The Book Challenge Week #2: Catching Fire

The second part of the Hunger Games Trilogy was pretty decent. I now know who my favorite character is: Finnick. They better pick someone rad and super f-cking hot to play him in the second movie or I am sure I will not be the only one pissed off.

OK. So I can't go on talking about this book without giving spoilers about the first one...so if you haven't read the first one do not continue to read my recap. (SPOILER ALERT)

After Katniss saves both her and Peeta at the end of The Hunger Games people in the Districts start thinking that they can flip the bird at the Capitol as well. The Capitol people get pissed and the only way to kick the rebellion in the face is to kill off Katniss...so they make the 75th Hunger Games a game of victors and Katniss and Peeta get thrown back into the arena.

Kind of depressing, but I am super happy about the introduction of Finnick. He is now my favorite character. Kind of this gorgeous douche bag. Love him. Finnick is a former victor who is fighting in the 75th games with Katniss and Peeta...he adds humour, which of course is a must for me.

I did not like the lack of Gale in this one. It pisses me off because I am definitely on Team Gale, but I am thinking that he is going to die in the next one or she is going to pick Peeta, which seems lame.

Onto book three. This will make or break the series.

Recommended.
