished was Catching FIre by Suzanne Collins. The reason why I read this book was because it was on my list of books that I would have liked to read and I got chosen to read it for book club. I liked this book because it had a lot of action in it but some parts of it were a little slow and I found them confusing. The reason why I thought that the book was confusing is because I had never read the Hunger Games which is the first book in the series.The other book in the series is The Mocking Jay. I did not like this book because I thought that it was confusing and I just don’t like books that take place in the future and that will most likely never happen in life.
In Catching Fire the victors of the 75th Hunger Games which is a game where 2 people get chosen from each of the 12 districts and are forced to fight each other and fight to the end. The 2 victors are Katniss Everdeen, and Peeta Mellark but there was an exception to the rule because Katniss and Peeta were the last 2 alive and said that they were going to eat poison berries and kill themselves and the people from the capital said there would be an exception and there could be 2 victors. So both Katniss and Peeta won the games. In the hunger games ever 25 years there is a special edition to the games like in the 50th the Hunger games had two times the amount of participants in that years game than any other, and there twist for the 75th games its that the competitors are all victors from previous games. So Katniss who has no luck at all has to go back into the games for another year. So she is forced to go back to fighting when she is just coming out of the games from the year before.
One part of the book that I liked in the book is when Katniss is giving the speech to district 11 where Rue a competitor in the hunger games lived. The part of this scene is when when the old man does the whistle that is a sign a rebelling and the end of her speech and she gets rushed out of there Effie hears the gunshot of the old man and Peeta says to Effie that it was just an old truck backfiring. I liked this scene because I thought that it was ridiculous that the old man was shot for making noises and then no one else was punished after the whole crowd also repeated him.
I would not recommend this book for anyone who likes and realistic books because it is not realistic at all and I just wouldn’t recommend this book at all I did not like it!!!!
