Books 20 & 21: CATCHING FIRE & MOCKINGJAY
Hunger Games Trilogy 3 Book Series. The Hunger Games trilogy : The Hunger Games , Catching Fire and Mockingja y by Suzanne Collins was inspired by a blend of the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur , a program on TV where people were competing, and another where kids were fighting a war while the author was channel surfing. According to Wikipedia,. At the end of the first instalment of the trilogy, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark have returned to District 12 after winning the annual televised Hunger Games event in the Capitol. In Catching Fire , Katniss and Peeta have to go on the victory circuit, making an appearance in all the districts and in the Capitol. Both have to keep up the appearance of being in love. There should only have been one winner at the games.
If you ask me, this book is absolutely breathtaking.

See a Problem?
Because as uncomfortable as that world is, dystopia seems always on the horizon when we look at current events in both politics and the environment. The consensus was that they present a similarly violent future, but that GAMES was far more violent in its execution. Yes, the main character kills off several people. But the games are meant to be a violent reality show where children kill other children. A kid can read any book they want to attempt in my house, only if I think it may be age-inappropriate, I will read it along with them and make sure that some elements are discussed.
When I first began reading the novel, I dreaded that my interest in the story might slip away from me. However, as I continued to read, every turn of the page seemed more enjoyable than the last; and eventually, it became clear to me that Collins has done a phenomenal job with sustaining readers' attention and transitioning the story into a new narrative. When readers left off in the last novel, Katniss and Peeta, in unison, emerged victorious as the winners of the 74th annual Hunger Games. As Katniss returns to district 12 though, she struggles with accepting the realization that her life will never be the same. Her feelings of dread culminate when she shares a conversation with President Snow, who threatens the life of her family if Katniss does not abide by his orders. Snow, and other leaders in the Capitol, have seen Katniss' acts as rebellious, and will do whatever it takes to suppress uprisings.
I will start the review by saying that Suzanne was not able to continue the momentum from the first novel. I am sure that everyone was waiting for the scene at the train station on the return of the victors but guess what, Suzanne just skips the whole coming back scene and tells us about it in the past tense, which is kind of annoying. In the start, the novel is quite boring and I was disappointed by the lack of any progress in the story. The fast paced action, due to which 'The Hunger Games' received acclaim, is not seen anywhere except until the very end. Once again, Suzanne fails to provide any good descriptions of places.
