Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Here we have the second book in The Hunger Games trilogy. The second installment sees our hero, Katniss Everdeen returning to District 12 and dealing with the fallout caused by her decisions at the end of the first book.

Its hard to write a review for the second book in a trilogy without spoiling, so that will account for the sparseness of this particular review.

The President of Panem, President Snow, is worried that Katniss's actions will case the districts to rise up in rebellion.  He basically tells Katniss to fix the unrest, or reap the consequences.

She doesn't and she does.

In short, after a victory tour around Panem, Katniss is thrown back into the Hunger Games.  On purpose?  Fate?  Coincidence?  Could be any of those, but still we are taken back to the viscous games.  But this time all is not as it seems.

Overall, I enjoyed this installment as much as I liked the first.  The book ends on quite the cliffhanger, and there is a lot of confusion as to what really happens.  I'm currently working on the third book, and so far, it has yet to disappoint as well.
