Review: Suzanne Collins – Catching Fire

suzanne-collins-catching-fire-e1332001505516All I can say about this book is that it was better than the first, which is saying something because I loved the first one. There are plenty of reviews of this book on many WordPress blogs that will tell you what happens in this book, so I don’t really want to go into that too much here. Besides, I know my dad is starting reading the first one, so I don’t want to spoil this one too much for him (if he even reads this!).

When the first book ended, I thought it had been ended in a bit of a weird place and I was curious to find out what happened next. Suzanne Collins sure knows how to shock her readers though. Whatever I expected to happen, it was definitely not this!

This series is definitely more about the plot than the actual writing, but the plot is just non-stop. Every time you think it might slow down a bit, it’s back up again with another twist.

And just like the first book, this book is left at a cliff hanger, with big question marks about what is going to happen next. I was happy that Gale was brought back into the story at the end, but I’m sure that that after what I’ve read so far, nothing is going to run smoothly in book number three.

Another 5/5 review for this book – brilliant!

5-5

Now Reading: Suzanne Collins – Catching Fire (The Hunger Games Pt 2)

suzanne-collins-catching-fire-e1332001505516After the speed in which I read the first book in this series, I can’t wait to get started on this. I might have to slow down a bit though or it’ll all be over too quickly! After the end of the last book, I really have no idea what will happen in this one. My friend Abi mentioned something about Gale, so maybe he will have more involvement in this book?

With it being Mother’s Day tomorrow (eek – should probably go and buy a card or something!), I probably won’t have as much time to read this one as I did the first one. Hopefully the weather will be nice and I can take my mum out somewhere. 🙂
