Catching Fire - Hunger Games 2 Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Catching Fire - Hunger Games 2

A young girl is facing the biggest adventure of her life by facing The Hunger Games for the second time in only one short year. Katniss Everdeen is a typical teenage girl in a post-appocolyptic world, at least she was before the reaping that almost drew her sister into the hunger games. Now Katniss is 'the girl on fire,' a hero to the rebellion though she doesn't even know it yet. What she does know is that she's going to be sent back into the worst period of her life, back into the games that nearly destroyed her, only this time she's going to be facing hardened killers who have already won the games once, and she'll have to kill the boy she's not quite sure she loves, but not quite sure she doesn't either. After all there's no way The Capital is going to let both her and Peeta live again. What she doesn't know is that she has more than just Peeta on her side in the arena. In fact, Katniss has very few enemies in the arena and possibly even fewer on the outside. When it comes down to saving the world, it just might be Katniss that is chosen to lead the fight.

Best part of story, including ending: I really liked this story because the scenes were so vivid you could almost imagine yourself right there. Whether it was the house Katniss inherited for winning the games or the battles in the games themselves this story had excellent descriptions.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when Katniss is attacked by one of her teammates, one of the people she believes is on her side. She feels many emotions at once and she tries desperately to fight for her life. This was very well written for so much happening at the same time.

Opinion about the main character: I really liked Katniss because she was a character that anyone could relate to rather than a perfect character. She seemed like a normal person who was thrust into becoming a great person which makes her more relatable.
