News: Catching Fire Summary

I was just pre-ordering Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games, when I noticed that a product description has been added to Amazon.

Warning: Includes THG spoilers.

Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark. But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capitol and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have just won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.

A rebellion? Capitol revenge? Could this book sound any better?! Release day is September 1st in the US, and you can pre-order here.

I'm so excited for this!!! I wonder when it will be out in the UK though? I liked the UK cover for THG better than the US one.

I really cant wait to read this book. I was so gutted when i finished reading the first one and realised i had to wait so long for the next one. Do you know when its out in the UK?

I agree with H i think the UK covers look much better.

i really hope katniss ends up w/ gale. he's so much better than peeta. but don't u wonder if somethings going on w/ peeta-i mean he's so calm and totally in love w/ katniss and he knows that she doesn't love him now (read chapter i of cf) something sinister is going on
anyway its TEAM GALE for me!

I loved Hunger Games. We had to read it for school. At first I didn't think I was going to like it because it's about kids killing kids, but it was one of the best book i have ever read. I cant wait to read Catching Fire. And i also think Katniss should be with Peeta

I loved Hunger Games. I just wish Katniss ended up with Peetaa!! Even though I don't know much about Gale and maybe he loves her just the same as Peeta does, but I have already had an attachment to Peeta...

Anonymous said...

Team Peeta. I hope Katniss ends up with Peeta, come one she makes Peeta's life worth living and it was love at first sight for Peeta, but her and Gale share so much in common. who knows well just have to wait for the third book to see who shell choose.

Anonymous said...

Please, stop with the "team Peeta" versus "team Gale" nonsence! It diminishes the whole meaning of the book

is catching fire as good as hunger games? which did you like best? which one is more intersting? i loved hunger games! im excited to read catching fire! ;D

Anonymous said...

THG stands for the hunger games... who do you think katniss should end up with? gale or peeta?

Jesse said...

You people don't get it. Peeta faked the crush to get them sympathy in the hunger games. They faked falling in love. He just probably grown to like her over the course of the hunger games

I just finished reading The Hunger Games yesturday, and it's the best book ever! I'm going to start reading the second one tomorrow, because my friend has already read the book and she has it. I hope Katniss and Peeta end up together. Team Peeta!!!

OMG Best book ive EVER read in my WHOLE life. Im kinda of a hopeless romoantic, and i LOVE suspense, so THG killed me! I felt like I was in the arena with them, and feeling Peeta's hand on my cheek. I recomend it to EVERYONE. I almost cried when I finished the book. My english teacher had Catching Fire, can't wait to snatch it off her book shelf!!!
