The second book of the Hunger Games series, Catching Fire, is a very good read and may have been just as good as the first one. The story picks up months after Katniss and Peeta return from the Games and are now living their lives in the victor’s village. Katniss is unaware that her actions in the games have inspired a massive uprising from several of the districts, and unknowingly has become the symbol for these riots. After hearing of the riots that have taken place, Katniss is unsure what to do. She plans on escaping the district altogether then decides to stay. The story really takes off when the contestants for the new games are announced with an unprecedented event. Winners from previous games are drawn randomly to once again go back into the Games. Of course Katniss is elected and must go back. This was a really quick read and a must read if you have read the first one.
